Are you talking about the tub boot spring?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there are 2 rings on the seal ,tub to door and the outer ring is giving me problems of pulling out of the frame
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Yes that one is a bear to do....what you need to do is get it placed around the door then lubricate the tub boot channel and spring clamp good with DAWN. Now get the spring clamp started and the bottom and you should be about the 3 and 6 oclock positions using your thumbs under the clamp....The key is you have to use steady STRAIGHT UPWARD movement not pulling or varying from that while pushing up on the clamp to get it to seat back in without continually pulling off the small plastic edge. STEADY and STRAIGHT up using your thumbs it will hurt a bit, but the soap should make its slide around your thumbs and gasket fine.
