It really helps if you can lean the washer back against the wall.  If you can't lean it back wedge a short length of 2x4 between the tub and front panel.  Put a little soap on the lip of the boot. Use the wedges that come with the boot to hold the spring in place while you position it with both hands.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE  BUT I THINK YOU MIGHT BE THINKING OF A DIFFERENT MACHINE. THE ONE I HAVE IS NO WAY TO TAKE THE FRONT OFF SO IN ORDER TO GET TO THE BOOT YOU EITHER NEED TO REMOVE THE TOP SECTION INCLUDING THE TUB TO ACCESS THE BOOT. I TRIED TO GET TO THE BOOT FROM THE TOP AND BOTTOM BUT TO NO AVAIL.

I know which washer it is, it's a 2.5 cube Frigidaire.  It is a PITA to do but I've done many and can do them in less than 30 minutes.  Here's a video.
