Hello,
The point of the washer is to hold the spring down , This way the spring A- Can not bend , B shoot off and hit you in the eye thumb.gif, and C to get them more tighter without damage , and the plastic one is on top just because , if you used the plastic on with the spring it will break over time ,.

Why its always good to work on a nice flat surface with lots of lights. Not that I do it all the time but it can minimize these types of things.
