Drum Part no

What is the series for my MDE9700AYW serial no. 13220926GP I think the part no. I've found is 35001130 for the drum assy w/ seals etc. I can't find a parts manual. Also why are these drums braking?

The series for your unit is the first 2 digits of the serial number. so yours is "13"
if you are ordering any parts then you need to use the lowest number that does not go above 13. so if it says part is for series 14 and over then that is not what you want. if it says series 10 thats what you do need.

Is there something else i can use to replace the felt seal without buying a whole new drum on a maytag neptune model MDE9700AYW

On older maytag dryer's the felt seal wasa seperate part and not part of the drum..the problem is i do not know if the drum on the newer and older dryers is the same diameter they look similar in size but if it isn't exactly right may leave a gap where the clothes will get caught in...however the part number for that seperate felt seal is 314820

Felt belt found inside of drum

Hi - these are used to minimize the metal to metal contact of the drum & housing.

One will need to remove the top & front panels to gain access to remove the drum, afix felt to end in question and assemble the machine again.

I have a aquarius hotpoint 340, bearing gone

You have to split the drum to replace the bearings

The reason the bearings have gone is that water has leaked into them and the soap content has destroyed the grease

There is a carbon seal on the spider assy which attaches to the back of the drum , this normally cracks so the spider or seal has to be replaced

It sounds like an object has gotten between the drums. How do i remove the inner drum?

disconnect from power, and give yourself some room.
remove screws from rear of top and slide top back, then up to remove.
disconnect harness from control panel, etc then remove screws attaching it to frame and set aside.
now you can get to the outer front covers top screws and i believe there are some on the bottom too, but can't be certain from parts blow up photo, may just slip onto a clip.
then the inner drum support will be visible with rollers, seal, etc. and your there.
just watch the metal edges, it is often very sharp from the stamping process that cuts them out.
hope this helps,
best of luck,

MAH4000AWW Bearing Noise When Spinning

12002022 is a seal kit only. The outer tub replacement is the correct fix, The part number for your unit is 22002907 and crosses over to 22004465. BTW. the replacement tub includes the seal kit and for the price I usually change the spinner assy at the same time..There are two part numbers for that.. It depends on your washer series which is determined by the first 2 numbers of your serial number... Hope this helps... Bill

We have the same machine. The drum also broke so we had it professionally installed. It wasn't done well enough and after the 90 day repair warranty, other problems developed. We still don't have a dryer and the next repair is $500 as other parts were damaged and we didn't catch it within the 90 days.
Bottom line: do have it professionally installed but be sure to ask about their work guarantee. As soon as you have any problem at all, call them back.
