Question about Maytag Washing Machines
All the videos I watch on bearing replacement show a snap ring being removed from the back bearing on the drum. Mine has no snap ring and there is no groove for a snap ring to fit into. Is this typical? Is it a problem?
You have the same washer and issue I have it's a compression fit bearing and will require the "tony tool" to remove and install

There are 2 bearings and a seal. To remove inner tub you'll need to use a hammer/mallet or special tools, and you'll need to basically strip the washer to get to the inner tub. Maytag (Whirlpool) does not sell bearings separately, look them up on ebay, use "maytag neptune bearings" as a key phrase. IIRC, the special tool was also available on ebay for lease. Instructions on how to replace bearings are available there also. If no luck on ebay, try googlee for the same key phrase.
