SOURCE: maytag washer door boot

   Remove 2 screws holding door hinge to cabinet and remove door.  Then remove 2 screws opposite these. Grab front panel with thumbs at area of screws you removed and pull outward with thumbs. Panel will pivot forward.  Remove panel from lower clips.  At top of exposed area remove 2 5/16 screws.  Remove brackets under them. 
  Open dispenser and remove 4 screws.  Careful not to drop in dispenser.  Remove dispenser frame assembly.
  You can now raise top of washer to a 90 degree position.
   Now back to front exposed area.  Grab boot where it contacts front and peel out of groove.  Also remove two screws holding light assembly and remove cover.  Remove all 5/16 screws holding front assembly and the ones on top area where it is on a bevel.  Remove front assembly by folding up and onto top. 
  Now we are at the boot.  Remove spring and wire assembly holding boot to drum.  Make note on boot position and spring position.  Remove boot.  Install new boot onto drum.  wrap wire around drum with ends at top.  Now the fun!  Hook spring to on end of wire and using vise-grips,  pull to other end to hook into wire.  It can be done,  honest.
  Now just reverse to reassemble.  should be instructions with boot.   Good luck!

SOURCE: my maytag neptune washer will stop working and

HI, this error code is signaling an issue with the fill actions. Your washer seems to be having problems when it try's to fill the tub with water.

First, make sure there's water getting to the washing machine. Make sure the water faucets are open all the way.Check for kinked hoses as well.

If the hoses are fine and, the faucets are fully open, this will confirm a inlet water valve malfunction. you will need to replace this failed component in this case. it has failed.

SOURCE: my maytag neptune washer smells musty. what is

I owned a maytag neptune washer and had to run dishwashing liquid thru it occasionally to get the smell to go away. Finally we learned about a new gasket retrofit that they were doing which was covered by the maytag company we called and they installed it for free and the smell stopped. I had that washer for about 10 years and probably spent as much fixing it over the years as it cost. I now have a whirlpool duet front loader and love it. no smell and not problems. Try the electric dish washer soap.

When my washer was on the spin cycle it was making a very loud high squeaking/buzzing noise, could this be the belt and how do i fix the problem? Thanks Crystil


The belt would probably squeak in the agitate direction also. I suspect a tub or clutch bearing is going out. If you find signs under the washer that it's been leaking, the tub bearing needs to be changed. It's a major disassembly job. The clutch bearing may be easier.

Agitator does not work


Hi,
Your motor runs in forward and reverse...the spin is one way and the agitate is the other... that direction has failed. Replace the motor...

Our maytag neptune top load washer is flashing a Lr code. Is there anything we can do without calling a service?


Lr = Locked Rotor. This could be a Motor Controller failure, a Control Board Failure or a Motor failure. I would start by pulling off the front cover and see if you can rotate the Clutch Pulley CW the wash/agitate direction of the Clutch Pulley and CCW the Spin direction of the Clutch Pulley to make sure there is no binding in the drive system. Follow safety procedures in the Service manual remove power to the washer before you do this.

This could be a difficult issue to troubleshoot with out a known good Control Board and Motor Controller…..Rich

Our maytag neptune front load wash machine squeaks right before it changes directions in the wash cycle. what's wrong with it?


Your belt is stretched...........

There is only one belt, you have to access it from the back, removing the center panel. These belts are really tight when you install the new one you have to rotate it on, and you may thing the belt is too small, but it requires force. Some models you can move motor by loosening the lock bolt to gain some play, usually not much if any.

Remember to unplug before service, and watch for sharp metal edges....

Maytag Performa PAVT920AWW washer makes a squealing sound


i am sorry but i had this problem happen before with my customer maytag performa, what i found out is that the brakes become crystallized, causeing a squeaking noise, remember in agitation, the brakes stops the the drum from spinning, what i advise you to do is change out the breaks or take the brake pads and rub them with sand paper

thanks

Neptune washer will not go past the first wash cycle


All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This will require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

Maytag washer MAV4757AW load squeaks during agitation only


You may have some bad bearing in the shaft assembly. i would take a look at this. also, if its not a direct drive, you may have a bad belt as well.
