Get the bearings here.

Part numbers

You'll also need the seal kit.

These guys have them

Part number

I'm not affiliated with either company. If you can find them elsewhere cheaper more power to you.

Maytag told me I had to buy the tub for around $700.

I am halfway through this repair on mine. I haven't ordered the parts yet.

All the parts should cost you around $60-$70 + shipping.

The bearings are very difficult to remove. Some douche online rents a tool for $400 deposit + like $150 rental fee. I pounded mine out with a metal rod. The tool would probably be easier.

Good luck.

SOURCE: The bearings in the Maytag

If you think that there is no shake or play in the bearings a good wash with kerosene or diesel will take away all the dirt that causes the noise. The use light grease/heavy oil (90) to fill into the bearings.
Tip: repeat the washing with the diesel, use a good small brush and hold a tray under to pour the diesel and collect on to the tray till the noise subsides.
However if the bearings are still noisy then I think you need not replace the drum .
If Helpful credit me for the tip.

Where can I get a replacement tub bearing kit?


The part number you will need is W10435302. This KIT contains a tube of high temp grease, 1 tube of Pliobond glue, 1 bearing shaft, 1 upper and 1 lower bearing, 1 rubber tub seal, 1 thrust washer, 1 aluminum spacer, 1 set of instructions--check it carefully--if **anything** is missing, take it back and get another. You will also HAVE to have a special tool kit to remove the old bearings and install the new ones. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE KIT EXACTLY. The bearing repair tool kit is W10447783. You will need a 2lb steel mallet. If you've never done this before, I strongly advise calling for service. When setting the new bearings, that aluminum spacer has to be JUST loose enough to be able to move but *not* move freely. It's a "feel" sort of thing when tightening up the tool to press the new bearings in. I hope I helped you!

Worth fixing dryer that is getting oil spots on clothes model mah5500bwq


This machine has no oil in the tub assembly. Over a period of time and using cold water washes body oil, dirt and undissolved detergents and fabric softener will accumulate at the water line on the inner wall of the outer tub. After the gunk builds up thick enough parts of it will break loose at times when using hot water and then get on the clothes.

Maytag Neptune Model #mah5500BWW We know it a bearing that's causing the loud noise when it spins. How do you remove the tub to get to the bearing?


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.

Good luck,

Loud noise during spin cycle (Bravos washer) was told the bearing is pressed into the tub. Looking at parts list they show the "basket" and the "tub outer". Is the bearing in the "tub outer"?


Similar issue, lot of racket on final spin and was told only option was a $280 whole tub assembly. Dissasembled tub and removed bearings from shaft. Took to local bearing warehouse and got replacements for <$25. The small one was a Nachi Quest 6005-2NSE9 and the large one was 6006-2NSE9. It took me @ 4-6 hrs in total and had to work to get top bearing onto shaft but much more attractive option than replacement or whole tub. Extremely irritated with Maytag and will NOT give them another dime. A appliance less than 1.5 yr old should not have these issues - cheaply made. Is a shame as Maytag used to mean something, it meant quality but not anymore.

I have a maytag neptune washer model# mah300aww.


Your tub seal leaked water into the tub bearings causing them to fail. Maytag only offers the bearings as part of the outer tub assembly and the repair can be pricey. A little research may turn up a service company in your area that has the tool to replace only the tub bearing. The repair becomes more affordable that way.

Looking for replacement bearings for the outer tub to inner tub on our Maytag FAV6800AWW, S/N 13389034ET. Don't want to replace the whole outer tub assy.


It sounds like you may have to replace the Outer Tub to replace the Outer Tub bearing .....ain't that just peachy.....good job Maytag design team.

If you are the original owner I would press Maytag hard to replace the Outer Tub based on the Outer tub Bearing failure. Their warranty states third thru tenth year Drive Motor, Outer Tub and Sealed Transmission. I’m sure you will need to have a certified Maytag repair service tech certify the failure and fix action required. Why should an Outer Tub bearing replacement cost you $430. Another poor design issue of this machine.

I have Maytag LAT2500AAE. I took off the front cover and I see water leaking from the tub bearing during the rinse cycle. I think I need the Tub Bearing Repair Kit PS60151. Is this a difficult...


Tub bearing replacement on ANY Maytag can be difficult. Even for experienced technicians, it can take 1 to 2 hours as long as there are no surprises (corrosion, stubborn bolt etc). Also, all Maytag washers require specialized tools for removing certain components of the machine.
