Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
My Maytag (MAH5500B) gasket has mold..My mom has the same washer and her is broken..her gasket dosn't have any mold so I want to change the gasket. Do you know how to take out the drum and change the gasket? I don't want to take the washer apart more than I have to.
Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversable, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everthing. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. We used strong vice grips and much struggling and sweat, and #@*&%!&@ and finally got it on without damage to the new gasket. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

Washer front load door boot seal kit with drain, plug and clamp. Gray rubber. Part 12002533 Make WPL QTY $81.50 my gasket was replaced with a "mold free gasket" so i though - now the problem is back again (pull back gasket & look under there - bleach has little or no effect in removing the mold - guess i'll shell out 81.50 for a new gasket. i'll remember this.....when i buy a new machine.

Just did one, takes about 1-2 hours. You have to be slightly smarter than a ****** eatin' moron to do the work. Not too tough!
