SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Door Boot Change
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!

The bottom of my gasket was torn open all along the bottom. I ordered the gasket but I wanted to see if I could repair it so we could catch up on the wash. I bought some rubber contact cement that cost me under $4.00. I Glued the gasket rubber together by overlapping the the seem a little. Still had a hole in one spot. I had a sheet of rubber around my shop that was about 1/16 of an inch thick and cut it about three inches wide.. I used a little sandpaper to rough it up a little. I cut it in two.
You have to apply contact cement to the gasket and the rubber you are applying it to. ( I dry fit it first to make sure it would fit). Just to make sure it would hold I also glued rubber to the outside bottom of the gasket to reinforce the glued seam. . You need to take off the front panel to do this and there are directions to do this if you search for it. I was able to run the washer in about an hour after the repair.
If your washer is in the basement and are not afraid of getting the floor wet give it a try. I have run the machine with heavy loads for two days and no leaks. I feel confident that the repair will last for a long time. A cheap fast fix. It took me about forty five minutes. Make sure you unplug the machine to do this. Good luck.
