Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
I am attempting to change the door boot on our Maytag Washer. I ordered the part and I'll be damned if I am going to pay someone hundreds of dollars to come and put a rubber on my washer. I need step by step instructions in total idiot proof, layman's terms. Help! Thanks!
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!
