You need to remove the door by removing the 4 screws. then you will find on the left and right upper cornners 2 5/16 bolts with hangers remove these and lift the lid you will see ant the top a spring that spring is what holds the band that holds the seal to the drum. make sure when you put that back on that it is in the correct spot . Before removeing anything a good thing to do is to take pictures that way you can refer back to them if you can't remember how to put it back on., If you have any other q1uestions let me know. Also a good pair of vise grips is what i use to put the spring back on.

Loud noise on spin cycle only clothes dry good


Sounds like your bearings and seal need replaced... See Neptune Bearing for information on the Maytag Neptune bearing and 12002022 seal kit. You can also rent a special tool kit that includes the bearings, 12002022 seal kit, bearing spacer, step by step DVD, etc.

I would not run neptune with bad bearings too prevent more damage to the Neptune spinner support, Motor drive system...

I hope this helps you...

Maytag gas dryer MDG6400AWW heats up for 2 minutes and that's it everything else runs. and twice I smelled gas when I opened the dryer door. the timer was replaced 2 years ago. Is there another problem?


turn gas off to dryer. For safety it is best not to wait get your gas company to find leak(i don't think they charge for that)if it is at the control valve you should take the screws that hold the coils down out.Remove coils and rubber O rings and replace all with new ones it comes as a kit

Neptune washer bearing problem Tony tool seems to over simplify


I rented the tool and it worked fine. The replacement steel washer had an extra rubber insert that took me a few assemble/test/disassemble cycles to find. That cost me time and the $90 late surcharge on the rental. All told though, it went as described online and in the dvd that came with the rental. Just see that the replacement parts fully match what you are replacing.

My question is whether someone else has done this and had the new bearings last more than a couple months. Two and a half months in, the washer is winding up as when the first bearings went bad. This is not a good sign, and I question the quality of the bearings.

Any feedback?

MAH4000AWW Bearing Noise When Spinning


12002022 is a seal kit only. The outer tub replacement is the correct fix, The part number for your unit is 22002907 and crosses over to 22004465. BTW. the replacement tub includes the seal kit and for the price I usually change the spinner assy at the same time..There are two part numbers for that.. It depends on your washer series which is determined by the first 2 numbers of your serial number... Hope this helps... Bill

Strong electrical smell with smoke coming out


Check the lower motor control board. See www.neptunehelp.com for disassembly pictures. It is possible you will need to replace the motor control board and motor if you have the original one as Maytag has redesigned these two components due to reliability issues. The new motor conversion kit is part # 12002039.

If there are any burnt components on this board then it will have to be replaced. There is also a 10 amp fusesoldered to the board. if this fuse blows the tub will not move anymore and the motor control board / motor will have to be replaced.

Have you noticed your Neptune's spin cycle getting loud? If so, the seal kit and bearings need to be replaced. See www.neptunebearing.com for more info on the special bearing tool kit you can rent that includes use of a DVD that shows you how to disassemble Neptune, replace bearings and install the seal kit.

Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Washing machine


Hello,

Usually, the LR or 'Locked Rotor' indicates a problem with the motor / motor control board or MBC. The MBC is located near the floor on the right side. See www.neptunehelp.com for disassembly photos. The original MCB's had a high failure rate so Maytag redesigned the MCB and the motor. The motor conversion kit is part number 12002039, which includes the new motor, MCB, harness and takes about an hour to install. You can inspect the MCB for either a blown 10 amp fuse or if you see components that are burnt or discolored. If either of these is the case then you will need the motor conversion kit.

In addition, as your Neptune ages you might notice the spin cycle getting louder to where it will sound like a jet plane taking off. If this is the case then you can replace your bearings and seal kit. See www.neptunebearing.com. You can also rent a special Neptune bearing tool called the tony tool which includes the use of a DVD that shows you how to take apart Neptune, replace bearings and install the 12002022 seal kit. I hope this helps...

A burning smell while Maytag neptune was washing.


Shut down and unplug machine a.s.a.p.! It could be your door latch wax motor failing which will burn the R11 (resistor) and Q6 (triac) on the machine control board. You did not mention which Neptune you had... If it is a MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A or a 2000 stacker and you have not replaced the door latch wax motor (12002535) then your time is up. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for details for the repair kit or you can purchase a new control board and 12002535 wax motor and be up running quickly before the clothes pile get too high.

It could be the seal and/or bearings if the machine is starting to get loud in the high speed spin cycle. If so, See www.neptunebearing.com for the seal and bearing kit plus they offer a special Neptune bearing tool for rent called the tony tool. A Maytag technician will want to charge you $900 to replace the whole outer tub? Why replace it when just the bearings and seal kit need changed?

Bearing noise


rear bearing is pressed into outer drum never changed bearing only usually requires entire drum replacement instead..also shaft on rear of inner basket is probably scored bad and needs replacement too
