I have a Maytag neptune washing machine mod.#mah5500bww that sounds like bearings are going bad .My question is can I buy the bearing or do I have to buy the outer tub to get the bearings


yes you can buy the bearing to put in. it is by no means easy. they make a tool to inst. the bearing. it cost a arm and a leg buy tho. you may also find if you do take it apart that the shaft that rides in the bearing may be bad. that shaft is part of the inner tub. and that is way more then you want to put into the unit to repair it.

I need to know how to remove the bearing from the drum. I have split the outer drum but can't get the shaft out of the back of the outer drum? My washing machine is a Hotpoint WT 960


this just takes a bit of mucle and time.

remove rear pulley and then refit screw (without washer) into shaft. screw the whole way in. then using a lump hammer knock shaft out. may take a good bit of hammerin.

knock bearing out then and also unclog the weep hole in bearing housing.

grease the bearing housing and press in new bearing and seal.

if old shaft damaged ( which prob is if hard to knock out) you will need to replace it.

screws holding shaft to drum usually impossible to undo so drill them out using a 8mm bullet bit.

fit new shaft, put some bearing grease on the bearing seal and re-assemble the drum

Progressively louder on spin maytag neptune model# MAH5500BWW serial#C8028996LC


You have a bad rear drum bearing ( unfortunantly , so do I ) . This involves removing the inner drum and outer drum . The complete rear of the outer drum , has to be replaced , due to the bearing is already installed in the new one . Very expensive to have done and very time consuming to do yourself . You probably should invest in a different washer . Front load washer manufacturers , have not come up with a way to support the front of an inner drum as well as supporting the rear also . Until this happens , rear bearing problems and excess expense for repair , will continue to be the downfall of front loading washers .

The metal tub has come loose within the housing. It was making a terrible noise. I looked inside the door and the stainless steel drum is disengaged. The rubber gasket and all is fine. Model #...


Two possibilities, one that the drum broke off of the supporting shaft--very expensive part (but could possibly be welded) and a complete tear-down to fix. The second is that the main bearing just behind the drum is bad. You can replace the bearing--go to a bearing supply house with the old one--cost less than $20, plus full tear-down to remove and replace. We went the bearing route and years later is still working well. If you try to buy parts from GE, they want to sell you the whole outer drum assembly for many penny.

Very loud spin cycle


The link below, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, shows that the rear bearing comes with the outer tub only and is very pricey! I have been unable to find a service agency that offers just the bearing. Very aggravating. www.maytag.com would be a good place to define your issue.

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

The bearing in the duet is attached to the outer rear tub of the washer. You have to remove the whole rear half of the outer tub. Take off the back and you will see all the screws around the tub where they attach together. you have to buy the whole rear half too. They wont let you replace just the bearings.

The Neptune bearings are an interesting breed... Maytag wants you to replace the whole outer tub which includes the bearings installed for $180 or so. You can replace the bearings yourself. See www.tonytool.com to see how it is done. The tool costs $379 or so... but it is designed for the service tech. not the d.i.y.er. But watching the video can give you an idea of how to do it yourself. The bearings were available on www.neptunewaxmotor.com for about $35.00. You will also need the Maytag seal kit 12002022 to complete the job whether you decide to replace bearings or the outer tub.
