Maytag MAV7200 Washer......needs seal and bearing kit

Trying to diagnose self repair for my washer. Was quoted more than the new washer replacement cost.....so I want to fix it myself. I understand that I have to remove the tub......got everything else opened up......just cant figure out how to get the tub out to get to the seal/bearing. Has 4 bolts inside tub and a spline.....can't figure out how to go further. Also.......need to get the replacement part number(s) for the bearing/seal kit.......and a source to purchase. Laundry is piling up! Help!

I HAD TO REPLACE THE SPIN BEARING ON MY MAYTAG ATLANTIS WASHER MAV9750,
it was making a loud noise during sin cycle, like a bad bearing would
make, jet engine kind of noise, i did replace the bearing and made a web
site with pictures on how to do it, since it almost takes all the parts
out, it will show you how to get to most of the parts in the machine, and
i also included links for downloading the repair manual, and parts at
appliance parts pros web site

Where can I get a replacement tub bearing kit?


The part number you will need is W10435302. This KIT contains a tube of high temp grease, 1 tube of Pliobond glue, 1 bearing shaft, 1 upper and 1 lower bearing, 1 rubber tub seal, 1 thrust washer, 1 aluminum spacer, 1 set of instructions--check it carefully--if **anything** is missing, take it back and get another. You will also HAVE to have a special tool kit to remove the old bearings and install the new ones. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE KIT EXACTLY. The bearing repair tool kit is W10447783. You will need a 2lb steel mallet. If you've never done this before, I strongly advise calling for service. When setting the new bearings, that aluminum spacer has to be JUST loose enough to be able to move but *not* move freely. It's a "feel" sort of thing when tightening up the tool to press the new bearings in. I hope I helped you!

Loud washer! The last 5-7 minutes of the wash, the washer becomes very, very loud. This occurs in light loads as well as large loads. This just started about 6 weeks ago, any ideas?


My husband and I spent 4 hours Labor Day replacing the bearing and seal in my Maytag Neptune washer. Worn bearing are what is causing the loud noise. Maytag will only sell you the complete drum assembly. However, if you are mechanically inclined, you can purchase the bearings, 6206RS and 6207RS (we got ours from a local bearing company) and the seal kit can be purchased from repairclinic.com. There is a video on YouTube showing how to replace the bearings and seal. Our washer is now as quiet as it was when new!

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...

Makes loud noise in spin cycle


The problem is that the seals are leaking and allowing water to attack the tub bearings.
You need new tub seals and bearings.....not as difficult as it may seem.
see u tube video on replacing maytag seals and bearings

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?

When the washer is in spin cycle it makes screehing noise!


You peobably need bearings... See www.neptunebearing.com for replacement bearings and they also rent a special tool designed for the Neptune bearings and it includes use of a DVD that shows you how to disassemble Neptune, replace bearings and install the seal kit.

Washer make a loud squeak when the spinning stops


its the brake, just as long as it stops, dont worry about it, made a web page that has pics on how to replace the spin bearing on the maytag atlantis washer, after searching the net on how to, finding the manual, not explanatory, i decided to make this a simple 1 page web site, with lots of pictures, i hope this can help someone else in doing this job. since it would cost too much money for a repairman to do the job, better to buy a new one instead, i tackled the job. since it basically takes apart the whole machine, it might help others even if they dont have the spin bearing problem but other parts to replace,
