    Thank you so much for directions and for the encouragement that "it can be done". Front loaders are such a pain.

Hi,
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.

Take care

Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW burn smell (doesn't appear to be hose)


if you have a maytag neptune washer that ran up until now you got your money's worth,that's the machine that put maytag out of business,if it's smoking and ripping the boot it sounds like the tub bearing is gone and you'll have to replace the washer,if it's load in the spin like marbles are rolling around in it that's the problem,but i wouldn't put a cent into that machine.

I have a Maytag Neptune 1st Generation and the washer door gasket always molds, how to clean and how to prevent molding


The Maytag MAH300AWW was the first generation front load washer. Your MAH5500BWW is a much newer version and has a boot drain and door venting to minimize the mold. Just be sure your drain (bottom center of the boot) is clear. Use a solution of 1/2 cup of Granular Dishwashing Detergant and 1 cup of Chlorine Bleach added directly into the tub. Run the machine through a hot was cycle (with NO clothes inside) every few months and this will reduce or eliminate the mold.

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 .
