I followed the video which I might say is somewhat misleading for the Maytag Neptune washing machine. This is the one with a recall due to mildew and mold build up on the Door Seal (Bellow). First to take it apart you really need a 8mm socket in order to get into tight spaces. Once you start using the socket everything will come apart quickly the last being removing the old Bellow. I found this is easy if you just roll the spring toward the front using a screw driver. Once it clears the front of the Bellow, the cable will fall off along with the spring. You can now remove the old Bellow. The next step is to insert the new Bellows on the rim of the tube. I started by attaching the drain hose at the bottom and then from the video, started at the top make sure you have it center correctly and worked down one side pushing the Bellows on the rim and then do the same thing to the other side part way. Alternating from one side to the other until you reach the bottom. The Bellow is now on the tube, NOW the hard part. First, the old spring was stretched. I bought a new spring at Home Depot. I next took the cable and placed it around the tube with the ends at the top. Make sure to thread the cable carefully so it is in place. Watch out for plugs and the drain at the bottom of the tube. I attempted to attach the spring by myself using a long nose plier and a Grip plier but just could not stretch is far enough by myself as shown in the video. I next took a 16 ga insulated wire you could also get at Home Depot and attached it to each end of the cable and twisted it together in the middle with pliers so it was tight and cut off the excess wire. I attached one end of the spring through the right eyelet on the cable and using the grip pliers and BOTH hands on the grip pliers pull the spring and threaded it through the left eyelet. Hold the spring in place I now pushed the stretched spring against the back lip of the tube. I removed the 16 ga wire buy cutting off the ends and carefully pulling it away. Next, I just followed the video. I pushed all the tabs on the Bellow in to the holes on the tub and then screwed the parts back in reverse order. Good Luck Al

Loud noise when in spin cycle

I was sick when I heard the noise from our washer. I looked online at new ones and found out it was going to cost between $1000 to $1500 to replace it. While looking online I found the PartSelect site. Unbelievable! I put in the model #, read the posts, ordered the parts and within a few days they were in. Using the video and the posted instructions I took it apart and replaced the bearings and seals. The whole thing took about 3 hours and we were back to washing clothes. Total repair costs were about $160 to $180. Compared to the price of a new washer, you guys saved the day.

Inner door liner had a hole in the bottom causing water to leak out the door

  • Customer: Susan from Wilsonville OR
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

We read the instructions on the website which were very useful. We have a Maytag front loader. The instructions and pictures which came with the part are written to look like the hardware in the door and the door latch spring etc. is attached to the outer door. I realize this part fits multiple brands but instructions could clearly state that you have to remove all of the hardware from the inner door liner that you are replacing and reassemble it to the new inner door liner. It is really important to take pictures of how the door latch and spring are attached as this took the most time putting back on the new door liner. Our washer is older and did not have a vent tube and now has one. In the end, everything was correctly reassembled and we no longer have a leaky door. Shipping was very prompt and we're pleased with the part and repair.

Door would not lock, no door locked light, would not start wash cycle

Removed front panel and door, lifted top cover to access door lock. To remove the wax motor, you need to remove the Door Lock/Spin enable switch. Important note, there are two switches so to completely rebuild the door lock, you need get two of the Door Lock/Spin Enable switches. Same part/part number, one is for the door lock and the other for the Spin enable.

The instructions from Richard of Austin, MN were instrumental in repairing my clothes washer. I am an electronics technician, and my control board failed just like Richard indicated. One thing Richard did not state is that resistor R11 and Q6 did not fail until the wax motor (solenoid) shorted out. If I had used the old wax motor, it would have caused the new parts I installed on the board to fail. I did find the wax motor cheaper on other companies web sites but without the instructions Richard provided, I would have had to spend nearly $300 on a new control board instead of repairing the original board. The two limit switches on the machine can be checked using an ohm-meter, so they only need to be replaced if they do not close when engaged which can be done manually. I found the resistor and Triac at Radio Shack online. I repaired the machine for about $40 total. Michael from Austin, TX

Washer would not run, seemed like the wax motor was the most common cause.

Watched the video, worked just like shown so as quick as you can take out 8 screws you can make the repair. Turned out it was the MCB but maybe this part (wax motor) Will save a main control board failure.

I went on your web site and printed the instructions given by the first entry after the product description. I had called my friend who is also a handy man and he did the repair very quickly [I helped very little]. The directions were very complete and very simple to follow. MAH5522BW

The video was great. The only problem was getting the spring back on. It was way too stiff, so I put it in a vise and stretched it a bit. It's a bit fussy but your site made it go pretty easy. thanks

It was after reading the other comments that I understood there could be a problem with the installation of the hinge pins. Just looking at the hinges and pins, it went well. I installed the long pin in the long hinge first with the lid in place, and then pushed the short pin through the short hinge into the frame.
