That was the easiest repair I've ever done. I simply unscrewed 4 screws, removed bezel, replaced with new bezel, and reinserted the 4 screws. Ta DA...all done.

We noticed water below our Maytag Neptune front loading washing machine. I identified the leakage from the water inlet valve. The schematic that you had on your site allowed me to select the correct part. The part arrived very quickly.. 2 business days. 5 minutes to get the old one off and 10 to place the new one on and we were good to go. I figured I saved at least a $350 service call! Thank you!

Attaching the Spring to the metal band around Tube

  • Customer: Alvin from Manalapan NJ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

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.

Plastic worn through from years of jeans and tennis shoes

First thing I did was watch the video the parts company provided. It was concise and kept me from calling the appliance repair man to come right out. It looked easy enough for this 60 plus year old woman to accomplish. The steps they showed were right on. The only part I would emphasize is the rubber grommet can be installed upside down. If it is the air circulator will not fit in. Left me scratching my head for a minute or two. Once that was in the right way it was a done deal. If I had put that in right the first time the replacement would have taken half the time. What a great company!

No cold water coming into the washer

  • Customer: Robert from Bon Aqua TN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

Start by unplugging the washer. Turn off the water both hot and cold.Move washer away from the wall to gain access to the back of washer. Unscrew the water hoses.Use a small bucket to catch the water in the hoses. Use nut driver or socket set to remove the screws around the inlet valve.After the panel is loose you will have to push the panel in then turn to the side to work the panel out. This is the hardest part. When the panel is free remove the hose clamp and hose. unplug the two wires. unscrew the screw that holds the inlet valve in place then push the valve to the side and remove the old valve. To install new valve reverse the steps.

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
