Video repair instructions on the Parts Select site was right on and made the repair very easy. I took a little longer in my repair as I cleaned each piece I took off to make sure there was no dirt/lint/rust/mold remaining. The only difficult part was putting the spring back in place, this took a couple of tries. Other than that, relatively easy to replace and would recommend that anyone with any handyman skill to do this repair/replacement themselves.

Bearing replacement during lip seal replacement

  • Customer: Bernie from Phoenix, AZ
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Socket set, Wrench (Adjustable), Wrench set

Accessing the bearing housing was quite easy and the PartSelect videos were quite informative. Upon removing the lip seal the bearings obviously needed to be replaced. The bearings needed to be purchased from a local supplier and we used Grainger #6L028 (rear bearing) and #6L029 (front bearing). We needed to apply a generous amount of Liquid Wrench and used a long drive punch pin and a 3-jaw pilot bearing puller to remove the bearings. After removing the rear bearing we broked the puller on the front bearing, but were able to remove with the punch pin with the access created at the rear of the drum. Reinstalling the bearings was text book, we used a long bolt with large washers to pull the front and rear bearings together, with the spacer inserted between them.

What transpired was removing the guts from the old inner door and putting them onto the new door which extended the time. Not sure about the tools because my handyman/friend did the installation while I was gone. He was a little frustrated with it. Otherwise, the door fit well. We decided that using hot water was the problem with the water leaking from the door. Using cold and warm water settings seems to make a difference.

Washer stopped working - ND code

I lifted the lid, removed the front cover and then twisted the pump in its mount. The pump came out of the mount and i put a pan under it. I unscrewed the two clamps then pulled one end out. Water spewed everywhere and it was a bit of a mess. I pulled out the two wiring harnesses and pulled out the pump. It had a key, a quarter and a nickel in it. I had not seen the key in years! I put the ground wire on the new pump and then the main wiring harness. I put on the power wires but later had to take it back off, so do this later. I then attached and tightened the clamps. I put the pump in the mounts and then twisted it into locked position. Then i put on the power line. I put the cover back on and tested it, all good. I saved a lot of money, about $300 between the initial service call and second trip to install it. I like this washer because it gives you problem codes. It is 14 years old, and this is its second breakdown. First time was the PC board under warranty. No problems for 12 years, which was caused by leaving coins and keys in the pockets of my clothes.

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!
