Maytag Neptune Washer - Bearing Spacer Question

Maytag Neptune Washer - Bearing Spacer Question:

I've been asked a few times lately regarding the installation of the new bearing spacer so I wanted to post the answer here. If you will look at the picture you will notice one end of the spacer is flat and the other end has a slight bevel.
I am not aware of any particular orientation when you install the spacer. Until I know otherwise, just install it either way.
If you have a Maytag Neptune front load washer check out Maytag Neptune Bearing for replacement bearings and the 12002022 seal kit. When you notice your Neptune getting loud in the high speed spin cycle is when it is time to change your bearings. You don't want to wait too long to change them because the bearings will eventually fall apart and that will make it more difficult to get them out of there.
If you are a Neptune Technician and you want to offer your customers an alternative to the $900 bearing quote see Maytag Neptune Bearing Kits to purchase your own Tony Tool plus bulk bearing kits.
One last thing... If your Neptune front loader has the timer dial, you need to see if you have the faulty door latch wax motor. See Maytag Neptune wax motor for a video that explains the issue.
Until next time...

Maytag Neptune Help songs revealed

Hi Neptuners,

I almost forgot to reveal to you who created the Neptune Help Song and the Neptune Bearing song...

I previously mentioned that his name was Mark.

Here is the scoop:

Mark Hockenberry is who created those fantastic jingles for me. You can check out his website at Background Acoustic where he has some free mp3's he created for you to download. If you have a website and would like some custom background music then I highly recommend that you talk to Mark. You could also use Background Acoustic music for a custom picture show video you are putting together for a family reunion, your childs school class photos, etc.

Again, the songs are at the following sites:

Check them out!

Until next time...

Cracked Glass Cooktop Website Updated

Hi Neptuners,

Some of you may be aware that I offer replacement glass cook tops for most ranges and cook tops.

In the past, I required folks to email me via a form that asks for name, phone, model, serial, etc. and I would take the information and look up the glass cook top to see if I could provide a replacement. I would then send an email with the price quote, etc.

I just re worked the site and added a model number entry box at the bottom of the page where you can enter your model number directly and it will take you to another page where all of the parts to your range will be displayed with prices. This way the process is instant plus it takes me out of the loop.

Another important fact is you can look up any appliance parts such as your fridge, range, dish washer, etc. What convenience?

Keep me in mind if you need appliance troubleshooting help...

Until next time...

Maytag Neptune Washer - Bearing Spacer

Maytag Neptune Washer - Bearing Spacer

I just added the replacement Neptune bearing spacer to the order form near the bottom.

Occasionally, the bearing spacer needs replaced when swapping your Neptune tub bearings out.

Over the years, I've seen cracked spacers and badly corroded bearing spacers.

Note: These replacement Maytag Neptune Spacers are much thicker than the original Neptune bearing spacers.

The two photos show the Neptune bearing spacer next to a quarter for size reference.
