Maytag Neptune repair - door latch wax motor

Maytag Neptune Repair

I just finished a new video that shows how to replace the door latch wax motor in the maytag neptune door latch. Here is the Neptune Wax Motor Video link.

If you have a Maytag Neptune front loader with a timer knob you will want to inspect your wax motor and make sure it has a black actuator pin. If it has the brownish color actuator pin then you will want to replace it as soon as possible.

Keep in mind that if you have a MAH3000 model with the serial number starting with a 10 thru 25 then you will have two more wax motors in the soap dispenser. These control the bleach and softener flows.

See Neptune help for more valuable Neptune front loader information.

Kenmore Elite's have bearing issues too?

Kenmore Elite - Do these front loaders have bearing issues too?

I have been offering Maytag Neptune owner's the bearing and seal kits for about 2 years now at Neptune Bearing.

Recently, I had emails from 2 Elite owners that needed bearings. One was for an HE3 machine that was 3 years old and the second was an HE2 model. Does anyone build a washing machine that will last? I have an Elite HE3 and it is still working... (Knock on wood)

Well, don't fret Elite owners... I just put up a website where you can purchase replacement bearings and seal. See Elite Bearing for details.

You can also replace the outer tub as these are not too expensive yet because they are still in production. But once they are out of production the price will go up considerably just like the Maytag Neptune outer tub has.

Until next time...

Maytag Neptune Bearing - Spacer Update

Maytag Neptune Bearing Update:

Due to your requests... I've decided to include the replacement Neptune bearing spacer with all Tony Tool rentals. I realize that when you have your Neptune torn apart while performing the bearing change you don't want to wait until the new spacer arrives via Priority Mail... Now, starting today, October 10th, 2009, I will include the bearing spacer at no charge.

If you discover your original spacer is cracked or too corroded just use the included one. If you don't need to use it simply send it back with the tool rental.

Below is a picture of the new spacer (left) and the original spacer (right). As you can see, the replacement spacer is much thicker than the original one.

To order your Tony Tool rental, point your browser to Maytag Neptune Bearing.

Until next time...
