8540347 Seal For Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load Washer

8540347 Seal For Whirlpool Duet Sport Front Load Washer (8400 & 8500 models)




















8540347 – approx. 3 5/8” o.d. X 1 13/16” i.d. X .5” thick

It turns out that the seal is not available so I created a custom double lip seal made that replaces the original 8540347 seal. This way you can save lots of money by replacing your Duet Sport bearings and seal verses purchasing a new rear tub. This 8540347 seal should also fit the Kenmore Elite HE2 front load washers…


Models are:
MHWZ600TB00
MHWZ600TK00
MHWZ600TW00
MWFW8500SR01
MWFW8500SR02
WFW8400TB00
WFW8400TB01
WFW8400TE00
WFW8400TW00
WFW8400TW01
WFW8400TW02
WFW8500SR01
WFW8500SR02
WFW8500SR0


See Duet Bearing to order these bearing and seal kits. I will also offer the seals separate in case you prefer to source your own bearings locally and will provide bulk seal purchases for appliance repair centers, laundromats, etc. Send me an email if you would like bulk 8540091 or 8540347 seals in packs of (10) or more.


In addition, I've offered Maytag Neptune bearing and seal kits over three years now and have saved Neptune owners a bundle because that service is usually quoted at about $900! If you know someone who owns a Maytag Neptune front loader send them to Neptune Bearing for replacement bearings and seals.

Neptune Bearings - airplane or jet sound while spinning

Neptune Bearings - airplane or jet sound while spinning

Ok, you thought you bought a Maytag Neptune front load washer... but now it has morphed into an airplane!

Below is a nice video to show you what to listen for so you can repair your Neptune and get another 5 - 10 years out of it.




See www.neptunebearing.com for the replacement bearings and you can rent a special tool kit that will save you time and effort plus comes with a instructional DVD for the home owner!

If you bother ol' Lonely be prepared to receive a $900 quote to replace the large outer tub plus labor, etc. Why replace the $500 outer tub when you can replace the bearings?

If you catch the bearing failure early then you don't have to replace spinner support but just in case, you can order the Spinner Support. Keep in mind that the spinner support comes with a seal kit so you can return the 12002022 seal kit for a $40 refund which almost cuts the spinner support cost in half when you purchase kit at Neptune Bearing!

One last thing... Other front loaders have the same morphing issue, too! If you're the proud owner of a:




Note: The tool kit rental is not used on the Duets, Elites and Epic front load washers. There is a link to a video that shows you how to change the Duet, Elite and Epic bearings which is actually easier than the Neptune's due to the way the Neptune is designed.

8540091 - New seal on left, Old worn seal on right

It turns out that the seal is not presently available so I had a custom double lip seal made that replaces the original 8540091 seal. This way you can save lots of money by replacing your Duet Sport bearings and seal verses purchasing a new outer rear tub.

I also have a new 8540347 seal for the 8400 and 8500 Duet Sports as well.

Other good news is that the support bracket is replaceable on the Duet Sport washers without purchasing the stainless steel basket! That's great news! You can call 1-800-369-0999 to order any appliance parts other than the special bearing and seal kits I have put together for you to save money.

Cat gets caught barking by a human and resumes meowing


Ok.. You've gotta be "kitten" me! I have to admit I’ve never seen or heard a cat bark before until this video clip but I have heard a Maytag Neptune front loader bark when its bearings are going south.

See Neptune Bearing before you have a "cat"astrophe and the laundry is piling up! You can even rent a special tool kit to help keep your fur from getting roughed up.

By replacing your Neptune bearings and seal you will have your Neptune purring like a kitten again!

Maytag Neptune Use and Care Manual

Maytag Neptune Use and Care Manual


Hi Neptuner!

A common question that I receive is where can you Neptuners can get a copy of their Neptune front loaders Use and Care guide? Below is a link you can use to download your Use and Care guide for your machine...

www.maytag.com/manuals

I hope this helps!

If you need information on your Maytag Neptune see Neptune Help and if your Neptune sounds like a 747 taking off when entering spin cycle then see Neptune Bearing and get that machine cleared for landing quick! Don't forget that you can rent the Neptune bearing tool kit and save time and effort when changing your bearings.

Maytag Neptune Bearing Tool rental Update

Maytag Neptune Bearing Tool rental Update

Hi Neptuner,

I just started offering an additional $20 refund if you can get the Neptune bearing tool kit back to me within 8 days from when I ship it. This is due to an increase in tool kit rental orders. Note: This offer is for complete tool kit rentals only not tool only rentals in case you purchased your Neptune bearing and 12002022 seal kit and then decided that you would like to give the tool kit a try. This offer will be until a limited time only! See Neptune Bearing to order your Neptune bearings and seal kit and/or rent the tool kit.


Whirlpool Duet Sport seals are in…

I have a batch of Whirlpool Duet Sport seals in and they can be purchased at http://www.duetbearing.com/ along with the bearings, too. The Original Duet Sport seals have FSP, ATP-1-17 and 8540091 on them. The Duet Sport bearing and seal kits are closer to the bottom of the order form.


Put your webinar on 'Autopilot'…

I understand that quite a few of you Neptuner’s have businesses and I found this new webinar software where you can make a movie and put up a “live” webinar. One issue I have is my day job and I could be missing out on potential sales during the day. With this powerful software you can schedule 3 or more webinars a day and on weekends, too. There is a video that shows the benefits this software provides you. I will post again in the future with more ideas to utilize this software. See http://www.webinartogo.com/ for more information on this time limited offer.

Google Guitar - Play the Google Guitar again

Did you not get enough of the Google Guitar logo on June 9, 2011?

Now you can play the logo just as you did on the Google.com homepage; U.S. users can record and share their masterpieces, too.

Here is the link Google Guitar

The Guitar doodle was in honor of musician and electric guitar pioneer Les Paul's birthday.

I found it difficult to play using the mouse so instead you can play it using keys!

See some sample songs using the Google Guitar logo Sample songs

Have fun!


If you own a Maytag Neptune front load washer and you don't like the sounds it is making while in the high speed spin cycle then see Neptune Bearing

You can replace your Neptune bearings and seal instead of replacing the $450 outer tub! There is also a tool kit you can rent that includes a step by step DVD to save you both time and effort.

In addition, if you have a Neptune with a timer knob (non digital) did you know that these machines shipped with a faulty door latch wax motor? The models are MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A and the 2000 stacker Neptune's.

You can inspect your door latch in about 5 minutes to see if you have the faulty wax motor. If you have the original design with the brownish color actuator pin you need to replace it asap! The new design has a black color actuator tip. Here is a video that shows how to inspect the stand alone Neptune HERE

If you replace your faulty wax motor proactively you will prevent the the machine control board Q6 triac and R11 resistor failure. See Neptune Help to order a wax motor.

Wax Motor Actuator 12002535 Order now for same business day shipping!

If you own a Maytag Neptune front load washer with a timer knob (non digital) then you need to be aware of the faulty door latch wax motor issue...

Here is a video that shows how to inspect your door latch on the stand alone Neptunes... Note: The Stackers are not difficult to check either.




If you discover that you have the brownish color actuator tip then you can order a new wax motor at Neptune Help. Keep in mind both wax motor designs has the brownish color body, just the actuator tips are different. You want the black actuator tip.

If you don't replace your brown tipped wax motor it will eventually short out which will damage your machine control board. The Q6 triac and R11 will fail and the door will not lock which prevents the spin cycle from happening. You can prevent this failure by replacing your original wax motor.

Here is a Neptune model list where the 12002535 wax motors reside:

MAH3000
MAH4000
MAH5500A (not 5500B'S)
2000 Stackers

appliance parts - Find what you need and save money

Whether you have a Maytag Neptune front loader, GE refridgerator or dishwasher... You can order any part by calling 1-800-369-0999

All you need is the model and serial numbers and a description of what need replaced to find the appliance part you need.


I recently worked on an GE Advantium 120 microwave convection oven for a friend. The symptoms were that there was no heat in both microwave and convection modes. Everything else seemed to work. My friend replaced the relay board thinking that was causing the problem. After taking the unit apart it turned out that the 2 relays that control the magnatron and the heaters were not energizing. I took a chance and ordered the WB27X10858 logic board and it is now working.


Here is a link to the service manual PDF GE Advantium 120 service manual


Here is a list of all of the GE Advantium models that use the WB27X10858 logic board appliance part:

PSB1000NBB01

You can order the WB27X10858 logic board part by calling 1-800-369-0999


When working on appliances make sure that you practice safety and unplug machine when opening the case and use care when probing with a voltmeter since you have to have it powered up when testing for voltages.

MAH3000 Maytag Neptune pump question

MAH3000 Maytag Neptune pump question.

Hi. I have a Maytag Neptune washer that seems to go through the whole cycle just fine, except for the fact that the water doesn't drain out. It happened to me awhile ago and someone told me I was using too much soap. I cut down on soap and everything did work great for several months, but now it is worse than ever.

Already Tried: running the rinse cycle again, which worked in the past, but not anymore

Answer:

You have a problem with the pump, either something has gotten into it and is blocking the water flow or the pump itself is bad or the water discharge path is clogged.

See Neptune disassembly photos or videos at Neptune Help. The pump is powered from a set of timer contacts and if you rotate the timer knob you should find spots where there should be 120 VAC on the pump electrical terminals.

If the machine is full of water and you have a floor drain nearby you can lay down the drain hose and gravity will allow the water to drain from machine (unless the water path is clogged with lint or debris).

Once the water is out you can remove the pump and take the cover off of it to inspect it for any lint and debris that could keep the impeller from spinning or the motor could be bad.

To order a new pump simply enter your model number into the Appliance Parts Search box on this blog or at Neptune Help. This tool will give you exploded views and prices of all the parts in your machine and you can simply order new parts and repair your Neptune yourself and save lots of cash.

Don't forget... The MAH3000's as well as any Maytag Neptune front loader with a timer knob has the faulty door latch wax motor. If your MAH3000 serial number starts with 10 - 25 you have 2 more wax motors in the soap dispenser that should be replaced as well before they fail.

The faulty wax motors have the brownish color actuator tip.

The residential models are MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A and the 2000 stackers. The digital machines do not have the wax motor issue.

You can order new wax motors from Neptune help.

Below is the new style with the black actuator tip.










Another item I can help you with is your Neptune bearings. If you notice your machine transforming into a jet engine when it starts to ramp up then it is time for new bearings and seal. If you bother the repairman they will kindly ask you for $900 which includes replacing your large outer tub. Don't do it! You can replace your bearings yourself for a lot less.


You can also rent a special tool kit that includes a step by step DVD that shows you how to do it.


See Neptune bearing for more information.

Maytag Neptune Bearing 12002022 Revised Seal Install How-To

Maytag Neptune Bearing 12002022 Revised Seal Install How-To for solid door Neptune front loaders


Hi Neptuner!

I have to say that I am impressed… I asked a Neptuner to shoot his Neptune… oops, I meant shoot some video when replacing the revised lip seal on a Maytag Neptune front load washer and Jeff C. stepped up and sealed the deal!

Here is the video I put together from Jeff’s footage he shot after replacing his (MAH5500B series) Neptune bearings and 12002022 seal kit. It shows the revised lip seal installation. Jeff also purchased a new Neptune Spinner Support for his machine. If you purchase a Neptune bearing and seal kit from me and buy the new spinner support I will refund $40 when you send the 12002022 seal kit back. The new spinner support comes with a revised seal kit. This will offset your spinner support payment by $40!

If you’re not aware… The Neptune 12002022 seal kit includes 2 seals so it will work on both spinner support designs. The thinner seal is the earlier seal and should be used if your machine had the white plastic spacer ("a" clip) between the front bearing and seal. That video is here. The thicker seal is the revised lip seal.

Note: When installing the revised lip seal make sure that the ribs are towards the front bearing and the smooth section will be towards the stainless steel tub so it is not in backwards.




See Neptune Bearing for more information. I also offer the 12002533 door boot, 12002535 wax motor and the 12001788 belt at a discount when you rent the Neptune bearing tool kit.

Maytag Neptune Bearing Seal Kit Install How-To

Hi Neptuner!

Here is a video I created when I was replacing Loretta's MAH4000 Maytag Neptune bearings and 12002022 seal kit. It shows the earlier lip seal installation. The 12002022 seal kit includes 2 seals so it will work on both spinner support setups. The thinner seal is the earlier seal and should be used if your machine had the white plastic spacer ("a" clip) between the front bearing and seal.

MAH6700 Bearing and Seal Kit - Maytag Neptune

MAH6700 Bearing and Seal Kit - Maytag Neptune


Hi Neptuner!

Ok... I may be ahead of the curve here but I just added the MAH6700 bearing and seal kit to my Neptune Bearing order form. It will just be a matter of time before this model needs bearings and the seal replaced so you can save a ton of money by doing it yourself.

So when your Neptune MAH6700 sounds like a jet plane taking off when it enters spin cycle you should replace the bearings and seal as soon as you can so you don't cause excessive damage to the spinner support shaft.

Until next time...

5 fridays 5 saturdays and 5 sundays in one month

5 fridays 5 saturdays and 5 sundays in one month


Hi Neptuner,

This is an off topic post today...

I received an email saying that the month of July 2011 has '5 fridays 5 saturdays and 5 sundays' in it and that this only occurs every 823 years?

Let's break down the calendar shall we...

Let’s think about this, a year can only start on one of seven days, so there are seven possible basic calendar years. Add leap years, and there are fourteen basic calendars. Period. And one of those calendars only gets used every 823 years? How would that be possible? It’s not of course, all fourteen calendars get cycled through regularly, in fact 2010 used the exact same calendar as 1999.

So there you have it... Yes, there will be 5 fridays 5 saturdays and 5 sundays in July 2011...

If you have a Maytag Neptune front load washer you can keep it working through all 14 possible calendars with Neptune Help and Neptune Bearing.

Whether it is the pesky defective door latch wax motor or the bearings... we can help you save money and get that pile of laundry washed.

Maytag Neptune Front Loader Repair Tip

Maytag Neptune Front Loader Repair Tip:


Hi Neptuner!

I was looking through some photos of you repairing your Neptunes and I noticed that some of you were not wearing safety glasses!

Listen up, did you know that you can buy cool safety glasses for less than $10? They have come along way from the 'goggles'... Check out the "Safety Glasses" link below now and order you some cool safety glasses to have around the house so you don't have an excuse not to wear them.

Whether you are replacing your Neptune Bearings or the faulty door latch wax motor you need to wear cool safety glasses! I also highly recommend that you wear them when soldering on your control board as well...


Safety Glasses



Be safe... Remember you need your vision and you need to protect it!

Carbon-monoxide Poisoning Can Be Prevented...

Carbon-monoxide Poisoning Can Be Prevented...

I just heard on the news recently that another local family was poisoned by carbon-monoxide due to a faulty furnace and the outcome was tragic for one of the victims... This is terrible news!

Listen up... If you don't have a carbon-monoxide (CO) detector in your residence and you have appliances that burn fuel you need to invest in one now! CO is an orderless and tasteless gas so you cannot sense its presence.

Here are some home appliances that can burn fuel:

  • Gas Furnace
  • Gas Water Heater
  • Gas Range/Stove
  • Fireplace (gas log)
  • Portable Camping Lantern / Stove
  • Kerosene Heaters
  • Gas Generator
If you have all electric appliances but have an attached garage then I would still recommend a carbon-monoxide detector in case a car is left running in the garage. If you receive a monthly bill from the gas company then you have gas appliances!

Kidde, who manufacturers smoke detectors and carbon-monoxide detectors have combined the two into one exciting package, the KN-COSM-XTR-B Intelligent Alarm, Combination Carbon Monoxide, Fire and Smoke. This unit even has voice so it tells you “Fire! Fire!” or “Warning Carbon Monoxide.”!

Click on the picture below for more details and you can also check out the reviews. (4.5 stars)
