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.

Until next time...
