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:
- Whirlpool Duet, see www.duetbearing.com
- Whirlpool Duet Sport, see www.duetbearing.com
- Kenmore Elite, See www.elitebearing.com
- Maytag Epic, See www.epicbearing.com
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.
Until next time...
