In the past, you had to replace the inner basket and washer tub when the FAV6800 bearings fail or simply scrap the machine. Why scrap the machine when you can economically repair it and get additional years out of it? No special tools are required if you have a large crescent wrench. In most cases the tub seal will start leaking and that ultimately leads to the bearing failure.
Both bearing and seal kits include (2) bearings. Kit 1 includes the special one way bearing that should only let the inner basket rotate CCW by hand. See FAV6800 Bearing for more information.
www.neptunehelp.com has been offering Maytag washer repair parts for over 7 years now starting with the infamous 12002535 door latch wax motor failure on the Maytag Neptune front load washers. The Q6 and R11 repair kit we created allowed homeowners to repair their machine control board by soldering two components onto the machine control board thus saving a ton on repair bills.
After clients Maytag Neptune's started to sound like airplanes we created the Maytag Neptune Bearing and 12002022 Seal Kit. Then Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite front load washer owners came to us and we created kits for their washing machines, too. Next we decided to create a new site called www.washerbearings.com as a starting point for all of the machines.
Keep in mind that if you need any appliance parts (not bearing and seal kits) you can call 1-800-369-0999 and they can get you most parts. Have your model and serial number available when you call. Note: This is a parts ordering line only.
Until next time...
