Still going strong
« on: March 27, 2014, 01:17:17 PM »
Some of you recall that I resurrected a non-operating Maytag Neptune 4000 some while beack. I had Herman rebuild the Control Board. I replaced the wax motor.

It has been operational 2 years now. It sits in my unheated garage here in Dixieland (near Birmingham, AL) and is used routinely. I feed it with a garden hose. This last winter, it froze a bit. After a thaw, it returned to its regular operating modes after spitting some ice from the drain hose.

Those of you with Neptunes, don;t give up on them. They are a fine washer. The matching dryer has just had the belt replaced and runs fine.

Thanks for your assistance at the beginning. You saved me having to buy a new washer.   :thanks:
I used to repair RADAR then they discontinued vacuum tubes. Pity
