Maytag Washer Bearing Repalcement MLG2000AWW
« on: October 14, 2007, 08:25:49 PM »
I have a maytag neptune stacked w/d (mlg2000aww).  The bearings in the washer are starting to go. Ok, they have been going for a while.  It is almost fun to race over to the washer while it is in the spin cycle to turn it off before lift off!!!  Maybe Maytag should contact NASA.

After reading a number of sites including this one, I am convinced that the way to go is to replace the tub with the bearing vs atemping to drive them out with a hammer and jerry rigging the same.  I realy don't want to worry about cracking the tub or not knowing it and having to do this repair twice after water is all over my floor.

My question is the proper parts to order.  The tub asembly w/seal kit (AP3841622) appears to have similar seals as comes with the spin supp assembly (Ap3448184).  Are all the seals and bearing that are necessary included with the tub?  Or do I need to order the spin supp assembly also?

Also is the lip seal kit (AP3464218) and/or the washer (AP250783) in the tub kit?

Finally,  while I have the outer tub out is there anything else that is suggested as being replaced at the same time?

Thanks.

Hi davidpgh1,

You will need this part.

Depending on how long it has been running with the bad bearings sometimes this part also needs to be replaced.

The lip seal will come with the new tub. I am not really sure what that washer is off hand, but you should get everything that is needed with the tub to replace it.

Between the two parts I listed you should have everything you need to repair the tub bearings.
The only way to tell if you need the second part is to take a look at the shaft on the old one first.

If it has not been making the noise very long you maybe able to clean the shaft up and reuse it.

How old is the washer?

Hi david,

If you're mechanical, you probly won't have any problems. But, for what it's worth, on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the hardest) I would rate this repair as an 8 or 9. Whatever your decission, good luck.

Maybe start a new topic on it?

Thanks,

ok,
the bearings were shot,screeching ,loose drum etc.so i bought the maytag neptune service manual and read the various sections pertaining to my problem.every part place wanted 200-275 for the outer drum assembly,i figured its messed up now nothing to lose.
some how i found the bearings size and numbers that i needed on the internet,pure dumb luck there ,and bought them at napa,they were for a cars front or rear end,dont remember what car,but i do have the part numbers,for the inner and outer.two different sizes.
i got my service manual and started disassembly,the book is very good to have,worth the 30.00 bucks.
got it stripped down to the outer drum assembly,took about 1hr.
removed the old bearing,the old fashion way.hammer and a pipe to tap with.OH,i left the outer tub assembly in the machine case.
cleaned everthing real good and put the new ones in.on the one that went in the tub assembly i used about a 3foot pipe to drive it in ,that so i could get a better swing at it.
got a new lip seal kit,and put it back together.
that was in april and still working fine.
the most expensive part was the seal kit.

manual-30
seal kit 36
bearings10
tot    76bucks
any questions.
now im having timer problems on the washer
