Neptune Bearing Repair - Pic Tutorial
« on: November 07, 2009, 03:59:16 PM »
Just completed my neptune bearing repair. The job was made easier by info found here & other forums. Thought I'd give back by posting a picture tutorial of my experience & maybe someone facing the same repair will find this helpful. There are 13 pics with comments, maytag manual, maytag technical bulletin & 1 text file. Highlights include home made, cheap bearing seating tool, close-up pics & severely corroded aluminum housing that was salvaged using JB Weld.

The maytag manual & tech bulletin were found elsewhere on the web but I can't remember where to give credit-not my work for sure.

The repair was actually quite easy & soooo nice having a non-leaking, whisper quiet machine again!!

Uh ohh, can't post my tutorial - too big - zip file is 18,000 kb. If anyone or a mod would like it send me a pm or email. Also have it in rar format.

Here's two pics of my homemade bearing tool.

This is a Great Turorial....  Thank You.

A few questions: 
1. Do you have the part number for the Seal Kit you used.
2. I figure the Bearings do not come in a Kit..  What bearings did you use and where did you get them.

Thank You Very Much.
