My mistake, I didn't realize that there were supplements to the manual and just went to page 157 which was the last page of a supplement.

I got our Neptune repaired for almost free January of 2004. It wouldn't spin cycle and a search of the internet turned up the free fix for mold if it had not been done at the factory. It took a month for Maytag to send the kit to the local repair facility. The repairman told me that the kits were at one time stocked by the repair centers but that Maytag had then stopped that policy. I was charged $18.95 for the wax motor as it was not in the mold kit. I also paid for a new bezel for the soap loading door as one of the ears was broken: the new one was obviously molded differently to avoid the stress riser that has caused the original to failure.

Anyway, I have a washer that sounds like a jet about to take off during the spin cycle. What is the bearing size and what is the probability that the aluminum part holding the outer race of the bearing is also damaged? I'm trying not to take the washer apart until my wife gets that "last" load of wash done. Then I'd like to have the parts ready and just fix it.

The only way I have repaired the neptunes with bad tub bearings is to install the outer tub assembly.

Outer tub assy kit, Includes ball bearing, rear bearing, water deflector, hose clamp, spacer, motor isolator, plug & Lip Seal

Your looking around $200 for that part.
If you scroll down the site here and look on the left hand side you will see a box that you can enter your neptune model number in.

This will give you all the parts diagrams and prices.

The bearing is factory installed and not sold as a Maytag part.

Thanks for the advice. The parts are on order. Viva la $click. The hassle of sizing, ordering and r/r bearings that weren't meant to be field serviceable did not appeal to me.

That's great!
If you get the chance to it would be great if you could snap some photos to post of it taken apart.
I don't have any photos to show of one with the tub being replace.

Thanks,

don't waste your time and money like I did on the repair kit.
Replace the control board with a new one the first time around and be done with it.

Outer tub part # 22004465

At the time of this post....

RepairClinic.com $645.35

AppliancePartsPros.com $536.74

Sears $456.63

I don't often even look at sears for a number of reasons.

1. They are often higher priced.
2. RepairClinic and AppliancePartsPros have much better Affiliate programs.

In this case sears is the cheapest I found so I posted it for you.

AJ,

The R-11 on my board is not burnt but the washer doesn't spin.  If I replace the wax motor, will this take care of the problem or are there additonal parts I need? Suggestions?

nmtxmom,

Does the door lock light come on?
Does the washer sound like it's trying to spin at all?

Did you remove the back panel to see if the belt or pulley fell off?
