Will the Q6 Triad/Triac show signs of damage like the R11 resistor did?

Sometimes. :)


I would say less then half the time I could tell the Q6 was damaged just by looking at it. Most of the time only the resistor was burnt looking.

I just joined because of a bearing problem but thought that I should add my two cents worth.
A couple of years ago our Neptune model MAH4000AWW quit spinning and a quick search of the Web determined that there was a free upgrade because of excessive mold build up that included a new control board and the technician as I recall also replaced the wax motor and only charged for the part. When he took the control board out I verified that it was indeed a fried resistor. I still have the paperwork somewhere if anyone is interested in more details.

Hi cds :)

Yeah, I put a few of them kits in myself. Come with a door boot, control board and the new style wax motor with the black plunger on the end.

I'll dig it up.
By the way any chance of getting the rest of the manual loaded for the 3000/4000? I was only able to download thru section 5. need to look at the bearing section.

The manual is 157 pages. How many pages did you get when you downloaded?

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,
