Maytag Washer seal question
« on: August 16, 2010, 01:11:58 PM »

Just replaced the bearings on my Neptune...  Have a couple questions about the seals.  The kit came with 2 different style seals.  I put one back on similar to the one I removed (called the "old style" in the instruction sheet).  Fit perfectly and all.  However, the kit also came with an O-ring.  I installed it per the instructions.  However, my washer did not originally have an O-ring on it.  Any issues going to come from this???

Model MAH4000AWW

under the UPC symbol has the following set of numbers:

and says kit seal

on the side running vertically says
Code

Part # 12002022 Lip Seal Kit, AP4009088

I don't think you will have any issues from installing that o-ring.
