Default Replacing boot on Neptune Washer
Model Number: MAH5500Bww   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi,

The boot on our washer has a lot of mold. After reading this forum, I learned that we have to replace the boot. To replace the boot, we ordered the boot last week and now, I would like to request some (a lot of) help on how to install it. Part no: Part number: AP4010226

Part number: AP4010226
.

The instruction sheet that came with the boot is quite honestly pathetic and highly unprofessional of Appliance Pro to sell such a part without the proper instructions.

Some posts here point to a pdf link for the appropriate service manual. Can someone help me step by step (I am a total novice in the repair of washers) to remove the old boot and replace it with the new one?

Thanks.

DOOR BOOT
The door boot rubber gasket provides a seal between the outer tub assembly and the front shroud. The boot seal is secured to the front shroud by locking tabs on the boot seal, which engage with slots in the shroud. Attachment to the outer tub is by a wire loop stretched around the perimeter of the opening in the outer tub cover and secured with a spring.

REMOVAL

1. Disconnect power to the unit.
2. Remove the front panel, top cover and front shroud.
3. Using one of the two hold down brackets or one of the two front support springs, grasp the hook of the boot clamp spring. With the other hand, press the wire loop into the door boot. This will brake the wire into the door boot and not allow the wire to slip.

NOTE: Be careful not to bend or crease the wire loop. If the wire loop becomes bent, the result will be a potential leak upon replacement of the boot seal onto the outer tub cover.

4. Pull the boot clamp spring hook toward the wire loop and disengage the spring from the wire loop.
5. Carefully remove the wire loop from the lip of the outer tub cover.

NOTE: Note the orientation ribs on the outer tub cover and the locating notches in the door
boot seal lip.

6. Unsnap the locking tabs of the door boot around the inside perimeter of the door
shroud.

REPLACEMENT

1. Align the door boot with the D-shape toward the front, with the flat of the D toward
the bottom. Also, locate the large tab toward the top center of the shroud.
2. Stretch the rear lip of the door boot onto the tub cover.
3. Move the rear door boot lip along the face of the tub cover until the locator notches in the door boot align with the locator ribs in the tub cover. Check alignment of the six rib marks and reposition if necessary. This is necessary in order to have the locking tabs on the inside perimeter of the door boot align with the corresponding tabs on the front shroud.
4. Carefully loop the wire loop with spring around the lip of the outer tub cover and place the spring at the 11:00 o'clock position, just left of the top rib of the outer tub cover. Hook the end of the spring over the nearest tub cover clip to hold the spring and wire in position for final hookup to the other end of the wire loop.
5. Using either the hold down bracket or the outer tub spring, grasp the hook end of the spring and apply pressure on the clamp wire into the door boot.
6. Pull the spring hook toward the wire loop to engage the spring with the wire loop.

NOTE: Be careful not to bend or crease the wire loop. If the wire loop becomes bent, the result will be a potential leak upon replacement of the boot seal onto the outer tub cover.
