Maytag does not sell this bearing separate. It comes as a part of the rear outer tub and price for this part went up to $535 + shipping for an over sized item. It makes such repair worthless.

On the other side, if you are handy enough, you can replace just the bearing. You can find some useful information in one of our previous threads: Replacing Neptune bearings

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for MAYTAG MAH4000AWW Washer - Horizontal Axis | AppliancePartsPros.com

What exactly is the wax motor? and should I plan on replacing it while I am doing the bearing job.

The wax motor is a part of the door latch and it has nothing to do with the bearing problem unless there is more problems with your washer.

I replaced my bearings after a lot of intensive web investigation. There is one important item that nobody talks about, that is, properly seating the drum. So I put up a web page on it at

neptune bearings

hope this helps somebody because if those bearings are not seated water gets in and all is in vain.
