unfortunately, the bearing is part of the tub and cannot be serviced separately. unit must be entirely disassembled to repair. because of cost customers rarely repair. sorry

Here are your parts
Parts for Maytag MAH7500AWW Washer - AppliancePartsPros.com

Go to section 08 and then click on the outer drum (item 1) and read the Q&A.

Here is also some additional info.
http://forum.appliancepartspros...t=bearing+replace+maytag

Note that I am not 100% sure of this but you may want to do some additional investigation.

have worked on maytag 32 years. trust me. you have to replace outer tub.

I guess to be a senior expert you have to own part of the business.

Scott both you and Denman are correct. Yea Maytag/Whirpool say's replace the entire tub, always have and I'm sure they always will. Trust me, I worked for them for many yrs. also, started on their Tech Line when it was MAYCOR and ended up as a District Service Manager. Then came a thing called Whrilpool. I lived through the Neptune fiasco. Prior to that I had my own Service Company and grew up in the Appliance Service business in my fathers company. I'm no youngster either.

Maytag never gave out the bearing part numbers or put them on their parts page, and I'm sure they never will. But there is a part # for them, and has been for yrs. Personally I wouldn't take on the job of doing the bearings separately, especially for a older Neptune with their track record. Obviously it's a complete teardown and removing them and reinstalling the bearings correctly requires great care.

I don't want to get in the middle of two differing opinions, but I'd thought I'd shed some light on this.

yes it can be done. I have done -----one------, because I will never do another. I did that one for inlaws. by the time you do the tear down, beat the bearing out, replace and replace the seals and reassemble, believe me, you will never want to see another one. I am with adam, not worth the hassle, so I always discourage it by saying you have to replace the rear tub.

Just Google "tony tool neptune"

Also search on You Tube for "neptune bearing"

Then you can decide if it is worth the hassle.

I found another site to help people on appliance repair. they don't even sell parts. I started thinking, "why am I helping these guys sell parts?"

just trying to help. but no good deed goes unpunished. adios!
