Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Get the bearings here.
You'll also need the seal kit.
These guys have them
I'm not affiliated with either company. If you can find them elsewhere cheaper more power to you.
Maytag told me I had to buy the tub for around $700.
I am halfway through this repair on mine. I haven't ordered the parts yet.
All the parts should cost you around $60-$70 + shipping.
The bearings are very difficult to remove. Some douche online rents a tool for $400 deposit + like $150 rental fee. I pounded mine out with a metal rod. The tool would probably be easier.

It sounds like you may have to replace the Outer Tub to replace the Outer Tub bearing .....ain't that just peachy.....good job Maytag design team.
If you are the original owner I would press Maytag hard to replace the Outer Tub based on the Outer tub Bearing failure. Their warranty states third thru tenth year Drive Motor, Outer Tub and Sealed Transmission. I’m sure you will need to have a certified Maytag repair service tech certify the failure and fix action required. Why should an Outer Tub bearing replacement cost you $430. Another poor design issue of this machine.

There is no other way to replace the bearing,it is pressed into the tub at the factory,the seal you can get
but no one makes a bearing..

Was the Clutch Pulley One-Way Roller clutches bearing rusted up severely or only slightly? I'm trying to get a feel for a Tub Seal leak........Rich
