HiCustomer

Thank you for using Just Answer.

There have been several versions of Neptune washers.

Please post the model number from the washer's cabinet.

Thanks

HiCustomer

Thank you for your patience.

Do you have the rear access panel off?

Have you run into a problem?

I was looking for the step by step in the Repair service manual. They just show access to the boot from the rear acces panel and it didn't appear that there was anything unusual about.

Reply to Bernard S.'s Post: You have to access through the front panel. I have the old one off and can't figure out how to get the boot back onto the drum side. Door side will be no problem.

There is a wire rope and spring that holds the boot onto the drum side.

HiCustomer

Thanks for your patience.

I've checked the Repair Service manual and I can't get a good look at that other side.

I'm sure one of the other experts has done this job a dozen times themselves. So, I'm going to "opt" out of this question.

You don't need to ask this question again!

One of the other experts will read everything we've gone through and jump in with some good information to answer this quickly for you.

I will still receive posts and if the question is not answered I will be sure we get it figured out.

Hi Jeff;

Berney has asked me to step in and see if I cant help you figure this out.

Now I know that I have this information but I will ned a little time to read through the manuals I have and locate it for you. It will probably take me about a half hour.

Your patience is appreciated.

Best; THS

HiCustomer

I'm must appologize as my reading skills seem to be lacking tonight. For some reason in my minds eye I thought you were referring to the boot that goes on the pump. Often these need to be cleaned out.

Here is what I think you are looking for-

2. Remove the front panel, top cover and

front shroud (See Front Panel, Top and

Front Shroud Removal).

3. Using one of the two hold down brackets

(See Figure 5-6) 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.

Figure 7-1

There's a diagram that shows you need to line up the tabes with the holes in the boot.

Let me know if you need any more information.

Here's the rest -

 

6. Unsnap the locking tabs of the door boot

around the inside perimeter of the door

shroud (Figure 7-1).

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.

and we're almost there -

 

7. Reposition the front shroud on the front

of the washer and secure (See Front

Shroud).

8. Pull the front edge of the door boot and

locate the widest locking tabs, located

at the 12, 4 & 8 o'clock positions. Insert

the locking tabs into the large interlocking

slots in the shroud. (Spraying the

surface with window cleaner or a soap

solution aids reinsertion of the tabs into

the plastic front shroud.) Press the thick

rubber section of the door boot into the

groove in the shroud so the locking tabs

engage in the slots.

9. Press the remaining locking tabs into the perimeter of the shroud.

Ok, I think you've got it all now. I included the removal to be sure you had done everything correctly there.

Jeff;

Just a quick note about the manual. It says it is only for the MAH3000 series but that is not true. The 3000 is the same basic model as the 5500 to 7500. The models between the 3500 and 5500 are diffrent though.
