Thanks Home Smithy. My husband said the same thing about the larger tiles. He will be happy to know another has his same opinion. I will follow his, (yours), advice. I just noticed you are a appliance repair person as well. I have a Maytag front loader 3000 series that is making a loud noise when it spins. Someone said it is the main bearing and not to bother and fix it because it is a flaw in the design. What is your opinion on this?

Lynn, these can be repaired. Im not sure if the neptune bearing kit will fit but you can ask them. I believe it will. There is also the "tony tool" that you can rent to do the bearing work. You have to make a deposit but that is refunded as soon as the tool is returned in good condition.

I dont think the waiting list is very long now eitherr. A couple days maybe.

There are complete instructions on the web site and of course if you get stuck Im always here to help.

The repair usually runs about 8-900 bucks. With the kit and you doing it yourself it runs under $200.00.

Please click here to go to the website.

Other than the bearing this is a great unit. Once a good beraring and seal are installed they last quite a while.


Please let me know if you have any other immediate concerns.
