SOURCE: No hot water for a Maytag topload washer

Turn the water off and disconnect the hot wat hose from the spigot and the machine. There should be a screen filter in one end. Check to see if the screen is clogged. If it is then replace it. If not then replace the water valve

You are going to have to pull the front cover off the machine and do an inspection for that water leak here is some support info.
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point.

5/16 nut driver or 5/16 ¼ socket on an extension to remove front panel see page 41 of the SM

About the “OF” alarm if it’s a valid error code it seems to be undocumented. Let me run this by you. I wonder if it could be something like valid “OP” error code with a bad segment of the second portion of the LED display. If your FAV6800AW would allow you to enter a Spin Only cycle the display would read “10” min for the countdown timer at the start of that cycle. Can you put the washer in a Spin Only cycle and see if the console display indicates “10”? You can then cancel the spin only cycle.
How did you make out with your previous “OD” error?

SOURCE: Leaking water Maytag Washer

If the connecting hoses is not a problem then it is probably be the pump present inside the machine.It helps in moving and draining the water.If it is not working then such problems might arise.It is best that you ask the plumber to replace it instead of you doing it

Washers empties water but wont ring out clothes

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design. Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Maytag neptune toploader won't finish cycle code dc. What does dc mean?

If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.

Washer will not agitate, during this step, clothes just sit in water filled tub. once timer moves past this function, it continues to spin and drain like normal. I just put in a new timer, thought that was...

Hi, anytime the washer doesn't agitate at the time that is ordered to , this will confirm that the clutch assembly has failed. the clutch is part of the drive assembly and it works within the gear box(transmission. you will have to replace this device. there is also a shift aculator that works with the transmission as well. this could be an issue also.

I recommend inspecting the drive Assembly and clutch for broken or stripped components.

Maytag toploader model pav2300WW

Do you hear the motor activate during the expected spin cycle? If yes, then there might be a gearbox or clutch assembly issue. If not, it might be as simple as the safety switch not being engaged as the rest of the cycles might operate properly even if the safety switch is not engaged.

If the washer totally shuts down when the spin cycle begins, look at the safety switch circuit.

Maytag washer sav models

If you have the topload maytag as listed, It is possible for a transmission to have both symptoms, but it doesn't usually happen as you describe. If something came apart inside the clutch causing the shaft to pull up and keep the brake released, but also allowed the clutch to slip, this is possible.

I would suspect a brake or thrust bearing or both before a transmission. If you are able to turn the basket easily by hand, the brake is not applying for some reason. The thrust bearing will wear down so that it doesn't completely release the brake causing a slow spin. I find these two parts to cause more trouble than transmissions, but I do find bad transmissions occasionaly also.  Post back if you want to know how to check them.
