Question about Dishwashers
Thanks for the troubleshooting re the above post. Have finally got round to swapping controllers and still have the same problem.
1.How do you check motor to see if its working properly?
2.How do you take motor assembley/heat unit etc apart? The area where the rotor fits into is worn. Would this possibly cause the problem?
Appreciate your help.
Sorry for the delay!! If the area where the rotor fits is worn then this will definatley stop the water draining out. You will need to replace the stator assy and the rotor (if the faces are damaged).
HIS IS NOT AN EASY OPERATION..... The stator comes complete with the 2 o'rings. You will need to removed the wiring cover under the drawer, then remove the drain hose & fill hose from the dispenser, disconnect the wiring to the lower part of the controller. Squeeze the retaining clips at the rear of the drawer (underneath) you will then be able to remove the drawer completely from the cabinet. Flip the drawer over and carefully remove the wiring to the motor.lift up the retaining clip formthe locking ring, and turn the ring anti clockwise.The motor and heater plate will now be free to come away from the tub. I always lubricate the o'ring with washng up liquid which will allow the locking ring to slide easier. Good luck thisis not for the faint hearted!! Good Luck and let me know how you get on

Tips for a great answer:
Motor for the most part is bullet proof has a 10 yr warranty
I would start with front panel removal and see if you can rotate the Clutch Pulley CW the Wash/agitate direction and CCW the Spin direction. Make sure nothing is seized.
It could be an issue with the Control Board or the Motor Controller. I have working spares for all and that makes troubleshooting easier.
If you decide to troubleshoot further and try a Control Board swap (in the console) or a Motor Controller swap I would buy parts from a supplier that will allow you to return the part for refund with no questions asked.
Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" a forum where I help owners of the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines.
This is a sticky on a DIY forum at the 5th post down you can link to the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual. You can post in that forum in the Maytag washer forum for additional help. You will find a link to parts supplier.
I link you to a post on this forum where I was working with an owner who was troubleshooting issues and started throwing a LR error code. He ended up replacing both the Motor Control Board, my 1st suggestion and that did not resolve the issue. A Control Board swap in the Console resolved the issue. Maytag Neptune Top Load FAV6800AWW -- tub/motor will not spin ... I won't troubleshoot any further on this forum it's just difficult for me. Can't edit, search post and sometimes pics don't attach. There are better DIY forums out there for working on the FAV6800A/FAV9800A......just mu opinion.
Your machine more than likely is ready for an Tub Seal replacement.....Google this FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement Another forum I help owners with FAV6800A/FAV9800A machine issues........good luck.
