Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
"dc" code appears with 11 minutes remaining in cycle
have tried adjusting clothing, resetting circuit breaker, and paid $55 for a service call. next step is a control board..$180 plus labor. any suggestions??
This is my failure resolution with DC/UC error codes a common problem with this model;
I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley hub to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 3.5 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!
I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium and heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.
I found a Service repair manual on this site search for this; FAV6800 Manual

Had the same problem a few months ago. the drain pump was clogged with string and would not run. when this happens the cycle stops at 11 min. check to see if the impeller on the pump moves freely

the pressure switch can't detect a lack of pressure because the suds
(being ornery little clusters of air) sit in the space that should be
occupied by water, or in this case no water. Fooling in effect, the
pressure switch into behaving as if the tub still contains water.
Once enough bubbles pop the pressure switch will do it's thing and
the time display will start where it stopped as does the rest of the
cycle, in this case final spin..
first let's verify that it isn't just a cycle adjustment. About the
only way to do that is to see if it will finish the cycle. Unless you
just use way too much detergent ten minutes should be way more than
enough time for suds to pop or about anything else to correct itself.
So next time it occures just wait and see what happens. Maybe it'll
give us an error code. Let me know.

I no longer post on this site no way to post a Sticky.
If you want to DIY the repair Google this phrase ""Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW""" Read the post Part 1; DC or UC unbalance error codes in Spin Cycle what is causing this issue? Part 2 for the fix action.
Post your issue in the repair forum not in the Sticky. Please include your Model Number i.e. FAV6800A or FAV9800A and I will help you.
