Your pump, or the hose between the pump and drum, might be clogged.  Could be spare change from unemptied pockets.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Series MAH5500BW loud noise during spin cycle.

very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW Will not spin

maytag neptune washers do have a motor problem and they have a kit to replace the motor and motor controller.
when the motor fails, it wont wash or spin. most units have a 5 year parts warranty and should be replaced with a free part, but you will have to pay an authorized servicer to do this.
if it is over 5 years then i would call maytag and see if they will help you with an authorization for repair.
most of the time they will provide the part for free. just call the 800 # and ask for help. they wont send you the part but might give you some help with the parts.

SOURCE: maytag neptune fav6800aww wont spin on rinse cycle

With this post I’m attempting to enhance the troubleshooting process regarding dc/UC errors in Spin Cycle associated with the FAV6800A machine. The troubleshooting steps are more to help DIY owners but it could be good info. for other owners to pass along to their appliance repair service if you go forward with a repair. I’m a DIY’er who refused to junk my machine as long as parts cost did not trigger a replacement decision and I have some basic mechanical skills. What I have learned about these fail codes, dc/UC in Spin Cycle is…. this is a chronic failure condition associated with the FAV6800A series machine (no brainer per numerous posts in this forum) and I feel that most of the time these codes are associated with a clutch malfunction.
The troubleshooting guide packed in the console of your machine makes reference to this issue in the Will Not Spin section of the guide and states to replace the clutch. I re-lubed my clutch with WD-40 and I have been working with 30+ loads of varying size with no Spin Cycle errors since early December 08. I and two other DIY forum members found this issue to be a maintenance issue with the clutch, no out of pocket cost for me and I’m sure under $5 for the other two forum members, I had a can of WD-40 in the house. See the links I have attached within this post. There is a description of the clutch removal I did in those posts. I hope this works for others; I’m sure many of these machines head to the curb for bulk trash pickup. Maybe you can extend the service life of your $1K machine if this proves to be a clutch re-lube fix for this issue. Shame on Maytag for not placing a quality sealed bearing in the clutch…. my opinion.
1. 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. Raise the top of the machine to observe the wash basket and tumbler action described in step 2...

2. With the top raised start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket, observe the wash basket it will begin to rotate CCW. Watch the tumblers, they should not rotate in spin cycle (maybe ½ turn at the start of spin cycle and that’s all). If the tumblers rotate while the wash basket is rotating you have a clutch malfunction and the Spin Cycle will fail with dc/UC errors. If this is not the situation move on to step 3. I need to post step 3 and the rest of this post in a comment.

My neptune washer is stuck in pause mode I can't set it any any wash mode to wash a load the start/pause light just keeps blinking. Is there any way to reset it or boot it to get it started again thanks...


Karen,

Power it down by pulling the 120VAC power cord to the washer then plug back in and see if it will progress with the wash cycle. Which machine do you own the FAV6800A LED console display or the FAB9800A LCD console.

If still no good I will have you try to get into Service Mode but let’s see if a power cycle will clear the issue…….Rich


You will need the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Installing new washer and plug is stuck inside washer.


On this unit you will need to removed the shipping bolts before the plug will release. It is so important that these bolts be removed that the manufacture designed the plug to be stuck inside until all 4 bolts are properly removed.

The installation guide will have instruction on how to properly remove or post a comment to this if you have questions and I will do my best to address them.

Is it a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW machine? Sounds like it is. I believe you have a Control Board issue; the Control Board has a 5yr warranty. Do you want to DIY a fix or call in a Appliance Repair Tech? Have you reset the 120VAC power on the machine? If not give the Control Board a hard reset by pulling the washer power plug for 10 seconds or so and then re-power up the machine.
I’ll attach the Service Manual link located on this site for reference. See if you can get into Service Mode, try this.
To enter Service Mode, this from the SM.
Enter / Exit Service Mode
To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys simultaneously for three seconds or until the control beeps. The Console display will show “00”.

Access Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key. The console display will show “ot”

The lid lock will lock and the Quick Wash LED will be lit. Will the machine allow you into Service Mode? If not then it’s time to replace the Control Board. Press the Off button to back out of Service Mode.

Let me know what direction you want to go. Rich
