There is a semi clear part deep inside the machine bottom. If you shine a bright flashlight through it towards yourself, you may find you'll be able to see a coin stuck in the drain line. I had to catch all the water I could with a shallow pan when I took it apart then used the wet/dry vac to clean up the rest. It was not easy to get my children's (and probably my) loose change back, nor was it monetarily rewarding but it did save having to call a repair man.

    I had a quarter make it all the way past the part that is suppose to catch it and find the impeller blade of the pump. Eventually it ground down the blades and stopped draining. The thing that led it to me was listening and I could hear a small "tink" some times when it started and stopped trying to draing.

Check the pump, pressure switch and related hose for small obsctructions. For reasons unknown they moved the pressure switch location to above the pump. Maytag Neptune TL FAV6800AWW Overflows - d60f89f.jpg

Once washer hits spin cycle (12 min. left) it throws a DC code. Checked the TDS sensor - OK, motor control - OK, spinning the tub by hand in CCW feels smooth. Haven't taken apart to clean and lube...

I start load of wash, with setting of Max Extract being ON. Clothes come out very wet


I would put the machine in Service Mode with that Wet Wash Load in the wash basket and do a Quick Spin Test on page 14 of the Service Manual and record the fastest RPM that the wash basket will pin up too.

If you don't have the Service Manual Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW
