    I have had this misterious overflow problem. It was happening for"no" reason with the previous washing machine so because I had another I looked that one p. Now its doing it too. It doesnt do it all the time. I have stood by and watched it and it it wont do it while Im there. I have made the loads smaller and I have decreaed the soap. I am lost now for what to do or why it is happening. Its driving me CRAZY and the flood on the floor is awful. HELP!!!

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

Maytag Neptune TL washer overfilling


yes i would agree the water valve is defective as if unplugged it should close,but also sounds like a pressure sensor or pressure hose problem that is also defective too due to the fact that it should at least start the wash cycle even though the water doesn't stop filling,so also it could be the central control unit,pressure switch or pressure hose

Maytag Neptune TL clutch problems- Class Action Lawsuit??


I sounds like this is a common problem with the Maytag Neptune TL after about 3-5 years. Mine finally went out yesterday after several months of bearings getting louder all of the time. It looks like the bearings and the controller are gone. What happened to washing machines that last 15 - 20 years?

Neptune TL Console Issues


You were apparently sent the wrong part; the serial# is important when ordering these parts. You need to repl the failed part- which I assume is the membrane switch, not the actual machine control. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Hoover washing machine HF7160E


I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, and this at first sounds like motor carbons, the belt needs to be placed on from the bottom motor pulley first the onto the drum pulley last, not easy to describe in words, anyway start with the carbons, then if they ok there is a module (main PCB circuit board) normally on Hoover washes located top of machine inside front right corner in a plastic casing, look for burn marks. work safe with electrics, always unplug first
