    I have a Maytag Neptune Washer FAV6800AWW. It worked fine for 4 years. My wife put in a load and came back in 1 hour and my laundry room was flooded which resulted in over 10000 dollars in damage to my basement ceiling and walls and carpet. . The Tech checked the machine out and advised there was no leaks and could not find anything wrong with it.

    I have the same problem with a Matag Performa. I have done enough research that I feel that a problem with the water level switch is the culprit. I would like information on how to get to the tube and how to check it to see if the tube is the problem or if it is actually the switch.

I had the same problem. The laundry room was flooded. After running the diagnostic check on in the machine it could not find the problem. Although I went to the http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/html/index.html website and went through the troubleshooting table and turned the cold water valve on and off, numerous time. The valve leaked intermittently which is why some people couldn't reporduce the problem. This is a $5 solenoid that was sticking and it caused me to flood my home. I'm not impressed with Maytag's (Whirlpool) engineering. The sould have a safety shutoff valve independent to the water valve that is tripped closed when the level switch is activated. This unit was manufactured in Florence. The damn Italians must have build this cold water valve after a wine break!

I had the same problem. It sounds like the diverter valve is sticking open. Only way to fix it is to replace the valve. $20.00 part caused over $5000.00 worth of damage to my house. If you have hard water you may want to consider replacing this valve every couple years. Waiting until it fails could spell disaster.

The thin hose mentioned above often rubs itself against something and wears thin in one place and no longer holds air or has split at either end where it's pushed over it's plastic connection,, cut ends off for a fresh connection, blow into tube to see it's airtight, if not replace tube , it's cheap as chips.. it's rarely the vacuum pressure switch giving the drama, generally the thin hose conneced to it... p/s pull machine's elect plug out of power outlet first

I made the decision to get rid of this machine and obtained a new one courtesy of The Brick Warehouse. My repairman could not figure out what the problem was as he could not duplicate the problem. His advice was to get rid of it as it could not be trusted.

Posted on Oct 21, 2008

There is a level measuring switch which is essentially a plastic tank that either measures the level of the water (similar to a water level), or it measures air pressure as the water rises in the plastic tank. The plastic tank is external to the tub but is connected to the tub by a rubber hose. This device might be bad. It sends a signal to the electrically operated solenoid switches on the hot and cold water outlets. My guess is that is what is happening as the water level device would turn off both the hot and cold. Since it is only the hot water that is not turning off, it is probably due to an old and corroded or otherwise inoperative solenoid switch.

Same problem here. Best solution is to bring the washer to an open area preferably made of cement, tar, gravel etc. Fill with gasoline. Back up for safety. Toss a few zippos at it and then sit back and enjoy!

My washer starts and after about 5 minutes gives out... i get an nf code... anyone dealt with this


That's a No Fill error code. Is there any water flowing into your machine?

May be a block in the in the Water Inlet Valve. If it was false I feel you would have to break out the mop for flood/over fill condition. Did you try to fill with a mix like Warm/Warm selction?

If you want to troubleshoot further go to a real DIY forum.

At the end of cycle washer will not stop filling and overflows. maytag neptune fav6800aww


There is a diaphram switch located in the machine at the bottom right in the rear. When you remove the front panel it will be all the way back on the right. It senses the water level. It has three levels it detects. I had a problem with mine filling too much. That should take care of your problem.

Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top.  If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling.  If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.
