    I have the same problem.

    My washer( maytag performa) is only 1.5-2 years old.

    I noticed the clothes were not as dry as they should be one day, and the next day they were wetter so I investigated and found that the tub was not spinning.

    My agitator agitates but does not spin.

We have owned a MAV4755AWW washer for about 2.5 years. A local appliance company that has been around for a long time gave this model to us as a replacement for the last Maytag washer we bought from them that only lasted about 1 year before having serious problems. Anyway, our washer agitates but the drum won't spin. I spent several hours on Sunday. Removed the drum to verify that there wasn't any obstructions between it and the plastic tub. Replaced drive belt as it was slightly worn. However, I noticed the motor pulley was loose. I applied tention to the motor and belt and tried to tighten the locking nuts. They tighten but would not hold the motor in place (hold belt in position with the proper tension). Took the front cover off and I'm convinced the spin problem is the enclosed brake assembly located under the drum. The repair person above most likely was correct and was honest - it would cost too much with parts and labor to fix it. The repairman had to replace the brakes or brake assembly on the last Maytag we had for 1 year and he was at our house for awhile doing it. I have had it with Maytag washers. Our first one lasted over 10 years so I thought I could rely on buying Maytag again. They have lost my business. They are no longer quality washers. I will now buy another quality name brand. Also, I'm so mad about losing $500 that I will say the local store is in Marysville, CA. Only one well known store if you are from this area so buyer beware.

Sounds like you have a timer problem. Insided these timers are small switchs called contacts. These can sometimes get burnt, and wont function properly, especially if one cycle is constantly used for laundry (not your fault, just wear and tear is all). These are somewhat easy to fix, most just have one plug to plug and unplug, and removal of the rear of the dash is all. The timer knob cover just pops off (cap in the middle) then drop timer out. Problem is these timers are not to cheap in price. The timer number for this unit (I believe) is 21001701, and runs about $100. Please, check E-Bay for these parts, they usually are way cheaper and even though they may be used, they still carry the same warranty normally as the new ones, for half the price. Good luck, and let me know if you need further help.

Maytag Neptune TL starts, fills with water a few sec then clicks loudly a few times and then stops, a few sec later it repeats this, then stops for good. Tried unplugging and restarting, but same thing...


Any error codes?
Do you want to troubleshoot? If so here is the Service Manual.
FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

I would start by removing the front cover of the machine follow all safety warnings in the Service Manual.

Follow the first few steps in my Clutch Fix post to remove the front cover.

Then let me know if during the water fill cycle the machine rotates the wash basket CCW in a slow spin during the water fill cycle before the machine stops and we will go from there. Give me all the detail you see with the front cover off I need to know if the wash basket is rotating CCW during the washer fill cycle.

You can lift the washer top up a slight amount to observe the slow CCW spin of the wash basket. I’m checking that the outer tub bearings are not seized……Rich
To pump out the excess tub water with this process;

Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”



Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key.



This process is documented in the Service Manual. I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub.

I have a Maytag Neptune FAV6800AWQ Serial Number


Fireman,

Excellent info wish all post would start off like this. The first two digits of the s/n are your series number a Series 16 machine I’m an owner no expert and will try to help.

I assume you have the Service Manual but just in case.

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.


“”I can grab the drive belt and effortlessly move it back and forth-pulley spins and motor spins--Should it move like this?””

There should be slight resistance.

With the front cover off and be careful of the rotating drive belt can you start a Spin Only cycle?

Do you see the Motor rotate the Clutch Pulley assembly CCW? If so the wash basket should spin CCW just raise the washer top and verify the CCW/Spin rotation.

If that works again with the front cover off start a Quick Wash cycle min Soil/Spin settings and observe as the washer. As it fills the wash basket will be rotating CCW don’t raise the washer top to high or you will spray water around.

After the water fill the washer will start to Wash/Agitate. The Motor will rotate the Clutch Pulley CW and the Tumblers will rotate. Do you see this action.

You can go into Service Mode with this procedure and dump the wash water if the cycle fails with this procedure.

I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub.

Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key.

Thank you again for the Model number and Serial number…. other readers this is how you post an issue.

Waiting for your feedback………Rich

Wash will not drain


Hi, When the cycle goes into drain, do you hear the motor humming at all? If the motor does not hum, check the lid switch.
If the washer agitates, there must be a problem with lid switch ot timer. The lid switch is most common.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Washer stops during rinse cycle and isn't easily restartable....


Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer. Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.
