Maytag Neptune TL

Hi,

It seems that I may have the same clutch problem. I am still searching for a repair manual. If it is not to much trouble could you please send me the walk thru you talked about on installing the clutch.

Thanks,

    Won't spin and stops on 11 just like above. We have replaced the main board and no luck. I am betting on the clutch. Any help?

    Please Help Me TOO!!! I have the same Problem!. Have for about a week now. got the maching in 2005. no problems until now, except a clogged filter in the water line. I took the service man. from the back of the washer and looked at it, but it doesnt say a whole lot about the clutch.

    Thanks!

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley hub to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 3.5 yr old $1k machine with out a trying a fix If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!

I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.

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...


This is a Clutch issue.

My neptune tl fav6800aww starts, then I believe at th first spin cycle starts then stops. Then it starts a loop of this process and never continues on. No error codes are displayed. When I open the lid...


Open the washer lid and see if you can rotate the wash basket CCW this is the Spin direction.


The wash basket should not rotate CW. If the the wash basket will not rotate CCW then I feel the One-Way Roller Clutch bearing is seized. If you place the washer cycle in a Spin Only cycle I believe you may see the same fail process with no error code.


If you want to DIY the fix Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW. That will take you to a FAV6800A Sticky.

I feel you will find that the Clutch has failed due to a leaky Tub Seal. A replacement Clutch Pulley will more than likley get you back in service. Once you have the Service Manual you can pull the front cover off drop the Clutch Pulley out and inspect.

I won't offer any more help on this site it is just to difficult to work issues. You can see by past ratings I know the machine and have helped owners. If you are not the DIY type then callin in a Service Repair will cost $65 to $90 range and more than likely they will not have a clue. Go thru the FAV6800A forum here and search the post. i.e. this is typical repair service result for support........ http://www.fixya.com/support/t8683813-6_year_old_maytag_neptune_tl_washer_just

Not hammering service people, most just don't have the hands on knowledge to diagnose machine issues. Once you know the fail point anyone that has very basic mechanical skill sets can repiar the machine. Go to the forum that has the Sticky and open up an issue in the Maytag washer part of that forum and I will help. I scan the forum a few times a day. If you are not into a DIY fix just disregard this post.

Clothes dont spin completely out


See if this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW or this post Maytag Neptune load unbalance

will help you get started on troubleshooting, fault isolation and repair.

I can't find my post on this forum for Clutch issues with the FAV6800A and FAV9800A.

Fixya why don't you provide an easy way ot search or index repair post. I feel this would make this a better DIY forum.

""solutions for every thing"" aren't very handy if you can't find them.

Maytag washer Neptune TL error message: dc stops during spin cycle; leaves water in tub


See my post Clutch Fix but I recommend you go to real DIY forum.

I can't find most of my repair post in this forum. This forum to me is a "Call In a repair tech forum" for this model and that is OK if you can't do basic DIY repairs.

I don't want to put in a direct link to the washer repair forum of my choice so put in your browser this phrase;

Appliance Repair Forums > Appliance Repair Talk > Washers > Maytag/Magic Chef/Admiral/Jenn-Air

This is a true DIY Appliance repair forum.

In the Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down you will find a link to the Service Manual. You absolutely need the Service Manual to DIY issues with the machine. It's not the best SM but will get you started. I also have repair post in that sticky to help with the most common issues with the machine.
If you need help open a post in that repair forum and I will try help you through your issue.

My Maytag will not run a complete cycle. Is there


mgissy


What is your machine model number? Is it a FAV6800A or FAV9800A TL?


If it’s a FAV6800A or FAV9800A TL do you error out in the Spin cycle of the wash cycle with an unbalance error code such as dC or uC? Is the wsh tub banging around during Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle?

If so see this post Clutch Fix. I have a step by step maintenance/repair process for Clutch Pulley assembly issues related to the above error codes.

When My top loader neptune gets to the spin cycle it seems to be out of balance.

I feel you may have a Clutch Malfunction do you take dC or uC unbalance error to the display?

Do you want to DIY the repair or do you want to call in a repair service? See this post Clutch Fix to see what is involved to re-lube/replace the clutch in the FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW TL. If you or someone has basic mech. skill sets you can do this it’s just a tight work area. But let’s get some feedback from you before we commit to a clutch issue.

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?

Not draining completely


Clutch Fix
Hello surfsmitty68 ,

A couple of questions;

Is the machine failing to spin with error codes such as dc or UC? If not are there any error codes to the LED console display on spin cycle failure? If there is a blockage in the drain pump/drain line you would fail with a ND error code.

Do you want to DIY the repair once we get going or do you want to call in a repair service? See this post Clutch Fix to see what is involved to re-lube/replace the clutch in the FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW TL. If you or someone has basic mech. skill sets you can do this it’s just a tight work area. But let’s get some feedback from you before we commit to a clutch issue.
