Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Maytag Neptune top load washer,(FAV6800AWW). After the cycle finishes the water continues to run to the point of over flowing and flooding the laundry room! The only way to make it stop is to shut the water off at the wall!

It ispossible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errorsdue to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main programcontroller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting fromthe flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit thewater at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then thevoltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to novoltage from the controller. This meansthe controller is a suspect.

Are you sure the error code is DR? Could it be DC an unbalance error code. Google ""16022808.pdf"" to find. Is the washer banging around in Spin Cycle? If so this is a Clutch Pulley issue.

Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" a forum where I help owners of the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines.

DR is not a listed error code in the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual.

I have a Maytag Neptune washing machine. About 5


The Inlet Water Solenoid valve may be stuck open not seating properly.

The Pressure Switch may not be signaling the Control Board to close the water valve on proper fill level.

But let’s start off with the easy test first. If you pull the 120VAC power cord from the service outlet will water flow stop?

If we need to troubleshoot further are you a DIY’er that’s wants to try to DIY the fix?

If not maybe we can point the Service Company in the right direction to bring out parts on the first service call….. Rich

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.
