    I have the same problem as this. Can anyone help me!!?

  • okorchid7 Jan 08, 2009

    Sometimes when I first start cycle and sometimes at the rinse portion of the cycle.

    The LD is long discharge of the water in the tank. I had the same problem and found a quarter blocking the drain hose. To remove, had to pull out the tank and remove the plastic cover over the drain. Now, it appears there is another problem for Sears Service replaced the computer, and has a replacement interface and replacement pump being shipped to my home. The bill so far for parts is $450. This machine is only 10 months old so it's all covered under warantee. In March '08, I had to replace a 4 1/2 year old Frigidaire front loader because it would cost more to replace the computer than to buy a new machine. Where the F%^& are these mechanical machines we had back in the 70's and 80's that would last 20 plus years with minimal failures? Guys, don't listen to the women that get turn on by all of the electronic features.

Sometimes the LD on certain machines can be decieving, It's possible that the error is pointing to a lid lock issue. I'm a sears tech but have logged of my work computer for the night so I can't look it up right now. I just happened to stumble on this forum. In all appliances there is a tech sheet hid somewhere. This will give you more information. On this model, if you press and hold anykey for 3-4 seconds, let it up for 3-4 second and do that 3 times it will show more codes and go into a test cycle. Don't worry you cant screw anything up in the controller. If you or anybody needs help on appliances you can drop me a line. I have been a Sears tech for 15 years and have seen a lot of stuff and learning more all the time. scottowa at hot mail

Don't know if this sight would be helpful or not. I stumbled on it while searching for a solution with my kenmore elite oasis. I don't have the computer problems. My problem is i can hear sloshing when i manually agitate the washer. For some reason some water is being left behind at the end of each laundry job. Not even 2 yrs old yet. (even ran a spin cycle with no water or clothes and had the discharge hose laying on my basement floor, to have gravity take care of it) Still hear the sloshing. Good luck with your problems. Im stumped.

You probably have something in your pump . or a problem with your drain. Ld means the washer took longer then it should to drain.

When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

Just bought this washer,it is level both way.When it comes to spin cycle it stops. water is still left in tub.after a while it starts flashing LD and beeping,So please what is wrong with this machine...

I don't think this is the proper model number, I can't find anything on it. I would imagine the LD means the lid is open -- or at least it thinks it is. You may have a lid switch going bad -- Whirlpools are known for that (Whirlpool made most Kenmores) Try holding the lid down firmly where the switch is during the spin cycle and see if that makes it work. If so, replace the lid switch. Even if that doesn't help, it still could be bad, but that usually helps when they're first starting to go.

The machine will start a cycle normally, but after the timer reaches a certain point it stops counting down and the machine will continue to agitate until you force it to stop.

Thank you for verifying the model type so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A questions in this forum machine specific topic area.

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

You will need the Service Manual for support. I’m an owner like you with a solid repair skills on the machine and will try to help you DIY the repair if we can ID the issue through troubleshooting.

Do you have this condition in all wash cycles? Will a Quick Wash cycle complete? Do you see the Cycle Status LED ever indicate the machine has moved to the Spin Cycle during the wash cycle? This could be a Control Board failure but we need to troubleshoot.

I want to make sure the Wash basket will spin up with a Spin Only cycle selection. Can you select a Spin Only cycle with a empty wash basket. I would release the washer top so you can observe this test. I want to rule out a broken Clutch large wrap spring.

Page 33 of the Service Manual will show you how to release the washer top from the base. In Spin Only cycle raise the top just enough to make sure the wash basket is rotating Counter Clock Wise – CCW with the Spin Only cycle selected and operated.

If the above test doesn’t indicate an issue I would like you to try the Quick Service Cycle test on page 15 of the Service Manual and see if your FAV6800A will pass that test with no clothes in the washer. When you put the machine in Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys until the machine beeps and the LED display reads 00. Then press Wash/Rinse Temp to start Quick Service Cycle test. Did the test complete with a PA indication in the display? It will only display the PA code for a few seconds. End of cycle will beep washer will unlock and Cycle Status LED will indicate complete.

Waiting for your reply….Rich

Maytag neptune washer keeps beeping

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
I have tried to work with a few folks on this issue never received feed back to resolution see this post. I feel the issue is caused by one of three possible issues.

A stuck key issue/defective Spin Cycle key making constant contact forcing the Key/LED to cycle thru the Spin Cycle settings. Under normal conditions if you press and hold the Spin Select key it will cycle thru the settings, yours has a mind of its own (defective issue).

A false signal from the Control Board for the Spin Cycle.

A corrosion path issue at the Membrane Pad ribbon cable socket connection between pins 5 and 4. See page 20 of the SM button functionality “Spin” key.

Try to verify that the spin cycle membrane key is not stuck/defective signaling the Control Board to cycle thru the spin settings. I have not experienced this issue but let’s try the Membrane Pad Test to get a start point. See the Service Manual page 15, I have modified the process to make it a bit more understandable at least for me. Make sure the two digit display is not On or Lite.
Press the off button first so there is nothing displayed in the Two Digit display of your FAV6800AW.

Now Enter / Exit Service Mode

To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps. While in Service Mode, pressing the Presoak key will start a membrane switch check that verifies switch operation.

All the LEDs (except Presoak ) can be toggled or slewed by pressing the key associated with the LED or set of LEDs. Do not press the Presoak again during this test.

Press each key once and only once including the Signal Key the on side and the off side, also the UP and Down Arrow key of the LED display. All keys (including the OFF button) must be pressed within 5 minutes for this test to pass. “PA” will be displayed for five (5) seconds once all keys have been pressed and the test is completed (more like PA will be displayed for only a few seconds on my FAV6800AW). Following 10 seconds of inactivity at any point, this test will exit without any display. Let us know the results.

See my additional comment this board has message limit issues.
