Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
When we start a load of laundry in the washer, the spin setting will start to change itself and not stop. It happens for about 1 minute then will stop and then a minute later continue to change itself. Is there anything that can help or do we need to get a new washer?
HELP I HAVE THE SAME IS ISSUE AS\r\n
My Spin cycles keep cycling through, it seems to wash fine but is always beeping and changing through the spin selection.
Is it the control board, ribon cable, membrane??

I would try verify that the spin cycle membrane key is not stuck/defective signaling the controller 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.
Do you have the troubleshooting guide stored in the control panel? It was shipped with the machine, pull 120VAC washer power plug, remove the top three torx screws at he top back of the control panel and remove the trouble shooting guide. Rassemble and power up your machine. Follow the instructions for Membrane Pad Test. You will enter Service Mode to verify that the key pad function LED can be toggled, just press each key once except the Presoak key as described below. If you don’t have the Troubleshooting guide that came with your FAV6800A I have pasted in the test from the SM;
Enter / Exit Service Mode
To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin
Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps.
Membrane Pad Test
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. Each time either set delay arrow is pressed
the digits toggle between a blank and 8. 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. Following 10 seconds of inactivity at
any point, this test will exit without any display.
Let us know your results.

Ribbon connection from the membrane pad to the control board will fail (designed to) the connection ribbon flops around while the washer runs and eventually breaks the connections in the ribbon. Its made of some weird material but is repairable with some fine wire and sewing stick pin needles ;-) solder a pin to the each end of a small gauge wire and stick it through the material on each side of the break. The break usually happens right where the ribbon connects to the membrane pad. It can be hard see sometimes. $174.00 is the cheapest replacement I could find. I have had mine rigged like this for over a year but more connections keep breaking so I am gonna get a replacement soon ;-(
