How did this happen? Any sever wash tub swings in Spin Cycle?
I don't use this forum for deeper DIY support it's too difficult to find my older post for reference and no editing features.
Google this ""FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement"" I support a lot of owners like you and myself at that site. Fixya is OK if you can get help for this TL.
Good Luck dh1200s

Yes it could be, you could try to reseat the ribbon cable on the Control Board. I have three Control Boards two of which are mounted on Consoles and all work in my test FAV6800A. The machine is hobby and I help owners that wish to DIY the repair on the machine to save big $$$.
If you do decide to DIY this issue and do not have access to a loan'er Control Board I would look at a supplier that will offer a return policy if the Control Board is not the issue. You will pay top dollar for that service.
All my spare electronic parts come from E-*** from other owners parting out the machine. You can make this machine last forever if you buy cheap used parts.
Only thing I would buy new is the Outer Tub Bearings and Spinner Support bearings and a new Clutch Pulley if a Leaky Tub seal takes out the One-Way Roller clutch bearings.
See these post for my credentials as FAV6800A owner that knows the machine from Control Board to Outer Tub rebuild.
