Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
About 2 hr's with a couple coffee breaks and not reseating the clutch pulley properly on the first couple of tries. I'm sure other forum members did it a bit quicker then me. Here is what I posted....
“”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 in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove the clutch pulley. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley 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 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 4 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found a link on this site, good luck!””

My first suggestion is go to a true DIY forum and submit your question. I moved/post on a couple of real good DIY forums. I look back here once in awhile to help owners that are having issues that I feel they can DIY.
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

1. Did you do the work or a repair service?
2. Did you re-lube the One-Way Roller clutches needle bearing in your new clutch? I recommend clean with WD-40 and re-lube with Slick 50 One-Lube.
3. You may have a Leaky Tub seal and it may be time to do an Outer Tub rebuild.
Google this; ""FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement"" and read the process this is another real good DIY forum.
If you replaced the clutch you are more than qualified to rebuild the Outer Tub. Cost are in the ball park of $60

A no to low cost fix would be to drop out the Clutch Pulley and clean and re-lube One-Way roller clutches. The early series use a upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing ring. I explain in the post how to I.D. you series with the first two digits of your S/N.
If you decide to DIY and need any help post back. Sometimes this site dosen't auto notify me. I may not get notified buyt will check form time to time.
I'm on four other appliance DIY sites Google dh1200s FAV6800AWW and you will find me.
