Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
I purchased the unit in 06/2006 at Sears I have called the Svc Dept but I cannot get a straigth answer, I am getting an error message of Lr when its about to start the draining cycle, according to Maytag's site this is a "Locked rotor" how is this fixed, I am unemployed and don't want to spend loads of money fixing it, can anyone help?
Good for you…. On your decision to repair or at least make a solid decision to repair or junk. Also hit may tag for replacement cost if you decide to junk the unit. 1st level svr rep offered 15% on an their line, ask to speak to a supervisor and demand better, they offered me 25%. I decided to repair if you have been following my postings. To get you going you need the SM, I got this link form the applianceblog link listed below.
See this link from a FAV6800A owner like us from another self help site, this person had this error code you can follow his action steps to repair.
I believe the motor is warranted for 5 yrs. So you may be able to get Maytag to step up to the plate for some of the cost if it's a failed motor. So call the Maytag Customer Assistance number at the back of the manual if it’s a motor issue. This link will take you to the Maytag doc location where you can get further inf. Just put in your model#
Good luck to you on your decision to repair and job search.
