Maytag Neptune top load Model FAV6800AWW DC code in spin cycle

My wife washed a load of clothes yesterday with no problems. Then she started a second load and the machine started with this DC code in the spin cycle. We rearranged the load several times to no avail. We even tried a load of different clothes and it still does the same thing. I am pretty handy with electronics so I can probably repair or replace whatever needs to be done. I just need to know what might be causing the problem and, if I need to replace a part, where do I get it from? Please don't think I'm blowing my own horn, but I am actually good at repairing things if I can figure them out. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello gregjbar, here is a URL for the SM for th FAV6800 look in the posting for the link to the manual.

http://www.fixya.com/support/t495521-fav6800_manual

Here is my fix, follow the manual to test the OOB sensor, if that is OK then the clutch may be the issue, this is how I resolved my issue dc/UC codes in spin cycle...  

Turning lemons into Lemonade :)

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""
Good luck

Have Neptune FAV6800AWW top load, washes when it gets to the rinse cycle it stops with water in. If we remove the clothes and wait a while we can get it to complete. The code we are getting is DR which...


Are you sure the error code is DR? Could it be DC an unbalance error code. Google ""16022808.pdf"" to find. Is the washer banging around in Spin Cycle? If so this is a Clutch Pulley issue.

Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" a forum where I help owners of the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines.

DR is not a listed error code in the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual.

Maytag neptune top load washer will not spin out with small loads, large loads are fine. I get the DC error at about 10 mins left in spin cycle. No amount of shifting load will solve problem

Hi I have a Maytag model fav6800aww stopped in mid wash cycle,now if you try any cycle it makes a whirling noise for a few seconds then goes to the light flashing pause mode.Thanks.


No erro codes to the console correct?

If so see if the machine will complete a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Set the Spin setting to Spin/Hang dry seting and start the cycle. It should take about 10 min complete. Does the Spin Only cycle complete with no clothes in the wash basket?

Maytag neptune FAV6800AWW top load washer gets to 32 minutes left and goes no further. It starts to cycle for about 5 seconds and stops for about 35 seconds... over and over and over


Is the machine in Spin Cycle when this is happening? What part of the washer selected cycle does the Cycle Status LED say the machine cycle is in.
If it’s in the Spin Cycle I think you have a clutch issue. Do you take any error codes to the LED console display such as dC or uC?
If you stop the machine in that cycle and do a Spin Only cycle will it complete?
Do you want to DIY the fix? Let me know and I will try to help…..Rich

Maytag Neptune topload model fav6800aww. does not spin


Thank you for posting your model number.

Are you taking error codes to the LED display such as dC or uC with fail to complete spin cycle?

Is the wash tub banging the sides of the machine at the start of Spin Cycle?

Will your FAV6800A complete a spin only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket?

If you are going to DIY the repair take a look at this step by step process Clutch Fix Post

Basic mechanical skill set and hand tools are all that is required. I can help you through the process just let me know what direction you want to go.

Links to the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

If you can give me the first two digits of your serial number of your machine it will be 10 through 17?

Excessive wobble


If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
