Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
This is possibily the worst investment one could make. I should have given my money to the hedge funds guy. I will never by maytag again. I was told that my washer did not drain and was pump related and have sent 150.00 for a pump that continues to break. I was taught by the repair person how to fix this issue and it continues to do the same proplem. My laugndry was smalling for a while and was told that you need to run an empty load of bleach. At what point does this machine save me money?
My two cents: I’m an owner/DIY'er and have not experienced a pump/blockage issue. With the test I speak of the controller board sends 120VAC directly to the pump no other signaling ie. the pressure switch can override the test, you are in Service Mode. If your pump impeller is turning (not jammed) and you have removed the front panel and verified no clogs are restricting input flow to the pump then this test should pump out the tub. I would not suspect a clog on the pump output side but could happen. The noise from my pump running is a little bit louder than a hum. Does the hum you hear from the pump sound familiar as it worked normally in the past? If there is no input blockage to the pump my next step would be to remove the pump, inspect the input to the pump for clog/jam, power up the pump and verify the impeller is turning. If you can’t DIY and you can’t get a local DIY’er to help you then it’s decision time to get a qualified appliance service repair person involved if you are going to keep the machine. Cost would be for the service call and pump. See if they would bring out a pump for the machine on the first service call. They will need your model number and serial number of the machine. Online parts supplier sells the pump for about $40. Maybe other forum members will jump in and offer another resolution path to go down. Good luck to you.
