Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
The repair man just left w/out wanting to fix it. I advised him of the warranty and even had to copy it for him. He told me probably clutch replacement and that includes outer basket/ Is this 1 piece? I am waiting for a call back about what is covered, he made sure to advise me that parts would take a rreeeeeeeeeeally long time. I want to be well informed when they call bame back. Of course he pointed out the rust on the clutch I was wondering if should try to wd-40 it first? There is a non visible leak that "caused " the rust.
If you are handy you can drop the clutch out and inspect, if the spring is not broken and the bearings clean up like mine did you may get back in service with little cost just some cost saving DIY time. A couple other Forum members were luck like me and a clean and re-lube with WD-40 did the trick, no hard failure of the clutch. As I mentioned back in mid Dec 08 I may need to re-lube down the road with some bearing grease. I’m over 40 loads since my fix in Dec. Grab the manual if you haven’t all ready form this site “Tips and Tricks” and see if you feel OK to dive in. Can save yourself some $ for labor. See this link for couple other forum members that had success. Worse case you order the clutch and replace.
Read through this post of inf. At the end I placed a couple of links of other forum members who save big $.

I no longer post on this site no way to post a Sticky.
If you want to DIY the repair Google this phrase ""Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW""" Read the post Part 1; DC or UC unbalance error codes in Spin Cycle what is causing this issue? Part 2 for the fix action.
Post your issue in the repair forum not in the Sticky. Please include your Model Number i.e. FAV6800A or FAV9800A and I will help you.
