Maytag Neptune TL won't spin or drain

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 $.

We just moved and the house came with a Maytag Neptune TL which won't spin if there are clothes in the cylinder. It will spin empty. Please help! Thanks.

Washer bangs around in spin cycle and throws a DC or UC unballance code with cloths in the wash basket is that correct?

If so it's a Clutch issue.

Yes you need a new control board. The fact that the motor and impeller was damaged and loosened. You should try taking your Washer in for maintenance check or call the repair man.

Not draining completely

Clutch Fix
Hello surfsmitty68 ,

A couple of questions;

Is the machine failing to spin with error codes such as dc or UC? If not are there any error codes to the LED console display on spin cycle failure? If there is a blockage in the drain pump/drain line you would fail with a ND error code.

Do you want to DIY the repair once we get going or do you want to call in a repair service? See this post Clutch Fix to see what is involved to re-lube/replace the clutch in the FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW TL. If you or someone has basic mech. skill sets you can do this it’s just a tight work area. But let’s get some feedback from you before we commit to a clutch issue.

Here are some handy links; The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Post back if you have questions or concerns I’m a owner like you. Let me know what I can do to help…. Rich… aka dh1200s.
