Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
There is a penny stuck and the washer stops with water in it after it tries to spin. It makes a loud grinding noise and stops.. then we hear the coin drop. I have tried to get it out with a wire coat hanger. I was able to remove a quarter and dime..no penny. It is still stuck. I have tree kids and my laundry is mounding. Help!! Does anyone know how to get those white drum spinning things off?
The Service manual has the procedure starting on page 37 for the tumbler removal, take a look and see if you feel comfortable to give it a try. If you are handy or someone you know has basic mech. skill sets you can perform. You, I and many others need to check those pockets. Here is the service manual link.
The manual doesn’t call out the torx driver size required for tumbler removal. I just removed my tumbler cap and measured, it’s a #20 torx driver. If you call a repair service in make sure you have your Model# and Serial# number ready to pass along to them. You mentioned”” There is a penny stuck and the washer stops with water in it after it tries to spin.”” The tumblers do not rotate in spin cycle only the wash cycle. If you do a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket do you hear the grinding noise? Good Luck.
