Hello janice_dave
Pull the Maytag Neptune TL FAV6800A/FAV9800A the Service Manual from this site;
FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual
What errors are you taking? I will assume dc/UC in spin cycle. “Spin cycle failing in the last 11 minutes of cycle. This Machine suffers from a chronic failure of the clutch not engaging the spinner shaft causing the tumblers to rotate in spin cycle which will cause dc/UC errors. I call this a soft failure because most times the clutch spring is intact and the clutch roller bearings dry with a hint of rust that can be cleaned up with WD-40. A hard failure would be broken clutch spring, roller bearings rusted beyond reasonable clean up.
Access the to the Clutch
Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. Raise the top of the machine to observe the wash basket and tumbler action described in step 2. (See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point).
Remove the front panel see page 41.
Clutch Removal.
Disconnect 120VAC power cord.
Tools required;
3/8 inch socket and socket wrench to remove clutch pulley bolt. Page 47 of the SM
5/16 nut driver or 5/16 ¼ socket on a extension to remove front panel. Page 41 of the SM.
An optional small bottle jack to help jack up the washer tub just enough for clearance to get the 3/8” socket wrench on the Clutch Pulley Bolt or a helper. It is a very tight wok area but you can do it without removing the tub. (See page 43 using block of wood to raise tub)
Here is the process I posted back on Dec 15, 08
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 hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub 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 hub 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 3.5 yr old $1k machine without trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!
I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium and heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.

I’m now at 40+ loads of all sizes. My wife said we are way beyond that count.
Some folks that have used this process and met with success.

Washing spins but dont take all the water out of the clothes


If like you said its spinning just not drying your clothes, then I would check the transmission plate and clutch. When the transmission leaks oil it goes into the transmissions plate wich has this break pad inside which hooks up to the clutch during the spin cycle in order to make the tub spin. If it is worn out or if it has oil it won't spin fast and will not dry your clothes.
Hope this video helps!

Maytag bravo washer model number MTW6700tQ0 wont finish spinning please help!!


Hello c bellone,
If you rotate the clutch pulley by hand CW the tumblers should rotate in the wash basket.If you rotate the clutch pulley CCW the tumblers will rotate until the clutch spring comes under tension then the wash basket will begin to turn CCW and the tumblers will stop rotating because the transmission rotates with the wash basket. Do you have this action?
The clutch has been an issue for many are you taking dc or UC errors to the display?This clutch incorporates a Drawn Cup Roller clutch bearing (one way clutch bearing) designed to rotate freely CW and lock up CCW to rotate the spinner shaft in spin cycle rotating the wash basket/transmission CCW.You are halfway thru the clutch removal process, I would drop the clutch out and inspect the roller clutches, clean them up with WD-40 and some light bearing grease.If they are rusted up beyond clean up and or the clutch spring is broken as in this post you will have to replace the clutch.You will know what you are up against once the clutch is out and opened up for inspection.
Here is the process I use for clutch removal;
Access and remove the Clutch for maintenance
Disconnect 120VAC power cord.

Washer wont spin out


If your washer is not spinning you need to check this part.
  1. Test the lid switch
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the centrifugal switch
  4. Test the water level switch
  5. Inspect the motor coupler
  6. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  7. Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  8. Test the motor
  9. Inspect the pulley
  10. Test the transmission

Spin cycle on a Whirlpool washing machine does not work


underneath the 2 solenoids that rock when the motor is running are 2 vertical metal actuating arms. With the lid closed and in the spin cycle this arm is moved by the rocking soleniod actuator that is pulled up by the solenoid when the usnit is supposed to spin. This in turn pulls the actuation arm reaward allowing the spin tube to drop the clitch pads onto the drive plate. If the solenoid is bad or the gliding inverted U shaped solenoid actuator center pin has sheared it will not pull the actuation arm to the rear and the unit will not spin because the clutch pads never are moved onto the drive plate.

The washer goes through the whole cycle then for the last 11-12 min it stops and doesn't finish the rinse cycle. it sprays water just like at the begining of the cycle then tries to spin then pauses


With no error code on your FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW I will still give it shot. I believe you are failing in spin cycle. See this Post and the post I link to for a step by step clutch maintenance/repair. If you have more info on the failure or questions post back and we will try to help.

Maytag Neptune Tl washer


Mike, Sorry to hear that, is there any water around the clutch pulley?  With the front panel removed and you put the washer in a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket.  View the Clutch pulley turning CCW and see if is turning true with no wobble? Mine spun off twice before I got it seated properly, and it was in wobble mode until I got it seated properly.   With the water leak issue maybe you can view with the front panel off and a partial fill the leak source. You can always do a quick tub pump out in service mode. As you know unplug the 120VAC to the machine before you poke around in there.  Do you still have the original clutch?  Did you remove the plastic cover and inspect the roller bearings, clutch spring and coupler? Good luck and let’s see what you find. Rich
