Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
My machine stopped at 11 minutes. It would not spin, or cycle thru the rest of the wash cycle. I lifted the top to see if the tub or agitators were spinning ccw or cw. There was no spinning of either part at all.
I replaced the clutch assy and it ran fine thru two wash cycles. It then once again stopped at 11 min and had a dc code. Now it is spinning slowly, the tub wabbles erratically (none of the tub hardware was touched during the clutch install.) and there is now water leaking from the bottom of the tub somewhere..
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

Google ""Maytag Neptune load unbalance""
Read thru the post. I feel you have a Clutch malfunction even though you may not be see DC ot UC unbalance errors to the Console.
I'm seeing that around the 5 to 6 yr mark it's time for a Tub Seal replacement and possible Outer Tub and Spinner Support bearings should be replaced on the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines. It's not too bad for most DIY owners.
