Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My Neptune Washer displays D-C when it is in the spin cycle

It stops when this happens. It goes all the way to the spin cycle..spins a little and then flashes D-C. What does that mean and what can I do to fix this? It just stops at the spin cycle.

If your are failing in that part of the cycle with dc/UC errors and you have no grinding noise or belt screech (possible hard failure of the clutch) then the clutch may just need some maintenance clean up. If you are failing in spin cycle with dc or UC errors or both this is what I believe is happening. I feel the tumblers in your machine are trying to rotate in spin cycle because of a clutch malfunction. If you can do the maintenance I discuss below or have a friend that can help perform this maintenance it may just solve your issue. After I did thiis clutch maintenance I can wash a single pair of socks or a full load of bath towels and the machine works as designed. Prior to that maintenance fix I could only complete a wash cycle if there were no clothes in the wash basket. I will try to help you solve this and hopefully extend the service life of your machine. Look at the Service Manual page 47 and see what is involved in the clutch removal. It's not too bad just a tight work area. If you want to give it a try I can supplement the manual info. You can download the SM from this site. FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual
Good luck, Rich.

My Mainteb fix performed in mid Dec. 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. ""

My machine stopped mid cycle and displays the letters dc, flashing. What is happening? thank you


I believe The dc code is due to an "unbalanced" load situation. Is this happening when it tries to spin? I know some washers have switches that sense this. Is this in the wash or spin cycle?

Maytag Nuptune... when it reaches the spin cycle, it spins, reverses direction spins , then stops. I push the start button and once again it goes through the one spin and reverse and stops again


""when it reaches the spin cycle, it spins, reverses direction spins""

So I understand do you have the washer top raised to view this action? The wash basket rotates one rotation or are you talking about the tumblers?

If you raise the washer lid and rotate the wash basket CCW the Spin direction will it rotate CCW with very little effort?

Any dC or UC error code on fail to Spin?

If you do Spin Only Cycle do you have the same results.

I would enter Service Mode and do the Quick Spin test on page 14 of the Service Manual and see what the results are.

Maytag neptune FAV6800AWW top load washer gets to 32 minutes left and goes no further. It starts to cycle for about 5 seconds and stops for about 35 seconds... over and over and over


Is the machine in Spin Cycle when this is happening? What part of the washer selected cycle does the Cycle Status LED say the machine cycle is in.
If it’s in the Spin Cycle I think you have a clutch issue. Do you take any error codes to the LED console display such as dC or uC?
If you stop the machine in that cycle and do a Spin Only cycle will it complete?
Do you want to DIY the fix? Let me know and I will try to help…..Rich

If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual.
If it one of those machines I suspect a possible clutch malfunction.


See this post for what is involved to do clutch maintenance or replacement.


Do you have any error codes to the display if it's a FAV6800A such as dC or uC unbalance codes. Is the wash tub banging around on Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle? ……Rich

A dc error means that the clothing is not being distributed properly in the basket. This usually happens when the machine is lightly loaded. If the load seems o.k. then the problem is probably with the sensor at the side of the basket.

If the water is draining out o.k. then either there is no signal from the water level pressure switch, no signal from the control board or a problem with the Spin windings.
