Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
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. ""

you need to replace the motor and the motor control board,it comes in a kit,call your parts store give them the model number and the first two on the serial.common problem with the neptune,the wire harness that plugs into the motor is strait down,moisture runs down the harness and gets into the connectors,it's around 200 bucks for the kit
