Hi. This happenes to me all the time. From what I understand, it's caused by a small part that gets too much pressure on it and breaks when people overload the washer. The part needs to be replaced. If you call Maytag they can probably tell you exactly what it's called, but as for installing it, I don't know how. But for the future, what we think of as a full load is actually overloading the washer. Try not to go more than about half full and then always set the water level on high. This puts less stress on the part. But this is not a big deal. I'm 99.99999% sure this is your problem and if you buy the part, you might be able to sweet talk them into telling you how to install it. You'll save yourself about $100 bucks. Good luck!

My washer wont rinse. It seems to have a hard time spinning, any suggestions?


do you hear the motor running ,it will drain but no spin,this has no belt in it it's built just like a whirlpool washer because whirlpool owns maytag now and this washer has a motor coupling,i would check this first,do you know if the agitator is working or do you hear a grinding noise when it's running?watch this video and you don't have to disconnect the wire harness to the motor if you don't want to,i don't just put motor off to right side still connected

if it doesn't spin or agitate but you can hear the motor running check the motor coupling,common problem with whirlpool washers

Washer will not spin. Does fill and agitate.


Any error code associated with fail to Spin?

Is this a FAV6800A LED console model or a FAV9800A LCD console model?

Like one of these?

Old maytag A208 will not spin


I would say, there is something holding the inner drum from rotating. Possibly an item of clothing that has slipped between the drums.. When washing only the agitator(pulsator) moves, when spinning, the complete drum rotates as well. Remove obstruction.

Old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.


If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

Maytag washer issues


Could be just about anything. It's all designed to prevent it from spinning if there is a problem. If the motor is still turning, but never gets up to spin speed, check the out of balance circuit. There are two cabinet strike switches and an inertial unbalance switch. Or check the door latch assembly, it's possible for the door to lock enough to turn the 'door lock' light on, but not move far enough to actuate the 'spin enable' switch. Maytag has upgraded the motor/ motor control board for the older Neptunes. If the motor is not running at all, check that the main control board is sending power to the motor control board. If it is you need the motor/ motor control kit (just one part #) If the main board is not sending power to the motor control board, you need a main control board, but you still need to test the motor control board. Take a test cord and put 120 volts to the motor control board, the motor should start turning at 50 rpm (normal agitate speed) if it doesn't you would need the motor/ motor control kit as well.
