Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
I need to get the water to drain from my Maytag FAV6800AWW washing machine.
Please also include the proper way to get access to the parts I need to fix. There appears to be one large piece that covers the back and the sides of the washer. There is no visible way to take either this or the front of the machine off to get access to the parts I may need to fix.
Your drain pump is 120VAC operated turned on by the control board.
Go to page 16 of the SM and you can turn on the drain pump in Service Mode with the presoak key. Press it again to turn off the drain pump or hit the off button.
Link to some documemtation that may help you thru yout issue. The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
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. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point. Remove the front panel see page 41. You will need a 5/16 nut driver or 5/16 ¼ socket on an extension to remove front panel.
I’m a owner DYI’er like you. What type of issue are you experiencing? Let me know if I can help.

Only the front cover needs to come off.

The typical machine uses a belt-driven pump to remove water from the tub.
Usually, the sides, top and front are preassembled and the rear panel attached with a few screws.
The access to the innards has been from the rear on any top-loading machine I've ever seen.
The pump may be OK but the belt may be trashed; you should see the remains of it once the back panel is removed. The pumps are generally a rounded device with hoses connected to it and its replacement difficulty varies with machine brand.
Looking for parts is much easier if you locate your machine on a parts supply webpage that has 'exploded' line illustrations of the machine accompanied by the part numbers and often costs too. Sears.com has an extensive library of these drawings and they can be ordered on line.
