Maytag Neptune TL Stops

My Neptune Maytag TL top loader stops when it goes unto the spin cycle. It clucks and squells and pounds on the outside so hard you can feel it and see it. It displays a code of uC. The local place I bought it tells me to big of load, then to small a load then that I have an unbalanced load

    My Maytag Netpune TL continually stops during the spin cycle. When I call the store where I purchased this washing machine they just want to send out a service person. I want to know why it does it now, when I first got the machine it didn't do it.

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, 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 with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!

I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.

My maytag neptune tl stops after wash cycle it will start for a few secounds then stops and will continue this start stop action till i hit the stop button

The washer is trying to go into spin but failing. The two sprag clutches are probably sticking, This usually indicates a water leak.
The seal should be replaced. The bearing and sprag clutches should also be checked and will probably need to be relubricate or replaced.

Maytag Neptune TL

The TL neptune has a small shock absorber on the middle left hand corner behind the front panel. it uses a small wiring clip that could be loose, with a type of inertia switch.
A common issue I've encountered with this machine is underloading. The snubber and springs allow a fair amount of movement. Don't do a few simple items or mixed load in this machine.
If these don't seem to help, let us know.
