Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Machine is stopping with an error code UC. Can you help me with this. I dont know what the problem is.
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 a 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 unballance 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.

Yes i can help you ...thats means continous unbalanced load either your loads are too heavy, mixed with very heavy and very light items(impossible for machine to balance) or the tub displacement sensor (the sensor this machine uses to tell if its unbalanced. Test the machine empty if it still shows UC and stops around the 8 min final spin cycle its probably that sensor. I had one do the same thing and it was the sensor. There is a test for the sensor however it is pretty compicated. I could probably step you through in a live chat session. Dont forget to rate my solution as solved if i answered your question accurately.....Thanks!!
