Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
UC comes up. The unit doesn't spin out all the way and clothes are soaked. I just bought it used and really hope it wasn't a mistake
On last spin washing machine will not spin all the water out.

This machine suffers from a poor clutch design. The roller clutch bearings get rusted up and start to drag in spin in cycle of the wash cycle causing the tumblers to rotate more then designed at the start of spin cycle. The result is continuous dc/UC errors in spin cycle. You can’t redistribute the load to solve this issue. The good news is this can be solved by the average DIY’er. Mine failed with dc/UC errors at the 3.5yr mark and many owners have had the same failure. It’s a $1000 machine that can have it’s service life extended with a clutch replacement. As with any machine it has had other issues that some folks work thru, some don’t and move on.
Take a look thru this post and see if the SM and Sears Parts direct links will help you. I have some pic’s of the clutch and a step by step process to remove and replace the clutch in the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW machine. I’m an owner like you not a repair person but have helped a number of folks thru this process. If you call in a repair service you will be looking at a $350+ repair. I recommend a $50 clutch in that post I’m pointing you to and you may get away with a roller clutch bearing clean up and re-lube. I feel it’s better to just replace the clutch. Let me know if I can help ya…. Rich
