Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Changed to clutch and everything worked fine. Thanks for all who offered advise. Left the front panel off for about 6 loads just to be sure everything was OK. No problem.
Left for vacation, and the kids came home from college. They tried to put the front panel on, and broke the tips off of the two lid latches. Solenoids still operate.
Now, when you start a cycle, the latches click a few times then fail to say "locked". If you cycle power and repeat, I get a FL code.
Magnet for reed switch is in place and attracts the screwdriver OK.
I really do not care if the unit just thinks the lid is latched, (even though with the shortened latch arms it does not), as long as it operates OK.
Got any ideas?
You are going to have to replace that left lid lock, Left Lid Lock. You don’t need to replace the right just unplug. Here is what is happen. The left lid lock and right lid lock “Lid is Locked” signaling are in parallel going back to the control board that is why you need to pull the plug on the right lid lock after replacing the left lid lock. The lid locks are designed to latch into the lid only a small amount with them broken off the mechanism over shoots and a signaling slide switch contact signals the control board the lid is not locked “FL” code.
The left lid lock assembly is the important one with its dual signaling function, Reed relay and lid magnet to signal the lid is closed and the “Lid Is Locked” signaling. If you don’t replace the right lid lock (I would not) tape up the plug and try to secure the wiring harness to prevent the wires from chafing. I think you have the manual and Sears Parts direct info from my previous post but just in case; The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
