Softner cup is not draining completely on Maytag Neptune TL

I think there might be build-up. Is there a way to 'flush out' this drain?
Thanks,

Dot,
If your machine is a FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW See if this post will help you. Once the Fabric Softener top is removed you can flush the dispenser and run some pipe cleaners thru the exit ports to help remove some gunk. If there is a water flow issue into the Fabric Softener dispenser then further investigation may need to take place. I discuss how I would start the troubleshooting for that as a possible issue.

I have a Maytag Neptune TL Washer that won't drain. I think the drain pump is clogged. How do I remove/disassemble the cabinet so I can get to the drain pump?


See this link for the Service Manual and a pic of Drain Pump/Drain Line on the right side of the machine. leaking at bottom of washer after it spins out not alot of water but a pain in the ****, how do you

You can place the machine in Service Mode once you have the Service Manual and turn on the drain pump thru console commands.

As I mention in the other post here on FIXYA you can only access the drain pump with the front cover removed.

If you place the machine in a Spin Only cycle will it complete the cycle?

If you can give a bit more detail on your troubleshooting maybe I can help.

My washing machine sounds like it still has water in it when i spin it and it smells musty


Hi

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My maytag neptune tl leaks from the bottom while it washes MODEL #FAV6800AWW it leak about two to three cups of water for each load,about one drop per second.


Possible Tub Seal leak, leak from Outer Tub, Sump Cap, Drain Pump, Drain Line.

You need to pull the front cover off the machine and ID the leak source. If there wash water over the Clutch Pulley I would suspect a Tub Seal issue.

You can't link to the Service Manual form this site.

Google Maytag Neptune load unbalance and see if you can find support for the Service Manual.

Maytag neptune tl fav6800aww wont dispense fabric softner


Test mode? Do you mean Service Mode and you turn on the solenoid for the water valve to divert water to the Fabric dispenser reservoir and it is flushed in Service Mode?

See if this solution will help with your trouble shooting.

Not draining completely


Clutch Fix
Hello surfsmitty68 ,

A couple of questions;

Is the machine failing to spin with error codes such as dc or UC? If not are there any error codes to the LED console display on spin cycle failure? If there is a blockage in the drain pump/drain line you would fail with a ND error code.

Do you want to DIY the repair once we get going or do you want to call in a repair service? See this post Clutch Fix to see what is involved to re-lube/replace the clutch in the FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW TL. If you or someone has basic mech. skill sets you can do this it’s just a tight work area. But let’s get some feedback from you before we commit to a clutch issue.

Here are some handy links; The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.


Post back if you have questions or concerns I’m a owner like you. Let me know what I can do to help…. Rich… aka dh1200s.

Fabric Softner won't dispense


fabric softener goes into the dispenser. it may be a full blown solenoid valve -or- a flapper type of solenoid valve. operation of the solenoid operates a flapper to let the softener out. go to an appliance repair site to find the solenoid - appliance parts dot com or repair clinic dot com.
