Hello gwatson01,
Wondering if you could rate my clarification request as a solution? I joined this forum as a owner DIY’er to help other owners. The machine is just too expensive to junk and as you found fairly easy to work on. As a forum member as you I receive no compensation for my support to other owners. Thank you in advance for your support. Rich
My solution;
I’m an owner/DIY’er of the machine. Please take a look at this post and see if your mechanical noise may be coming from underneath the tumblers, maybe some coins grinding around under the tumblers. If you think it is take a look at the service manual link in that post. It will take you thru the tumbler removal process, see if you feel comfortable with the process, the manual does not call out a #20 Torx driver is required to remove the tumbler.
If you think the grinding noise is very metallic and not muffled by a tub of water the grinding noise may be coming from the transmission/clutch area and removing the machine front vertical cover will be necessary to better sound isolate the suspect area of the machine. Do you feel OK to remove the front panel? If so see this post.
The 1st link I sent you to shows that this owner had issues after the coin removal. I would also like you try a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Can you let me know if that cycle runs with no noise? We can’t totally rule out an issue with the clutch/transmission components with the info supplied so far. To help you remotely diagnose this issue detail information is needed. Let’s try to sound isolate the grinding noise source location. Follow all safety rules in the Service Manual. If you don’t feel comfortable to proceed I would recommend you call in a qualified FAV6800AWW repair service for support.

Sounds like the clutch spring is broken. You should have a UC or DC error code showing on the display. Only fix is to replace the clutch assembly.

See this Clutch repair post if you want to DIY. Is your Wash tub banging around in Spin Cycle? Do you error out of Spin Cycle with dC or uC error code to the LED Console display? You can check out the TDS but I would go right to the Clutch repair post if the machine shuts down in with a error code dC or uC.

That means the TDS is producing analog voltage swings +3.5VDC to 0VDC to the input of the Control Board Conn_P3 pins 10 and 11. Those DC voltage swings are at the design limit of Wash Tub movement and the Control Board shuts the Spin Cycle down……..so TDS is working as designed.

The machine will make several attempts to redistribute the load before the error code generation failing with dC or uC error codes. Please let us know what error coded you display.

I or other knowledge owners/DIY’ers or repair folks can help you. Please other forum members chime in for support.

Don’t get hung up in Front Strut issues or other WAG’s. Fix the Clutch Malfunction and your FAV6800A will be happy.

Will not start wash cycle


Sound like the lid switch has went out , you should hear it click when the lid is close to an inch of being closed , they are un-expensive and easy to replace and they go out often from use. Easy to find online with your real model number located under the lid.

The washer with the grind noise is a main bearing going out and may be covered under warr. through maytag.

Your first question I need a little more information. What kind of noise is it? Is it a squeek, or a roar, or like rocks in the tub? The second answer is more than likely a timer problem. This part (Maytag # 22004189) costs around $60 to $75 depending on where you live. Run that part number through eBay for special deals sometimes for those parts. Be sure you find out what that noise is first. If you have a transmission or bearing going bad, that could be a costly repair. Let me know what that noise sounds like, and we'll go from there. Jim
