Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
I've some problems with my Maytag Neptune TL. When I switch it on it does not allow me to select all programs. Econo program works fine although when I select Econo LED next to Econo and another program lights up). When I select Normal, then it beeps twice and with Normal pressed twice it changes spin option but do not switch program to Normal. When I click on Spin it also beeps twice and I need to select Spin twice to advance it. When I select Delicate it starts washing (without even pressing the Start button). I've entered the service mode and run Quick Test cycle. It passed. I've run the buttons test and it also passed (although it had the same behaviour as with regular use, Normal button caused double beeps and changed Spin option and so on). I've check the resistance on the connctors between buttons panel and a control board and they seem to be OK except that there is some conductivity between pins 3 and 4 and I don't know if this is OK. Other than that washer works fine. I'm pretty sure the problem is in the electronics but I don't know if I should start with replacing the button panel or the control board. Any suggestions?
I’m not sure what machine model you have your in the FAV6800AW forum. I got Maytag CSV to send me a Control Board for my FAV6800AW. Had to do some arm twisting it is under warranty for 5 years. If you think your Control Board or console is under warranty give it a try. They wanted a Cert Svr Tech to diag the problem. I told them my neighbor was a Svr Tech (me) he had diag the problem and would install the part. They sent me the Control Board, it might be worth a try. I have a number spare parts not under warranty and ebay is my 1st choice, Second Choice . I use this for parts look up Sears Parts Direct.
What is your model type? It sounds like you have Service Manual for your machine and you are troubleshooting in the right direction. Do you have surge protection on the 120VAC outlet powering your machine. Good Luck Rich.
