    Yes it drains, I took off the back of the consol and found a service instruction doc. I tried several times to get into the diagnostic mode with enviro and Spin only, just can't seem to enter that mode. I have tried and tried no luck but I have after several attemps got this machine to go through a wash completely it is very tempermental. I can hear it spin at hight speeds sometimes and it throws out the water when it does spin. If it were to be the clutch would it not ever go into high speed if the clutch was bad? I am not sure what to try next I'll trouble shoot this to death as it is too costly just to replace items that may or may not work and some are so expensive a new machine is in order. I like the machine it hasnt been through a lot it looks great. I believe only about 6 years old. oh I get no codes to tell me what is up. Thank you for the input.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Tl FAV6800A stuck in wash cycle

Hello rockhead255 ,

I'm an owner like you and will try to help.

Error code 10 states Unbalance or cabinet hit detected during final spin, which prevented the spinner from exceeding 500 rpm


Did you notice if you took some large tub swings as the washer tried to spin up?

I suspect a Clutch malfunction. Pump the water out of the tub with the Board Output Test with the drain pump in service mode. With the wash tub empty open the lid and see if you can rotate the wash basket CCW with one finger. You mentioned “”Tub does not turn by hand””. Is that in the CCW direction?


You should be able to rotate the wash basket with your pinky finger with very little force. The wash basket will not rotate CW. What amount of rotational resistance do you detect in the CCW direction? With the error 10 reported I would drop the clutch out of the machine per my step by step procedure at this post. Try the One-Way roller clutch bearing clean up and re-lube as I discuss in that post and see if you can restore the machine to normal Spin operation. Once you drop the clutch out of the machine we will have a better feel for the issue.

You can try the TDS check in the SM but I feel it is a Clutch issue at this point of troubleshooting. Good troubleshooting using the machines diag code listing.

Post back if you havd need additional questions or help.

Common problem with this model I own it. Sounds like the roller clutch bearings in your machine are seized/rusted up. Do you want to try to DIY the repair? Read thru this post for the details of what is involved. Post back with any questions. Rich

Maytag washer is sometimes out of balance and clothes are sopping wet when spin cycle ends. Washer is balanced on the floor.


1ST thing put less clothes in washer each time

second ck to see that drain hose is not obstructed from draining out the chamber , ive seen fabric lint get stuck inside the drain valves and slow and eventually block them off

last thing to look at
temp defeat the lid lock switch and or watch it spin thru window , your looking for the speed it spins at (should be a blur !!) , if its slow and not steady in rate but instead sort of gets slow/fast/slow/fast this could be an indication that your tub drive system isn't working well , this depends on a large bit of things working properly , but could be as simple as a worn out drive belt too.

Maytag neptne fav 6800 aww does not fill wiht hot water. works fi


Hi Big Wags

I would remove both water hoses at the back of the washer and check the Hot & Cold inlet screens for a clog/restriction.

They look like this;

16bd3b6.jpg

You can turn the individual valves on in service mode using the procedure on page 16 of the Service Manual.

To enter Service Mode; press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”.

Now go into board output test by pressing the Delicates key.

Now press the Normal button to open the Hot Water Valve you can press the Normal button again to turn off the valve or just press the Off button to end the process. Or just use the wash cycle to toggle the H/C water valves on. I like folks to become familiar with using Service Mode and the SM.

If the inlet screens are free of debris and you have good water pressure from your source valve then you may have to replace the valve assembly Here is a link to check for FAV6800AW PARTS Sears Parts Direct. Shout back If you have questions. Rich

Maytag PAV2300 AWW nevre agitates and only spins once.


Ive never seen a Maytag washer, but I think know the principle. So! I think the motor turns in one direction to wash & the opposite direction to spin. Now, if the transmission is very stiff in the 'wash mode', that could be why its not washing. The motor could be overheating & the thermal trip in the motor cutting off the electricity supply hence having to wait 45 mins for it to cool.
Not too sure! However I think I am on the right track. Let me know please
