Before calling for service:

If clothing is still wet it means no spin. The most common problem with this model is a loose connection from the lid switch to the control board. Two white wires going from the lid switch to the control board should be cleaned. Do not touch the control board - especially in dry climates. Static electricity can ruin a board.

First check if the motor is running on spin cycle. if it is Check adjustment or wear on gearbox plastic pulley. Check motor tension spring is intact. Check motor slides freely. if no problem found the internal clutch is faulty, replace gearbox.

There are a few choices for spin cycle speeds.
Use the fast one.

Don't put anything in there that is waterproof or water resistant.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune washing machine does not spin out

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

I start load of wash, with setting of Max Extract being ON. Clothes come out very wet


I would put the machine in Service Mode with that Wet Wash Load in the wash basket and do a Quick Spin Test on page 14 of the Service Manual and record the fastest RPM that the wash basket will pin up too.

If you don't have the Service Manual Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW

ND error, pump runs, but sounds rough, took pump apart and found nothing in the pump or pipe.


If the motor is running but there is no water coming through, it would suggest the pump impellor blades are compromised. It's quite posible that the shaft that drives the blades has snapped. Is it possible to open the pump housing and rotate the blades manually whilst watching the motor to see if it moves? If one moves without the other, then its a new pump I'm afraid. WARNING! Do NOT attempt to do this with the motor connected to the electricity supply.

It sounds like the Outer Bearings are going due to a leaky Tub Seal. Bothe can be repaired and have done on this site. This site has no way to reference past post to machine issues.

I have helped owners of theFAV6800A and FAV9800A machines here but I prefer a tru DIY site.

I no longer post on this site no way to post a Sticky for machine issues.

If you want to DIY the repair Google this phrase ""Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW""" Read the post Part 1; DC or UC unbalance error codes in Spin Cycle what is causing this issue? Part 2 for the fix action.

Post your issue in the repair forum not in the Sticky. Please include your Model Number i.e. FAV6800A or FAV9800A and I will help you.

Maytag Neptune topload model fav6800aww. does not spin


Thank you for posting your model number.

Are you taking error codes to the LED display such as dC or uC with fail to complete spin cycle?

Is the wash tub banging the sides of the machine at the start of Spin Cycle?

Will your FAV6800A complete a spin only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket?

If you are going to DIY the repair take a look at this step by step process Clutch Fix Post

Basic mechanical skill set and hand tools are all that is required. I can help you through the process just let me know what direction you want to go.

Links to the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

If you can give me the first two digits of your serial number of your machine it will be 10 through 17?

check to make sure the door is locking when it should. If the door isn't locking or sensing that its locked the washer will not go into high speed spin.
