In agitation the basket should not turn. The brake package needs to be adjusted. Unless you're handy I would call a tech to do it.

SOURCE: Washer won't agitate

Just fixed the same problem. Its a broken belt. Take the front panel off and to the right of the tub you will see a pulley and belt. We replaced both the pulley and the belt for around $40. Was real easy to do yourself.

SOURCE: Everything is working except the spin cycle

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.

After removing the power (easist was to shut breaker off), then replaced fuse just inside upper front left cover area by way of 2 white screws on bottom front panel. Clips secure the top into the horizontial lid panel (which you will also have to remove later if fuse keeps blowing) That worked for a coupe weeks as long as the Cycle Selector dial was always pushed in when you opened/closed the washer lid. Then the the problem returned. Only way out was to partially remove the unit from the wall and remove the lid assembly, which was much easier than first thought. Pictures attached. Tools needed are Phillips screwdriver and Nut drivers to remove the horizontial lid/panel from above the washer tub, and below the timer panel/dryer. Didn't need to remove the angled cover below dryer as Washer Door lid assembly is wholly below. Just push the dryer toward the rear, then remove two larger nuts from top left and top right corners. No nuts at rear, just clips that slide in/out. This allows lid cover to be pulled straight out (I had to remove the overflow tube on front right of tub, and one semi-rusted nut-driven screw from the Hot/Cold filler plate which is at the rear of the lid cover. That will make it easier to manipulate the cover and release the 4-pin plastic connector shown in pictures at the left rear corner. Then the entire cover/lid slides out easily as you may have to push the dryer top back to ease it out. Then flip it over and replace the switch and slide the 4 wire connector back under the plastic trip. and reverse the un-install. 4-pin connector is flat-keyed on one side, but it is tight to get to. My OEM part even included a new fuse (19.95 + shipping) Unit is now working fine for last 2 weeks.b88b41c.jpg8de8e68.jpg798b349.jpg49eb6d1.jpg6f06d50.jpg48c84c4.jpg

Take the belt off the transmission pulley and see if you can turn it by hand. It will agitate on direction and spin when you turn it the other direction.
Put the timer to spin with the belt off and see if the motor will run. There may be a problem in the start switch on the motor letting it start in one direction but not in the reverse direction.
Special tools are required to remove the transmission and brake assembelies. You also want to make sure there is nothing sticking through the holes in the basket causing it to lock up such as a nail or screw that may have been left in a pocket.
Post back with what you find.
Thanks/Mike

Tub rotates CW during agitation, out of balance, hits side of metal cabinet, but no error code



Hello srcoray,

Did you replace the clutch, just trying to get a feel for your hands on experience with the machine? If you did the work did your machine use the upper roller clutch bearing along with the clutch pulley mounted roller clutch bearing?

The FAV6800AW uses a reversing motor and motor controller that powers the motor and clutch pulley to rotate CW in Wash/Agitate cycle and CCW in Spin Cycle.

In Wash/Agitate cycle the roller clutch bearing should rotate freely CW allowing the agitator shaft to drive the transmission in wash cycle driving the tumblers to rotate only not the wash basket. In spin cycle the roller clutch bearing will lock up (one-way roller clutch bearing) driving the spinner shaft to rotate the wash basket and transmission CCW. Unless my thinking is wrong it sounds like the one way roller clutch bearing is frozen or dragging and not rotating freely in wash cycle rotating the wash basket CW. I’m an owner like you and will try to help.

Just a few other questions;

If you have a load of wet clothes in the wash basket and you select Spin Only cycle will the spin cycle complete with out dc/UC errors?

With the lid raised can you rotate the wash basket CW? It should not; it should only rotate CCW and do that with very little resistance.

Maytag stack unit Model LSE7806ACE leaks


It is most likely the tub seal. Take the two phillips head screws out of the front cover located low on the cover lift forward and remove. Set the machine two low level and fill with water only no soap or clothes when unit starts agitating look at the bottom center of the clothes tub if water is leaking here then you will need to replace the tub seal and tub bearing assembly.

Maytag MAV7000 AWW washing machine agitator won't spin freely.


When you grab the fabric dispenser and move the agitator "counter "clockwise you should hear the rachet noise,once you try and move it back "clockwise" the fabric dispenser should slide inside the agitator and the agitator should NOT move.

Maytag Frontloader (Perf series) brand new Agitator off axis


Okay! We just fixed this problem on our washer. First, be safe and be sure that the electrical cord is unplugged. Then you want to take the lid panel off of your washer. Then you'll feel around under the base of the agitator/washer basket. You should notice that its feet sit inside huge springs which are fixed to the base of the machine unit. Determine whether any of your basket feet are disloged from their spring and re-insert. Make sure the fit is good or else you might have the same problem again. After you reassemble, plug in the machine and try a test spin without any clothes. Then try with a smallish load.

Hopefully this helps.

The ***** part of the agitator is supposed to ratchet in the clockwise direction. this is normal. If you can spin it in either direction (turned off) then you need a set of agitator dogs.
