Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Some FAV6800AW series ues an upper and clutch mounted one-way roller clutch bearing. Your machine may be like mine (series 16) and use only the clutch mounted one-way roller clutch bearing. I have pic's in a link in this post for a clutch that has a upper bearing as well as the standard clutch mounted bearing.
Can you rotate the wash basket CW by hand? It should not. The wash basket should only rotate CCW by hand and with very little resistance.
Take a look at this post and see if the trouble shooting steps will help. Your problem seems to be the same as this forum member issue. I believe you have some binding with the one-way roller clutch bearing in the clutch pulley or binding in the agitator shaft causing this issue. Could you rotate the spinner shaft coupler CW in the clutch pulley? See this post for my crude exploded clutch parts view for the spinner shaft coupler.

Was the Clutch Pulley One-Way Roller clutches bearing rusted up severely or only slightly? I'm trying to get a feel for a Tub Seal leak........Rich
