My Maytag Neptune TL FAV6800AW Washing Machine is receiving the dC error code on every load. It sits at 12 minutes remaining and attempts to spin several times before throwing the codes.


Hello zacas6,

dC/uC unbalance errors are caused almost all the time by a Clutch malfunction. Take a look this post and see if you want to DIY the repair. I will help you through the process.

I would also check the Tub Displacement Sensor. This a thru the lid check and you get a feel of how to enter Service Mode.

Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check.
It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is in the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.


a. Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”


b. Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.


c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


d. Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


e. Press Hand Wash.


f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


I have some additional info if you decide to remove the Clutch in the machine if you are going to DIY.

Maytag FAV6800AW won't spin. COuld this be the


Hello leaweber,

Yes most times it is a Clutch malfunction . Is the machine failing with “dc” and or “UC” unbalance error codes in spin cycle? If you are you may have a Clutch malfunction or Tub Displacement Sensor failure more likely a Clutch issue.

You can do a quick TDS sensor check thru the lid just follow this from the Service Manual. If you machine will pass the TDS check the next step would be to remove the clutch from the machine and inspect as I describe in this post.

Tub Displacement Sensor check from the SM slightly modified;

Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check. This test is done with the washer lid raised see page 19 for the details.

It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is in the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.

a. Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

b. Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.

c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

d. Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

e. Press Hand Wash.

f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

If you get these results your TDS sensor should be just fine. Time to look at a clutch repair/replacement. Let me know if you need help…. Rich aka dh1200s

Maytag neptune fav9800aww has error for unbalance circuit always open or out of range


I had the same issue with FAV9800AWW, the Quick Spin Test showed "Machine cannot spin because the unbalance circuit is always open or out of range." Removed the Tub Displacement Sensor, disconnected the wire harness to the sensor, and found corrosion between the contacts, especially on the 12V DC pin. When I cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol and soft brush, discovered that the trace had corroded away, and so the board was not receiving the 12V DC input. Also had checked on the pins of the blue/white (signal) and pink (gnd), and was always negligible millivolt reading. The part number is Whirlpool 12002194. Ordered it from Appliance Parts Pros after reading various reviews. I found it cheaper other places, but those places got too many poor reviews for my taste.

UC code on may Maytag Neptune Washer FAV6800WW


Continuous Unbalanced Circuit. Improper signal from Tub Displacement Sensor.
Wet Clothes • Very small clothes loads can cause unbalanced loads - add additional towels. • Excessive suds may have been present. • Check Tub Displacement Sensor connection and main harness connector at machine control board. • Check Tub Displacement Sensor for 0 to 3.0 Volts DC output voltage between ground and the board input. Check for 12 Volts DC input voltage between the ground and the board output. Only check for voltage at the Tub Displacement Sensor. Do not perform a continuity check. See Tub Displacement Diagnostics • Excessive motion was detected in spin Run Quick Spin Test with an empty tub to check Tub Displacement Sensor and machine control board. • Check for restricted drain system.

Will not finish last spin cycle or drain water out of tub.The letters "dc" flashes on the monitor.


The issue with dc/UC errors will only get worse. Take a look at this post and see if it will help you. Many owners of the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW have experienced this issue. Root cause almost all the time is the one-way roller clutch bearings. There could be an issue with the Tub Displacement Sensor and there is a quick test for this I will attach the test in this post. If you have basic mechanical skill sets give it a try. I and others will try to help you thru the issue if you decide to go forward, post back if you have questions. Rich

3.0 Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check.

3c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

3e. Press Hand Wash.


3f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). If you get these results your Tub Displacement sensor should be OK and I believe it’s not the component failure producing dc/UC errors in spin cycle. I would remove the clutch for inspection and re-lube. There is a more technical troubleshooting method to check Tub Displacement Sensor in the Troubleshooting guide and Service manual.

Dc error code just moved


Hello apalo14,
Do you think your FAV6800AW got jarred around in the move?
The FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual on Page 53 will take you thru the leveling process. I would check the front and rear struts to make sure they are supporting the tub correctly. You will have to raise the top of the washer page 33 of the SM will show you how to release the top of the washer. Page 41 will take you through front panel removal of two 5/16” screws. I would remove the front panel and check that tub is being supported by the front and rear struts properly see pages 40 thru 43. With the front cover removed check the mounting of the Tub Displacement Sensor page 42. If those checks all look good I would run the Tub Displacement Sensor check below, this test is detailed in the SM.
3.0 Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check.

3a. Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”


3b. Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.


3c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


3d. Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).


3e. Press Hand Wash.


3f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). If you receive these results your Tub Displacement sensor should be OK.


If your machine does pass the Tub Displacement Sensor check and all of the above checks out then as unlikely as it may seem you may have a clutch issue. But let’s see what we have after the above checks are completed.
