I have a Maytag Neptune TL ( Model # FAV6800AWW) washing machine does spend but clothes still soak after it done. when you spend it by hand, it only spend in counterclockwise.

Any error codes. What happens if you start a Spin Only Cycle witht the same load? Does the times stay stuck at xx minutes in the LED display and the machine constantely starts and stops?

The more info on your problem the better.

Tried to work with an owner of a Series 16 machine recently.

I discovered this with very painful guidance in troubleshooting that the Clutch Pulley was was seized up I feel do to a Leaky Tub Seal.

If and only if you have basic DIY skills you can work toward saving your $1k machine. I can help the DIY owner if you have the concept of pounding out bearings and pounding them in, read this post [FIXED] Maytag Neptune, Timer Problem

This is the forum to DIY the repair in. You can get the Service Manual from this forum and I'm writing supports notes that are a general guide line to do an Outer Tub Rebuild for around $170 if you control the parts buy cost correctly.

See this post for what is involved for a Outer Tub rebuild.

My washing machine keeps saying DC on the screen and will not drain all the way unless I take all of the clothes out. It is also leaking all over the floor.

Rose you have some issue here. The DC error code more than likely is from a failed Clutch Pulley possibly brought on by failed Tub Seal or Drain Line leak/cracked drain pump Drain Line hose leak from Sump Cap to Drain Pump. Possibly brought on byl the unbalance issue caused by the Clutch Pulley lot of wash tub banging around in Spin Cycle correct?

The average DIY'er can repair comes down to down time and how much you can tolerate before you junk a $1000 machine.

If you want to DIY I will try to help this forum makes the DIY help process very difficult. This forum makes it extremely difficult to find previous post. There is no effective search engine or Sticky post in this forum. IMHO this is not a true DIY forum.

If you want to DIY the issue Google "Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW" you can get the Service Manual from that site to help you DIY the fix along with forum guidance.

Maytag neptune washing machine is leaking water during wash cycle

If your going to DIY the fix or at least ID the leak source you will need to remove the fron cover off the machine. Power down the machine and follow the front panel removal process in this Clutch fix post.

If you need additional help Google "washer repair forum" and choose any of the Appliance Repair forums that you hit. Post your model number and I will help you out. If you don't have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual I can help you with that at a true DIY Appliance Repair Forum.

I have stopped supporting this forum to many issue with posting support pics and directions at this site. This site it is not a in my opinion a true DIY site for owners.........Rich

My maytag neptune top loading washing machine when washing sounds like there are belts squealing and the washer tub seems to hit the sides of the machine when spinning what is going on?

This sounds like a possible Clutch issue. Is the machine model an FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

When the washer is banging around do you take unbalance errors such as dC or uC?

Do you want to DIY the fix or call in a repair service. If you could confirm your machine model number......Rich
