Re: drain/spin cycle want start
Hi there f 03 fault is the drain pump ,what is happening is the drain pump is overheating and tripping toc on the pump windings, thats wy if you leave it off for an hour it will cool down and the toc will reset, but my advise to anyone with this fault is just to replace the pump, as one day the toc may fail and you could end up with a fire hazard

Check door switch: If
the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open
let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining.
Release switch. Motor should stop. Press
switch a second time. Washer should
start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid
switch is pressed, replace the switch.
Good deal your machine is a Series 11. “”Washer has stopped at 26 min with water in the drum. Will not spin or drain. Just sounds like it starts running then stops and repeats.”” I believe this is the start of a Spin Cycle of that Wash Cycle which Wash Cycle did you have selected? Are there any error codes to the LED display like dC or uC? If you stop that wash cycle with the wet load and do a Spin Only cycle will it complete with no error code? Does the wash tub bang around in Spin Only cycle with the wet clothes load? Standing by for some feedback and I will try to help. Here is the Service Manual and parts look up.Can you let me know if you want to try to DIY the fix? FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference.Sears Parts Direct for reference. Rich
I believe you are failing in spin cycle but that’s a wag without any error codes to go on.
With no error code it will require a bit more troubleshooting.If you start a Quick Wash cycle with minimal spin/soil settings I believe you will stop at the 21 min mark. Not sure what wash cycle you are in and Spin/Soil settings for that cycle but I believe this is the spin cycle of that wash cycle (34 min). I assume the washer did not pump out the water.The FAV6800A/FAV9800A is designed to start in the spin cycle with a fair amount of water in the wash tub so I assume you have water in the wash tub.You can enter Service Mode and turn on the drain pump to pump out the excess water.I’ll attach the process at the end of this post. Before we do that let’s gather some info for troubleshooting.I want you to do a Spin Only cycle with that wet wash load.Let me know if the Cycle completes.The FAV6800A/FAV9800A machines suffer from chronic clutch malfunctions which will cause failing in Spin Cycle usually with dC/uC unbalance errors.Can you complete a Spin Only cycle? My standard links for the DIY’er and can you let me know if you want to DIY the fix?Some folks can’t tolerate the down time and if you feel your aren’t qualified then I would recommend a qualified repair service.I’ll work with you until you decide to pull the plug on the DIY process. FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference.Sears Parts Direct for reference Pump out the excess water in the tub when failing in Spin Cycle; I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub. Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00” Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak keythe drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key. I’ll check back from time to time for your response.This board will not auto notify by e-mail of your response and most recently won’t let me post pics for troubleshooting support. If you are going to DIY and we have no error code to the display the next step is to remove the front cover of the machine start up a Spin Only cycle and see if the motor will turn the clutch pulley CCW.Just be careful of the belt and follow safety warnings in the Service Manual…..Rich If you want to work on this a bit quicker e-mail me at email@example.com
you have blockage in you drain plug. to solve this problem you'll have to remove the lower front panel of your machine by removing the 3 (1/4") screws on the vary bottom of the machine. once the panel is removed you'll see a 1 1/2" white PVC drainage plug. turn the inner plug to the left in till open. (WARNING ALL THE WATER IN THE DRUM WILL DRAIN THOUGH THIS PLUG) remove debris likes socks or everything that's there replace the panel and your all set.
Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......
Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
