Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Spin Option I can't change the spin option on the display of my Maytag Neptune TL top loading washer. It has been doing that for a couple of weeks now... And when it is washing clothes, it will start beeping and changing the spin option by itself constantly. Last night, I left a load to wash before going to bed, and in the middle of the night, I heard the machine turn on and I guess finish up the loan... HOURS later....????

    I have seen this problem, the electronic board (the brains) will probably need replaced.

    This has been happening with mine for weeks, {along with 1 years worth of puddles of water on the floor.} Now the machine won't even start, can't et a repair on it for another two weeks. Does anyone know how expensive this would be to fix?

The problems posted by kim875 and kirsty2 all seem to be the result of faulty signals from the electronic board. This seems to be a real problem with this model machine. I would try to get board replaced under warranty , if at all possible.

Maytag Neptune TL

The TL neptune has a small shock absorber on the middle left hand corner behind the front panel. it uses a small wiring clip that could be loose, with a type of inertia switch.
A common issue I've encountered with this machine is underloading. The snubber and springs allow a fair amount of movement. Don't do a few simple items or mixed load in this machine.
If these don't seem to help, let us know.

We just moved and the house came with a Maytag Neptune TL which won't spin if there are clothes in the cylinder. It will spin empty. Please help! Thanks.

Washer bangs around in spin cycle and throws a DC or UC unballance code with cloths in the wash basket is that correct?

If so it's a Clutch issue.

Maytag neptune top load washer will not spin out with small loads, large loads are fine. I get the DC error at about 10 mins left in spin cycle. No amount of shifting load will solve problem

This is a Clutch issue could be a easy fix if the Tub Seal is not the root cause.

Maybe I can help with the Washer if it's a FA6800A/FAV9800A. Is it one of those and why do you feel you need a lid switch? Are you getting OP,OD,FL error codes to the LED display if the machine model is a FAV6800A.....Rich

Neptune tl washer will go half way threw cyle,start to spin,stop and start to spin,stop and start to spin .tried to unplug it restart and nothin, tried different settings still nothing. tried moving the...

If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual.
If it one of those machines I suspect a possible clutch malfunction.

See this post for what is involved to do clutch maintenance or replacement.

Do you have any error codes to the display if it's a FAV6800A such as dC or uC unbalance codes. Is the wash tub banging around on Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle? ……Rich

Neptune won't advance from Rinse to SPIN

If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.

A dc error means that the clothing is not being distributed properly in the basket. This usually happens when the machine is lightly loaded. If the load seems o.k. then the problem is probably with the sensor at the side of the basket.
