It's most likely the water inlet valve solenoids. Be sure to unplug the machine. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid. Also check the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Cold water valve not working. have checked that water is at outlet of cold water tap. Can you help? thank you


Water Valve Test
When in Diagnostic Mode, the WASH TEMP UP button turns the hot water valve on. The Hot LED is on when the hot valve is on. The WASH TEMP DOWN button turns the cold water valve on. The Cold LED is on when the cold valve is on.

DIAGNOSTIC MODE
Turn the power on at the power point but off at the machine. Press and hold the WASH TEMP DOWN button and then the POWER button until the machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up. Release buttons when the beeps indicate diagnostic mode has been entered.

There maybe up to 3 filters cold water line. There is sometimes 1 at each end of the water hose itself and also in the valve which can be removed with pliers. (see picture)

Undo the 2 screws at the back of the buttons panel
Undo the connection of the valve
If you are good with a multimeter check that there is about 65 ohms resistance across the terminals of the valve. If not, then replace the valve.
Also sometimes the workings inside the valve can jam shut so replace the valve.

Cold water valve?


Replace the inlet valve. This is a common fault easily fixed with a new valve.

Washer won't drain


DIAGNOSTIC MODE
To enter diagnostic mode follow the steps below.
1. Turn the power on at the power point but off at the machine.
2. Press and hold WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN and then press POWER until the
machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up.
3. Release the buttons after the beeps as the beeps indicate diagnostic mode has been entered.
4.1 Last Fault Data
When in diagnostic mode the last fault can be found by pressing the SPIN SPEED UP or DOWN
buttons until the HOLD and SLOW lights are illuminated. Binary can then be read from the wash
progress lights.
4.2 Drain Pump Test
MW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press SMART TOUCH CYCLES to activate the drain pump. To
deactivate the pump, press SMART TOUCH CYCLES again.
GW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press REGULAR to activate the drain pump. To deactivate the pump,
press REGULAR again.

4.3 Water Valve Test
The water valves can be activated in diagnostic mode by pushing WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING UP to activate the Hot Valve and WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN to activate
the Cold valve as with previous models.
Pressing each button once will activate the valve. To de-activate valve press the same button
again. This is also good to use when installing machines as it takes the shock out of the fittings
and seals and allows checking for leaks on the inlet hoses, both machine end and tap or super-tub
end.
Caution: Do not leave the machine unattended when either or both valves are operating

50. (00110010) Hot Valve Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicates the hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve harness has not
been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit. See fault 48 for service procedure.
48. (00110000) Hot and Cold Valve Coil Faulty
The Motor Controller module has measured voltages from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicate both the hot and cold valves are faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve
harnesses have not been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves or the
pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Check the valve coils are not faulty (open circuit).
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
Action: Replace the Motor Controller module.

No/low water inlet. Diag mode both ht & cold lights flash


first test water valve ohms reading, this fault could be either control module or water valve.first open top panel to see valves. turn power off to unit. try putting the hot water valve wire to the cold and the cold to the hot. hopefully they will reach, sometimes they dont. then put panel back on with loose screws. turn power on , select low water ,and hot fill.push start button but make sure your hoses r connected and turned on. the reason i"m telling u how to do this is to eliminate the control board as being faulty if the cold water comes into unit then the problem is your computer, if no water comes in it is your water valve.i hope this helps if u still need help please reply

Cold water wont come into machine


Debby,

Some handy links;

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

You could have a Cold Water inlet screen clogged. Turn off the Cold water supply to the machine and remove the cold water connection at the washer.
Take a pair of needle nose pliers and remove the remove the Cold Water Inlet screen as shown if it is clogged flush clean then reinstall and turn on the Cold Water supply valve.
I have my back Console cover remove for other work. The H/C water valve solenoids are seen here.

If you still have no Cold Water the valve may be stuck closed, or you have no 120VAC being applied to the Cold Water valve.
If you have 120VAC applied to the valve and no water flow the valve assembly will have to be replaced.
You can go into service mode and turn the Cold Water Valve and see if you hear it hum.
Enter / Exit Service Mode
To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys (simultaneously) for three seconds or until the control beeps the display will read 00.
Now got to page 16 of the Service Manual Board Output Test While in Service Mode, pressing the Delicates key will begin the Board Output Test. This test turns on a specified output after a key press.

Now press the Spin Only key…..did you hear the Cold Water valve hum. If so the 120VAC is applied from the Control Board and the valve may be stuck closed. If this is the issue the Water Valve inlet assembly will need to be replaced. Keep in mind I’m a technical owner and would double check the 120VAC on the Cold water valve solenoid before replacing. I’m just providing general info.

A work around if you are a Cold water user only like me is to reverse the hose connections at the washer hot to cold, cold to hot then select hot water fill. You now are filling the washer thru the Hot Water Valve assembly with the cold water supply source. The p/n from searspartsdirect.com is 12002242 for the valve assembly.

If you need to replace try a local parts supplier to make sure your 120VAC connections are the same as the original Water Valve Inlet assembly. The Service Manual will step you thru replacement if this is required.
Good luck and post back if you have questions…….Rich

My maytag neptune washer stop washing with 10 minutes left to go.


If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error. The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue. The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle.
Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only? I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket.
Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens. If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode. Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s. If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly. You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.

Maytag neptne fav 6800 aww does not fill wiht hot water. works fi


Hi Big Wags

I would remove both water hoses at the back of the washer and check the Hot & Cold inlet screens for a clog/restriction.

They look like this;

16bd3b6.jpg

You can turn the individual valves on in service mode using the procedure on page 16 of the Service Manual.

To enter Service Mode; press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”.

Now go into board output test by pressing the Delicates key.

Now press the Normal button to open the Hot Water Valve you can press the Normal button again to turn off the valve or just press the Off button to end the process. Or just use the wash cycle to toggle the H/C water valves on. I like folks to become familiar with using Service Mode and the SM.

If the inlet screens are free of debris and you have good water pressure from your source valve then you may have to replace the valve assembly Here is a link to check for FAV6800AW PARTS Sears Parts Direct. Shout back If you have questions. Rich
