LL = Large Load detected. Unless you really overloaded the machine I believe there may be other issues lurking. How large was the wash load that caused this error code to the display?

I'm an owner like you with some basic knowledge and hands on experience. LL code is large load detected. I believe this alarm is triggered by increased motor load/torque.


This error code is not documented very well in the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW Service Manual. If you haven’t overloaded the machine then there are other issues. Pull the SM from that link above. It has the all important Service manual and Use and Care Guide combined.


I think this may be an issue related to the Clutch or possible increased rotational resistance of the Spinner assembly and or the Transmission/Tumblers. I vote right now for a Clutch issue. If you have basic mechanical skills take a look at this post. I would drop the clutch out of the machine and inspect and clean up and re-lube the One-way Roller clutch bearings and see if this helps.

I would go into Service Mode and step thru and document Diag codes form page 17 of the SM and see if you find any recorded error conditions. I would be curious to see if error code block 16 indicates a fail condition. I'm thinking of a possible high motor torque condition detected that may have triggered the LL code just a WAG at this time.

I would write down all error codes then clear all error codes and start collecting from your next wash cycle but I’m going to assume the LL code happened during a spin cycle do you know what part of the wash cycle the LL code triggered?

Maytag neptune tl displays LL and stops during the rinse cycle


Sorry chukenne,
Having not experienced this issue on my FAV6800AWW I missed this error code in the manual is that your machine type? Error code “LL” is documented in the troubleshooting part of the SM as Large Load detected. Does this happen with all wash load sizes? I would go into Service Mode and step thru and document Diag codes form page 17 of the SM and see if you find any recorded error conditions. I would be curious to see if error code block 16 indicates a fail condition. I'm thinking of a possible high motor torque condition detected that may have triggered the LL code just a WAG at this time. You may want to clear all error codes and start collecting from your next wash cycle but I would make a list of all codes before you clear them for reference of fail events of past wash cycles. I’m going to assume the LL code happened during a spin cycle. What caused you to drop the clutch out and re-lube/ Were you taking dc/UC errors in spin cycle? Rich
