Common problem with the FAV6800AW and FAV9800AW

See this post. I explain what is wrong and how to FIXYA the issue. You can turn the drain pump in Service Mode to empty the wash tub.

If you don't want to DIY the repair I believe you are looking at around $300 to have repaired. It's a tight work area but anyone with basic mech. skills can do this for around $60 for the clutch . A lot of folks have done this rather then junk the machine. Post back if you have questions.

What does code uL mean. this comes on in the drain spin cycle


Hi, a UL error code means a load not balanced. The washer is running a load-balance correction routine. Please allow the washer to continue. If the dial is flashing and the washer has stopped, redistribute the load, close the lid, and press START/PAUSE.

Code error for my front loadef panasonic washing machine reads U 11


U codes are User "Error" Codes.

CODE U11
The washing machine cannot drain.
Check that filter is not blocked or obstructed.
Check drain hose is clear of any blockage or obstruction.
Check wiring to drain pump (Done only by a Service Technician.)
Check drain pump is not defective (Done only by a Service Technician.)
Check level sensor or switch (Done only by a Service Technician.)
Check wiring to level sensor (Done only by a Service Technician.)

Many Panasonic washing machines seem to have a problem spinning with heavy loads; they become unbalanced and give a U13 "load out of balance" code. Most other brand machines can spin the same "heavy" load with no problem.

Why won't the washer drain? Pump appears to be


if this issue is because you hear water in the machine when the tub spins......
thats normal, its called the balance ring
centrifical force, pushes the water in the lid, outward helping to use the sling weight, as a counter balance
its 100 percent normal to hear sloshing when turning the tub by hand

Washer making loud noise. Shuts off, not draining.


It appears that you have an imbalanced load, or a nearly balanced load with a machine that easily goes off balance during spin. I would suggest:
1. After the unit trips on imbalance and stops spinning, open the lid and redistribute the laundry load inside to balance its weight equally around the interior of the drum. Note that cotton fabrics hold much more water than synthetics, and this has resulted in imbalanced loads even though they visually appear to be balanced. Close lid to restart spin.
2. Remove the front panel and check both tensioning/centering springs on the sides of the tub. A loose spring could easily cause the machine to go off balance.
3. Finally, check the main bearng play by holding the drum steady and moving the top of the agitator spindle horizontally toward the rim of the tub. Any excessive play is a clear indicator that bearing is excessively worn and may be resulting in an unbalanced load.

Off balance


make sure you have all the shipping material out of unit..4 bolts in back and styrofoam under tub if so ,then get a adjustable wrench ,,,put unit in drain spin cycle or spin cycle only..when unit gets to fastest spin ,,thats will come when its about 8 minutes left..tighten each leg lock nut on unit until unit stops vibrating..only turn the lock nut not the leg..only adjust lock nut on legs in high speed spin

Clothes too wet


Watch the washing machine go through its complete spin cycle.(It could have a filter in the pump,check for water flow coming out of the drain. Make sure the washing machine is fully leveled with a square. make sure you put fairly big loads to keep it balanced. If the washing comes out wet on the final spin ,add some more garments and then put it on spin again as the w/m might be going out of balance. Under the work bench on top some times there is a spring to adjust the tension. about every five or six years the motor brushes need changing.
