Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
This depends on whether all the water is not being drained out or if additional water is being allowed in. The first thing to check is that the drain line is not kinked or obstructed. I would also suggest running a hot wash cycle with 1/2 cup of vinegar. This will help clean out any sludge build-up in the drain lines. The pump can be checked if this does not cure the problem. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the hoses from the pump. Use a flashlight to look into the suction port to make sure nothing is clogging the pump, like the occasional stray sock, etc.,and check the pump impeller. Be sure that no blades are missing or broken and that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are missing/damaged or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely the pump would be defective. These are some items to consider if the machine is not getting draining all water.
If however, it seems to be removing all the water, but additional water seems to be accumulating after the fact, then check the water inlet valve solenoids. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a bad solenoid. These are some things to consider and I am really sorry for your trouble. I hope this helped and best wishes.
