Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
We have a Maytag Neptune Top Loader Model 6800 awn. I toke the front panel off and put the washer on spin cycle when it kicks on it turns fine one way but when it reverses it only goes a little way then locks up no codes on control panel is it the clutch or what ?
I will point you to a post for FAV6800AWW clutch maintenance/replacement. I also recommend a $60 clutch for the machine in that post.
The FAV6800AWW/FAV9800AWW use a One-Way Roller clutch bearing. This allows CW Clockwise rotation Agitate/wash cycle to drive the transmission which will rotate the tumblers. In Spin Cycle the Motor Controller will reverse the Motor direction and rotate the Clutch Pulley in the CCW/Spin cycle direction. The One-Way Roller clutches lock up in the CCW direction Spin Cycle direction.
To make sure I’m clear is the Clutch Pulley locking up in the CW direction the Agitate/Wash cycle direction? If so it sounds like the One-Way Roller clutch bearing are frozen/rusted up good and that will mean a clutch pulley replacement. You won't get away with clean up and re-lube of the Roller Clutch bearing. Just to let ya know there is Troubleshooting Guide in the console of the machine. Pull the power cord and remove the three #15 Torx screws top back of the console and tilt the access panel back, it should be in there. It has a schematic of the machine which was handy for me until I got a soft copy.
