Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer - Machine is 5.5 years old just started displaying the "dc" error message. Move clothes around but takes 3 times plus to get the load to finish. Serviceman was not able to recreate the problem so said it was just load size. Why is this occurring after 5 years of trouble-free operation, all size loads?

Hello weirc215

Thank you for posting your model number.....so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A issues in this forum.


It is a Clutch issue. The One-Way Roller Clutches in the hub of the clutch are not locking up in Spin cycle. Most times you can get away with a low cost Clutch Maintenance.

See my Clutch Maintenance Post for the details….. Clutch Fix Post It’s posted under my old forum nickname dh1200s.

If you or someone you know have very basic mechanical skills you can do this and save your machine and you $300+ over calling in a repair company that may not know what the issue is.

I will help you or whoever will try to do this. Can you give me the 1st two digits serial number located here?

Washer is not spinning and washing


I’m an Owner like you I own the FAV6800AW and have helped many folks on this and other forums with FAV6800A and FAV9800A machine issues.

Let’s do a positive ID on your machine so there is no guessing as to a repair diagnosis. I can’t post pic’s in the clarification section so I have to post as solution. Is your machine is one of these models please let me know which one?

Do you take any error codes or screen message to the display such as dC, uC or a unbalance message.

Here the machine types supported in this forum; Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

If your machine is not one of these please disregard my comments…..Rich

Is the machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

Are there unbalance codes to the display such as dC or uC?

Error code of "dc" on my TL Maytag Neptune


If your machine is FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW the dc/UC errors are caused by a clutch malfunction. Your machine is shutting down with those errors so your Tub Displacement Sensor is working as designed.

Fix the Clutch malfunction and you can wash a single sock or a load of blue jeans and you will not take the dc or UC unbalance errors. See this post for the fix.

Post back if you have questions or need help.

Washer says DC and stops on rinse cycle


DC= Distribute Clothes: The load is unbalanced, preventing high speed spin. Redistribute clothes.
