I feel the the dispenser valves are not working properly. I have post somewhere in this forum to troublshoot using Service Mode to see if the Dispenser Valves will open.
I'm a DIY owner and know the machine well. If you want repair I suggest moving to a true DIY forum and I will help.
Appliance Repair Forums> Appliance Repair Talk> Washers> Maytag/Magic Chef/Admiral/Jenn-Air
Then repost issue if you want to DIY. If elect to call in a repair service give the Service Company the Model Number and they may ask for the Serial Number. That info is listed on the rear right hand side of the console.......D*ick
Don't replace your washer if you want to DIY the fix I will help you. If you you can clean up the One-Way roller clutches in the clutch pulley and upper One-Way Roller Clutches if your machine series uses that assembly. The cost of that repair would be for a can of WD-40. My comments are based on the FAV6800A or FAV9800A for support in this forum. If your machine type is not one of those then please disregard my pos, if it is do read on. You are describing a common failure for FAV6800A or FAV9800A caused by a Clutch malfunction 9.99998 times of 10. See this post Clutch repair post for the DIY fix. I?m an owner of the FAV6800A machine. I suggest diving in and do the repair yourself and save $300 plus over a service repair. I will help you all the way and offer phone support if necessary, my support is free. What are the first two digits of your serial number of your machine. From the front of the machine the s/n tag is on the right rear console. Could be 10, 12, 15, 16, 17?etc. That will give me a feel if your Clutch assembly uses the Upper One-Way roller clutch ring. At the Clutch repair post link you to you can pull the Service Manual a must for DIY'ers. If you decide to DIY I have some additional info?. so just let me know what direction you want to go. You can drain the excess water out of the wash tub in Service Mode; Process slightly modified from the Service Manual; Enter Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads ?00? Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key. I'll let my rating speak to my ability and success on this forum.....don't throw away your machine and good luck if you try to find a local repair person that has a clue as to what is causing this failure.

Hey mhjw3, I’m guessing the machine type is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW and you are failing with dc and or UC errors to the console in spin cycle.Is that correct?If you have DIY skills see this Post. and the second post for the step by step to repair the clutch in the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW. Also look at the post I just replied to.From limited info I feel your are experiencing a clutch malfunction with your washer.If you want to dive in and can tolerate some down time I will try to help you DIY the fix.If a DIY fix is not your choice you can run the info in the post by a repair service and get a repair estimate so you can reach a decision point to repair or replace.If this is a clutch issue most DIY folks choose to DIY the repair and save big $.Post back if you have questions.
See this post for the details on a DIY repair for clutch issues with this machine, post back if you have questions. Most DIY folks can do this it's just a tight work area and you will save yourself $350+ in parts and labor. Your machine is a series 17 first two digits of your S/N mine is a series 16 and did not use the upper oneway roller clutch bearing. If you DIY the repair I would like to know if your series 17 machine has the upper roller clutch bearing. Rich
