How to replace the belt on the Maytag Neptune FAV6800AAW?


See if my Clutch Fix post will help. I also have links to Service Manual which will be big help. The drive belt can be walked on the Clutch Pulley but it is a very snug fit even with the drive belt tension bolt loosened. Watch you fingers as you walk the drive belt onto the clutch pulley….Rich

What does the lr code mean


The code means locked rotor. Disconnect power to the washer and remove the rear access panel. Remove the rear access panel securing screws and pull the panel off the cabinet.

Turn the drum pulley by hand to determine if there's a restriction that caused the locked rotor error. If there's a restriction, remove the drive belt. Pull the belt from one side of the drum pulley then turn the pulley in such a way that the belt unwraps from it.

Turn the drum pulley and the motor pulley to determine whether the drum or the rotor is being restricted.

The outer tub bearing is damaged if there's restriction in the drum pulley. Specify the model of your washer for the specific replacement part/s and installation guide.

Try to free the rotor if it is stuck by forcibly turning it back and forth. Replace the drive motor if the rotor cannot be unstuck. Specify the model of your washer for the specific replacement part and installation guide.

Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWA seems to be rubbing


I suspect that you have a leveling bracket come loose. Many of the Maytag washers also use a large concrete block fastened underneath to help balance things. Look to see if yours is this type. If so then the steel rod holding thinge that holds it in place may have come loose...should be easy to put back correctly but will require some muscle. Most of the Sears Kenmore units have springs that can come loos from their connections and require re hooking but I do not think you have this type of unit for a Maytag. Hope this helped.

The belt keeps coming off my maytag washer mo. mah55flbww. tub bearing seem good motor seems ok


That is a tough one, especially since you indicate that the bearings are okay. The belt not wanting to stay on a Maytag Neptune washer usually does not bode well. It is usually an indication that the drum bearings are shot. Look for brown splatter on the back of the drum and the inside bottom of the washer. The presence of any brown discoloration is a pretty good indicator that the bearings are going. Anyway, hope this helped, sorry for your problem, and best wishes.

Belt Re-assembly


If you have a really old dryer (not a neptune), and if the idler pulley is about 4-in diameter you have chosen the hardest dryer to replace a belt on. There is a diagram on the bag your new belt came in. The door in the back of the dryer will be helpful. The tricky part about this one is that the fabric side of the belt goes against the basket drum.

A Neptune belt is easier, but can still be tricky.
First, put the drum in position against the back wall; but without the front supporting ring. The rubber side goes aginst the drum. Line up the new belt on the drum according to the marks left by the old belt.
Reach under the drum and match up the belt to its position on the motor pulley. Lift the idler pulley up until you can slide the belt onto it. Gently release the belt and idler pulley. Check to see if it stayed in position.
Carefully replace the support ring and install the four screws holding it in position. Slowly rotate the drum counter-clockwise about two full turns to better align the belt on the drum before restarting the machine.

Good luck!

Belt keeps coming off the pulley


I suggest you check your drum bearings, belt will only come off if misaligned.
