in the Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer Forum so I assume the machine type is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A correct?

Most issues are caused by a Clutch malfunction if the machine errors out with dC or UC unbalance error codes during the spin cycle. If your wash tub is banging around during a Spin Cycle and the TDS and Control board are working as designed the Control Board will shut the machine down with an unbalance error code dC or UC.

If the machine model is a FAV6800A LED console or a FAV9800A LCD console version it can be fixed with basic hand tools and some DIY effort. If you call in a repair service you are looking at $300 to $400 ballpark if they have a clue of how to troubleshoot the issue. If you DIY cost could be $0 if you have a can of WD-40 around a dab of lithium bearing grease to $75 ball park for a Clutch Pulley replacement.

See this post Clutch Fix and if you want to DIY and save/extend the service life of your 1$K machine.

Have a UC code. Washer starts than stops during cycles when the drum is moving. also hear a clicking sound Tx, Bob


If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Neptune Washer Spin Cycle


If your FAV6800A or FAV9800A wash tub is banging around in Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle and your Control Board signals a dC or uC error code to the console I feel you have a Clutch malfunction. I feel the TDS is working as designed with the unblance error code shut down.
See my Clutch Fix post for more info related to dC and uC unbalance errors with the FAV6800A and FAV9800A TL’s and the repair action…….Rich

What is your machine model number? Is it a FAV6800A or FAV9800A TL?


If it’s a FAV6800A or FAV9800A TL do you error out in the Spin cycle of the wash cycle with an unbalance error code such as dC or uC? Is the wsh tub banging around during Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle?

If so see this post Clutch Fix. I have a step by step maintenance/repair process for Clutch Pulley assembly issues related to the above error codes.

I have an error code uc in the spin cycle what could be causing the problem?


uC = a continuous unbalance condition of the wash load.

Because you are posting in the Fixya Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer forum I’m going to assume your machine type is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A.

For those machine types I feel you are experiencing a clutch malfunction. Can you confirm the machine model number and let me know if you want to try a DIY repair. You only need basic hand tools and skill sets to repair. See this post for what is involved and this a most recent post of a forum members repair for a dC error code condition in Spin Cycle which related to the uC error code in Spin Cycle.

Maytag neptune tl makes grinding sound and stops at 33 minutes in normal mode and at 24 minutes in quick wash mode



Hello djlampl,

With the lowest spin cycle setting I enter spin cycle in Quick Wash around the 21 minute mark. But first question is do you hear the grinding noise with the tumblers rotating during the wash/agitate cycle?

If you start a spin only cycle do you hear the grinding noise?

Does the washer error code out with an error code to the display? Codes such as dC, uC, Lr?, I assume the machine type is a FAV6800AW is that correct?

Any additional info will help in troubleshooting…..Rich

Assuming the machine type is a FAV6800A/FAV9800A here are some handy links;

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Neptune won't advance from Rinse to SPIN


If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.
