Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
The washer just beeps and beeps. Occassionally I have to play around with the buttons to get it to work, but it beeps during a cycle, powers on sometimes and starts beeping, beeps in the middle of the night. is this the control board? is this easy to replace if I order one?
Mark I’m an owner like you and I would try to DIY the fix. The Control board has a warranty period of 5 years. I buy all my parts such as this from e-bay. I have two with the LED FAV6800A consoles that work. You could call Maytag Customer service talk them to sending you a Control Board if you Control board is still under warranty. They did for me.
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
The Control Board is where I would start. I would inspect and reseat the Console Keypad connector to the Control Board and all the connectors on the Control Board. Follow the Service Manual for Console removal. Remove the 120VACwasher power cord from the service outlet
To ease removing the console from the machine I would remove the three number 15 Torx screws at the top of the console and the 5/16” sheet metal screws holding the back metal access panel. This would allow a bit more ease to unseat the console from the washer top then let it roll forward toward the front of the machine resting on the washer top.
See last Pic
Follow the Service Manual for Console removal. A lot of folks break off part of the retaining arms that slide fit to secure the Console to the washer top. With the sheet metal back off you can see these retaining tabs a bit more clearly and maybe not break them off. Standing at the back of the machine press in the left side of the console facing you (right side of the console if you are facing the front of the machine) to unseat while pushing to your right you may have to tap with the palm of your left hand the left side of the console to unseat from the slide fit retaining tabs. When the Console tabs release from the washer top roll the Console toward the front of the machine resting on the washer top. Sounds worse than it is, it’s just hard for me to describe.
See the broken slide fit tabs at the top of this pic to the left and middle tab. This was a e-bay buy and the owner had no clue how to remove.
To unseat/remove the Console ribbon cable from the washer Control board socket; be very careful here so you don’t damage the ribbon cable as you unseat. There is a retaining tab you have to unseat first and slide up the ribbon cable first. Press in the tabs on this ribbon cable retainer with your thumb and index finger release and slide up the cable as I show in the picks. Once the retainer is slide up the cable as shown gently pull the ribbon cable from the socket to unseat. This ribbon cable is single sided the black contacts look to be carbon deposit don’t scrape. But I would look for any corrosion on the contacts and socket that may bridge the contacts.
If the ribbon cable contacts and Control board look good reseat and power up the washer with the Console still resting on the washer top.
If still a no go then I would replace the Control board p/n 25001217 See Sears Parts Direct for look up
Try e-bay I have had good luck with all parts purchased.
Your looking at $180 from most vendors but do what you feel is best for you.
Good luck and post back if you have questions........Rich
