Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Help I have a top load Maytag nepune TL FAV6800AW. It has been running successfully for 3/4 year and is sitting level and has not (recently) been overloaded. The latest load of clothes washed properly through 2/3 of the wash cycle until the last 12 min. when it needed to spin. It spun slowly and after some time and clicking noises it showed the dc (drain clogged?, no idea) code and had several inches of water remaining in the tub. Please help

    Bought a new samsung from sears. It has never worked right. Shows the "dc" unbalanced code every time a load is washed. Sears repairman comes out and says it's something wrong with the motherboard. When machine is put on "spin only" it tumbles for a few minutes then SPRAYS THE CLOTHES WITH WATER! Sears is playing games with us in ordering a new motherboard, says it will take at least another week to arrive (I think someone forgot to place an order) We haven't been able to wash clothes for a month, we already gave away our old machines. I'm going up to sears tomorrow night to have a talk with the sales manager. Needless to say, I'm not very happy.

Check:
1. the drain hose is not kinked or trapped.
2. look in the manual and see if there is a filter which you should have checked and cleaned in the last '3/4 year'.

It's unlikely to have anything to do with loading-a common misconception is that you can overload machines. It's much more common to underload, which causes out-of-balance spinning and walkies around the kitchen.

My 88 year old mother has the Neptune TL. There is a problem during washing cycles regarding imbalances with the machine. She does not have many clothes to wash and when there is a small amount the cycle...


Is the machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

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

If you can confirm the model number and what error codes to the LED display. I own the FAV6800A and can help with all issues.

My maytag neptune TL fabric softener cup seems to be clogged, what do I do?


If your machine is a FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW see if this post will help you. Once the Fabric Softener top is removed you can flush the dispenser and run some pipe cleaners thru the exit ports to help remove gunk build up.

If there is a water flow issue into the Fabric Softener dispenser then further investigation may need to take place. I discuss how I would start the troubleshooting for that as a possible issue.

The Service Manual for reference use and care guide has some info
