    My Neptune top load washer will not drain. It stops at the spin cycle and gives me a dc error message.

    Maytag repairman says clutch is out over $350.00 to repair. This is a 2 year old machine. Boy did I make a bad choice. My Kenmore masher was still working when I gave it away after 10 years. Maytag should do a recall on this machine.

    Dear Guest,

    I had your problem and just purchased a new LG which I learned that parts are very durable and not as expensive to replace. The entire control panel is under $100 to replace. The serviceman where I got my LG hasn't seen any come in for repair yet (over 5 years of LG sales) Good luck!

    This looks like an ongoing thing!!! My machine is only 1month old. The repairman couldn't figure out what what wrong with it. So he ordered a new circuit board!!!! Now I have no warranty. We paid for a 3 year warranty! What a rip off....

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley hub to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 3.5 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!
I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium and heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.

The error code dc means that there is an out of balance condition and the clothing has to be redistributed.

    This is for GUEST who posted comment on Apr 4. The dc error code should not be clutch problem. More likely, if load is not really unbalanced then problem is usually with the Tub Position Sensor at the side of the drum which may have broken loose.

GETTING DC ERROR CODE WITH A GRINDING SOUND AND THEN IT STOPS COMPLETELY


The DC error code is 9 time out of 10 caused by a Clutch Pulley malfunction. The grinding may ne Outer Tub Bearings but need more info. Open the Washer Lid. Spin the wash basket CCW. Do you hear and grinding noise?

The noise may be coming from under neath the tumblers. Further troubleshooting is required.

Do you have basic DIY mech. skills and do you want to save your $1K machine?

If so Google Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW

Maytag neptune toploader won't finish cycle code dc. What does dc mean?


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.
