Cindy,

I feel you have a Tub Seal Leak and from what you describe the Outer Tub bearings need to be replaced.


It’s a job but most DIY’ers can do this despite what you may see posted about calling in a expert and shell out $450+.

What are the 1st two digits of your serial number? They will be 10,11,12 thru 17.

How long can you be with the washer down?

I estimate a Tub Seal kit with Tranny O-ring and bearings to be about and the tool to be about $70…..but you get to extend the service life of your investment.

I will post a link with some info. I would not buy anything until your husband removes the Inner Wash basket form the Spinner Support. I had a difficult time removing the Spinner bolts from the Spinner assembly. You will need a impact tool to remove them air or electric.

I’m an owner not a repair person with basic mechanical skill sets nothing fancy. But you have done a Clutch maintenance or replacement and I feel you can accomplish.

Take a look at the post and see what you think. One of the links discuss a Series 15 with integrated One-Way Roller clutches in the upper Outer Tub bearing assembly. You will read how this owner got around this fantastic Maytag improvement…..they should have stayed with the Upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing ring for all series.

You will need this tool
to remove the Spinner Nut. See Page 48/49 of the Service Manual for removing the Spinner Nut. It can be done with a impact tool and a 1.75” socket.

My neptune tl fav6800aww starts, then I believe at th first spin cycle starts then stops. Then it starts a loop of this process and never continues on. No error codes are displayed. When I open the lid...


Open the washer lid and see if you can rotate the wash basket CCW this is the Spin direction.


The wash basket should not rotate CW. If the the wash basket will not rotate CCW then I feel the One-Way Roller Clutch bearing is seized. If you place the washer cycle in a Spin Only cycle I believe you may see the same fail process with no error code.


If you want to DIY the fix Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW. That will take you to a FAV6800A Sticky.

I feel you will find that the Clutch has failed due to a leaky Tub Seal. A replacement Clutch Pulley will more than likley get you back in service. Once you have the Service Manual you can pull the front cover off drop the Clutch Pulley out and inspect.

I won't offer any more help on this site it is just to difficult to work issues. You can see by past ratings I know the machine and have helped owners. If you are not the DIY type then callin in a Service Repair will cost $65 to $90 range and more than likely they will not have a clue. Go thru the FAV6800A forum here and search the post. i.e. this is typical repair service result for support........ http://www.fixya.com/support/t8683813-6_year_old_maytag_neptune_tl_washer_just

Not hammering service people, most just don't have the hands on knowledge to diagnose machine issues. Once you know the fail point anyone that has very basic mechanical skill sets can repiar the machine. Go to the forum that has the Sticky and open up an issue in the Maytag washer part of that forum and I will help. I scan the forum a few times a day. If you are not into a DIY fix just disregard this post.

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 TL clutch problems- Class Action Lawsuit??


I sounds like this is a common problem with the Maytag Neptune TL after about 3-5 years. Mine finally went out yesterday after several months of bearings getting louder all of the time. It looks like the bearings and the controller are gone. What happened to washing machines that last 15 - 20 years?

Clutch removal on Neptune TL


I checked with the person that was watching me remove the clutch and he said RH. Make sure you reseat the clutch properly on re-install. I had to place the belt back on and rock it back and forth to re-seat on the shaft. Without removing the tub, it's a tight work space. We did raise the tube a bit with a lever under the motor to get a bit more clearance.
