Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag Neptune will not start.

I put too large of a load in the Maytag Neptune and it will not start. I have unplugged it and checked our circuit breaker in the house. The circuit breaker is okay. I may have burnt out the wall outlet. Not sure. Turned it off for a while and will try again later. Any recommendations?

""The circuit breaker is okay."" that is a good 1st check.

""I may have burnt out the wall outlet. "" Plug a 120VAC device to the washer outlet and see if it works. Why do you think you burnt out/damaged the outlet?

""Turned it off for a while and will try again later."" When you power up the washer do you have any Console indications that the machine is on. I will assume your machine is a FAV6800A TL. Do you have any LED display indicators turned on?

That is all I can help with for now. I'm a technical owner of the FAV6800A machine and will try t help if uour machine is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A.

Most important what is the model number of your machine. This forum fails big time to ask members for Model# and Serial # of their machine.

Here is the Service Manual for the FAV6800A/FAV9800A

Maytag front loader washer--door won't open but lock light off

Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.

If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.

Wont do anything

It is a long shot, but better than nothing...unplug your unit for a full two minutes (recommended by manufacturer's owners manual). This will allow any stored energy in the circuit board to dissipate and may allow your circuit board to "reset" when you plug it back in. Then give it a try.
