Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
""is this still the manufacturers issue to resolve""
Nope we are on our own.
I feel you have a slight tub seal leak causing the Clutch One-Way Roller clutches bearing to become contaminated…...again.
I would drop the Clutch Pulley out inspect and clean and look at replacing the tub seal if you feel it’s worth your while.
If the Outer Tub bearings are not causing increased rotational resistance I would change out the Tub Seal, Tranny O-Ring. This is a job but can be done by most folks that replaced the clutch. It’s comes down to can you tolerate the down time?
A couple of post if you decide to go forward with a Tub Seal replacement…… The post discuss Outer Tub Bearing replacement. You would just remove the Spinner Assembly and replace the Tub Seal and Tranny O-ring. This is a major tear down but again can be done by most DIY’ers that take on Clutch Maintenance or replacement.
Outer Bearing Tub Replacement 1.
You would need the Tub seal see Sears Parts Direct. I would also pick up the Tranny O-ring seal (series 10) and this tool
It’s cheaper to buy the Spinner Nut Locking tool and Spinner wrench separately I don’t know why.
If you decide to go forward I will offer some additional info/support……..Rich

Tips for a great answer:
Google ""Maytag Neptune load unbalance""
Read thru the post. I feel you have a Clutch malfunction even though you may not be see DC ot UC unbalance errors to the Console.
I'm seeing that around the 5 to 6 yr mark it's time for a Tub Seal replacement and possible Outer Tub and Spinner Support bearings should be replaced on the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines. It's not too bad for most DIY owners.
