Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
I have a maytag neptune fav6800 top load washer. the first two digits on the serial number is 12. A bout a year ago i replaced the clutch. and it worked perfectly, Yesterday it started again with the same dc codes. Noticed this time that it was banging all 4 sides of the machine during the wash cycle. after a little research I cleand and relubed the clutch. it would turn CW just fine and dandy CCw it would lock up (like its supposed to ) there was no rust no broken bands nothing wrong with the clutch. so I put it back in. still the same problem with the power dissconntected i manually turned the clutch one way just the drum spun the other way the drum and the rollers so that tell me its not the clutch what could it be
“”Yesterday it started again with the same dc codes. Noticed this time that it was banging all 4 sides of the machine during the wash cycle.””
Can you do a Quick Wash cycle with minimal settings Soil Level and Spin settings with an empty wash basket.
So after water fill if you raise the top of the machine and observe the Wash Basket you should see the tumblers rotating only. I think from your description you may observe the Wash Basket rotating CW and the tumblers rotating…..is that happening in Wash/Agitate cycle?
If that is so it seems to me that the Spinner Shaft Coupler (my name for it) is seized into the Clutch Pulley One-Way Roller Clutches Bearing in the Clutch Mounted One-Way Roller Clutches bearing mounted in the white bearing plate. And or the Upper One-Way Roller Clutches bearing ring if you Series 12 machine does use the Upper Bearing ring. I know the Series 10 and 11 use that upper bearing ring.
Does you Series 12 FAV6800A Clutch Pulley use the Upper One-Way Roller Clutches bearing ring?
Have you used my Clutch Fix post for reference on maintenance and or replacement of the FAV6800A/FAV9800A? In that post I have a comment labeled “”Let’s demystify dC and uC error codes plaguing the FAV6800A and the LCD Flavor FAV9800A””
I would drop your Clutch Pulley out and verify that the Spinner Shaft Coupler will rotate CW &CCW in both the Clutch Pulley One-Way Roller Clutches bearing white bearing plate and the Upper bearing ring if you machine does use that upper bearing ring.
If you can let me know the results? I will try to help…..Rich
