Try inserting a putty knife perhaps 3 or 4 inches in from either side, bewtwewn the gaps wherew the main top meets the front panel, there are relaese tabs that when depressed the top will lift up, theres then 2 5/16 sdcrees attaching hte front panel to machine. there should also be a service manula taped inside there as well

Most washing machines have two little tabs at the base of the machine where the front panel meets the adjusting legs. Push down with your thumb ( or putty knife) and then pull the front panel towards you. It then should unclip. Do this on both sides. Pull the front panel out @ a 45 Degree angle and it should then just drop out.

How do i get to the drainage hose in back of neptune FAV6800AWW?


You have to remove the front cover from the machine.

Do you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual?

I'll see if this site can let me post a pic of the wash tub removed. In this pic you can see the Drain Pump/Pressure Switch and drain line on the right side of the machine. There is no side or rear panel access.

What is the issue? Won't drain?

I would suggest you Google "Maytag neptune FAV6800aww wont spin" this forum has a Sticky for Maytag FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines and you can get the Service Manual from this site. I feel it's a better DIY site.

OK let me see if I can attach a pic;

Lr code went into service mode but wont respond to commands model #fav6800aww


Tom,

The LR error code can be a tough one to troubleshoot but I'll see what if any help I can be.

The LR code stands for Locked Rotor.
If you Power Cycle the 120VAC to the machine will the error code clear?
What cycle was the machine in when you took the error code wash, spin?
If you remove the front panel and with the 120VAC power cord removed from the service outlet can you rotate the Clutch Pulley CCW (Spin direction) or CW (wash/agitate) direction.
Sounds like you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual.

Leaking water on spincycle


I have the same problem with my washer. The problem just began a few weeks ago. It is splashing out the front left corner of the tub and running down the inside of washer and then leaking out the bottom of the frame. It is just enough water to be annoying. The washer is about 6 years old.
Model: FAV6800AWW
Serial: 11277017EG

Any ideas??? Help!

At the end of cycle washer will not stop filling and overflows. maytag neptune fav6800aww


There is a diaphram switch located in the machine at the bottom right in the rear. When you remove the front panel it will be all the way back on the right. It senses the water level. It has three levels it detects. I had a problem with mine filling too much. That should take care of your problem.

Water does not drain from Maytag FAV6800AWW washing machine


Hello jediller,
Your drain pump is 120VAC operated turned on by the control board.
Go to page 16 of the SM and you can turn on the drain pump in Service Mode with the presoak key. Press it again to turn off the drain pump or hit the off button.
Link to some documemtation that may help you thru yout issue. The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point. Remove the front panel see page 41. You will need a 5/16 nut driver or 5/16 ¼ socket on an extension to remove front panel.
I’m a owner DYI’er like you. What type of issue are you experiencing? Let me know if I can help.
