SOURCE: CLOTHES STUCK IN WASHER!!!!!!

If you open up the dispenser tray on the top of the machine, there should be a red cord. This is the manual release for the door. All you have to do is pull this cord and the door opens. If the cord is missing, you will need to remove the top of the washer to get to the latch. I hope this helps you.

With this post I’m attempting to enhance the troubleshooting process regarding dc/UC errors in Spin Cycle associated with the FAV6800A machine. The troubleshooting steps are more to help DIY owners but it could be good info. for other owners to pass along to their appliance repair service if you go forward with a repair. I’m a DIY’er who refused to junk my machine as long as parts cost did not trigger a replacement decision and I have some basic mechanical skills. What I have learned about these fail codes, dc/UC in Spin Cycle is…. this is a chronic failure condition associated with the FAV6800A series machine (no brainer per numerous posts in this forum) and I feel that most of the time these codes are associated with a clutch malfunction.
The troubleshooting guide packed in the console of your machine makes reference to this issue in the Will Not Spin section of the guide and states to replace the clutch. I re-lubed my clutch with WD-40 and I have been working with 30+ loads of varying size with no Spin Cycle errors since early December 08. I and two other DIY forum members found this issue to be a maintenance issue with the clutch, no out of pocket cost for me and I’m sure under $5 for the other two forum members, I had a can of WD-40 in the house. See the links I have attached within this post. There is a description of the clutch removal I did in those posts. I hope this works for others; I’m sure many of these machines head to the curb for bulk trash pickup. Maybe you can extend the service life of your $1K machine if this proves to be a clutch re-lube fix for this issue. Shame on Maytag for not placing a quality sealed bearing in the clutch…. my opinion.
1. 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. Raise the top of the machine to observe the wash basket and tumbler action described in step 2...

2. With the top raised start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket, observe the wash basket it will begin to rotate CCW. Watch the tumblers, they should not rotate in spin cycle (maybe ½ turn at the start of spin cycle and that’s all). If the tumblers rotate while the wash basket is rotating you have a clutch malfunction and the Spin Cycle will fail with dc/UC errors. If this is not the situation move on to step 3. I need to post step 3 and the rest of this post in a comment.

Is your door lock light on when machine is in use? I am having the same issue as you and I believe it is because my door is not locking during use.

My Maytag topload washer is not completely rinsing the clothes completely in the rinse cycle. For example, I have to only place three bath towels at a time to rinse.


That may just be a worn out belt. It's pretty easy to replace. Tip back the washerthemobilian_1410.jpg
With belt off turn the pump. It should be pretty easy to turn by hand. Finally if the belt is good and pump is fine then you might have a bad main drive pulley or a badly worn one. The pulley releases the tub for spin. If the pulley is worn out it won't release well and the clothes will be soggy.

Maytag Auto Load-Sensing Washer does not fill with enough water to wash the clothes. How do I get around this?


Did you ever get an answer - all I see are ads :-(

We have the same problem. Not enough water to rinse - even with extra rinse selected. Even our laundry comes out the color of the laundry detergent. I'm sure this is a result of government regulations to reduce water usage. We'll contact Maytag tomorrow.

My Maytag washer has no spinning mode while in rinsing cycle. I checked the voltage-it's about 118 to 130 volt consistantly. Please advise.


Our Maytag Atlantis strted having some unusual operation problems and failure to produce clean clothes about 3 - 4 yeras after purchase. The transmission was replaced, no parts costs, reasonable service call labor costs. Has worked good ever since, another 3 years or so.
Call Maytag and they will discuss with you.

Washer is not rinsing and spinning


Check for loose connections at pressure switch,
motor, tach harness, motor control and machine
control board terminal connections. These are common problems that will induce this issue with your washer.

Maytag neptune won;t rinse


Check latch mechanism for alignment. Often operation of machine loosens latch mechanism causing internal switch for "door open (or ajar)" preventing rinse or spin cycle. Opening and closing door presses latch mechanism closing internal switch allowing for continue processing to rinse or spin cycles.

Maytag Washer Not Completely Rinsing


If your washer has an extra rinse button try pushing it. My Maytag refuses to wash unless that button is pushed, so in your case it may not be completing the rinse cycle correctly.

Just a suggestion.
