I think you may have a Control Board issue/failure. I would like to help but everyone I have worked with walks away with the 1st troubleshooting step or two.

If you want to work the issue let me know. Was there any recent storm activity in your area? Do you have surge suppression on the 120VAC outlet the machine is plugged into?

You are not alone…..D*ick

See this Clutch repair post if you want to DIY. Is your Wash tub banging around in Spin Cycle? Do you error out of Spin Cycle with dC or uC error code to the LED Console display? You can check out the TDS but I would go right to the Clutch repair post if the machine shuts down in with a error code dC or uC.

That means the TDS is producing analog voltage swings +3.5VDC to 0VDC to the input of the Control Board Conn_P3 pins 10 and 11. Those DC voltage swings are at the design limit of Wash Tub movement and the Control Board shuts the Spin Cycle down…… TDS is working as designed.

The machine will make several attempts to redistribute the load before the error code generation failing with dC or uC error codes. Please let us know what error coded you display.

I or other knowledge owners/DIY’ers or repair folks can help you. Please other forum members chime in for support.

Don’t get hung up in Front Strut issues or other WAG’s. Fix the Clutch Malfunction and your FAV6800A will be happy.

My control panel lights keep beeping and changing in the spin cycles and continues to beep and go through them before after and during. I shut it off and it comes back on by itelf? Any help?

Could be a Control Board issue, a Console issue or something pulling down the +12VDC supply on the Control Board.

How deep into DIY do you want to get? There is no reset button to fix this issue. Hav you had any electrical storm activity recently?

I have a FAV6800AWC Top Load Maytag Neptune When in spin cycle you cannot keep it balanced, makes a banging soud (loud) and kickes washer off


It sounds like the spin basket rear support is loose. The support is part of the spin basket & does not come separately. This type of repair will more than likely need the spin basket replaced & possibly the outer tub also. It will cost you $200-300 to replace the assembly.

Hope this helps.

Beeping and changing spin cycle


Lets confirm the Machine Model number is it a FAV6800A?

If so I think this could be an issue with the Control Board.

Do you want to some basic troubleshooting like see if the Consol will let you into Service Mode?

If so let me know………Rich

Will not spin when clothes are in the washer

Hope this is not a double reply, I'm having problems with this board. You have the symptoms of a Clutch issue if the machine type is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW. If that is your machine type please see this Post if you want to DIY the fix or share with a repair person. Post back if you have questions
