Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Hey marcbowlby03 first thank you for the model number .......other forum members no model number = no help….. I do this for no $ and my time is important to me.
I’m and owner like you not a repair person but I know the machine fairly well and have three machines a Series 10, 15 and 17 and have worked many issues.
OK if you are the DIY type and want to save your $1K machine let’s do a little more troubleshooting.
I assume no error code like dC or uC to the Console with the fail to spin issue correct?
With that same wash load what happens if you do a Spin Only Cycle?
When you do the Spin Only cycle load release the washer top from the washer base as described in the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual on page 33 of the SM called out as Top Cover Removal.
Only raise the washer top from the base enough to observe if the wash basket is rotating CCW and the Tumblers are not rotating (1/2 turn or less then stop as you begin the Spin Cycle.
I’m going to point you to this post Clutch Fix for some additional support don’t get hung up on that post we may need reference it later.
I’ll help you get back in service if you want to DIY and can handle the down time…...Rich

You have to clean your drum regularly with running water, especially if you are using the unit to wash very dirty clothes.

If you machine is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A don't worry about the last two letters of the model number.
Google this; Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW
This is a DIY Appliance repair forum and you can get the Service Manual and repair support at that site..
In the Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down you will find a link to the Service Manual. You absolutely need the Service Manual to DIY issues with the machine. It's not the best SM but will get you started. I also have repair post in that sticky to help with the most common issues that I have helped owners with. I'm an owner of a FAV6800AWW top load machine.
If you need help post in the Maytag/Magic Chef/Admiral/Jenn-Air forum with your issue and we will try to help.

I no longer post on this site no way to post a Sticky for machine issues.
If you want to DIY the repair Google this phrase ""Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW""" Read the post Part 1; DC or UC unbalance error codes in Spin Cycle what is causing this issue? Part 2 for the fix action.
Post your issue in the repair forum not in the Sticky. Please include your Model Number i.e. FAV6800A or FAV9800A and I will help you.
