Question about Maytag MAH6700AWW Neptune Front-Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag neptune MAH8700AWW washer will not complete the spin cycle. It spins both directions but never goes past 6 minutes on the display. Eventually you get the "DC" error. It does this with or without clothes

    I found out how to put it in the Service mode and performed the Spin test to which the speed never gets higher than 200RPM. I also bought a pdf service manual online and it says you get the dc error when the spin speed doesn't get above 400rpm. Anyone know what to look for?

If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.

    I do not believe there is a clutch on the Neptune MAH8700AWW front loader washer. To me it appears to be an induction AC motor/ AC Drive directly driving the drum. This thing appears to be a variable frequency drive (part of the control board).

My washer gets to 26 minutes on a cycle and doesnt move past this it keeps turn in on but doesnt move forward to rinse ans spin what do I do?


Classic failure of the Tub Seal and the Upper Bearing ring is seized preventing the machine from completing the Spin Cycle. Put the washer in a Spin Only cycle and see if it does the same thing.

If so and you want to DIY the fix Google this text..... sorry no direct link ""Neptune TL bearing issues I think??? ""

See if this post is your issue........I bet it is. After reading thru the post and if you want to DIY the fix I will help you at that forum.

MAYTAG NEPTUNE FRT LD WASHER MAH8700AWW,NOT COMPLETELY THE SPINNING/DRAINING CYCLE,LEAVING CLOTHES VERY WET,WE SELECT SPIN CYCLE ALONE FOR EST. 9 MIN., THEN DRY, NEED A FIX - HAVE ONE ?


Check that the pump is operating properly. hold the drain hose over a bucket during pump/spin make sure its a reasonable output from the pump..If not remove and clean your filter, then readdress problem as before, if still no cure then check the pump blades are free.....If all is well and pumping okay then spin should be fine providing the motor is okay......Good Luck.....

Maytag Nuptune... when it reaches the spin cycle, it spins, reverses direction spins , then stops. I push the start button and once again it goes through the one spin and reverse and stops again


""when it reaches the spin cycle, it spins, reverses direction spins""

So I understand do you have the washer top raised to view this action? The wash basket rotates one rotation or are you talking about the tumblers?

If you raise the washer lid and rotate the wash basket CCW the Spin direction will it rotate CCW with very little effort?

Any dC or UC error code on fail to Spin?

If you do Spin Only Cycle do you have the same results.

I would enter Service Mode and do the Quick Spin test on page 14 of the Service Manual and see what the results are.

Maytag neptune FAV6800AWW top load washer gets to 32 minutes left and goes no further. It starts to cycle for about 5 seconds and stops for about 35 seconds... over and over and over


Is the machine in Spin Cycle when this is happening? What part of the washer selected cycle does the Cycle Status LED say the machine cycle is in.
If it’s in the Spin Cycle I think you have a clutch issue. Do you take any error codes to the LED console display such as dC or uC?
If you stop the machine in that cycle and do a Spin Only cycle will it complete?
Do you want to DIY the fix? Let me know and I will try to help…..Rich

Maytag neptune tl makes grinding sound and stops at 33 minutes in normal mode and at 24 minutes in quick wash mode



Hello djlampl,

With the lowest spin cycle setting I enter spin cycle in Quick Wash around the 21 minute mark. But first question is do you hear the grinding noise with the tumblers rotating during the wash/agitate cycle?

If you start a spin only cycle do you hear the grinding noise?

Does the washer error code out with an error code to the display? Codes such as dC, uC, Lr?, I assume the machine type is a FAV6800AW is that correct?

Any additional info will help in troubleshooting…..Rich

Assuming the machine type is a FAV6800A/FAV9800A here are some handy links;

My Maytag Neptune fnt loader Model# MAH8700AWW Ser# 12227145GR


I have the same problem. The technician seems to think it could be the water is not emptying during cycles. It keeps adding water as the cycles continue and therefore over flowing the tube when it spin. He thinks it could be a water level sensor. Not sure at this point.
