I'm an owner as you and do all my repair on multiple FAV6800A machines.
I don't feel from the info supplied that you have a drain pump/drain line issue because you do not take a "ND" error code for "no drain" during the wash cycle.....the wash cycle completes. I don't believe you have a stuck slightly open water inlet valve in the machine because I feel the machine would eventually over fill and flood the laundry area in time.
Is there any standing water in the wash basket when you remove the wet clothes after the final Spin Cycle?
I would place the machine in Service Mode and run it thru a Quick Spin Test (with a wet load) and record the fastest RPM speed the wash basket will spin up to.
You need the Service Manual to help you get into Service Mode to do the test. Are you going to DIY or call in repair service?
If you want to run the Quick Spin test I will look for a previous post on this forum where I called out the process steps.
