    I already replaced the tub sensor. I tried even a small load last night and the washer stopped with 30 minutes left in the cycle displaying the DC code. The washer also has a ticking sound coming from the bottom center of the machine.

There have been problems with the motor wire harness connector on these washers. The problems are either a loose or bent terminal in the molex connector.
Unplug the connector and tug on each wire. If a wire comes loose from the plug, bend the locking tab up. If a locking tab is not properly seated in the plug connector, the terminals will not fully engage as the connector is plugged into the motor.
Another manifestation of this problem is that one of the terminals may be bent. Inspect the terminals on the motor side of the connector. Straighten any bent terminals if they exist. Recheck the harness side of the terminal block if any bent terminals are found. Bent terminals can indicate a problem with the locking tab inside the plug.

If you are unsure how to go about doing this, please consult a repair guy.

    Check the water lines as well. Sometimes it could be a clogged screen issue as well, that causes water flow problems and generates this error.

It is either the sensor or the clutch, try replacing tub sensor if it didn't work, then its your clutch

What does dc mean on the display?


The most likely cause of a DC error code on a Neptune is the clutch assembly.

Stops at 11 minutes left in cycle. will not spin or drain


Google ""Maytag Neptune load unbalance""


Read thru the post. I feel you have a Clutch malfunction even though you may not be see DC ot UC unbalance errors to the Console.


I'm seeing that around the 5 to 6 yr mark it's time for a Tub Seal replacement and possible Outer Tub and Spinner Support bearings should be replaced on the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines. It's not too bad for most DIY owners.

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

Spin Cycle has stopped at 13 minutes Code dc.


If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual.

If it one of those machines I suspect a possible clutch malfunction. See this post for what is involved to do clutch maintenance or replacement.

Do you have any error codes to the display if it a FAV6800A such as dC or uC unbalance codes. Is the wash tub banging around on Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle? ……Rich

Neptune TL, stops at the 11 minutes to end and will not go past, I have to shut off, hit spin cycle to finish load


Hello krabby64

Is your FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW failing with error codes dc or UC or both to the Console display? If you are I believe you are experiencing a clutch malfunction with your machine. Take a look at this post and see if your problem is similar.  

If you have error codes to the display when the machine fails in the last 11 minutes (I believe start od spin cycle) can you let us know what those error codes are?

Receive code "dc"...water will not drain and tub will not spin properly


This is my failure resolution with DC/UC error codes a common problem with this model;

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley hub to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 3.5 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!

I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium and heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.

I found a Service repair manual on this site search for this; FAV6800 Manual
