Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Maybe the Outer Tub bearings are seized. With the Clutch Pulley removed the wash basket should rotate within the Outer Tub bearings with one finger in CCW and CW direction does it? Was the Clutch Pulley One-Way Roller clutches bearing rusted up severely or only slightly? I'm trying to get a feel for a Tub Seal leak........Rich
"" I followed the directions to replace the clutch, but that didn\'t fix it. "" Was it my post Clutch Fix post? If your FAV6800A used the Upper Bearing One-Way roller clutch bearing ring do you feel on reassembly the parts are seated correctly.
What are the first two digits of you s/n of your machine?

Tips for a great answer:
Motor for the most part is bullet proof has a 10 yr warranty
I would start with front panel removal and see if you can rotate the Clutch Pulley CW the Wash/agitate direction and CCW the Spin direction. Make sure nothing is seized.
It could be an issue with the Control Board or the Motor Controller. I have working spares for all and that makes troubleshooting easier.
If you decide to troubleshoot further and try a Control Board swap (in the console) or a Motor Controller swap I would buy parts from a supplier that will allow you to return the part for refund with no questions asked.
Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" a forum where I help owners of the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines.
This is a sticky on a DIY forum at the 5th post down you can link to the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual. You can post in that forum in the Maytag washer forum for additional help. You will find a link to parts supplier.
I link you to a post on this forum where I was working with an owner who was troubleshooting issues and started throwing a LR error code. He ended up replacing both the Motor Control Board, my 1st suggestion and that did not resolve the issue. A Control Board swap in the Console resolved the issue. Maytag Neptune Top Load FAV6800AWW -- tub/motor will not spin ... I won't troubleshoot any further on this forum it's just difficult for me. Can't edit, search post and sometimes pics don't attach. There are better DIY forums out there for working on the FAV6800A/FAV9800A......just mu opinion.
Your machine more than likely is ready for an Tub Seal replacement.....Google this FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement Another forum I help owners with FAV6800A/FAV9800A machine issues........good luck.

Open the washer lid and see if you can rotate the wash basket CCW this is the Spin direction.
The wash basket should not rotate CW. If the the wash basket will not rotate CCW then I feel the One-Way Roller Clutch bearing is seized. If you place the washer cycle in a Spin Only cycle I believe you may see the same fail process with no error code.
If you want to DIY the fix Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW. That will take you to a FAV6800A Sticky.
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.
I feel you will find that the Clutch has failed due to a leaky Tub Seal. A replacement Clutch Pulley will more than likley get you back in service. Once you have the Service Manual you can pull the front cover off drop the Clutch Pulley out and inspect.
I won't offer any more help on this site it is just to difficult to work issues. You can see by past ratings I know the machine and have helped owners. If you are not the DIY type then callin in a Service Repair will cost $65 to $90 range and more than likely they will not have a clue. Go thru the FAV6800A forum here and search the post. i.e. this is typical repair service result for support........ http://www.fixya.com/support/t8683813-6_year_old_maytag_neptune_tl_washer_just
Not hammering service people, most just don't have the hands on knowledge to diagnose machine issues. Once you know the fail point anyone that has very basic mechanical skill sets can repiar the machine. Go to the forum that has the Sticky and open up an issue in the Maytag washer part of that forum and I will help. I scan the forum a few times a day. If you are not into a DIY fix just disregard this post.
