What are the first to digits of your machines serial number? It will be 10 thru 17.

Did the machine bang around in Spin Cycle during the wash Cycle with the uC error code?

The FAV6800A and it’s sister FAV9800A LCD display version of the machine suffer from a chronic Dry/Rusted One-Way Roller clutch issue. See this Clutch repair post on this forum for clutch maintenance and or replacement and this post on another forum. Read how to check the failure of the One-Way Roller clutches to slip in the CCW/Spin direction at this post.

If you are just a bit handy you can do the maintenance or order a replacement from AZ they have the best price around $56. I will help you every step of the way…..Rich


Couple of links to the Service Manual and Sears Parts Direct for reference.

I’ll paste in how to check the Tub Displacement Sensor. I don’t feel that is the issue but is will give you a chance to go into Service Mode and check thru the lid for proper operation.


Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check. This test is done with the washer lid raised see page 19 of the SM for the details.

It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is in the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.

a. Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

b. Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.

c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

d. Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

e. Press Hand Wash.

f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).

If you get these results your TDS sensor should be just fine and not the cause of dC or uC unbalance errors……fix the clutch and your machine will be

My Maytag FAV6800 will not spin the clothes


Here is a Fix if your machine model is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A failing in Spin Cycle with dC/uC unbalance errors.

Fix the Clutch issue and save your 1$K machine. Here is my Clutch Fix post. You can redistribute the wash load in your FAV6800A or FAV9800A till the cows come one and you will continue error out in Spin Cycle of the wash cycle or a Spin Only Cycle. I explain in this post the fix and how to diagnose the issue to the Clutch Pulley One-Way Roller Clutch bearing.

If you just need Clutch maintenance you could be back in service today. You or someone you know can do this and I will help with any questions…………Rich

Getting dc error code in rinse cycle, 13 min. before being done Have un-pluged and still getting code. Maytag FAV6800 LED washer, 5 years old.


Hello rdberg,

See this post Clutch Fix it has helped a few owners with the dC and uC unbalance errors with the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines. You have a very common problem with a Clutch malfunction. The first part of the post has to do with the nuts and bolts of disassembly and Clutch maintenance or replacement of the Clutch Pulley.

In the last part of the post I go into just how to check the One-Way Rollers clutches to verify that are locking up. If they don’t this results in tumbler movement on Wash Basket spin up and the unbalance errors. If you are handy and have some basic hand tools you can get your machine back in service at low cost.

Post back if you have questions…..Rich

Wont Finish Spinning stops and Flashed DC


If the machine type is a FAV6800A/FAV9800A see this Clutch repair post if you want to DIY. You will find links to the Service Manual and parts info if needed.

You can check out the TDS but I would go right to the Clutch repair post if the machine shuts down in with a error code dC or uC.

That means the TDS is producing analog voltage swings +3.5VDC to 0VDC to the input of the Control Board Conn_P3 pins 10 and 11. Those DC voltage swings are at the design limit of max Wash Tub movement and the Control Board shuts the Spin Cycle down……..so thebTDS is working as designed.

The machine will make several attempts to redistribute the load before error code generation failing with dC or uC error codes.

Post back if you have questions any DIY'er with basic skill sets can do the Cluch maintenance/repair.....Rich

I have an error code uc in the spin cycle what could be causing the problem?


uC = a continuous unbalance condition of the wash load.

Because you are posting in the Fixya Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer forum I’m going to assume your machine type is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A.

For those machine types I feel you are experiencing a clutch malfunction. Can you confirm the machine model number and let me know if you want to try a DIY repair. You only need basic hand tools and skill sets to repair. See this post for what is involved and this a most recent post of a forum members repair for a dC error code condition in Spin Cycle which related to the uC error code in Spin Cycle.

UC code on my Maytag Neptune Washer FAV6800WW


HI. this uc code represents a no spin state of the unit. this is caused by a faulty Motor control assembly. you will need to replace the Motor control assembly. this will fix this issue and, restore the normal actions of the unit.

This Motor control assembly will cost about $219.00.

Wont spin with clothes


Common problem with this model I own it. Sounds like the roller clutch bearings in your machine are seized/rusted up. Do you want to try to DIY the repair? Read thru this post for the details of what is involved. Post back with any questions. Rich

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
