Hello, My Maytag FAV6800AWW wont drain or go through the spin cycle. What is more than likely the culprit, and is it something I can fix myself? I am fairly mechanical but beofre I start taking it apart I'd like to know what Im getting myself into. Also would there be any diagrams or video of how to do the repairs? Thank you in advance.

How do i get to the drainage hose in back of neptune FAV6800AWW?

You have to remove the front cover from the machine.

Do you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual?

I'll see if this site can let me post a pic of the wash tub removed. In this pic you can see the Drain Pump/Pressure Switch and drain line on the right side of the machine. There is no side or rear panel access.

What is the issue? Won't drain?

I would suggest you Google "Maytag neptune FAV6800aww wont spin" this forum has a Sticky for Maytag FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines and you can get the Service Manual from this site. I feel it's a better DIY site.

OK let me see if I can attach a pic;

Washer will spin but won't drain automatically

are you sure it spins? usually something is in the pump like a sock. You could remove the front and take the hose off the pump to see if its clear. It also sounds like it could be the lid switch. if you have to close it make sure you hear a clicking noise from the lid switch.

POS Neptune Washer

What is the problem? My FAV6800AWW had DC/UC error code problem in spin mode. Lubed the clutch needle bearings and this fixed the issue. This was fairly easy fix, just very tight working area. If this is your problem I will give you the details. Washer was purchased in 7/05 this is a common issue with this washer.

Service manual is recommended for us rookies. I found one on line or I believe it can be requested from Maytag.
