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

If it?s a FAV6800AW or FAV8900AW and you want to DIY a fix take a look at this post and see if you or someone you know has some very basic mechanical skills and can do a clutch replacement or roller clutch bearing re-lube. The dc/UC unbalance errors are a very common failure issue with the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW. A new clutch will cost around $80. This a common issue with the FAV6800AW and FAV9800AW. Don't spend $900 and don't trash your $1000 machine it is a easy fix just at tight work area. Post back after you read the post I link you to and you have any questions. Rich

I’m an Owner like you I own the FAV6800AW and have helped many folks on this and other forums with this issue.
You are experiencing a classic malfunction of the One-Way Roller clutch bearings in the Clutch Pulley assembly. It sounds like you are in the early stages of the issue. I have put together a step by step maintenance process to clean up and re-lube the One-Way Roller clutches in the Clutch Pulley assembly see this post Clutch Fix Post for what’s involved. Look on the right top back of your Console. If you can give me the first two numbers of your serial number i.e. 10, 11,12, tru 17. That will let me know if your machine will use an Upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing ring. Mechanical skill sets to perform Clutch maintenance or replacement are basic, anyone can do this it’s just a tight work area. Your option is to DIY or call in a repair service. I would ballpark the repair cost at around $300 if they know what is wrong and how to fix. DIY the fix it and you may need a a can of WD-40 and Slick 59 One Lube cost around $10 if the One-Way Roller just need to be cleaned up and re-lubed. If the Clutch pulley needs to be replaced I will show you a site where you can purchase for around $60 delivered to the house.
See this most recent post of a forum member who is back in service with my process.
