The water level sensor hose may be blocked. This is a thick hose that taps down into a thin tube which connects to the water level sensor in the control space. Check the hose for blocks. Check the sensor is working by blowing into it and listening for clicking sound indicating switches inside are working. Test resistance across the sensor while blowing into it to make sure. But first check the hose, this most often causes this particular fault.

My Maytag FAV6800 washer hungs part way through a cycle the timer on the front display stops at about 23 on the quick wash cycle.

Sounds like a pressure switch/ chamber issue. Check the tube is clear to the drum. (Assuming front loader?)

I can't post pics at this site got to this site

Post your issue and I will help you.

Do you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A SM? If not I can help you with that. We will need to go into Service Mode and look to see if the pressure switch transitions take place during the water fill cycle.

I assume if you pull the 120VAC power cord or hit the off key pad the machine will close the Water Inlet solenoids and stop the wash tub fill........Rich

I need an instruction manual for Maytag topload washer Neptune TL

Get the Service Manual this will help you diagnose issues with this washer.  I found a Service repair manual on this site search for this; FAV6800 Manual.  Check the postings and you will find a URL to the manual.

From another member a step by step to dump water from machine in diag mode  ""One other thing I learned for those of you who don’t want to bail out the water in the tub. If you want to have the machine drain the excess water without bailing this should work. Turn the machine off and make sure the "locked door" light goes off. Then hold the "Spin" and "Enviro Plus" buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. "00" should then show up on the display. Then hit the "Delicate" button, then the “Pre-soak” button. This should activate the pump and get all the water out. Once the water is out hit the off button. You then may want to try the Spin cycle alone. These directions can be found on the Troubleshooting Manual found folded up behind the rear panel of the machine where the main electrical circuit board is located.""

Look in your Use and Care guide and if your unit has a Control Lock feature, it will explain how to turn it off. If you dont ahve your guide, you can always call Maytag and have them look it up for you.
