Unplug dryer
front panel screws are mounted in the bend at the bottom of the panel, hidden from easy view by the bend.

  • may be torx secure screws, either cut a slot in the screw head and use a flat screwdriver, or buy a torx secure #2 bit at the local alltools
swing front panel up and forward, unplug door switch wires, set panel aside,
examine roller bearings,
drum felts,
belt tensioner
for wear

takes longer to type than to open the dryer
good luck

When it fills with water and begains the wash cycle it makes loud grinding noise and dose not rotate properly


you might have something in the pump. you will need to remove the bottom panel, to do this you will need a putty knife. place the putty knife between the front panel and top panel. place it just inside the coners about 3 inches. press the tabs and the top will lift off. you will then need a 5/16ths nut driver to remove the 2 screws just inside the lip. then the front panel will fall forward from the top. you will then have access to the inside of the unit. put the unit in a wash cycle and watch and listen to where the noise is comming from. you will then know what could be wrong with your unit. Let me know if you have other questoins.

Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Loading Washer Noise


Hello gwatson01,
Wondering if you could rate my clarification request as a solution? I joined this forum as a owner DIY’er to help other owners. The machine is just too expensive to junk and as you found fairly easy to work on. As a forum member as you I receive no compensation for my support to other owners. Thank you in advance for your support. Rich
My solution;
I’m an owner/DIY’er of the machine. Please take a look at this post and see if your mechanical noise may be coming from underneath the tumblers, maybe some coins grinding around under the tumblers. If you think it is take a look at the service manual link in that post. It will take you thru the tumbler removal process, see if you feel comfortable with the process, the manual does not call out a #20 Torx driver is required to remove the tumbler.
If you think the grinding noise is very metallic and not muffled by a tub of water the grinding noise may be coming from the transmission/clutch area and removing the machine front vertical cover will be necessary to better sound isolate the suspect area of the machine. Do you feel OK to remove the front panel? If so see this post.
The 1st link I sent you to shows that this owner had issues after the coin removal. I would also like you try a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Can you let me know if that cycle runs with no noise? We can’t totally rule out an issue with the clutch/transmission components with the info supplied so far. To help you remotely diagnose this issue detail information is needed. Let’s try to sound isolate the grinding noise source location. Follow all safety rules in the Service Manual. If you don’t feel comfortable to proceed I would recommend you call in a qualified FAV6800AWW repair service for support.

Loud noise -- water pump??


Yes you definately need a new pump assembly part number 21001906 $59.95. That is a maytag part number and it is a very common repair. The new pump is a revised design and will look different but will mount the same. Axcess through front panel.
