Spotted similar issue posted earlier, This washer will go through cycle just fine until the spin cycle where it will just seemingly atteempt a spin but just gives up an cycles itself to a finish with clothes still sopping wet.
I checked the brushes and removed the belt and the motor span at high speed. I refitted the belt and ran the cycle with no load, it had a good spin cycle. As soon as I put in a small load it was back to not spinning again.
I suspect the motor..... it is two years old..... is it worth replacing the motor ??
This machine has given a lot of problems from day one with clothes jamming, blocked drain pump etc.
We had a similar Zanussi previous to this for 20 years and all I replaced was one drain pump and a set of main bearings so as the saying goes "they don't make things like they used too"
1st of all is there a spin cancel buuton on this machine and has it been activated, or is there a spin speed selector knob and has it been turned down...is inner drum easily turned by hand.if it is ok then belt tension could be suspect (tighten)im sure there is an out of load balance detection circuit on the main circuit board....also is it draining ok because it wont spin until it cant dectect low or no water prior to final spin.....also if it has a programme dial the select a spin programme on another section of selector dial.........hope this is of some help...

It sounds like the Outer Bearings are going due to a leaky Tub Seal. Bothe can be repaired and have done on this site. This site has no way to reference past post to machine issues.
I have helped owners of theFAV6800A and FAV9800A machines here but I prefer a tru DIY site.
I no longer post on this site no way to post a Sticky for machine issues.
If you want to DIY the repair Google this phrase ""Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"""Read the post Part 1; DC or UC unbalance error codes in Spin Cycle what is causing this issue?Part 2 for the fix action.
Post your issue in the repair forum not in the Sticky. Please include your Model Number i.e. FAV6800A or FAV9800A and I will help you.
You have a Series 10 machine 1st two digits of your s/n. Seems like you have the Service Manual or troubleshooting guide.....can't get that from Servicematters any more I feel you have some drive system binding. I helped a owner on another forum similar problem.Google this "Neptune TL Spinning Issue Will Not Proceed". Did a lot of up front testing in the end he ended up replaceing the Outer Tub Bearings, the Clutch Pulley. Start by opening the washer lid and see if you can rotate the wash basket with one finger in the CCW Spin direction.There should be only slight resistance to rotate the wash basket CCW.During the 1st water fill of the wash basket the Control Board will spin the wash Basket slow rpm you can enter Service Mode and observe the rpm on the LED console. Next start a Quick Spin test and note the highest RPM range the machine will spin up to.Looking for Outer Tub Bearing resistance. I would suggest another DIY forum to work thru this issue if you are going to DIY.This forum is hit and miss we posting pics and e-mail notification for support......Rich
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
Thank you my machine model number.The reason I ask is so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A issues in this forum.This forum doesn’t ask for machine model number and serial number.Here we go.
Does your machine seem to take longer than normal to fill with water?
Does the machine increase the time during the Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle?
Are there any error codes to the LED display such as dC or uC?
Do you want to work toward a DIY fix?If not maybe we can get a solid feel for the issue that will help you in the decision process to bring in a repair company or replace.
So I can better understand the issue can you start a Quick Wash cycle with Soil and Spin settings set to lowest setting and if you could place a couple of bath towels in the wash basket for a load.
I want to see if the machine will go thru the Wash, Rinse and Spin cycle within the 27 to 29 min time of a Quick Wash cycle.I want to see if the machine is increasing Washer Cycle time in the Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle.
You should enter the Rinse Cycle at the 20 min mark on the LED display.
You should enter the Spin Cycle at the 10 min mark on the LED display.
Watch the cycle and see if you have similar times as I do.Let me know if the washer has any off balance issues as it enters into the Spin Cycle…..Rich
The machine needs to cut you a break; “”i have a maytag neptune TL and there are several things wrong with it...1. I can't wash small loads it will stop at the spin cycle and flash dc”” This issue is a clutch issue see this post to DIY the repair. “”it will wash fine on regular loads until it comes to spin cycle again and it will stop and flash nf”” This one is a little confusing the “nf” error is a No water fill error code.Check these two post for support regarding water inlet restriction or valve not opening properly. nf postnf post 2 “”my fabric softener dispenser will not let the softener out neither will the bleach dispenser”” See this fabric softer post for support.The fabric softener dispenser may be clogged or the water dispenser valves feeding both dispensers may not be operating properly.The Service Manual on page 16 “Board Output Test” will give you support to turn on the Fabric Softener Valve and Bleach valve.See if you hear the valves operate in Service Mode” My method may seem a little confusion for viewing water flow to the dispensers.This issue could be associated to the nf error you are receiving, restricted water flow (inlet screen clog) or cold water valve not working properly. Post back for any questions or possible support I can offer.I’m an owner like you not a repair person but I’m very comfortable working on this machine.Rich
Nightshade, in most cases, no spin, no drain is a lid switch problem. If you advance the timer to the spin position does it spin? If the machine is agitating you can rule out the coupler. If you are sure that it is not a lid switch problem, then you are probably looking at a bad timer....Catriver..post back.
