You need the Service Manual;

Here are some handy links; The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

From Page 14 of the Service Manual;
Enter / Exit Service Mode To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys (simultaneously) for three seconds or until the control beeps.

Maytag Neptune FAV6800 model - We had major water damage to our basement due to the water over filling the tub. Would you be able to provide guidance on what the pressure switch looks like and how to...


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.""
