Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My neptune washer will start and run about half a cycle and it acts like it gets stuck and on one cycle and never shuts off. I put a load of clothes in before I went to bed and next morning the machine still said it had 23 minutes left on the cycle. So it stayed on all night.

What does half a cycle mean are you in Wash cycle, Spin Cycle? What does the Cycle Status LED indicate?

If you think the wash load is in a spin cycle of the wash cycle or rinse cycle place the machine in Spin Only cycle and see if it will complete.

Is there any kind of recall on a Maytay front loading washer, model #MAH6500AWW? I am having problems with mildew in the rubber part and terrible smelling water in the bottom.


The cleaning process for your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer, for example, requires some time and patience. Over time, your washing machine will need to be cleaned. It can develop offensive odors through multiple wash cycles. This makes the washing machine less effective at cleaning the clothes you put into it. Maytag offers some sound advice for cleaning your front-loading washing machine.
  • Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.

  • 2

    Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.

  • 3

    Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.

  • 4

    Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.

  • 5

    Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.

  • 6

    Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.

  • 7

    Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.

  • 8

    Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.


  • ALWAYS LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN WHEN NOT IN USE! This prevents the mold and mildew from forming once you get it cleaned.

    Spin cycle


    it sounds like there is either an obstruction in the pump, or the load is getting off balance during the spin cycle. two things to try, fill the washer with no cloths in it, when it starts to agitate, stop the cycle and put it in drain/spin cycle. the water should be out in under a minute. its hard to see because the door locks, but you can hear a difference in the pump when its out, or after 60 seconds, press cancel and open the lid to check. if the waters out in that time, the pumps ok. then run it through the spin diagnostic with a load of cloths. make sure the cloths are wet, and a normal load you wash. this will check to see if the load is getting off balance, and shutting down during the spin cycle. let me know if you still have the problem. good luck, shane

    Washer won't spin.


    Fortunately boards for most washers are cheap. Rebuilt board= $35 to 100: look online.
    But your washer probably doesn't have a bad board. It sounds more like a motor. Does the mother-in-law like to overload the washer so she can get out of your house faster? If your motor overheats there is a bimetal switch that must cool off before it will run again -kinda sounds like your problem.

    Washer does not remove water in final spin


    If washer hums when it should spin, and the washer will not drain, you may have 2 issues.
    First check that the drain pump, drain hose, and wall drain are free of debris.
    The washer may not spin properly if the drain system is not operable.
    Once you are sure the washer drain pump, drain lines, wall drain, and drain hose is okay, run a test wash.
    If the washer hums but now drains, you fixed one issue.
    If the washer still hums, you may have a bad belt, motor coupler, motor itself, etc...
    Check parts for wear and replace as necessary.I pulled the drain impeller and found a sock from my little guy stuck in there. Fixed!
    check all water outlets to make sure there is nothing blocking the pipes.

    Excessive wobble


    If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
