Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Trouble code on an appliance, how to repair

I recently purchased a used Maytag Set as listed above because the previous owner,said the washing machine stopped before completeing its cycle.When I hooked it up it ran the cycle until the sud signal appeared then it entered the sud routine for a period of time then when I thought it would start to spin and complete the cycle the F-21 code appeared I followed the check described in the troubleshooting portion of the owners manual ,to no avail therefore the suggested step was to get help so here we are.IT seems to be a good appliance and Ive had no trouble with the matching dryer so any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated Im on a fixed income ,so my budget is narrow thank you very much.

Amana appliances are now produced by Whirlpool Corp., who purchased Maytag Corp., (previous owner of brand). Whirlpool maintains the previous Maytag parts and repair call center in Cleveland, Tenn. The phone number in your operating manual, even if purchased prior to Whirlpool takeover, for repair should still be good.

My Maytag Neptune TL ( purchased in 2005) is grinding during the wash cycle only. Spin cycle is quiet. Once the entire wash/rinse spin completed I opened the washer to retrieve the load and found a piece...


I'm an owner of three FAV6800A machines and I'll respond to help because you want to roll up your sleeves and try to save your $1K machine.

1st No direct links Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW

In the Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down you will find a link to the Service Manual. You absolutely need the Service Manual to DIY issues with the machine. It's not the best SM but will get you started. I also have repair post in that sticky to help with the most common issues that I have helped owners with.

Post in that forum your machine Model which I assume is an FAV6800A (LED Console) or FAV9800A (LCD Console)

Include the first two digits of you machines model number. That is the series of your machine.

Give a description of the issue as you did here. I hope the grinding is during wash/agitate if so it may be something as simple as tumbler removal to clear out debris. If the grinding is in Spin Cycle it could be a bit more work like Outer Tub bearing failure.

The Forum in my opinion is geared more toward the DIY owner as I am and as you sound. The forum is free like this and my support is free..........Good Luck D*ick

My fabric softener dispenser won't empty or my bleach dispenser won't empty


I feel the the dispenser valves are not working properly. I have post somewhere in this forum to troublshoot using Service Mode to see if the Dispenser Valves will open.

I'm a DIY owner and know the machine well. If you want repair I suggest moving to a true DIY forum and I will help.

Google this;

Appliance Repair Forums > Appliance Repair Talk > Washers > Maytag/Magic Chef/Admiral/Jenn-Air
Then repost issue if you want to DIY. If elect to call in a repair service give the Service Company the Model Number and they may ask for the Serial Number. That info is listed on the rear right hand side of the console.......D*ick

Maytag neptune washing machine is leaking water during wash cycle

If your going to DIY the fix or at least ID the leak source you will need to remove the fron cover off the machine. Power down the machine and follow the front panel removal process in this Clutch fix post.

If you need additional help Google "washer repair forum" and choose any of the Appliance Repair forums that you hit. Post your model number and I will help you out. If you don't have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual I can help you with that at a true DIY Appliance Repair Forum.

I have stopped supporting this forum to many issue with posting support pics and directions at this site. This site it is not a in my opinion a true DIY site for owners.........Rich

I need instructions on how to change the tub seal.


Do you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual?

I need the first two digits of the s/n of your FAV6800A or FAV9800A it will be 10 thru 17?

That tells us if the machine will use the Upper One-Roller Clutch bearing.

I have done a Tub Seal and Outer Tub bearing replacement on a FAV6800A Series 10 first two digits of the s/n and the process is the same for all the machines series 10 thru 17.

You sound like you want to save your $1K machine and I will try to help as a knowledgeable owner.

I no longer post support on this forum it is to difficult to find my previous support topics. I would suggest you Google this topic "Maytag Neptune load unbalance" join that forum and post a topic in the washer repair forum something like FAV6800A Tub Seal replacement and I will respond.

I post under dh1200s on that DIY appliance repair forum.

Maytag Neptune fav6800aw fills then stops with clicking then Lr

Hi Renee

I’m and owner and my wife likes the machine also…. except for the tangel problem :). Sorry to hear of your issue. This won’t be an easy DIY fix unless you have the following items I indicate in my fail point list. The three fail points that I suspect with a line impulse hit that could cause the Lr error code “Locked Rotor”

1. Failure of the Control Board. Motor control assy w/brkt (series 10) Sears, 25001079 ebay listing. 25001079 Appliance Zone
2. Failure of the Motor Control Board. 25001217 Sears, 25001217 AZ, ebay listing 25001217
3. Motor (but not likely). 25001034 Sears , 25001034 AZ , ebay listing 25001034
Some parts may have substitution part numbers.

If you elect to DIY here is some info you will need.

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
Did you have outlet surge protection at the washer outlet? If not I highly recommend surge protection on any electrical/electronic device that may be hit by a line surge. I’m out in the country and strikes zippe the trees, lost a well pump, Control Board in the electric range in the past. I Also had grounding issues that I took care three years ago when I relocated my main service entrance. I’m in the 19344 area and have a complete set of know good parts. If you were nearby I would offer to help. If you elect to repair I would have the service company bring at a minimum the first two parts. Call Maytag and find out if the control board is still under warranty. Contact info on the web and in the Service Manual. I got them to send me one.

Washer does not comply

I feel you have a problem with the Control Board in your FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW. If you are the original owner the Control Board is under warranty for 5 years from date of purchase. It would require a Service Repair call to get the board replaced under warranty. I pushed them hard and got them to send me the board. Here are some links for reference. The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

The Service Manual has on page 98 has warranty info and Maytag contact info. The Control Board p/n for all series FAV6800AW is 25001217 this is a Ebay listing, I get all my spare parts from ebay but you take a chance. Another source Appliance Zone 25001217
Have you had any electrical storm in your area prior to the failure? Have you pulled the 120VAC on the machine and re-powered back up.
Good luck and post back if you have questions.
