Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
The DC code that comes up is just saying that the load is "off balance" to resolve this, open the washer and redistribute the last and restart.
The bang fron the tub that you hear is just from the load being off balance. Generally it's just the weight difference on the tub when the washer stops spinning. This is normal for an off balance load and is nothing to be overly concerned about.
If you are getting the DC code a lot, take a look at the types of loads you are washing. Are they small? Is it a mix of small and large items? Is it a few large items? This may be the answer to why you are having off balance issues. The Neptune is a very large washer, and can get off balance very easily with smaller loads. Try making loads larger or if you are washing for example sheets, try washing them in 3's. This will make it easier for the washer to balance the load.
Good luck! Please let me know if this was helpful!

If your machine is FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW the dc/UC errors are caused by a clutch malfunction. Your machine is shutting down with those errors so your Tub Displacement Sensor is working as designed. Fix the Clutch malfunction and you can wash a single sock or a load of blue genes and you will not take the dc or UC unbalance errors. See this post for the fix.

Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down.
Here ya go.....in this post I discuss the issue related to unbalance error codes DC and UC;
Your FAV6800A or FAV9800A is going off balance with DC or UC unbalance error codes during spin cycle and you see/hear the wash tub banging around at the start of Spin Cycle of the wash cycle or a Spin Only cycle. If this is the condition the TDS (Tub Displacement Sensor) is working as designed and signaling the Control Board properly of an unbalance wash load condition.
The Control Board receives a varying D.C . Voltage from the TDS sensor and if the out of range D.C. Voltage limit continues the Control Board will halt the Spin Cycle and try to redistribute the wash load. If you are interested I will show you how to monitor the TDS input to the Control Board with a DVM.
The Control Board then starts the Spin Cycle again. If the wash tub/basket out of balance condition continues the Control Board will attempt another redistribute of the wash load. After several attempts (4 to 5 I believe) the Control Board will shut down the Spin Cycle and send a error code DC or UC to the LED display of the FAV6800A, my machine type. And I believe a text statement to the LCD screen of the FAV9800A machine i.e. something like "Unbalance Condition" I'm not sure what the text message is.
