Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Maytag FAV6800AW won't spin. COuld this be the clutch? Washer cycle counts down to 37 minutes, won't go into rinse cycle.
Yes most times it is a Clutch malfunction . Is the machine failing with “dc” and or “UC” unbalance error codes in spin cycle? If you are you may have a Clutch malfunction or Tub Displacement Sensor failure more likely a Clutch issue.
You can do a quick TDS sensor check thru the lid just follow this from the Service Manual. If you machine will pass the TDS check the next step would be to remove the clutch from the machine and inspect as I describe in this post.
Tub Displacement Sensor check from the SM slightly modified;
Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check. This test is done with the washer lid raised see page 19 for the details.
It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is in the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.
a. Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”
b. Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.
c. Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).
d. Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).
e. Press Hand Wash.
f. Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).
If you get these results your TDS sensor should be just fine. Time to look at a clutch repair/replacement. Let me know if you need help…. Rich aka dh1200s
