Question and Answers


Maytag Neptune model#fav6800aww FAV6800AWW Maytag Washer


Thank you for choosing and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your washer is not working properly.

Membrane Pad Test 

While in Service Mode, pressing the 
Presoak key will start a membrane 
switch check that verifies switch 
operation. All the LEDs (except 
Presoak) can be toggled or slewed by pressing the 
key associated with the LED or set of LEDs. Each 
time either set delay arrow is pressed the digits toggle 
between a blank and 8. All keys (including the OFF 
button) must be pressed within 5 minutes for this test 
to pass. “PA” will be displayed for five (5) seconds 
once all keys have been pressed and the test is 
completed. Following 10 seconds of inactivity at any 
point, this test will exit without any display. 
Motor Control Board Output Test 
1. Disconnect power to the washer. 
2. Remove the front panel and disconnect the JP4 
Connector from the Motor Control Board. 
3. Reconnect the washer power cord to supply 
voltage. Make sure the lid is closed. 
4. Press Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for 3 
seconds to activate Service Mode. 
5. Access Board Output Test by pressing the 
Delicates key. Display shows “ot”. 
6. The lid must be locked to access Motor Control 
Board Output Test. To lock the lid press 
Colors/Jeans. To verify the test, the quick wash 
LED will be on, indicating the system relay is 
activated. If off, press Quick Wash with the lid 
shut to activate. 
7. Press Whites to start the motor control output 
test. This will send 120VAC to the motor control 
board. The motor control will execute a test 
routine and the motor should run, rotating the 
spinner at 50 rpm. There could be up to a 20 
second delay before the spinner starts rotating. 
8. If motor does not run: Check for 120 VAC at the 
motor control board harness between L1 and 

If voltage is present, then problem exists with the 
motor and motor control system. 
• Check for loose electrical connections at motor, and 
motor control board. 

If voltage is not present; 
• Check for loose electrical connections at Machine 
Control Board or broken wires in harness. 
• Check lid actuator switch and related wiring. The lid 
must be closed and locked by pressing 
colors/jeans. The system relay is then activated 
and the quick wash LED is lit. 
Board Functional Test Input Control Keys 
While in Service Mode, pressing the 
Super Wash key will begin the Board 
Input Test. This test turns on a specified 
output after a key press. Pressing the Super Wash 
key again cancels the test.

Error Code "LR" FAV6800AWW Maytag Washer


Thank you for choosing sears I would be happy to help you with your washer. Upon researching model FAV6800AWW; The LR code means "locked rotor" which is just a way of saying the control is not seeing the motor turning. Usually when the LR code is displayed the motor has stopped turning for some reason. By definition the LR code means the control has tried to turn the motor but was unable to. The neutral line for the Motor Control Board crosses the water valve. Neutral to the motor drive system can be lost If there is poor crimping of any of the wire terminals in this circuit. This could cause the “LR” code to appear as well, having nothing to do with the motor. Unplug the washer power cord and pull each terminal of the white wire harness connected to each water valve solenoid and verify the wire is properly stripped and crimped to the metal terminal connector of the wire harness. Make sure the wires fit snug on the terminals of the water valve solenoids.

I trust that this information will help you, thank you have a great day.

It Sounds like the water pressers is too high. I would recommend turning the knobs on the water supply lines while you filling up the washer. Do this until the water only goes into the tub.
