Question and Answers

Q:

modol FAV6800AWW make noise when it spins

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to know where the noise is coming from on your Maytag washer.

If it is making this noise in spin as you say it will require the replacement of the spinner support and the clutch assembly. This Maytag design was very unique and has since been discontinued.

  • Unless you have some kind warranty or protection agreement I would suggest you run the washer until fails completely because it will not be economical to repair and you could invest the over $400.00 in parts alone not including the labor to repair this machine on a new machine.

  • I would hate to see you invest this kind of money in the washer.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

washer FAV6800AWW Maytag Washer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I strongly suggest calling a service technician with the training and experience to properly diagnose and repair this specific model washer. It operates like no other type of washer.

The problem could be the clutch or the tub displacement sensor. Again, I strongly advise calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer. I added a couple of images below with some diagnostic test and procedures. The lifters referenced to in the first image are the two large tumblers located inside the basket. The lifters rotate for wash and they should not rotate in spin.

Visual verification can be made of a malfunctioning clutch by observing the lifter operation in spin. The lifters will rotate up to one complete rotation just prior to the tub starting to spin counter clockwise. Should the lifters continue to rotate while the tub spins, examination of the clutch will be necessary. 

If the lifters rotate in spin, the pulley and clutch assembly part #12002211 will most likely have to be replaced. If the lifters rotate in spin, it will cause the load to become unbalanced and "UC" will display because the tub sensor detects the tub moving back and forth. NOTE: Disconnect the washer from the power source before servicing.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.

Q:

Maytag Neptune FAV6800AWW Washer problem

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details you are describing the bleach/fabric dispenser valve humming. The washer hot and cold water inlet valve must open in order for water to be supplied to the bleach/fabric dispenser valve. Based your symptom the failure could one of the two valves.

I added an image below that should assist in diagnosing which one has failed. One of the two valves may be faulty or restricted. The instructions in the image will describe how to place the washer into the Service Mode and then into a Quick Service Cycle and into a Board Output test.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
