Maytag model# FAV6800AWW

5 posts in this topic

My Maytag model# FAV6800AWW won't spin counter-clockwise (CCW). I removed the front panel, powered it, and set to service mode. The motor spins clockwise, CW, (which engages the left and right tumblers), but it struggles to spin CCW. It spins a couple of revolutions then it stops. The motor spins again in CW, then stops. I cannot spin the tumblers manually which I've been able to do prior to this problem.

I need help in diagnosing the root cause of this problem.

I set it to service mode by pressing the "Enviro Plus" and "Spin Only" buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. I made a mistake with my failure description: it is the tub that I cannot spin. The tumblers spun when I moved the belt in CW direction.

I assume you can't rotate the Wash basket thru the lid CCW is that correct or by rotating the Clutch Pulley CCW is that coorrect?

If so remove the Clutch Pulley out of the machine and see if the wash basket will rotate CCW the spin direction.

If your FAV6800A series uses the upper bearing you may find that the Spinner Shaft coupler is rusted solid (leaky Tub seal) in the Clutch Pulley assembly.

If you need help on removing the Clutch Pulley shout back or Google Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 6th post down for support. I can't find my post on this forum for FAV6800A/FAV9800A Clutch removal/maintenance. If you need parts order thru the link at this site, a very good return policy........Dick
