Assuming that is either fiber glass or some sort of Acrylic tub, the best way to clean it is to drain and wipe the surface with white vinegar and then rinse with clean water.
Be sure to use a hose end filter when re-filling the tub so you will not get dirt into the tub again. Here is a link to a hose filter on Amazon.

Hi Big Wags

I would remove both water hoses at the back of the washer and check the Hot & Cold inlet screens for a clog/restriction.

They look like this;

You can turn the individual valves on in service mode using the procedure on page 16 of the Service Manual.

To enter Service Mode; press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”.

Now go into board output test by pressing the Delicates key.

Now press the Normal button to open the Hot Water Valve you can press the Normal button again to turn off the valve or just press the Off button to end the process. Or just use the wash cycle to toggle the H/C water valves on. I like folks to become familiar with using Service Mode and the SM.

If the inlet screens are free of debris and you have good water pressure from your source valve then you may have to replace the valve assembly Here is a link to check for FAV6800AW PARTS Sears Parts Direct. Shout back If you have questions. Rich

Hot tub pump will not start back up after cleaning hot tub


When you say the pump won't start back up, do you mean the electrical side of things and there is just no power going to the pump. Or are you saying that the pump is on but not pumping water.

I am going to think you mean the pump is on but not moving water. This is common after you clean and drain your hot tub. You have what is referred to as an airlock in your hot tub line. It is easy to remove the airlock by simply opening one of the unions near the pump. This will allow the air to release and water flow to begin again.

Make sure also that you have cleaned the hot tub filters, if they are dirty and reduce water flow that could shutdown your hot tub pump as well.

If it is the electrical side of things make sure your GFCI has not tripped and maybe you just need to reset this. If it is anything further on the electrical side make sure you involve a professional.

  • open a union to release any airlocks.
  • clean your hot tub filters.
  • check to make sure your GFCI is not tripped.

Hot Tub - Spring cleaning and Maintenance


Spring is a great time to change the water in your hot tub and clean or replace your hot tub filters. Drain and give your hot tub a good thorough cleaning to rid yourself of the winter season. Make sure that you clean your hot tub cover at the same time both the top and the underside. This will help the hot tub cover to last longer and perform better. Hot Tub Spring Cleaning Tips

The spa will not start - the pump is definitely connected to working power and the last time i tried it worked fine. However today when I push the on button nothing happens?


When you say nothing happens, I wonder if the unit is making any sound at all or do you mean there is no water flow? If there is no water flow in your hot tub or spa then it could be just a simple air lock. Often when you drain your hot tub or spa you have to prime the system afterwards, this includes the pump but may also include the suction lines. The suction lines can develop an airlock in the upper portions of the suction line. To remove an airlock you simply force water into the suction line or release the air in the line by opening a union. Hot Tub Repair 101 What is an E6 or Error 6 Code Mean

Additionally, you could need new hot tub filters. If the filters are dirty and water flow is restricted your power pak may shut itself down as well. This can be as simple as cleaning your filters or replacing them. Hot Tub Filters

Here are a few things to consider

  • release any air locks
  • clean filters
  • make sure there is no obstructions in the lines
  • check to make sure GFCI is operational
I hope this helps.

What does the E6 error mean


Hi Cheyenne,

Most of the time an E6 error code refers to a restriction of water in your power pack. When you don't have enough water flow the power pack shuts itself down so it does not over heat.

Possible reasons are dirty filters, air locks, restrictions of water flow,

Solutions are to make sure your water flow is as best as possible, clean your filters often, remove debris from your hot tub, and remove air locks from your power pack.

Spa thermal overheating


Turn off all power to the hot tub as soon as you realize it is overheating. The spa should have an automatic shut off when the water temperature reaches about 112 degrees fahrenheit. Call your hot tub dealer or manufacturer for service options. There are a variety of conditions that could lead to the overheating of your hot tub, but may differ in various hot tub models and brands. Check the water level of the hot tub. Low water levels could be the culprit for the over heating, so you may just need to add more water to the hot tub.
Check the shut-off valves in the hot tub. If they are closed while the hot tub heater is on, it could cause the water to reach unsafe temperatures.
Clean the hot tub filter. A dirty filter could be blocking the flow of water, causing the water to sit in the hot tub and overheat.
Turn the power back on after finding the problem and talking to the hot tub dealer. The hot tub will probably not start back up until the water reaches a safe temperature

Over heating showing oh water to hot


It sounds like you may have either too slow of water flow moving through the heater ( caused by a dirty filter ), or you may have a bad high limit sensor. Check to see that the filter is clean first.

What does FL mean on my hot tub?? water doesnt circulate but is still sort of warm...


FL could be a code for low flow. If you have no circulation this sounds like it. If your pump runs and you have no flow you could have a problem with your pump. Or if you have the tub drained then it could be an air lock, if you open the drain valve till you get water out that should fix that. Also check to be sure the isolation valves are open under the spa. I hope this helps.
