Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
I’m an owner of the machine and know it quite well. If the One-Way roller clutches in the clutch pulley hub and the upper roller clutch assembly (if your series use’s it) can be cleaned up and re-lubed you can be back in service today. See this post Clutch Fix. My roller clutches failed at the 3.5yr mark Dec 08 causing dc/UC errors for any size load. I cleaned up and re-lubed and it worked fine. I replaced the clutch to try this clutch assembly back in Feb 08 25001169 to see if it would work it does and I recommend it to all owners for your and mine FAV6800AW and the LCD flavor of this machine the FAV9800AW. The clutch will work for all series of those machines. If you have basic mechanical skills and want to save money try to clean up the roller clutches and re-lube or replace for $60. If you call in a repair service I think you will be in the $300 range to repair. I have changed my nickname from dh1200s to FAV9800AWDIY I have many postings on the clutch subject at this site and Fixitnow.com where my Clutch Fix posting has been posted for these machines.
Good Luck and post back if you need help to DIY. …. Rich

Testimonial: "Very helpful. Thank you"
I removed the lower clutch with the bearings cleaned them and greased the bearings. With the front and top covers off, I put the machine in spin mode and all seemed to work great. So I closed everything back up, replugged the machine in and started a small load in quick wash.. YAHOO IT WORKED GREAT!!! I saved a ton of cash and no one was needed to come help. Yes, its tight quarters to work in so be prepared to put something down over the lower sheet metal it might cut your arms... Joe

The DC & UC errors indicate that there is a a clutch malfunction. The machine shuts down and will do nothing while these errors exist and shows that the Tub Displacement Sensor is working as designed.
The Clutch Assembly malfunction is usually corrected by replacing the clutch assembly and there is no work around for this problem.
Call a repair man to do the work asap.
