The washer lid is open. The lid must be closed to start cycle. Close the lid and press Start/Pause.

Code OP means lid is open. If it really isn't, then the problem is with the switch that sense whether the lid is shut or not. Could be bad switch or bad connection.

This forum member’s solution is going in the right direction I’m going to give you a bit more info to troubleshoot the issue if you want to DIY the repair. You have lost signaling from the left lid lock to the control board. The lid magnet could be out of position here is a quick check to try. Raise the lid then press Spin Only key, press on and you should throw the OP alarm to the console. With the lid open place a magnet on the left bumper as shown in this pic. If the OP alarm fails to clear we rule out the lid magnet as out of position.

Next step is to raise the washer top as shown on page 34 of the Service Manual
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
To raise the top of the machine insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point.

Disconnect the washer power cord. We can try to reseat the Left Lid Lock a couple of times to see there is there is corrosion causing a issue. Removing the plug is difficult so be careful. See page 34 of the SM, the plug you are going to reseat is shown in the pic on page 34 next to the tech’s thumb in that pic. After reseating a few times power up the machine try a Spin Only cycle, close the lid and hit the on button and see if the left lid lock is signaling the control board that the lid is closed. If you still take the OP alarm then it’s time to remove the left lid lock and inspect for corrosion or a broken wire on the magnetic reed relay. Some owners have found that corrosion has caused the soldered lead ends on the on the magnetic reed relay to break off. They can be soldered back on. See pic’s for corrosion issues and the lead that has broken off the magnetic reed relay.

Follow the SM to remove the left lid lock be careful when you release the tabs on the left lid lock case halves for inspection they break of very easy. Post back if you still need help. If you need to replace the left lid lock here is the part number 25001048 and a link, another. Good luck.

I will give you a few things to try that are non technical and let’s see if the Control Board will let you in Service Mode. If so we will try lock and unlock the washer in Service Mode.
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
Let enter Service Mode;
Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Board Output Test
While in Service Mode, pressing the Delicates key will begin the Board Output Test. This test turns on a
specified output after a key press. (Pressing the Delicates key again cancels the test.) All outputs
will be turned off after five (5) minutes.

Now Press the Colors / Jeans key this should lock the Left and Right Lid Locks….. did it?

If the lid locked now press the Extra Rinse Key and this should Unlock the Left and Right Lid Locks….. did it?


Let me know and we will go from there. I’m trying to get a feel for what Control Board functionality you have……Rich

You will need to open the switch and short the switch using a wire, if what you meant is that there is a switch failure which will not start the program and so the motor will not start on the machine.

I have a maytag Neptune TL and OP blink when I try to start it


The OP code indicates that the washer can not determine if the lid of the washer is locked. The locks may be bad or the wiring between the lock and the control board could be faulty. These high efficiency washers will not operate without the lid being locked.

Is the lid locked when you get the OP code? Then I'd check the wiring. If it isn't locking, then you'll need to replace both the locks (one on each side) and the magnets. If you forced the locks apart to open the washer, then you'll probably need to replace these parts.

Please add a comment with the model number of your washer, if you'd like more information about the replacement parts or diagnostic tests that may be appropriate.

I hope this helps.

I have a Maytag Neptune TL washing machine, it runs almost all the way through they cycle but on the last spin cycle it stops and the digital display shows LO. Can you help me?


LO error code:

Locked: Lid has failed to unlock -

the machine has repeatedly tried to

unlock the lid. Push lid closed to

make sure nothing from the inside is

pressing against the lid, preventing

unlocking.

Is that the issue? Have the Lid locks failed to release and you can't open the Lid?

Or have the Lid Locks released so you can open the washer lid but the error code LO remains?

If you want to DIY I will help you.

I have maytag neptune tl,i moving3 week ago i do a coneccion and a have a cod en tha machine OP,and dont do nothing.


Sorry should read ""Confirm the model number and the 1st two digits if the serial number and I will see if I can help. Is the machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Any error unbalance codes during the spin cycle like dc or UC? ""


You have lost signaling thru the left hand lid lock or have a lid magnet out of posistion.

With the lid open try placing a magnet over the left hand grey lid bumper with the lid open.

If the OP error code clears then it's a Lid Magnet issue. If the OP error code dosen't clear we need to troubleshoot the Left Hand lid lock or replace. I prefer to troubleshoot further before buying a part. Let me know what you want to do. If you want to troubleshoot/DIY the repair we need to move your issue to a better DIY appliance repair forum. Try the external magnet first and rule out a Lid Magnet out of position issue.

See pics;

See if an external magnet over the left grey lid bumper will clear the OP error code.

You have lost signaling thru the Left Hand lid Lock. The washer has not see the lid go closed thru the signaling with the magnetic reed relay in the Left Hand Lid Lock.


You could have a Lid Magnet out of position or severe corrosion. You can place a large magnet over the Left bumper like this and see if the OP error code clears;

See this post for troubleshooting the OP error code Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting I go over OD error code troubleshooting but you troubleshoot the issue the same way for the OP error code.

If the Lid Magnet is not out of position you may have an open circuit thru the Magnetic Reed Relay as shown in the Pics of this link Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting.
