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.

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