Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800A Top Load Washer
I unfortunately have a Maytag Neptune Top LOader 6800 that for the second time I left the lid open for an hour or so. Now the machine keeps buzzing the "OP" error (lid open) even when it's not and the wash cycle will not begin. I unplugged the machine for a day in hopes it would reset it has not PLEASE HELP
I had that same problem. I lift the top up by using a screwdriver and pushing in clips that are in the front. Lift lid carefully from the front. A hinge in the back will hold the back of the lid. Look where locks are located and see if they are connected. On my washer the connection was barely on. I reconnected the lock and have not had problem since. 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.

If you place a couple magnets over the left gray bumper and the "OP" error code doesn't clear then I feel you have a problem with the Left Hand Lid Lock.
