The load finished on my whirlpool cabrio washer (topload) but the machine won't unlock the lid?


you need to replace the lid lock. the latch probably broke in 2, and the broken part is whats keeping the lid closed. if you have clothes inside you can open the top by using a putty knife to release the front clips holding the top of the machine down. push each clip in and lift up. you will also be able to access the lid lock this way.

Check the lid cover. At the edge, there is a plastic housing some sort of a magnet. This is the magnetic sensor for lid cover open protection.
If the magnet is not there, place a magnet at the position on the washer where the housing will come in contact with the washer when lid is close.

Same problem: Lid Open Alarm


You will need to replace the part on the lid. This piece pushes on the lid switch letting the machine know the lid is closed. You can by pass this until you are able to get the piece by pushing a screw driver into the hole where the part from the lid went. Be sure not to push it in to hard, if you do you will have to replace the switch also. Be sure to replace the part from lid because this is a safety switch to keep hands and arms out of the machine while it's running.

Maytag Neptune keeps giving us the OP signal


Hello Kristi,
If its FAV6800A/FAV9800A try placing couple 1” dia magnets or similar magnet on the left bumper of the machine and see if that will clear the the “OP” lid open alarm, see pic attached. If that clears the alarm the lid magnet may have moved out of position in the inner lid. See page 33 of the FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual for its location. If that doesn’t clear the “OP” alarm remove 120VAC to the machine and try reseating the left lid lock plug into the left lid lock a few times to possible clear corrosion causing loss of signaling from the left lid lock to the control board Lid Is Closed input. See page 33 and 34 of the SM for pics if the left lid lock and lid magnet. I recommend surge protection on the120VAC outlet powering the machine to help protect the washer control board. Good luck Rich.
Place some external magnets on left bumper and see if that will clear the "OP" alarm.

Try reseating the left lid lock plug into the left lid lock. Be careful, it may be difficult to remove for the 1st time.

Will not start up and show code 0d


Hello kc59mail ,

For the FAV6800A the od alarm means the Control Board has not seen a lid open condition for three complete wash cycles. I suspect the left lid lock.

I think you have a problem with the magnetic reed relay in the left lid lock. If you could try this? I want to make sure you signal an “OP” alarm to the display. Can you select Spin Only cycle with the lid open press start. Do you signal the “OP” alarm lid open to the display? If it does close the lid and the “OP” alarm should clear does it? I’m checking that the lid magnet is in place and the signaling connections are working thru the left lid lock back to the control board.

Let us know what you fin and we will go from there. You could try powering down the machine by removing the 120VAC power cord from you wall receptacle. That may give you three more wash cycles before the od alarm is triggered again.

I have a brand new LG 8KG top loader washing machine


Thank you for coming back to me, yes I have had the problem solved today. A technician came around to my home and made a slight adjustment to the Lid and said it should never give me trouble again. It was a free service as my washing machine was brand new and it started up perfectly and went through it's full cycle with no hicups!
Many thanks,
Billie. South Africa. ( Durban)
