SOURCE: how do you replace left lid lock on Maytag Neptune washer

Problem may be with door switch and not the door lock. If you are able you could try to locate the switch and jump the two wires together to see if the od code goes away. Even if it works you should not leave it that way but get a new switch and replace the faulty one.

SOURCE: maytag neptune washer stops after filling

Hello n8mtsn,

I would pull the 120VAC power cord to the washer for 10 seconds then power back up.
See if you can get into service mode. To enter Service Mode press and hold he Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”. If you can’t get into Service Mode I feel you have a Control Board issue/failure.

If you can get into Service Mode then go to page 15 of the SM and we want to try a Quick Service Cycle test. Follow the instructions to enter the Quick Service Cycle test and let us know the results. If the test will run it will take about 10 minutes.

SOURCE: Maytag top loading washer will not agitate

My rule of thumb: Take what you paid for the washer new and divide by number of years without repairs. That is your cost per year for the washer. If the repair will get you another year and is less than the number above do the repair. If you have done more than 2 major repairs in a year it is time to think new. eric

Lid Locks- Fills for 2 seconds and stops


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer lid won't lock the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer door won't lock the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Main Control Board If the washer door won't unlock the problem might be the main control board. This is not common. Normally the problem is with the lock mechanism.

Want to disengage lid lock on maytag centennial


I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK

Its normal for the machine to cycle the lock before starting its cycle. I'm assuming your machine is a bravos style.

The Maytag TL lid lock was not unlocking. finally after repeated unplug-plug, etc. it unlocked. I snipped off the plastic hook on the washer (not lid) & now it won't go into the wash cycle. ...


Google this for a similiar issue of breaking the Left Hand Lid Lock.

lid lock assembly look for forum response by dh1200s.


You are going to need a complete L.H. Lid lock assembly. p/n 25001048 Google for best price.


You have the issue of the Lid Locks no releasing so even after a replacemant L.H. Lid lock assembly (not cheap) you have the root cause issue to troubleshoot.


If you want to troubleshoot Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" a forum where I help owners of the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines.

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.

Google this Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW

This is a DIY Appliance repair forum no cost and you can get the Service Manual from this site.

In the Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW 5 post down you will find a link to the Service Manual. You absolutely need the Service Manual to DIY issues with the machine. It's not the best SM but will get you started. I also have repair post in that sticky to help with the most common issues with the machine.

In that Sticky are other what I find to be common Service Repair notes for issues with the machine.

If you need help post in the Maytag/Magic Chef/Admiral/Jenn-Air forum with your issue and we will try to help. No cost to you for the support..........D*ick

The lock light flashes and the machine continues to try and lock even though it appears to be locked...stops filling Maytag neptune TL


Are you up for troubleshooting? I will try to keep it low tech.


Do both Lid locks remain locked (you can't open the lid ) and you just have the Locked LED is flashing?


I'm assuming if you hit the OFF key the machine will unlock is that correct?


If so I feel you have lost signaling thru the lid locks possible do to corrision. We would start on the Left Hand lid lock which would require removal and very carefully opening up the case halves of that lid lock.

Here is a pic of what we might find inside...... some corrision;

My maytag neptune washer model#FAV9800AWQ keeps giving diagnostic code 4 and won't start the wash cycle or if it does start to wash it stops and says the lid is unlocked. the lid can't be opened because it...


I’m an owner of the FAV6800A LED console display version. You have the LCD console.

This issue could be related to a failed Control Board a failed Motor Controller. It could be related to loss of signaling to and from the lid locks.

What is your skill set level can you use a DVM to measure D.C. voltages in the machine?

If not I would recommend a knowledgeable repair service to help resolve the issue and that may be a challenge. But read on and maybe we can get you to look at the Left Hand Lid Lock,

You can raise the washer lid from the base to remove your clothes from the wash basket with this process and the Service Manual . Don’t break the Left Hand Lid Lock latche if you do you will need to replace the Left Hand Lid Lock. The machine only needs that Lid Lock to operate as designed.

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.

Diag code 4 for both machines = The lid fails to lock. Look on page 25 for the error code description in then points you to this “”Go to "Will not unlock" Troubleshooting Section””. Confusing right?

I think you could have corrosion issues with the Left Hand lid lock. If you want to DIY this part of the machine see this post for Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting.

Take a look and see what direction you want to go…..Rich
