Question about Washing Machines
Washer was displaying op error code even though it was locked so i unlocked the washer and unplugged it now it will not lock at all and is still showing error
Magnetic reed switch on left side below the gray rubber bumper, shown here...
Release two spring clips in front between main top and front panel using putty knife. Lift the main top and access the left and right door locks here.
To access and see if the magnet is in place, remove the dispenser from lid.
Gently pry the bottom of the plastic inner lid toward you then down. This will let you see if the magnet is in place on the right front corner of the inner lid.
Seems to be a common problem with this washer. Apparently, the lid isn’t completely watertight and allows water to get into this switch corroding the contacts and the wires.

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.
