I have maytag neptune tl,i moving3 week ago i do a coneccion and a have a cod en tha machine OP,and dont do nothing.


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 pics;

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

Why does it say "op" when i press the start button?


The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.




I feel you have lost signaling from the Left Hand Lid Lock for Lid is Open/ Lid is Closed.

First check is to place a magnet over the Left Hand grey bumper and while watching the LED display see if the OP error code clears. If it does you have a lid magnet out of position. See the Service Manual for access to the Lid Magnet.

See Pic;

If an external magnet over the Left Hand grey bumper doesn’t clear the OP error code with the lid open then See this Link for troubleshooting Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting. I discuss the OD error code but the OP error code troubleshooting is very similar. If the lid Magnet is not out of position then I feel you have a broken lead at the Magnetic Reed relay or severe corrosion issues with the Left Hand Lid Lock preventing Lid Open/Lid Closed status signaling to the Control Board in the Console.

The washer is stuck locked. When turned on it shows OP where the minutes are!! PLEASE HELP !!



Don’t force the lid open and break the lid locks.

Here is the Service Manual and parts look up;

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Use this procedure for releasing the washer top from the base;

Un plug the 120VAC power cord to the washer.

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.


Here is the pic from page 33.c4f9327.jpg

This will get the clothes out.

With the washer top raised gently push to Left and Right lid lock latches to outside of the lid the unlock position.

You can now lower the washer top to the base.

Do you want to DIY the OP error code?

The OP error code could be caused by a Lid Magnet out of position. To do a quick check with the lid open power up the washer. Do you have the OP error code showing? If so take a large magnet and place it over the grey left lid bumper and see if the OP error code will clear the LED display. A Pic for reference;


If that doesn’t clear the OP error code we would need to do deeper troubleshooting. Are you up for that? Let me know……Rich

Op is showing on board will not start


If your machine is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW take a look at this post and another post I link to in that post and see if you can work toward a fix.

Try placing a magnet over the left bumper and see if it clears the OP alarm if it doesn’t you will need to troubleshoot the left Lid Lock assembly.

The OP alarm is associated with the Lid Magnet operating the Magnetic Reed Relay and signaling back to the Control Board thru the left lid lock plug and cable assembly.

"OP" ERROR CODE


Take a look at this post, it’s for troubleshooting an OD alarm but you can follow the same troubleshooting path to see if you have a lid magnet out of position or a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay located in the left lid lock. The lid magnet operates the magnetic reed relay to signal the lid is closed/the lid is open. Try an external magnet on the left bumper and see if that clears the OP error code with the lid open. If it doesn’t I would try reseating the left lid lock plug (possible corrosion issues). If that doesn’t clear the OP alarm it would be time to pull the life lid lock out of the machine and inspect for a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay or other corrosion issues with the left lid lock. The left lid lock is in a location near the bleach dispenser. Links to the SM are in that post and a link for parts look up. Post back if you have questions
