Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
My Maytag Neptune TL washer is displaying an error of "od". After much research online, including this site, I realized that the lid lock part (#25001048) needs replacement. I ordered the part, not from Maytag but a parts website, and am much disappointed that it did not come with instructions. I have searched and searched online, and cannot find repair instructions. Im sure its just a matter of removing the panel or something, but I dont want to screw it up. Help!
I have replaced my right lid lock twice and the second one just went bad. The left one does not matter, only the right one tells the washer the lid is locked. I think the bleach cup is the problem, bleach corodes the metal contacts in the lock. Try removing the plug and cleaning the contacts. I am going to bypass this lock I am not buying any more parts for this unit!
People have reported replacing this lock several times in unser two years.

To open the top of the Washer ther are two spring clips catches in the front holding the top closed. Use a putty knife to depress the spring catches. Slip the putty knife into the seam between the cabinet and the top. The catch is located on the left and right edge of the lid, about five inches in from each side. Depress the catch and lift the washer top, then depress the second catch. the top will hinge to the back of the washing machine. I think that the maytag neptune Fav series has two of the lid lock. a left and right and two magnets. but you will see them when you get it open .. be sure to unplug the washer before you do any work on it.. good luck and let me know how you do.. krazytech

On the washer the od was flashing and in the Maytag book it says to open the lid. This was not the case for mine. I did open the top of washer and then disconect the two set of wires going to the lid closes. Then turn the power on and it will change to OP, Now turn the power off and plug in the lid connecter and it fixed my problem with the od. Mine was stuck in the flashing od mode and this was the only way I could slove the problem.
