I have had this problem 3 times. My washer just started this again last night. UNPLUG MACHINE FIRST!! If you are standing in front of your mashine, the top lifts up (you can use a butter knife or screwdriver to push in the clips, they are about 2 inches in from the corner). There will be a white lock control on the left hand side, just under the lid by the bleach dispenser. It has a little silver bolt/screw holding it on. Remove this, but watch out, the bumper will fall off from the other side. Unplug the wires from the lock mechanism. It just pulls out. There are little locks that hold the lock mechanism closed. They will probably break, mine did! Open the mechanism. There is a little glass tube with a black wire soldered to one end and a red wire on the other. The wire is so little, it rusts off quickly. That's exactly what I found. You can resolder this and then tape the mechanism back together. This is very easy. I already have a repair scheduled (Extended warranty), but everytime I have this piece of s____ machine fixed, it costs me the price of a new machine that actually works in laundry mat fees for my family of 7. If this will hold me the 2 months it takes till then, what the heck!

Maytag top load washer op error code, washer wont start. Checked and magnet is in place, what else can it be?


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.

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.

LID WON'T LATCH ERROR CODE FL


With that code FL “ Failed to lock” I would start looking at the lid latch mechanism. See this link from another site for lid latch problem.

If you want to try to repair or get a better understanding of how to diagnose and repair this machine take a look at the service repair manual.

I hope this will help with your decision to try a repair or replacement.  

Good luck with your issue.

My Neptune top-loader washer,


Evidently the "OP" code indicates the lid is "open". Solution in my case: I had to replace a wire on the lid switch that a
had rusted and no longer connected to the switch resister.

There is a magnet in the left, front corner of the plastic lid insert. When the lid is closed, this magnet sets on top of the tan colored plastic pad on the left front top of the base washer unit. When the lid is closed, the magnet activates two, small metal rods on each end of a resister within the white. You have to pop up the top of the washer base to gain access to the switch, Good luck,

Code OP means lid is open. If it really isn't, then the problem is with the switch that sense whether the lid is shut or not. Could be bad switch or bad connection.

The washer lid is open. The lid must be closed to start cycle. Close the lid and press Start/Pause.
