I am getting a message saying the Curtain Open and I can't get my ice machine to come on?


I didn't think their smaller units had a curtain, but it is referring to the plastic shield that hangs in front of the ice making grid or evaporator. This must be closed for the unit to run and there is a magnetic reed switch located on the bottom right hand corner of the curtain to prove that it is closed. Actually the magnet is in the curtain and the reed switch is snapped into the side of the grid. Make sure the curtain is in place and the magnet has not broken off. If that is in tact look to see if the reed switch is in tight. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CURTAIN... some units had a small plastic flapper at the bottom of the grid that was activated whenever ice dropped. Same system though with a magnet and reed switch. The magnets on some of these curtains and flappers were just surface mounted with some kind of adhesive and others have it captured inside of a plastic pocket made into the curtain. So if you don't see a magnet look for a spot where it used to be. If you want to prove this is the problem just get a magnet and hold it up to that spot for about 10 seconds and see if the unit cycles on. You will then have to order a new curtain or flapper or attach a magnet to the broken spot somehow.

Icemaker starts then stops


The drop sensor is faulty, fooling the machine that the ice has harvested so it restarts. Eventually you will just have a solid block of ice. Replace sensor (magnetic reed switch)

Ice makers doesn't come on. All power and fuses or good.


magnetic reed switch on the lower right corner of the evaporator with a magnet imbedded in the water curtain. It must be on and closed to make the switch. If the magnet is in place you need to check the reed switch.

E14 message on whirlpool washing machine/dryer


To prevent the washer from operating while the detergent drawer is open your machine has what is called a "reed switch". The reed switch is controlled by this magnet, so that when the drawer is closed the magnet causes the reed switch to close and this tells the control board to go ahead and run the machine.

Your error message is telling you the reed switch it not working, so they want you to check the magnet to make sure it is still in place and is working.

DDO indicates on the display. Found a magnet that came off of the door dispenser, where does it go on the dispenser?


This is a door sensing magnet . When its in its place it tells the machine that the detergent dispensor is closed and will alow the machine to fill detergent dispensor it goes in the upper right corner of the detergent dispensor handle ... where location 49 is on attatchment newer models have done away with the magnet and the reed switch that senses the magnet this can be jumped out permanetly on the backside of the control panel where the detergent dispensor comes in is a white supository called a reed switch cut this and splice the two wires together and you never have to worry about losing the magnet again... or purchase new control without reed switch......you can always call for tech assistance dr.appliance dr_appliance.png

Display shows OP but unable to clear , checked out switch, 1 contact pin was heavily corroded. I polished it up but made no difference


If you place a magnet over the left hand grey bumper will this clear the OP error code with the washer lid up? If so you have a lid magnet out of position.
See page 35 of the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for the location.

Did you remove the left hand lid lock cover and inspect the connections on the magnetic reed relay?

Check to see if the leads on the magnetic reed relay are connected. This pic shows the black lead broken from one end of the magnetic reed relay. This will produce loss of signaling to the Control Board and generate an OP error code.

See this link for Left Hand Lid Lock troubleshooting http://www.fixya.com/support/t3124779-od_alarm_neptune_tl

I discuss troubleshooting for the OD error code. You troubleshoot the OP error code in a similar fashion.

Water container full but low indication on


I think the water level is read by a magnetic pick up driven by a black floater located 3/4 way towards the back of the water tank.
Make sure this floater can move up and down in its pocket: you can see it through the walls so just shake the tank to see it move, and check that it floats up when you fill water
