Maytag Neptune toploader interlock system "tabs" broken

I have a Maytag Neptune top loading washer.  The plastic tabs that engage into the lid have been snapped off. (Never ask a teenage boy to do wash).  Can I repair this?  I have the other half of the peices.  Is there another way to circumvent the interlock system?

Maytag FAV6800AWW Top Load Washer installed 7/21/04 lid rusting underneath, tub rusting. What can I do if anything?


The Washer lid and top base and base cabient can be sanded primed and rattle can touch up. You won't have the nice finish.

The tub is fiber glass or some molded plastic so I assume your are speaking about the metal parts ie. lid, washer top base and cabinet.

There are some parts on e-bay from time to time such as 25001117 Lid (white) FAV6800AWW

How do i unlock a maytag neptune tl?


Disconnect the machine from power source then insert a plastic putty knife or similar tool in line with the lid seam and push in to release catches on the left and right side. The top cover can then be hinged up.

Once the top cover is raised, remove each of the 1/4" hex-head screw attaching each lid lock to the top cover.

Release the lid locks from the lid then reinstall them back into the top cover. Take the opportunity to visually check the lid locks and the harnesses for any obvious sign of degradation such corrosion and broken wires.

Lid will not engage safety switch , closing lid does not engage safety switch , i have to wedge something in it


Either the pin on the lid has broken, or the switch mounting bracket has broke or the screws losened and the pin cannot push the switch enough. If the switch is mis-positioned, you'll have to open the washer top and check out the switch mounting. Goodluck< Macgivor

I posted a problem with a Neptune top load washer


The lid lock is bad part # is left side  25001048 runs around $80,the problem tends to stem from the dispensers water and bleach work their way into the switch and I have never had much luck cleaning them out and getting them to work.. and that is left hand side as you are facing the machine.

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,
