I have learned that adjusting the magnets a little will unlock and lock the door appropriately. That is if you have the new and improved computerized washer.

I have a maytag Neptune TL and OP blink when I try to start it


The OP code indicates that the washer can not determine if the lid of the washer is locked. The locks may be bad or the wiring between the lock and the control board could be faulty. These high efficiency washers will not operate without the lid being locked.

Is the lid locked when you get the OP code? Then I'd check the wiring. If it isn't locking, then you'll need to replace both the locks (one on each side) and the magnets. If you forced the locks apart to open the washer, then you'll probably need to replace these parts.

Please add a comment with the model number of your washer, if you'd like more information about the replacement parts or diagnostic tests that may be appropriate.

I hope this helps.

How do i bypass the lid lock on a new samsung washer ON A MOD#WH5471ABWXAA01


You can not by pass the lid lock on the new washers the rely on the signal that is sent to the computer to operate. It is a safety feature, the washer will not work without the lock operating. Why do you want to by pass it?

Amana washer lid lock wont quit blinking


Your washer lid lock button is locked and lid was not put down before it locked, which is why the light is flashing. Therefore, push the "START" button until you see the lid lock button is off (Approx 3 seconds). Once it is off, then you can put the lid down and push the start button again, which will lock the lid into place. The washer will NOT drain or wash or spin unless the lid itself is in the locked position. If you were able to get the lid down and locked and it still doesn't work, then you need a technician to replace a wiring harness. However, you mentioned that the lid lock button was flashing, therefore, it stands to reason that your lid is NOT locked down.

Your "lid lock" really is an interlock to prevent machine operation when the lid is open. I use a plastic clothespin to close the interlock because the lid on my washer got bent

Want to disengage lid lock on maytag centennial


I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK

My Roper Washer RTW43405Q0 won't spin.


For the washer to operate the lid must be fully closed, the timer must be pulled out, and the water must be drained.
The main causes for not spinning are:
  • Lid partially or completely open
  • Lid or other object has hit the timer knob and turned the washer off
  • Lid not locked (by the way, not on all washers) and may be not draining.

    Make sure the lid is completely closed. Make sure that no clothing is in the lid area.

    Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.



    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Hope this works.....

    My maytag neptune washer model#FAV9800AWQ keeps giving diagnostic code 4 and won't start the wash cycle or if it does start to wash it stops and says the lid is unlocked. the lid can't be opened because it...


    I’m an owner of the FAV6800A LED console display version. You have the LCD console.

    This issue could be related to a failed Control Board a failed Motor Controller. It could be related to loss of signaling to and from the lid locks.

    What is your skill set level can you use a DVM to measure D.C. voltages in the machine?

    If not I would recommend a knowledgeable repair service to help resolve the issue and that may be a challenge. But read on and maybe we can get you to look at the Left Hand Lid Lock,

    You can raise the washer lid from the base to remove your clothes from the wash basket with this process and the Service Manual . Don’t break the Left Hand Lid Lock latche if you do you will need to replace the Left Hand Lid Lock. The machine only needs that Lid Lock to operate as designed.

    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.

    Diag code 4 for both machines = The lid fails to lock. Look on page 25 for the error code description in then points you to this “”Go to "Will not unlock" Troubleshooting Section””. Confusing right?

    I think you could have corrosion issues with the Left Hand lid lock. If you want to DIY this part of the machine see this post for Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting.

    Take a look and see what direction you want to go…..Rich

    Error Code showing UC


    Hello plthrsn64 ,
    You should open up a separate problem for this but I will post as a solution for the Lid Lock Issue.

    For the FAV6800AW that is you machine type correct? The "LO" console error is "Lid has failed to unlock". I haven't experienced the "LO" error code to the display but this is the direction I would go in. I feel you have a signaling problem back to the control board in the console from the lid is unlocked contacts in the left/right Lid Locks.. I would disconnect the left and right lid lock plugs to the washer. The right lid lock is not necessary for operation. The left lid lock is the important one because of its dual signaling function, the Lid is closed signaling from the magnetic reed relay and lid magnet and the lid is locked signaling from lid locks slide switch in the lid lock. I think you may corrosion build up in the left lid lock such as the Pic’s I will attach show of other users. The left lid lock is subject to corrosion brought on by the bleach dispenser.


    You can start by un-seating the right lid lock and leave off. Then try un-seating and re-seating the left lid lock plug a few times and see if that will get you back in service. Be careful those plugs are difficult to pull out. Please remove power to the washer first then you will need to lift up the washer top to access the lid lock plugs. Here is the process, use the service manual for additional support.

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

    If seating/reseating the left Lid Lock a few times doesn’t help I would remove the left lid lock per the Service Manual, carefully open up the left lid lock and see if corrosion is the issue. The plastic latchs around the lid lock enclosure can break off very easily be careful when opening the lid lock. If you have severe corrision I would use some WD-40 to clean up the contacts with a Q-Tip. The cntacts for the Lid is locked slide back and forth with the activation of the solenoid in the lid lock. You may have to rock back and forth the solenoid to clean up the slide switch. Just watch how the relay parts sit in the lock the latch arm will come out and you will have to fit back together to operate correctly. Sounds complicated it is not, it's just difficult to explain. If you have to replace the left lid lock here is a link.
    Left Lid Lock Double check Part number if you order.
