SOURCE: Need to replace Lid Switch for Maytag Atlantis 2002 Washer

Hello, I can help you.


Let me explain to you how the Maytag washer lid switch works.
The lid switch is located on the controls panel, and is activated by opening and closing the washer door. The purpose of the lid switch is to prevent the washer from working with the door open.


It is a safety device to prevent the user from sticking their hands inside of the washer while the washer is agitating or spinning.


When the washer lid switch stops working, the result could be that the washer won't wash, drain, spin and in some cases the washer will not work at all.

You will need a multimeter to check the internal contacts on the washer lid switch.


You will also need to use the wiring schematic to see what contact should be close when the lid switch supposed to be on.


You will need to remember that the Maytag washer lid switch is one of the first parts that you will need to check, when the washer don't want to start filling, agitating, draining or spinning.

Its normal for the machine to cycle the lock before starting its cycle. I'm assuming your machine is a bravos style.

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.

My washer is locked won't open


Will Not Unlock
• Press off. The motor control is not responding if it
takes 4 minutes to unlock. The motor control is
either bad or disconnected.
• Unplug and reconnect power cord. Wait 20 seconds
for machine to unlock.
• Check lid locked switch circuit. Circuit should be
closed at machine control.
• Check for loose electrical connections at lid lock and
at machine control board.
• Push lid closed to make sure nothing from inside is
pressing against it which may keep it from unlocking.
• If necessary, remove clothes by disconnecting power

to washer, and open top cover with a putty knife.Here is the part to order.

Lid Locks- Fills for 2 seconds and stops


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer lid won't lock the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer door won't lock the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Main Control Board If the washer door won't unlock the problem might be the main control board. This is not common. Normally the problem is with the lock mechanism.

My washer has filled up with water and then just stopped and wont begin the cycle...


Try manually advancing timer . If washer starts , timer motor is bad or gets stuck , or water level switch is bad and not sending power to timer.

If washer doesn't start ,the lid switch is stuck not sending power to timer or god forbid, timer is shot.

In some models , lid switch controls everything which may be your problem .Try manually operating lid switch or jumping it with jumper wire.Or just replacing. Its' the easiest to fix and most likely problem.

Good luck

Sounds like the lid latch switch is broken. You can bi pass it if it's not the type that locks the lid down. Otherwise you will have to replace it.

My maytag washer stoped during the cycle with 8


You may have blown the internal fuse located in the lid switch. Could be you over loaded the washer and blew the fuse.
Unplug the washer and remove the four screws holding the control panel front in place. Two screws on top and two screws under control panel.
Remove the control panel and tilt forward.
Locate the lid switch assemble and remove glass fuse and inspect.
Door switch assembly should be replaced. When you order the proper fuse it should come with the door switch assembly.
Replace assembly. Reinstall the front control panel and four screws.
Plug machine in and test.

Control panel flashes a "FL" sign


Hello washerproble,
You mention the Service Manual good, that has more info then the troubleshooting guide packed in the console of the machine. The TS guide has the schematic which is very handy. Do you feel OK to troubleshoot and try a DIY repair?
I’m an owner and have not experienced your problem but I can simulate the “FL” error on my working FAV6800AWW. Looking at the schematic of this machine the control board wants to see input from either the left or right side lid lock to signal the control board that the “Lid Is Locked”. Can you select Spin only cycle and press the start button … do both lid locks close and lock the lid? If they did and you still take “FL” error you have loss of signaling “Lid Is Locked” form the lid locks back to the input of the control board. Pull the washer power cord from your 120VAC service outlet and try reseating the lid lock plugs into the connector of the left and right lid lock. Maybe a loose plug or corrosion, only one of them needs to work to signal the control board the “Lid Is Locked”. The left lid lock is the important one because of its dual signaling function back to the control board. It has the reed switch in it providing the signaling the “Lid Is Closed “ to the control board which is operated by the lid magnet. If you still take the ”FL” error you would have to start trouble shooting toward the control board to find the loss of “Lid Is Locked” signaling to the control board. The easiest thing to do if you feel the machine is a keeper is to invest in the left lid lock and replace it and see if that gets you back in service. Again only one lid lock is necessary to signal the control board the “Lid Is Locked”. This site has a link to parts just type model number

How do you clear a od error code on a maytag fav6800aww


I agree with fastnhonda troubleshooting. I will just toss out some additional info. I’m an owner like you just trying to troubleshoot from a distance. The OD alarm is signaled by the control board when the control board has not seen a lid open signal from the left lid lock for three completed wash cycles. Could be corrosion issues with the left lid lock and or plug connecting to the left lid lock. If you pull the power plug on the machine then re-power up does the “OD” alarm clear? This might clear the “OD” alarm for three wash cycles. If it does can you do this; open the washer lid and start a Spin Only cycle with the lid open do you throw an OP (Lid Is Open) alarm to the console? If so do you clear the “OP” alarm when you close the lid? I’m checking the signaling functionally of the Left Lid Lock assembly of the magnetic reed relay and lid magnet thru the left lid lock and plug back to the control board.
If no results come from above testing and you want to DIY the repair I would remove the left lid lock (remove the left lid lock as shown on page 34 of the SM) and inspect for corrosion issues as the other forum member speaks to and a possible broken wire connection on the magnetic reed relay. See the red & black wire going to magnetic reed relay switch as shown in the pic. below. Note the black wire is broken away from one end of the magnetic reed relay do to corrosion. If you take apart the left lid lock the tabs holding the case halves together break off very easy so be careful on disassembly. I would not replace the right lid lock just yet. Removing the plugs on the lid locks is difficult so be careful. I would remove the left lid lock and inspect and clean up wih WD-40 if there are corrosion issues such as shown below or a broken wire (re-solder) on the magnitic reed relay. If this doesn’t resolve the “OD” alarm I would then replace the left lid lock only at this time. The right lid lock is not needed for normal washer operation.

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


Disconnect the washer power cord.
To 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.
