Look in your Use and Care guide and if your unit has a Control Lock feature, it will explain how to turn it off. If you dont ahve your guide, you can always call Maytag and have them look it up for you.

The Maytag TL lid lock was not unlocking. finally after repeated unplug-plug, etc. it unlocked. I snipped off the plastic hook on the washer (not lid) & now it won't go into the wash cycle. ...

Google this for a similiar issue of breaking the Left Hand Lid Lock.

lid lock assembly look for forum response by dh1200s.

You are going to need a complete L.H. Lid lock assembly. p/n 25001048 Google for best price.

You have the issue of the Lid Locks no releasing so even after a replacemant L.H. Lid lock assembly (not cheap) you have the root cause issue to troubleshoot.

If you want to troubleshoot Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"" a forum where I help owners of the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines.

It's free because my time is free. I post as dh1200s at that forum and others as well as here. FAV6800AWDIY is my second account on this forum......Good Luck

I need an instruction manual for Maytag topload washer Neptune TL

Get the Service Manual this will help you diagnose issues with this washer.  I found a Service repair manual on this site search for this; FAV6800 Manual.  Check the postings and you will find a URL to the manual.

From another member a step by step to dump water from machine in diag mode  ""One other thing I learned for those of you who don’t want to bail out the water in the tub. If you want to have the machine drain the excess water without bailing this should work. Turn the machine off and make sure the "locked door" light goes off. Then hold the "Spin" and "Enviro Plus" buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. "00" should then show up on the display. Then hit the "Delicate" button, then the “Pre-soak” button. This should activate the pump and get all the water out. Once the water is out hit the off button. You then may want to try the Spin cycle alone. These directions can be found on the Troubleshooting Manual found folded up behind the rear panel of the machine where the main electrical circuit board is located.""
