SOURCE: 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,

SOURCE: I have a brand new LG 8KG top loader washing machine

Thank you for coming back to me, yes I have had the problem solved today. A technician came around to my home and made a slight adjustment to the Lid and said it should never give me trouble again. It was a free service as my washing machine was brand new and it started up perfectly and went through it's full cycle with no hicups!
Many thanks,
Billie. South Africa. ( Durban)

It's something to do with the draining, check your drainage hose isnt clogged, mine had a bunch of 5 cent coins stuck just near the pump.

I have a Defy DTL 139 toploaderwashing machine. Keep getting a E4 error. Code apparently mean lid is open. How can I fix this ?

Is the latch on the lid damaged. That would cause it to not lock shut.?
Perhaps the keeper in the washer body is damaged of maybe there is a lead off on the electrical contact on the keeper, which tells the control-system that the lid is down & latched.

There might also be a broken lead or loose connector at the other end of this cable where it plugs into the control-board.

Best of luck.

Defy top loader. What is e4 error?

Generally the E4 error means that the tub is unbalanced. You either filled the washer unevenly, or you are trying to wash something too heavy or too large. Take everything out of the machine, and then re-arrange it and put it back in. If you are still getting the error, you need to wash less clothes at a time.

Another possibility is that your sensor needs replacing, the sensor that tells you how full the tub is and when it's off balance. For that, you need to call a repairman.

Will not spin i assume youve checked manual if not above link will work,it suggests e4 to mean lid not closed,this could be a switch fault where the lid closes it must physically move a switch inside,or the wire to switch may have pulled out,either way if 3mths old ring for engineer,e2 is pump fault which would also stop machine from entering spin mode,
