Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Ive been reading and reading but i cant find my answer.
my washer keeps flashing the OP code whenever i try to start it.
i read some posts on this site and i think i should check the locks, magnets, and the wiring to the various switches because of corrosion and whatnot.
what i cant figure out is how to get the top off.
do i take the front panel off the washer to get to the latches? i figure i must- but i dont want to go flipping the washer upside down before i know what im getting into.
any help would be great, thanks!
You can take the top panel off by sliding a butter knife or putty knife and run it along the crack in the front. There are two catches that will release when the knife pushes against them. You just raise the lid.

Tips for a great answer:
The "OP" code indicates the lid is open. It needs to be fully closed before starting the cycle.
The "reed switch", is actually a term that is used because the lock or switch is reading off of a magnet.
For your appliance, you have two locks. One on the right hand side(part number 25001037) and one on the left hand side(part number 25001048).

If you place a couple magnets over the left gray bumper and the "OP" error code doesn't clear then I feel you have a problem with the Left Hand Lid Lock.
