Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

How do i take the top off?

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!

    The lid locks are not workihg properly, they may or may not lock/unlock when needed. How do I safely remove the top in order to replace the locks. ALso I see the hinge is causing rust. can the hinges be replaced as well without purchasing a new lid?

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.

The op code keep coming on


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).

You troubleshoot "OP" and "OD" similar. You can place a magnet over the left gray lid bumper with the lid raised and see if that will clear the OP error code with the lid open.

If it does then the lid magnet may be out of position in the inner lid.

You can't pull the Service Manual from Servicematters any more they have placed a coin slot on the site.

Maytag top load washer op error code, washer wont start. Checked and magnet is in place, what else can it be?


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.

You could also have a Lid Magnet out of posistion. Try placing a couple of ring magnets over the left hand bumper with the lid open and see if the OP error code clears.

The washer is stuck locked. When turned on it shows OP where the minutes are!! PLEASE HELP !!



Don’t force the lid open and break the lid locks.

Here is the Service Manual and parts look up;

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Use this procedure for releasing the washer top from the base;

Un plug the 120VAC power cord to the washer.

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.


Here is the pic from page 33.c4f9327.jpg

This will get the clothes out.

With the washer top raised gently push to Left and Right lid lock latches to outside of the lid the unlock position.

You can now lower the washer top to the base.

Do you want to DIY the OP error code?

The OP error code could be caused by a Lid Magnet out of position. To do a quick check with the lid open power up the washer. Do you have the OP error code showing? If so take a large magnet and place it over the grey left lid bumper and see if the OP error code will clear the LED display. A Pic for reference;


If that doesn’t clear the OP error code we would need to do deeper troubleshooting. Are you up for that? Let me know……Rich

Hi my washing machine bosch exxcel is not working ive checked filter the code f04 keeps flashing and i cant find my hand book to check code do you know what it means


The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.
