Hello glendeza
I saw your previous post and I feel you have a Control Board issue. If power cycling the machine at the 120VAC service outlet doesn’t clear the issue this could be a $300+ fix by a service repair person.
This is a $1000 machine so you will have to make the decision to repair or not. Because you are not the original owner you may not get any service support from Maytag. The control board has a 5 year warranty.
If you want to DIY a fix I would have to start by replacing the Control Board.
If you are near the 19344 area and decide to junk the machine I would make you an offer for parts. Here is a link for the Service Manual. Down load and take a look. Plug your serial number into this Age Finder to look up Mfg. date.

Good Luck. Rich

Washer finally stopped working on OP code,Touch pad lights go blinking intermittently and all light up dimmly at times,now it's stuck on OP and lid is locked! any suggestions?

This could be a Control Board or Console problem.

Could be something like the ribbon cable from the Console to Control Board connection.

Do you wnat to troubleshoot the problem? You can release the washet top from the base to get your clothes out. You can't get the SM from this site anymore. It available at other DIY sites. I

My neptune washer is stuck in pause mode I can't set it any any wash mode to wash a load the start/pause light just keeps blinking. Is there any way to reset it or boot it to get it started again thanks...


Power it down by pulling the 120VAC power cord to the washer then plug back in and see if it will progress with the wash cycle. Which machine do you own the FAV6800A LED console display or the FAB9800A LCD console.

If still no good I will have you try to get into Service Mode but let’s see if a power cycle will clear the issue…….Rich

You will need the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Are there any error codes to the LED display when you press the Start button of your FAV6800AW is that your model? Error codes types such as OD, OP, FL,LR etc.

Have you tried to power cycle the machine by pulling the 120VAC power cord then re-power back up. If there are no error codes the next step would be to enter service mode and read the machines diagnostic error code list to get a start point for troubleshooting.

I’ll assume the machine type is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW and post some handy links. If you want to DIY I will try to help. If you decide to call in a service repair company I would call Maytag for an authorized Maytag repair service in your area some parts Like the Control Board may still be under warranty (5yr). Warranty info is in the SM link I attached. The number to call is 800-688-9900. Maytag will need your model number and serial number, that info is located on the back right top side of the console.

Does anyone have the schematic for LCD control

I don’t believe you will find a schematic for the control board. I have a FAV6800AW all I have be able to find is the wiring schematic found in the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW Service Manual.
Is your machine out of the 5yr warranty period for the Control Board? I got Maytag to send me one.

if this worked fine before, then I am only guessing that the water inlet valve has malfunctioned. try filling the machine with a garden hose...any change? if still no go, then be sure to have a shop-vac handy to remove the water you just added.
