OP display light comes on when hitting start. Then hit off & in a minute it comes on?


Most times this issue is caused by loss of signaling thru the Left Hand Lid Lock.

1st check for a Lid Magnet out of position. This is an easy check if you have a couple key holder magnets or a similar magnet that you can place over the Left side grey lid bumper. Let's see if you can close the Magnetic Reed Relay switch with an external magnet and send +12VDC up to the Control Board and clear the "OP" error code.
If that doesn't clear the "OP" error code we will need to remove the Left Hand Lid Lock and check to see if corrosion is part of the issue. Because of its proximity to that nasty bleach dispenser it will cause issues. Here is the lid lock to order.
Here is a picture of a bad lid lock.

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.

Why does it say "op" when i press the start button?


The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.




I feel you have lost signaling from the Left Hand Lid Lock for Lid is Open/ Lid is Closed.

First check is to place a magnet over the Left Hand grey bumper and while watching the LED display see if the OP error code clears. If it does you have a lid magnet out of position. See the Service Manual for access to the Lid Magnet.

See Pic;

If an external magnet over the Left Hand grey bumper doesn’t clear the OP error code with the lid open then See this Link for troubleshooting Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting. I discuss the OD error code but the OP error code troubleshooting is very similar. If the lid Magnet is not out of position then I feel you have a broken lead at the Magnetic Reed relay or severe corrosion issues with the Left Hand Lid Lock preventing Lid Open/Lid Closed status signaling to the Control Board in the Console.

I have a Oki b6500. Replaced the fuser. How to reset the message exchange, "Maintenance." Please help!


The following procedure was provided by Oki Tech support when a web search did not provide an answer. Resetting the Fuser After Replacement - When Counter is NOT Reset First print out a MenuMap and note the fuser count, to later verify that the maintenance reset has taken affect. To reset the fuser counter, enter the diagnostics mode and go to Maintenance Mode Step-1 How to enter the maintenance mode. Hold the Menu & Right arrow button while powering on the printer. Hold the buttons down until the op panel displays “Initializing”. The op panel will display “Output Test” Step-2 Press the down arrow three times. The op panel will display “Maintenance Info” Step-3 Press the right arrow. The op panel will display “Reset Maint Reqd Execute” Step-4 Press the select button. A quick flash will come up on the op panel “Resetting Maintenance Reqd”. The op panel will then display “Reset Maint. Reqd. Execute” Step-5 Press the Cancel button to exit the Maintenance Mode and go back to “Online”. This completes the process, please print out the Menu and inspect the Fuser Count it should read ‘0.’

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

Lid switch need to replace switch or fuse, is the whole switch in the lid ???


Hey fireball1711 I'm at work on lunch break I give you a few some info to get ya started. The Left Lid Lock has big time problems with corrosion issues with it?s proximity to the bleach dispenser. Are you throwing an "OP" or ?OD? error when you hit the start button? Take a look at these links below to get you started. You will find a replacement part number for the Left Hand Lid lock the Service Manual and a parts look up links. The common console errors that stop the washer from working are ?OP? & ?OD? caused by an open lead on the magnetic reed relay, lid magnet out of position and corrosion on the male pins and plug assembly. The last alarm is the ?FL? error code for failed to lock again corrosion issues produce these faults most of the time. Don?t worry about the Right Hand Lid lock. I would disconnect it?s plug, tape of the plug end. It simplifies troubleshooting. You only need Left Hand Lid lock to operate for the washer to work as designed. If you can give me the details on the Console error codes you display that will help. Try the tips I mention in the links below and post back with any questions. I can dedicate more time to your issue after work tonight. OD Alarm OP Alarm Good Luck??. Rich

Will not start up and show code 0d


Hello kc59mail ,

For the FAV6800A the od alarm means the Control Board has not seen a lid open condition for three complete wash cycles. I suspect the left lid lock.

I think you have a problem with the magnetic reed relay in the left lid lock. If you could try this? I want to make sure you signal an “OP” alarm to the display. Can you select Spin Only cycle with the lid open press start. Do you signal the “OP” alarm lid open to the display? If it does close the lid and the “OP” alarm should clear does it? I’m checking that the lid magnet is in place and the signaling connections are working thru the left lid lock back to the control board.

Let us know what you fin and we will go from there. You could try powering down the machine by removing the 120VAC power cord from you wall receptacle. That may give you three more wash cycles before the od alarm is triggered again.
