Open Door Error. - Problem with the door latch mechanism or sensor. For the od error, open the door and jiggle the locks.
It's possible that soap has gotten there and is making them not knock whatever it is they need to knock to register that the door has opened.
You might need something fairly long and thin such as jeweler's screw drivers
OD :The door has not been opened after two complete wash cycles. Door switch was not seen open since the last two final spins.

Here is a shop manual for your model.

Try to run the diagnostic mode, see manual. Or unplug for 5 minutes. Remember if this code reappears you may have a stuck or bad door latch.

if after running a diagnostic, and th latch is still reporting an error - it will need to be replaced.

You have lost signaling thru the lefthand lid lock

Google this "Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW"

Go to the 5 post in the sticky for the Service Manual and within the Sticky I describe the issue of OP, OD, and FL error codes.

Ypu don't mention in your description but I assume your machine is throwing an OP or DO error code.

I describe how to diagnosis and repair the issue.

I have a Maytag TL Neptune FAV6800AWW ..... error code ob....can you tell me what this means?

I think you mean OD. Place a magnet over the left Gray Bumper and see if the OD error code clears. Could be a Lid Magnet out of posistion.

I have many post on this board for troubleshooting signaling issues such as this form the Left Hand Lid Lock. This forum is not really geared up for DIY repairs. If you want some help post back and I will have you try anothe forum I post in.... That forum has a link to the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual a real must have if you are going to DIY and save some money.

Dryer will not spin

Maybe I can help with the Washer if it's a FA6800A/FAV9800A. Is it one of those and why do you feel you need a lid switch? Are you getting OP,OD,FL error codes to the LED display if the machine model is a FAV6800A.....Rich
