And I bet you thought those foreign machines where better made , right?

Get a new magnet from a parts supplier, or mfg (In Korea) and reinstall in the right place. Cross your fingers.

Check the lid cover. At the edge, there is a plastic housing some sort of a magnet. This is the magnetic sensor for lid cover open protection.
If the magnet is not there, place a magnet at the position on the washer where the housing will come in contact with the washer when lid is close.

What is sensor magnet in LG 6.5 kg washing machine? Recently I got a dE error and when technicians attended, they said, there was problem to closing door lid. To resolve this, technician replaced sensor...


The machine has a small magnet on the front of the lid. There is a sensor (Hall Effect probably) in the electronics block that senses if the magnet is there (lid closed) or not there (lid open). They aren't that well attached and seem to fall off and wind up in the wash, which means they get lost when the washing is being hung out.
The machine will not start without the lid closed you get a dE error code which means the lid is not shut. You can trick it temporarily by putting a small round magnet inside the front housing if you don't have a proper replacement, as the real one needs to be quite strong. Not sure what they cost, my husband just did the 'trick' to our daughters machine, but a small button magnet wasn't strong enough to trip the sensor from the lid position, he had to stick it right next to the sensor.
Shouldn't be that dear, you can buy blocks of very powerful neodymium magnets in varying sizes for under ten dollars.

There is a magnet in/under the lid on the left hand side inside a plastic housing. I also got a second hand machine in which the magnet had totally broken down due to corrosion. You can test if this is the problem by placing a magnet where this magnet would be positioned when lid closed. Replace magnet

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.

Whirlpool stack washer will fill but will not progress to rest of cycle


It sounds like the lid switch is not making contact. It is a magnet located on the lid so that when you close the lid, the magnet pulls the switch closed. Make sure the magnet is still on the lid. If you washer lid will not stay open on most models, the magnet is gone because this is the same magnet that pulls the lid switch closed. If you can find where it goes, find a strong magnet and place it on the top inside rim where the lid goes when closed. Turn the machine on, let fill with water. Once this is complete and the machine should start. Take the magnet and move it around the rim until the unit starts running. If you can't get it to run, most likely the switch it's self is bad. I think you will find the magnet on the lid is gone and the machine will start running once you pass a magnet over the place where it goes. If so you will need to replace the part.

Maytag Neptune keeps giving us the OP signal


Hello Kristi,
If its FAV6800A/FAV9800A try placing couple 1” dia magnets or similar magnet on the left bumper of the machine and see if that will clear the the “OP” lid open alarm, see pic attached. If that clears the alarm the lid magnet may have moved out of position in the inner lid. See page 33 of the FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual for its location. If that doesn’t clear the “OP” alarm remove 120VAC to the machine and try reseating the left lid lock plug into the left lid lock a few times to possible clear corrosion causing loss of signaling from the left lid lock to the control board Lid Is Closed input. See page 33 and 34 of the SM for pics if the left lid lock and lid magnet. I recommend surge protection on the120VAC outlet powering the machine to help protect the washer control board. Good luck Rich.
Place some external magnets on left bumper and see if that will clear the "OP" alarm.

Try reseating the left lid lock plug into the left lid lock. Be careful, it may be difficult to remove for the 1st time.

Telmann washing machine TEL6TL


Telemann TEL6tl E2 Problem

E2 on screen means the lid is not closing properly and thus not activating the (hidden) switch that prevents the machine from spinning while the lid is up.

The lid switch in this model is not a direct contact switch between lid and switch , but it switches on and off due to a MAGNET embedded in the lid on the left hand side near the front. You will see a small indentation where the magnet SHOULD BE. My magnet had fallen off, so the lid could not activate the operation switch. I had lost the original magnet( about 1cm X 2cm) so glued another into place.

Machine is now fully operational again, and the job cost .78c.

If your magnet is still in place, the E2 fault could lay with the switch itself , which is fixed to the underside of the top casing of the machine near the front right hand side of the lid cavity. The switch measures 1cm X 3cm heavily black tape insulated. Access is gained by popping the 2 X2cm discs at front top of machine and releasing the 2 small philips screws here and a further 2 at the back top of machine. This operation of replacing the switch is best left to an electrician or washing machine specialist.

Hope that helps

Place a piece of magnetic material at the edge of the lid, for the wf-s6697tc model.
Standing in front of the washer, it is slightly off centre to the right (at the edge where the lid covers, space between the wording speedy soak & fuzzy). If you pay attention to the lid, you might notice some brownish rust stain.
This is where they place the magnet.
