    Lid will not stay open by itself when adding/removing clothes. Is there a spring mechanism that is worn and needs replacing?

Problem may be with door switch and not the door lock. If you are able you could try to locate the switch and jump the two wires together to see if the od code goes away. Even if it works you should not leave it that way but get a new switch and replace the faulty one.

I’ll try to help I’ll try to help looks like you are into some troubleshooting my kind of forum member.
The signaling for the Lid is latched the “Locked” Led comes from the Left lid lock here is the part number 25001048 and a link. I would start by removing the Left Han Lid Lock and inspect for corrosion as I go thru in this post.
See that post will get you started.
I discuss the “OD” error code but troubleshooting will start here with that Left Hand Lid Lock. The FAV6800A and FAV9800A have big time corrosion issues with that Lid Left hand Lid Lock with it location next to the Bleach Dispenser.

MY MAYTAG NEPTUNE MODEL FAV6800AWQ KEEPS DISPLAYING THE LETTERS OP


You have lost signaling thru the Left Hand lid Lock. The washer has not see the lid go closed thru the signaling with the magnetic reed relay in the Left Hand Lid Lock.


You could have a Lid Magnet out of position or severe corrosion. You can place a large magnet over the Left bumper like this and see if the OP error code clears;

See this post for troubleshooting the OP error code Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting I go over OD error code troubleshooting but you troubleshoot the issue the same way for the OP error code.

If the Lid Magnet is not out of position you may have an open circuit thru the Magnetic Reed Relay as shown in the Pics of this link Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting.

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;

ba0e933.jpg
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.

Hello inezfragala,

If you are only throwing the OD error code to the Console and you can’t clear it I feel you have a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay switch or severe pin/plug corrosion in the left hand lid lock. See the pic’s be low. Next Question do you want to DIY or call in a service repair company.


The FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

If you want to DIY the fix I would start by removing the Left Hand Lid Lock. Follow the Service Manual page 34 Lid Lock/Reed Switch Removal.

The technicians thumb is on the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly. The Left Hand Lid Lock assembly is not a sealed very well and is subject to corrosion issues with its location near the bleach dispenser. If you are a DIY’er you won’t have any problem getting to the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly.

Unplug the 120VAC to your machine and follow the manual to raise the washer top from the base. The mating plug can be very difficult to remove from the assembly. Remove the 5/16 sheet metal screw holding the lid lock to the washer top. Once loose you can press the tabs and pull the mating plug from the socket pins in the Lid Lock. Be careful when you open the case halves of the Left Hand Lid lock assembly it’s very easy to damage those retaining tabs. Work very slowly with a small flat blade jewelers screwdriver or similar. If you have heavy corrosion issues you can clean up with WD-40 and some finger nail emery file board on the pins in the Left Hand Lid Lock.

If you need to replace the left lid lock here is the part number 25001048 or here another link.

Check to see if the Black and Red wires are on the magnetic reed relay switch solder connections have not broken loose from corrosion. They can be re-soldered back on if they have broken loose. If you have heavy corrosion in the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly and can’t clean up to clear the error code I would replace the Left Lid Lock. There is a possibility that the signaling is lost from the Left lid Lock plug back threw the machines wiring harness. This would require advanced troubleshooting using a DVM to trace +12VDC from the Control Board Back to the Control Board thru the L.H. Lid Lock. Don’t go near the Control Board with a DVM set to measure resistance/continuity you could destroy your Control Board.

Big time corrision issues with L.H. Lid Lock.

Broken wire on magnetic reed relay will cause OD alarm and you won't be able to clear.

This how the L.H. Lid Lock should look.

I posted a problem with a Neptune top load washer


The lid lock is bad part # is left side  25001048 runs around $80,the problem tends to stem from the dispensers water and bleach work their way into the switch and I have never had much luck cleaning them out and getting them to work.. and that is left hand side as you are facing the machine.
