Od error code

The Neptune Od code will come up when the unit does not see the door opened before starting another cycle following a completed cycle. Simply opening the door and closing it again will remove this code until the same incidence happens again. So if you are looking to rewash a load of cloths you must first open the door then close it before you can start the machine over. Pleazer Appliance...

Hi! I have a maytag and it gives me OD error and it doesn't wash. As I push the button it gives OD on the digital screen. What should I do?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'OD' could stand for 'open door. If so there is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have od on my control panel what does it mean


The OD "fault" code on the display means "OPENED DOOR". This does not mean the machine thinks the door is open, but it has not recognised that the door was opened prior to starting a wash cycle. This could be because you filled it, then turned it off before turning it back on to run the cycle. Often you can clear this "code" by simply opening and closing the door again and starting the wash cycle as normal. If this doesn't work then there may be a fault in the door lock switch or the control board.

Hope this helps.

Washer won't start. Display shows "od"?

od is an open door error if the door is closed then you would have to replace the door switch or the wiring that goes to the door switch first try to open and close the door and make sure it seats properly in the small hasp type holder if the error code still persists then check the wiring to the switch and if the wiring looks like everything is connected well then you would have to order a new door switch i hope this helps in your appliance situation and please remember to rank this solution if you have any more questions please message me back. Have a great day

Hi! getting od error and waher will not let me start any cycle

Hello, the "od"error you getting means the control did not detect that the door was opened between washes. Try opening and then closing the door again and if the error message is still present, there may be a problem in the door switch mechanism, the electronic control or the wiring between the two.
