Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Washer does not operate.

Washer senses "open lid" even when it is closed. So it will not run.

Is the Machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A the machines supported in this forum.

If so for the FAV6800A is the LED displaying an "OP" error code?

If it is do you want to DIY the fix?

Just in case you are posting for a FAV6800A or FAV9800A machine some links and let me know if you need help with the above machines.

We are getting the oL message even when we wash a light load or even run the machine empty. The machine seems to be spinning, but cuts off with the "oL" message sometime between the rinse and...


Hi

Error OL means that the washer has sensed an overload (OL) condition. It can also be a false error code appearing due to faulty lid switch. Sometimes this error code appears when lid is not closed/opened properly. You can check the lid switch for any disconnections, if the connection to lid switch is fine then use a multimeter to check the continuity of the lid switch. If the lid switch is fine then there is a piece of clothing stuck between inner basket and the outer tub. Disconnect the washer from the power outlet and then try moving the drum with your hand and check if it turns freely or is offering any resistance. If it is not moving freely then it is due to rusted drive shaft or motor. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

I just purchased a Maytag load-sensing washer and I HATE IT. If you open the lid after it begins running, it will fill all the way up when the lid is closed, regardless of how few clothes are in the load....


Unfortunately legality no one can tell you how to bypass the lid switch, however I do sympathize with your feelings.This was their attempt to save water by having only a partial fill if you were doing a small load.by auto sensing the load. In my opinion this design Waste water because they took away the manual water level control and created an electronic nightmare.....You might just have to get use to adding all your clothes and detergent close the lid and no peeking Sorry I could not redesign this machine

I HAVE A L 5 ERROR CODE ON MY WASHER AND IT WILL NOT WORK WE HAD THE WATER PUMP REPLACED BUT IT STILL HAVE THE SAME MESSAGE ITS A CALYPSO WHIRLPOOL


L5 means it cannot sense the lid open or closed.
Lid switch is likely bad.

This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch. The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition. This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open. Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

My Roper Washer RTW43405Q0 won't spin.


For the washer to operate the lid must be fully closed, the timer must be pulled out, and the water must be drained.
The main causes for not spinning are:
  • Lid partially or completely open
  • Lid or other object has hit the timer knob and turned the washer off
  • Lid not locked (by the way, not on all washers) and may be not draining.

    Make sure the lid is completely closed. Make sure that no clothing is in the lid area.

    Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.



    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Hope this works.....

    The washer will not spin out but if i lift the lid and reclose it it starts to spin


    there is switch which senses whether the lid is closed or open. its either sticky or loose on its mounting. Or the portion of the lid which operates this switch is cracked / damaged.

    Code OP means lid is open. If it really isn't, then the problem is with the switch that sense whether the lid is shut or not. Could be bad switch or bad connection.
