Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
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.
FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
