You can release the washer top from the base with a putty knife

See page 33 of the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual

Your machine is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A correct? If so you have Left Hand Lid Lock signaling issues to the Control Board.....are you the DIY type of owner? If so I will help you to issue resolution.

Mine says OP even though the locked signal is on too! i ahve tried WD 40, unplug and plug power on but do not seem to succed. I unlatched the door open and even jiggled with the locks. nothing doing.


Have you placed some external magnets on the Left grey
bumper and see if you can clear the OP error cord. I assume you powered cycle the machine.

If that doesn't clear the OP error code it would be time to;

1. Confirm the 12VDC on the control board is good.

2. If good see if 12VDC is making it back to Conn_3 Pin 9 down to the LF Hand Lid Lock and thru the Magnetic Reed relay back to the Control Board Conn_3 Pin 9.

Before you go thru all that did you open the Left Lid Lock and make sure the Black lead on the magnetic reed relay did not break off from corrosion issues. I know I have a number of post on this board related to troubleshooting the left hand lid lock..................Rick

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.

I have an error code OP what should i do


You could have a lid magnet out of position. Quick check for that is to place a magnet over the left bumper with the lid raised and see if the OP error code clears.

If it does you need to remove the inner panel of the lid to access the lid magnet see page 32 of the Service Manual for the procedure.

If the external magnet doesn’t clear the OP error code you will have to start troubleshooting the Left Hand Lid Lock. You could have severe corrosion with and an open lead on the magnetic reed switch in the Left Hand Lid lock. Link to replacement Left Hand Lid Lock

See this post Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting for further info. I discuss troubleshooting the OD error code but you troubleshoot the OP error code the same way……Rich

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.

The washer is stuck locked. When turned on it shows OP where the minutes are!! PLEASE HELP !!



Don’t force the lid open and break the lid locks.

Here is the Service Manual and parts look up;

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Use this procedure for releasing the washer top from the base;

Un plug the 120VAC power cord to the washer.

To raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point.


Here is the pic from page 33.c4f9327.jpg

This will get the clothes out.

With the washer top raised gently push to Left and Right lid lock latches to outside of the lid the unlock position.

You can now lower the washer top to the base.

Do you want to DIY the OP error code?

The OP error code could be caused by a Lid Magnet out of position. To do a quick check with the lid open power up the washer. Do you have the OP error code showing? If so take a large magnet and place it over the grey left lid bumper and see if the OP error code will clear the LED display. A Pic for reference;


If that doesn’t clear the OP error code we would need to do deeper troubleshooting. Are you up for that? Let me know……Rich

Maytag Neptune top load. I am getting an od code


Be sure to unplug the washer before attempting any troubleshooting. On the Maytag Neptune the "OP" code indicates a problem at the door switch. These washers have a common problem associated with this code. The door isn't completely waterproof and allows water to get into the area where the lid switch is, corroding the electrical contacts and wires. Use a putty knife or screwdriver to open the top of the machine to access the door locks. Look for any broken or corroded wiring connections and reseat and clean as necessary. Test the switch using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty switch. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

"OP" ERROR CODE


Take a look at this post, it’s for troubleshooting an OD alarm but you can follow the same troubleshooting path to see if you have a lid magnet out of position or a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay located in the left lid lock. The lid magnet operates the magnetic reed relay to signal the lid is closed/the lid is open. Try an external magnet on the left bumper and see if that clears the OP error code with the lid open. If it doesn’t I would try reseating the left lid lock plug (possible corrosion issues). If that doesn’t clear the OP alarm it would be time to pull the life lid lock out of the machine and inspect for a broken lead on the magnetic reed relay or other corrosion issues with the left lid lock. The left lid lock is in a location near the bleach dispenser. Links to the SM are in that post and a link for parts look up. Post back if you have questions

OP Code


ONLY O9NE QUICK SOLUTION. UNPLUG THE WASHER THEN LOCATE THE 2 WIRES CONNECTED TO THE DOOR LIMIT SWITCH. BRIDGE THEM OUT CAREFULLY THEN PLUG WASHER BACK ON AND TRY. IF IT CONTINUES, CALL A TECH AS BOARD COULD BE AN ISSUE.
