Since you have replaced the lid lock mechanism and sticking strong magnets in front of it clears the "lid" error code, the issue is with the lid lock magnet losing its magnetism. The "LD" error indicates long drain problem as indicated in your first posted problem. The sock found plugging the pump outlet must be the cause of the error and should address the problem since it is already removed and the pump is cleared.

Consider replacing the drain pump if the problem is not addressed after everything is cleared or when the drain pump no longer work.

I have maytag neptune tl,i moving3 week ago i do a coneccion and a have a cod en tha machine OP,and dont do nothing.


Sorry should read ""Confirm the model number and the 1st two digits if the serial number and I will see if I can help. Is the machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Any error unbalance codes during the spin cycle like dc or UC? ""


You have lost signaling thru the left hand lid lock or have a lid magnet out of posistion.

With the lid open try placing a magnet over the left hand grey lid bumper with the lid open.

If the OP error code clears then it's a Lid Magnet issue. If the OP error code dosen't clear we need to troubleshoot the Left Hand lid lock or replace. I prefer to troubleshoot further before buying a part. Let me know what you want to do. If you want to troubleshoot/DIY the repair we need to move your issue to a better DIY appliance repair forum. Try the external magnet first and rule out a Lid Magnet out of position issue.

See pics;

See if an external magnet over the left grey lid bumper will clear the OP error code.

What is sensor magnet in LG 6.5 kg washing machine? Recently I got a dE error and when technicians attended, they said, there was problem to closing door lid. To resolve this, technician replaced sensor...


The machine has a small magnet on the front of the lid. There is a sensor (Hall Effect probably) in the electronics block that senses if the magnet is there (lid closed) or not there (lid open). They aren't that well attached and seem to fall off and wind up in the wash, which means they get lost when the washing is being hung out.
The machine will not start without the lid closed you get a dE error code which means the lid is not shut. You can trick it temporarily by putting a small round magnet inside the front housing if you don't have a proper replacement, as the real one needs to be quite strong. Not sure what they cost, my husband just did the 'trick' to our daughters machine, but a small button magnet wasn't strong enough to trip the sensor from the lid position, he had to stick it right next to the sensor.
Shouldn't be that dear, you can buy blocks of very powerful neodymium magnets in varying sizes for under ten dollars.

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.

Kenmore calypso washer short cycles on rinse/spin cycle and gives OP and FS error codes when trying to force a drain in diagnostic mode.


Magnetic reed switch on left side below the gray rubber bumper, shown here...



http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=1033130&PPStack=1



Release two spring clips in front between main top and front panel using putty knife. Lift the main top and access the left and right door locks here.



To access and see if the magnet is in place, remove the dispenser from lid.

Gently pry the bottom of the plastic inner lid toward you then down. This will let you see if the magnet is in place on the right front corner of the inner lid.

Seems to be a common problem with this washer. Apparently, the lid isn't completely watertight and allows water to get into this switch corroding the contacts and the wires.

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.

Whirlpool stack washer will fill but will not progress to rest of cycle


It sounds like the lid switch is not making contact. It is a magnet located on the lid so that when you close the lid, the magnet pulls the switch closed. Make sure the magnet is still on the lid. If you washer lid will not stay open on most models, the magnet is gone because this is the same magnet that pulls the lid switch closed. If you can find where it goes, find a strong magnet and place it on the top inside rim where the lid goes when closed. Turn the machine on, let fill with water. Once this is complete and the machine should start. Take the magnet and move it around the rim until the unit starts running. If you can't get it to run, most likely the switch it's self is bad. I think you will find the magnet on the lid is gone and the machine will start running once you pass a magnet over the place where it goes. If so you will need to replace the part.

"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

Kenmore elite oasis, lid-lock mechanism


mk, there is two ways to work around the lid. The lid lock works by magnet. If you have a large magnet laying around you can fool the mechanism and run the washer without it locking. You will have to find the spot near the center front and experiment until you get the right spot. The second way is to lift the whole top assy. About 3 or 4 inches in from each end where the top seperates from the bottom there will be a clip that you can push in on and lift the whole top. Now these clips are real strong so you need a good putty knife. Pull up on the top as you are pushing in. This way you can add your stuff while doing a normal wash. The codes are for diagnosis, testing different functions of the machine, it wouldn't do you any good for what you are trying to do. Catriver..post back
