    Rich,
    I disassembled the whole left hand lid lock and cleaned all the contacts. I tested with the ohm meter and feel everything is ok except I can't seem to get juice through the reed switch. It remains open. I noticed it operates on 12v dc. Is that correct? Can I test it with a 12v power source to close it? I put the lid lock back on the machine and it didn't change anything by cleaning it. It must be the reed switch or the lid lock isn't my problem. Thank you.

    Marty,
    If you have the Left Hand Lid Lock on the work bench with and with an external magnet you are testing for continuity thru the Left Hand Lid Lock with your Ohm meter. When you bring a magnet near the Magnetic Reed Relay it should close and give you a path via the wiring harness for 12VDC back to the Control Board. This 12VDC can only be measured if your DVM common lead is referenced to the 12VDC common on the Control Board not Washer chassis ground. This 12VDC is signaling voltage for the washer Control Board input for “Lid is Open” and “Lid Is Closed” I’ll bet if you open the washer lid and press the Start key pad button you don’t take a “OP” error code for Lid is open.

    Let see if I can post a Pic and give you the Pin out to test for proper closing of the magnetic reed relay in the Left Hand Lid Lock on the work bench. FIXYA has become a real pain to post Pics’s. If the Pic comes thru I will give you additional info. The most common problem is severe corrosion in the Left Hand lid lock (due to proximity of Bleach Dispenser Reservoir). Most “OD” error codes are caused by the Black Lead on the magnetic reed relay in the left Hand Lid Lock. Did you remove the top cover of the Left Hand Lid Lock to observe in side? I will post a pick if I can. If not I will try to find a previous post I have done on FIXYA for other owners as you and I to show how to remove the Left Hand lid lock top cover. You have to be careful not to break off the lid mounting tabs on the Lid Lock.

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.

Thanks
