Simpson washing machine 7.5kg 22s750m


Have the lid lock adjusted and always check that the bowl load is balanced. What you have is the machine is reading the lid as open and the spin will not occur until the lid lock reads closed.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the lid solenoid/lock or the 'lid closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,

I have a Maytag Neptune top load washer. When I attempt to start a cycle, a code appears (od) on the control panel followed by three beeps and will not operate. I've attempted to follow the procedure in...


I’m and owner as you and will toss out this info.

The OD alarm means the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW Control Board has not sensed a lid open condition for three completed wash cycles. You can unplug the washer 120VAC power and plug back in and see if that will give you three more wash cycle before extending the OD alarm again. This would only be a temp fix. You have probably lost Lid is Closed/Lid is Open signaling back to the Control Board from the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly.

Take a look at this post and see if will help you repair the issue. I have some pic's and links in that post that may help. You will need the Service Manual for working on this machine.

I use external magnets over the left lid bumper to accurate the magnetic operated reed relay switch located in the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly to check for signaling operation of that magnetic reed relay back to the Control Board. I’m going to start out by having you check out the Magnet Reed Relay signaling from the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly.

With the Washer Lid open start a quick wash cycle, you should signal an OP alarm to the console do you? If so now close the washer lid the OP alarm should clear if the Lid Magnet is not out of position. If it doesn’t clear place couple magnets on the left bumper as I show in this post. If the OP alarm now clears then the lid magnet is out of position and the manual will show you its location to repair.

If you still trigger an OD alarm then it’s time to inspect the Left Lid Lock Plug and assembly for corrosion issues. See Page 34 of the Service Manual. The technicians thumb is on the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly. The Left Hand Lid Lock assembly is not a sealed very well and is subject to corrosion issues with its location near the bleach dispenser. If you are a DIY’er you won’t have any problem getting to the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly. The mating plug can be very difficult to remove from the assembly watch your knuckles. Be careful when you open the case halves of the Left Hand Lid lock assembly it is very easy to damage those retaining tabs. Unplug the 120VAC to your machine and follow the manual to raise the washer top from the base. If you have heavy corrosion issues you can clean up with contact cleaner ( I use WD-40) and some emery cloth/fine grit sandpaper. Check to see if the Black and Red wires are on the magnetic reed relay switch solder connections have not broken loose from corrosion. They can be re-soldered back on if they have broken loose. I don’t believe they have if you are not showing an OP alarm at the start of the wash cycle. You may want to squirt some WD-40 into the into the Left Hand Lid Lock plug and re-seat a few times if you have heavy corrosion in the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly as seen in the Pic.

If you use a DVM/Ohm meter to check the magnetic reed relay switch make sure you unseat/pull the Left Hand Lid Lock Plug from the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly to isolate the signaling leads going back to the Control Board, we don’t want to kill the Control Board with the Ohm Meter. I would only break out the DVM if I had to start troubleshooting signaling back thru the wiring harness to the control boart inputs and +12VDC output to the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly. The Control Board would have to be isolated fom the Ohm Meter measurements. I recommend not using a DVM/Ohm meter at this point of the troubleshooting process.

Here is a link for the Left Hand Lid Lock if you feel it would be easier to replace the assembly. Left Lid Lock Other suppliers will have the part I like these folks. Post back if you have additional questions.

"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

The OD code will not clear



The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference

od alarm means the Control Board has not seen a lid open condition for three complete wash cycles. I suspect the left lid lock and or lid magnet issue.

First check to see if you can clear the od error with an external magnet as shown in this picture.

Pic of left bumper and a external magnet;

If it does then you have a lid magnet out of position. You will need go thru the process to disassemble the lid and check that the lid magnet is in position. First picture on page 35 of the SM shows the lid magnet.



You could have an issue with the left lid lock with corrosion and a possible open lead on the reed relay in the left lid lock. See the broken black wire connection as shown in this Pic

37f3013.jpg

In the interim you could power down the machine by removing the 120VAC power cord from you wall receptacle then re-power up. That may give you three more wash cycles before the od alarm is triggered again. If the magnetic reed relay lead is open as shown this may cause a OP alarm to the console.

Maytag Neptune keeps giving us the OP signal


Hello Kristi,
If its FAV6800A/FAV9800A try placing couple 1” dia magnets or similar magnet on the left bumper of the machine and see if that will clear the the “OP” lid open alarm, see pic attached. If that clears the alarm the lid magnet may have moved out of position in the inner lid. See page 33 of the FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual for its location. If that doesn’t clear the “OP” alarm remove 120VAC to the machine and try reseating the left lid lock plug into the left lid lock a few times to possible clear corrosion causing loss of signaling from the left lid lock to the control board Lid Is Closed input. See page 33 and 34 of the SM for pics if the left lid lock and lid magnet. I recommend surge protection on the120VAC outlet powering the machine to help protect the washer control board. Good luck Rich.
Place some external magnets on left bumper and see if that will clear the "OP" alarm.

Try reseating the left lid lock plug into the left lid lock. Be careful, it may be difficult to remove for the 1st time.

Will not start up and show code 0d


Hello kc59mail ,

For the FAV6800A the od alarm means the Control Board has not seen a lid open condition for three complete wash cycles. I suspect the left lid lock.

I think you have a problem with the magnetic reed relay in the left lid lock. If you could try this? I want to make sure you signal an “OP” alarm to the display. Can you select Spin Only cycle with the lid open press start. Do you signal the “OP” alarm lid open to the display? If it does close the lid and the “OP” alarm should clear does it? I’m checking that the lid magnet is in place and the signaling connections are working thru the left lid lock back to the control board.

Let us know what you fin and we will go from there. You could try powering down the machine by removing the 120VAC power cord from you wall receptacle. That may give you three more wash cycles before the od alarm is triggered again.

How do you clear a od error code on a maytag fav6800aww


I agree with fastnhonda troubleshooting. I will just toss out some additional info. I’m an owner like you just trying to troubleshoot from a distance. The OD alarm is signaled by the control board when the control board has not seen a lid open signal from the left lid lock for three completed wash cycles. Could be corrosion issues with the left lid lock and or plug connecting to the left lid lock. If you pull the power plug on the machine then re-power up does the “OD” alarm clear? This might clear the “OD” alarm for three wash cycles. If it does can you do this; open the washer lid and start a Spin Only cycle with the lid open do you throw an OP (Lid Is Open) alarm to the console? If so do you clear the “OP” alarm when you close the lid? I’m checking the signaling functionally of the Left Lid Lock assembly of the magnetic reed relay and lid magnet thru the left lid lock and plug back to the control board.
If no results come from above testing and you want to DIY the repair I would remove the left lid lock (remove the left lid lock as shown on page 34 of the SM) and inspect for corrosion issues as the other forum member speaks to and a possible broken wire connection on the magnetic reed relay. See the red & black wire going to magnetic reed relay switch as shown in the pic. below. Note the black wire is broken away from one end of the magnetic reed relay do to corrosion. If you take apart the left lid lock the tabs holding the case halves together break off very easy so be careful on disassembly. I would not replace the right lid lock just yet. Removing the plugs on the lid locks is difficult so be careful. I would remove the left lid lock and inspect and clean up wih WD-40 if there are corrosion issues such as shown below or a broken wire (re-solder) on the magnitic reed relay. If this doesn’t resolve the “OD” alarm I would then replace the left lid lock only at this time. The right lid lock is not needed for normal washer operation.

Disconnect the washer power cord.
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.
