Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer

2 Answers

OP Code Machine is stuck with a code of OP. The manual says that the door is open. I'm not the smartest guy out there but I closed the door and the code won't go away. I unplugged it for a few minutes with no luck. Switched the breaker and nothing. Stop or trying to clear the code doesn't work. The wife is pissed because my parents were the last to use the washer.

The problem was the lid switch. Popped the top and opened the wire harness. Black wire had snapped due to corrosion. Re-soldered the wires and closed (& sealed) the assembly. Thank you for your help.

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.

GLTF1240ASO Front Door Won't Lock/Close


Most probably your door lock is damaged. You are not supposed to force it open, you have to wait for at least 2 minutes (or till the lock sign is off) after the wash is over to open the door, never force it.
You can just google your model number and search for parts to obtain it. It is quite possible you can change it yourself. See that the line is disconnected from the mains.

Gateway NV78 laptop turned off and won't reboot.


So reformat a computer that can't access the hard drive, interesting trick. I believe the OP said the machine hangs in limbo with Power Lights on, I assumed the Lights are on, but no one is home, sort of like some of these solutions. Why am I not paid millions of dollars for being the smartest man alive?

My Indesit WIL163 is stuck washing - won't go on


I suspect that the logic board has developed a fault and probably needs replacing. 'Phone your Indesit Service Centre and get an engineer out. I believe a replacement board costs about £100 fitted, but a 12-month service plan paid monthly may be a bit cheaper, and will cover further breakdowns. Unfortunately, these boards are not the most robust or reliable examples of technology.
Turn off the power to the machine; preferably unplug it.
If you can open the door(?), bale out the drum by hand. I don't think there's a pump/filter access panel on this machine, so it's not easy to get the water out. You could try
disconnecting the discharge hose from the pipework, then lower the open end over a washing-up bowl so that the water drains from the drum by gravity. It depends how close to the floor you can get the open end. When enough water has drained, it should be possible to open the door to remove the laundry. Sorry, this may take a while.
Hope this has helped.

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

Dishwasher latch handle is stuck in closed position. The door will not open. How do we get it opened?


I had the same problem and with some pushing and pulling I got the door open again.
TURN OFF THE BREAKER....
Next take all the screws out of the door panel to access the door latch assembly. You will see the handle has plastic tabs that hold it in place which are broken. Order a new assembly and install it.
My problem was getting the wiring harness off of the switches they are clipped on very tightly so I just kept the old ones connected and put them on the new assembly.

Good luck
