There is a right lid lock and a left lid lock which did you change? The left lid lock is a lock and the reed switch which tells the machine control the lid is closed and can start the cycle.

After pushing start, lid locking light flashes, clicks like it is locking but is not locked and nothing happens but it keeps clicking


Sounds like the lid lock itself is bad, be sure to check the connections at the control board. There should be a tech sheet inside the front panel towards the top left. This can help you check the error codes and wiring diagrams.

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.

The lid lock light won't stop blinking.


LID LOCK FAULT
Fault is displayed if Lid Lock has not moved into locked position or motor cannot be powered.
Lid is not closed completely due to interference.
Check for lock interference with lock striker.
Wash media buildup (detergent, lint, etc.) is preventing the lock mechanism from sliding.
Main control detects open lid switch when attempting to lock.
Main control cannot determine if lid lock is in a locked state.

Perform the following checks if the washer does not lock (or unlock).
1. Perform the Lid Lock test under Manual Test Mode on page 9. The following steps assume that this step was unsuccessful.
2. Check lid lock mechanism for obstruction or binding. Repair as necessary.

The lock light flashes and the machine continues to try and lock even though it appears to be locked...stops filling Maytag neptune TL


Are you up for troubleshooting? I will try to keep it low tech.


Do both Lid locks remain locked (you can't open the lid ) and you just have the Locked LED is flashing?


I'm assuming if you hit the OFF key the machine will unlock is that correct?


If so I feel you have lost signaling thru the lid locks possible do to corrision. We would start on the Left Hand lid lock which would require removal and very carefully opening up the case halves of that lid lock.

Here is a pic of what we might find inside...... some corrision;

Maytag neptune tl washer lock not working my husband bought it used so I have no manuals I was able to run a load blaech water to clean it but now it just keeps flashing "od" I've left it...


If you are still having issues; The OD alarm is signaled by the control board when it has not see a lid open signal from the left lid lock for three completed wash cycles. Issue could be a lid magnet out of position or corrosion issues with the left lid lock and or plug connecting to the left lid lock. Take a look at his post. It’s for OP alarm issues associated with the left lid lock but it will give you a start point for troubleshooting. Post back if you have questions. Links for the the SM and parts for the Left Hand Lid Lock replacement info are in that post.
