Replace just the lid lock assembly to start with and see how it goes. Lids are quite expensive and don't usually need replacing. You can always get a lid later if you still have problems.

Turn power off AT THE WALL,under the wash bowl Spray some wd40 on to the pump at both ends, while this may stop it for a while. Your pump may well be on its way out. you should replace for a new one. bad pumps can cause more problems problems .

Hi, well this usually happens when the main controller unit fails, if you want to DIY then you first must obtain a service manual, and work through the troubleshooting steps, and use the manual to then obtain the parts numbers for spares. But however most likely the very best thing to do will be to get it looked at by a professional, call in a pro, and ONLY first ask for a "Quote" as to potential costings and go from there, this really is the best course of action.

What is hd code????


Hi Peter, If I understand your question correctly, you are asking what the code "HD" means for your machine. I am unable to find the code "HD", however, here is a list of the codes for these Maytag models, perhaps one looks similar to "HD". Hopefully this answers your question!

Washer displaying code messages
- "LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.
- "Ld" (Washer is taking too long to drain water from the wash tub)
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Is the drain hose installed properly? See "Connect the Drain Hose." Press PAUSE/CANCEL
to clear display.
- "uL" (Unbalanced Load)
If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while running an imbalanced
load correction routine at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code
remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open
lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press START.
- "oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill and begin the wash cycle. If
the washer is overloaded, it will drain any water and detergent that was added during the
fill. To correct the overload, remove several items and add detergent. Close lid and press
START.
- "Sd" (Suds Detected)
Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High
Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions.
If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds
reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine
removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and
the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your
desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.
- "lid" (Lid Opened)
Is the lid open? Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10
minutes, water in the wash tub will drain.
- "HC" (Cold and Hot hoses switched)
This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the cold and hot water
inlet hoses are switched. See "Connect the Inlet Hoses."
- "dL" (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid keeping it from closing. Press
PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "dU" (Door/Lid cannot unlock)
Is there excessive weight on the lid, such as a basket of laundry? Excessive weight will
keep the lid from unlocking. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "F##" code
Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear code. Press START. If code appears again, call for
service.

When I push the start button I get a beep and the message is: "od" and the washing machine doesn't start


The FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.


The OD alarm means the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Control Board has not sensed a lid open condition for three completed wash cycles even though you opened the lid.

You have lost signaling from the Left Lid Lock back to the Control Board.

What I would do next is remove the Left Lid Lock and very carefully open it up. See page 34 for removal steps. Just remove the left lid lock don’t worry about the right. Once you have the Left Lid Lock in your hand you need to open up the case halves.

I found it is very easy to break off the enclosure locking tabs. I use a fine flat jewelers screw driver and X-acto blade and work around the locking tabs to open the case halves. I wedge small paper clip ends or tooth picks in the case halves as I work around the tabs. Once the case halves are open I believe you will find corrosion issues such as seen in my pic’s.

7c2b931.jpg
You can clean up the corrosion with WD-40 and finger nail
emery boards.

Hit the plug end with a couple of squrits if WD-40.

I believe you will find the black lead has broken loose from one end of the magnetic reed relay. It can be soldered back on. If you don’t want to deal with that you can order a replacement. Left Hand Lid Lock.

Let me know if you have questions…. Rich

Lid switch need to replace switch or fuse, is the whole switch in the lid ???


Hey fireball1711 I'm at work on lunch break I give you a few some info to get ya started. The Left Lid Lock has big time problems with corrosion issues with it?s proximity to the bleach dispenser. Are you throwing an "OP" or ?OD? error when you hit the start button? Take a look at these links below to get you started. You will find a replacement part number for the Left Hand Lid lock the Service Manual and a parts look up links. The common console errors that stop the washer from working are ?OP? & ?OD? caused by an open lead on the magnetic reed relay, lid magnet out of position and corrosion on the male pins and plug assembly. The last alarm is the ?FL? error code for failed to lock again corrosion issues produce these faults most of the time. Don?t worry about the Right Hand Lid lock. I would disconnect it?s plug, tape of the plug end. It simplifies troubleshooting. You only need Left Hand Lid lock to operate for the washer to work as designed. If you can give me the details on the Console error codes you display that will help. Try the tips I mention in the links below and post back with any questions. I can dedicate more time to your issue after work tonight. OD Alarm OP Alarm Good Luck??. Rich

"od" alarm on neptune tl


Hey geonkarla637,

Good job on troubleshooting, let’s focus on the Left Hand Lid Lock. It has the dual signaling functions to allow the Machine to operate as designed. The first signaling function is “Lid is Open/Lid Closed” signaling the “OP” error code for lid is OPEN if you press the Start button at the Start of a cycle or during a pause and resume portion of a cycle and “OD” error code if the machine has not seen the lid open for three completed machine cycles your issue. The second signaling function is “Failed to Lock” the “FL” error code.

Because the Control Board programming is looking for the contact open/closure transitions at appropriate times of the wash cycle from the Magnetic Reed Relay in the left lid lock. I see no way to fool it by bypassing the magnetic reed relay in the Left Hand Lid lock assembly and have the machine work as designed.

What I would do next is remove the Left Lid Lock and very carefully open it up. I found it is very easy to break off the enclosure locking tabs. I use a fine flat jewelers screw driver and X-acto blade and work around the locking tabs to open the case halves. I wedge small paper clip ends in the case halves as I work around the tabs. Again I stress they break off in a heartbeat take it slow and no coffee for 24hrs before you begin this operation …. (:

How do the black and red wire on the reed relay look? If they look like this I would take a low wattage soldering iron fine pencile tip 25W no more than 60W iron and solder back on the broken end if that has happened. If you don’t want to deal with that you need to replace the Left Hand Lid Lock .

fce1267.jpg

268e05d.jpg
I would also use a drop or two of WD-40 on the slide switch in that signals “Lid Is Locked”. I’m going to include a pic of my attempt to document the Left Hand Lid Lock Control Board inputs and signaling outputs. I have labeled the Pins on that lock assembly for my reference, I cannot correlate them one for one to the schematic packed in the machine console. I have measured and watched the +12VDC input and output transitions with my DVM for the Lid Is Closed and Lid is Locked on the Control Board at connector P3. If your Left Hand Lid Lock is signaling correctly out of the assembly then I would trace the +12VDC signaling back to the control board. From your previous troubleshooting you have insured there is no corrosion on the male Left Hand Lid Lock assembly and the mating plug end.

Please let me know what you find, I hope this helps; I’m a rookie owner still learning how to troubleshoot/repair the machine.

As a side note I unplugged the Right Hand Lid Lock and taped up the plug end. I would never replace that lid lock if it failed my choice; I find it helps to simplify troubleshooting.
Good Luck …………..Rich

"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

My washer starts and stops a few seconds later with a FL code


Hello donaldwoulla,
I’m an owner of a FAV6800AWW not a GURU, this forum automated rating system is way too generous, I will try to help. Do you feel OK to try some troubleshooting? The following troubleshooting assumes you want try a possible DIY fix.
“FL” code is Failed to lock, we will try a few troubleshooting steps. The following test will be done by selecting the Spin Only cycle. First test will be done in service mode.
1. This is from SM; Press Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for 3 seconds to activate Service Mode. Access Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key. Display shows “ot” and the lid locks should actuate locking the lid. Does this happen, do you take the “FL” fail code in this process? Hit OFF button to cancel this test.

2. 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.

3. With spin only cycle selected and the lid closed press the Start Button do both lid locks try to close and lock the lid? From your initial post I believe you throw a “FL” to the display very quickly, that is the left and right lid locks do not actuate several times before the control board displays the “FL” fail code. Is that correct?

4. This step requires you to raise the top off the washer you will need to the move the washer out several inches and you should have a helper available to hold the lid up for you. Unplug the washer from the 120VAC outlet. Use this info and the FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual to assist you. 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. We are going to reseat the Left Lid Lock plug a couple of times into the Left Lid Lock. We are checking to see if there might be some corrosion on the plug contacts. Take a look at page 34 of the SM. Top right of the page Lid Lock/Reed Switch Removal where the persons thumb is. This is the plug we want to remove and reseat a few times. It may be difficult to do remove so be careful. Mine was very difficult to remove the first time. This lid lock is near the bleach dispenser and other owners have had corrosion issues with this left lock causing issues. After doing this and you have reseated the plug into the left lid lock a few times power up the washer and give it a try.

Just to let you know don’t worry about the right lid lock, it’s signaling and control functions are in parallel with the left lid lock. I’ve had mine disconnected since mid Dec. The left lid lock is the important lid lock. It has the dual functions of signaling the control board that the lid is open/closed by the magnetic reed relay in that lid lock and the lid is locked by contact closure back to the control board in that lid lock. If this doesn’t help resolve the issue we will try removing the left lid lock to inspect if you feel OK to continue. Good luck. Rich

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.
