Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the top is actually closed but it shows open then you most likely have a microswitch or wiring issue, a switch being more likely. The module that controls top operation has to see all components in the correct position during opening and closing and if something isn't in the correct state then it will suspend operation. It monitors components using microswitches.
If you don't see any physically issues then the first thing that should be done is see what fault codes are setting and then most likely electrical testing will need to be done from there.
