SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Error COde "nd"

I had the exact same problem. nd code (no-drain) at the end of the cycle and when I opened the door the machine was still full of water. I took the back panel off the washer and disconnected the drain hose from the pump. (You're going to get quite a bit of water gushing out at you so be prepared with towels or a shop vac.) At this point you should see a little rubber disc over the end of the section you just exposed on the pump. This is a little drain flap. Just lift it up and you should be able to see into the pump a little bit. At this point I poked around in there with my finger and found a hair pin stuck in the pump! I wasn't able to get it out from this end of the pump so I disconnected the big rubber boot which connects the wash drum to the pump. Then I was able to twist the pump (counter clock-wise) and release it from the washer base. I didn't have to disconnect any wires and was then able to see into the other side of the pump and pull the hairpin out. Put everything back together and it's worked fine ever since. I've never even looked inside a washing machine before but it really was really fairly simple. Now my husband really does think I'm a domestic Goddess. I said he should take me out to dinner with the money we saved on a service call!!

There is a manual door release tab in the dispenser area. You have to take the screws out and remove the dispenser to pull the tab and release the door. This is a pretty common issue, if you haven't yet you should contact your Maytag authorized dealer and ask about a more permanent solution. Hope you can get your clothes out.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Error COde "nd"

This is now the 3rd time this has happened. The 1st 2 times it cost me ~$100 to have a technician come in and fix.

This time, I did it easily. For my Maytag Neptune washer, I removed the back panel (2 screws). On the bottom tray is the water discharge pump. On the output side of the pump there is a small cavity under the rubber flapper where a nickle fits perfectly. I removed the nickle, reattached the output drain line. started it up ...

and viola! the problem solved.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune door lock stuck!!!

Try these steps:

1.) Take the washer outside. 2.) Loosen the two screws on the back panel and remove the back panel. The pump sits on the left-side of the opening. There's a black water hose with a metal clamp; 3.) squeeze the metal clamp with your fingers until it's loose enough to slide away from the pump. 4.) Separate the hose from pump and the trapped water will pour out and the door will then open; and 5.) clear any blockage from the drain hose and the pump.

What does error code nd indicate?

Error code nd = Not Draining. Don't know what machine you have, but if you are in any way "handy" you'll manage it. Go for the simple solution first. Filter (usually lower left on the front) is it clear. Do you hear the drain pump going before the spin cycle. The motor that drives the pump is a very simple affair and can stick (or just not work, ever again) when sticking intermittently gives faults like, not going into spin cycle (sometimes), the door not being allowed to open or nd code. Either through the front or up from underneath gives access to the hoses from drum base to pump etc. Check there is no debris blocking any of them. The one from the drum base on some machines reduces in diameter a wee ways from the drum. Creates a nice place for a blockage. Have look on youtube it'll give you confidence, if you need it.
Hope this is of help,

What does the code nd mean on an apartment size front loading stackable kenmore washing machine mean

ND, I would suggest means no drain. If the machine is full of water, it wont let you open the door. Put the drain hose into a bucket to drain the water out and turn off the machine, after a few minutes, the door should unlock. Check the pump or the pump inlet hose for blockages.

Getting nd error at the end of cycle. Machine makes a humming noise for a while and then quits with the nd error. I have checked all the hoses for a blockage but they are all clear.

You will need to remove the drain plug cap and look inside the drain pump.Open the little access door on the front of the machine and unscrew the cap.there will be water that comes out so keep a few towels or shop vac close by.
once you remove the cap check for obstructions and clear them if you do not find any you may need to remove the whole front panel and take the drain boot off the bottom of the tub and look there as well.

Error code ND cannot get door open -soggy clothes inside

The "nd" indicates "no drain" and would usually mean something is wrong with the drain pump.

I would suggest checking the drain pump for obstructions or if it hums or tries to run.

Most likely there is a piece of clothing in the pump or it's bad and needs to be replaced.

The wrong soap might cause excessive suds and create a drain problem.

The image below will help you remove the front panel to access the pump.

Amana front load washer door wont unlock


Nd is drain error.

Check inside the control assembly, you may have a technical diagram with instructions pocked in there.

You will need to check the drain pump hose for blockage.

If that is not enough to fix the problem, then the fault may be the pressure switch, the pump, or the control assembly.

In that case the best thing to do is calling the support number listed in the owners manual to contact Amana.

Olivia just emailed, got charged the $12.95, but did not get her question answered by Charlie. We have Maytag Model MDE 2400AYW clothes washer, and it stopped mid cycle. We can not open the door of the...

the nd error which is showing up in the unit is due to something blocking the motor.mostly its a blockage to the motor and rarely its a faulty can be anything like hairpin,socks,coins any metallic object this has to be checked and reoved the error will go.
washer has a latch and lock on the door. If this lock fails to open when the cycle is finished. You can rescue your clothes by:
1) Remove the bezel from the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser.
2) Locate the red cord near the right front corner of the dispenser opening. Pull on this red cord. This will unlatch the door so you can rescue your laundry. Then call for service.

How do i fix nd code for mde5500ayw maytag neptune

There are two possible causes to the "nd" code. The first is with the pump itself. Either is is blocked or it is simply worn out and needs replacing. The second is a malfunction with the control board. Unless you find a blockage to the pump there is no way to know which one is the cause of the "nd" code without some testing or replace these items.
If you are unafraid of facing your washer with tools in hand then you should be able to test the pump. As for the board, all you can do is check it for damage most likely caused from a component melt down. In which case it's going to need replacement.

But check for blockages first because that will cause the "nd" code.
I hope this helps and good luck.
