Maytag neptune mah8700aww wont drain, spin or put water in

What-where and how do I check for water blockages into and out of the washer? Error code is nd. Nothing is happening and I don't want to burn out the motor if the water is clogged somewhere.

    My washer got stuck and had the nd code too, but now my door is locked and won't unlock. I have unplugged it for almost 20 mins, then plugged it back in to see if it would reset and it won't. I need to get into it right now, my kids school clothes are in it. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!

    Okay so I finally got the door unlocked. I tried to drain my washer manually and water went all over the floor. It smelled really bad, and I just put the load in today around 4, so I think its been holding water. Now it won't spin or drain at all. Are there any suggestions so I don't have to call someone, or is it hopeless?

    My washer has done the same. Manually drain washer (grey hose and a bucket) then run on 9 minute SPIN cycle. Doors will unlock at the end.

If you remove the oval cover in the back of the mach,you will find the pump.there are 2 hose clamps to remove.usually you will find change stuck in the pump.remove the screws on the bracket that holds down the pump and you can take the entire pump out...good luck

    I have a ND code, I took apart the pump and it was pretty clean. I put everything back together and ran it again, I still get a ND error. Could my pump have gone bad? How would I know without purchasing a new part?

    There is a way. Make sure you check all pockets before laundering clothing.

OMGOSH!!! THANK YOU!!! These postings really helped us out and saved us a lot of money. A week ago our Maytag Neptune washer stopped in the middle of washing a load of clothes. The water would not drain. Clothes stuck inside and code that said ND and the door would not unlock. After reading the manual and trying to trouble shoot on our own. We came across your posting's here on this site.. My husband did as you all said. Took the pump out and took it apart and found the problem. A quarter was stuck in there and blocking it so the water could not drain properly. He put it all back together. The door now unlocked and we did a practice wash with no clothes. We did add 1/4 vinger to get rid of the smell from the wet clothes being stuck inside for a few days. I am HAPPY to say our washer is working perfectly... I wanted to post our story in hopes this would help someone else.

My Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW washer when in the spin dry mode shuts down with a suds error?


Check your drain hose for kinks or blockages, check filter and pump for blockages, check wire harness connections to pump, pressure switch and CCU.
I machine will start- If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

Maytag neptune MAH8700AWW washer will not complete the spin cycle. It spins both directions but never goes past 6 minutes on the display. Eventually you get the "DC" error. It does this with or without...


If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.

You may have tried this, but check the door switch, and the pressure switch(water level switch) to see if either could be bad. both of those affect whether the washer spins or not.

Removed both water pump hoses, No blockages drum still has water init. Is this normal? Won't drain and go to final spin. Pump clean and spins free. Maytag Neptune MAH5500B


Water pressure switch adjustment or clogged. Check the small connecting hose to the switch body.

Final spin command signal generates from this part only.

We just installed the MAH9700AWM Maytag Neptune and got an error code OE? We cancelled cycle, etc still getting issue.


The "OE" error code means the control detected the water level in the machine is above the overflow level. According to your description the first failure suspect is the water valve possibly stuck. Perform the troubleshooting as described in the tech sheets.

Here are the break down diagrams for the Maytag Neptune washer Model MAH8700AWW

I keep getting the error code nd on my Maytag neptune whats this mean?


Error ND means that there is a drain problem.

Either there is debris inside drain pump hose, or the pump itself is faulty.


The problem is fixed accessing the drain pump hose to check for a blockage.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Maytage Neptune E3 code - Model MAH8700AWW - machine won't finish cycle


“E3” code – Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)
Possible causes of ‘E3’ codes: 1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause. 2. Hall Sensor fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.
Hall Sensor – PCB that is located on the back of the motor that senses motor rpm. It is not a separate part, but rather an integral part of the motor.

My maytag neptune washer will not perform the final spin cycle. Therefore the clothes are still wet. Any solutions


Maytag washer parts, GE washer parts, and other brand names on the market are all designed to work interdependently with each other. This system starts to break down if even one part begins to encounter difficulty. Your washer's spin cycle flings a large amount of water out of the clothes, but if the water can't drain, the clothes will soak it all back up, defeating the purpose of the cycle. Excessively wet clothes after the spin cycle may not be caused by faulty washer parts, but rather a blocked drain is a very good bet. Check the drain line for a blockage and try again. If your hose is kinked or bent, this can also cause a drainage problem. The failure of one simple part creates a larger problem for all the washer parts. What can cause a blockage? A number of items; paper left in the pockets of your jeans, coins or other debris, even socks. Check your hoses, and make sure your laundry has empty pockets for future loads.
