There is a blockage in the drainage system or else you need a new pump. The machine is telling you the water is not getting away. Try removing the front filter bung and remove any debris. Switch machine back on and try again. If same error code comes back on the blockage is further in the system. You will need to disconnect machine and turn on side to inspect pump. You can easily remove the drinage pipes and inspect for blockage. Hope this helps.

Can't find my manual either, but happened upon your question through a google search. Isn't it annoying that some companies don't provide online product manuals? I have a Fuji camera that's no longer made, but the manual is available free, online as a PDF. That's what I call Customer Service. Anyhow, I'm afraid I don't know what Error 3 is either. The only thing I can tell you is that when my machine got stuck mid-cycle one time, I treated it like a frozen computer. Switched off and unplugged at the mains, left it for a minute, then reconnected and started it again. It was a hunch that the computer circuitry might need to be reset. It worked and I've never had another problem - yet. Good luck! Avril

Based on my experience, the same thing happens to me as you have mentioned that it happens every end of a cycle. I doubt if it was a fan error or a frequency error. for me, its just a simple overload for the autodrying. for example on my model. the manual says autodrying cotton-cupboard dry must be max 3 kg. since you cannot measure your wet clothes and it sometimes exceed the 3kg autodrying, that is when the FE comes out. but when i remove some clothes or spin the laundry again and put it into drying, everything works fine. when i use the machine with minimal clothes say 2kg dry, the whole cycle up to drying work fine without FE errors.

So i believe its just an error for drying overload. also the manual says nothing about FE nor Error code for drying overload.

Hope this help.

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.

Washing machine isn't spinning clothes.

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump
