Re: Error code "nd"
ND = No Drain error.
If the unit is not pumping out the water then I would not thin twice about changing the pump. You can test the wires going to it for voltage when the unit should be in the pump out cycle. If there is voltage to the pump then it is shot.
If there isnt any voltage going to it then the controller board is likely failed and needs replacement.

Hello, You may have not have had to replace the pump in all actuality. The ND error code can be caused by anything caught in the entire drain area which means from the port hole that comes out of the outter tub you would need to remove the hose that connects to this spot and then to the pump. Also you would remove the drain line after the pump as well and assure in both areas that there are no obstructions. If you still have the ND error code after you have assured you have no blockage in either of the above mentioned areas message me back for further diagnosis. Also after you clear the clogged area make sure you unplug the unit for 7-10 minutes this causes the control to reset which is easier then you haveing to go into diagnositic and clear the error code. I await your reply Thanks Rick

The 03 error code is the drain. Disconnect the drain hoses
and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If
it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the correct
type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum isn't
getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from your
house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if the
blockage is in your plumbing and not in the machine.
Is the Machine a FAV6800A or a FAV9800A? Do you want to DIY the fix? The nd error code = No Drain error code. You could have drain line clog, an issue with the drain pump or a stuck pressure switch.Do you hear the machines drain pump turn on and pump out water before entering lnto the spin cycle?Is there water left in the tub with the nd error code?If you can provide feedback on the questions above I will help guide through the troubleshooting steps. You will need the Service Manual to troubleshoot. The FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference. Rich
Your in the FAV6800AW forum so I’ll assume your machine type is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW.I’m an owner of the FAV6800AW with some hands on experience with the machine. The ND error code equals No Drain.The microprocessor on the Control Board keeps track of the time needed to receive a Low/Mid Level fill indication from the pressure switch at the start of a tub drain cycle.If that time elapses and the pressure switch is signaling that the tub has watering remaining then you trigger the ND error code.Is the tub empty or is there standing water in the tub with the ND error code? If the wash tub is empty and you fail out of the wash cycle with the ND error code then I feel you have pressure switch failure, the pressure switch is signaling the Control Board incorrectly.We need to go into Service Mode “Board Input Test “ and check if the pressure switch is signaling a -1 with an empty tub (no water).If rhe pressure is signaling a -1 with an empty tub then the pressure switch is false signaling “Stuck Pressure Switch” you will error out in the wash cycle with the ND error code and the Pressure Switch will have to be replaced. If the wash tub has standing water in the tub with a ND error code to the console we need to check for a failed drain motor, a drain pump impeller jam/clog.We would go into Service Mode turn the drain pump and listen.Do we hear the drain pump turn on?If so will it pump out 5 gallons of water in about 25 seconds or less as my working FAV6800AW will do?Further troubleshooting will require a DVM to verify that 120VAC is applied to the drain pump,If we have 120VAC at the drain pump motor connections and we don’t hear it turn on we would need to remove the drain pump and check for failed motor or jammed impeller.If the drain pump turns on but we have slow drain out of the drain pump we could would need to remove the drain line from the Sump Cap to the inlet of the drain pump and check for restrictions and possible impeller damage to the drain pump. The question is do you just want know what the ND error code is? Do you want to DIY the repair? If not then it would be time to call in a repair service. Here is the FAV6800A/ FAV9800A Service Manual link. If your machine type is not a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW then please disregard my post. Rich aka dh1200s
Nd, means no drain... a blockage in the drain line from the tub. Access from the back panel, you can remove the hose from the machine and check for blockages... this would be on the tub side of the hose... take the hose loose from the machine and check for blockage at the tub. squeeze the hose to check for blockage within. take the hose loose at the pump to check for blockage there as well... watch out for water ...be ready to mop... let me know how you do..
