Washer Flashing Error Code ND; door won't open after turning washer off


Hello,

The ND error code means NO DRAIN. ,

The usually reason the door remains locked once the cycle is over is because the filter screen on the drain pump is blocked so not all the water could drain out...the door lock is tied into the pump and until the pump tells the control board that the wate r is out the door will not unlock. This tip i wrote will show ya how to take apart the washer to clean the filter on the pump.

The door wont open . I have tried to put it on for a cycle and you can here the the water for around 5 seconds then it stops and does nothing.


Check and make sure your pump or filter is not clogged, then next I would suspect you have a faulty door lock mechanism
More common issues with the door lock.
Is water hooked up to the washer?

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?

If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?

If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?

If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!

My kenmore elite he3t front load washer door will not unlock


If there is water in the tub, it will not unlock. There is a pump filter that becomes plugged that you can access from the front by removing the lower panel. It unscrews and allows to be cleaned out. If still no luck, there is a release at the bottom of the door lock to open the door manually.

What does trouble code f28 mean


f-28 was flashing on my washer for the longest time, first i had read that my heating element had gone out which was false, my washer still produced the steam and heat prior to error code f-28 then shutting down.The 2nd thing i read was F-28 meant the locking switch on the door was going bad which again was false, my washer would lock and unlock allowing me to feed more clothes. So i took it upon myself to remove the lower cover clean and was my RINSE filter which at that time I discovered the DRAIN tube was pushed against my wall not allowing enough water to flow out on my washers RINSE & SPIN cycle.

If you have this problem I would recommend following your service guide to trouble shoot the RINSE FILTER & DRAIN PIPE. The washer motor spins so fast that the washer itself need to drain the water out 10X's faster then a regular standard washer!

Hope this helps cause it did for me and saved my wife and I alot of money in repairs!

GE wbvh5100 Door lock will not ''unlock'' Door is stuck open


I am having the same problem right now. I couldn't get anything to work, so I unplugged the machine for a minute or two, and then plugged it back in. The door lock made a funny sound, but it's working again. Good luck.

My washer locks up and the door is LOCKED


FO2 is the code for long drain. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

To manually unlock the door lock system:
1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened.

Cleaned filter, washer still won't run


WasherMama,

I think they all start out that way - sort of a self diagnostic check on all its functions (lock, turn one way, turn the other, unlock) before it actually starts washing. After I wait a moment (or longer) it relocks the door and only then does the water start to run and the cycle begin.
I hope I'm not just stating the obvious.
