Re: nf pops up on the screen & the washer stops

The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time (especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad. I hope this helps you.

We start the washer and it runs for about 20 minutes. Then it stops and the letters nf come on the control panel and it wont run. Can you please what that means?

According to the user manual for your washer (which is available here,, "nF" means the washer is unable to fill with water. Make sure your water supply lines are free of obstructions or kinks, and also that the water valves are turned on all the way.

My Maytag Neptune will not go into the spin cycle, instead the letters "nf " come on the display. What can I do to prevent this and to have the cycle completed?


NF = No Fill the control board receives signaling for the washer during the water fill cycle. With most cycles the depth of water is around 3.5 inches in the wash basket. I know a Bulky Wash cycle selection will fill the wash tub to a high fill which is about 7.5 inches of water in the wash basket.

Is the washer filling the machine with any water? Do you hear water entering the machine? If you are doing a cold water fill and there is no or very little water in the wash basket with the NF error code. Try a Warm or Hot fill and see if the machine will fill and start the wash cycle.

Assuming you are doing cold water wash loads. You could have a water line block at the inlet screen or a failed cold water inlet valve which will not open. Try the above and let me know the results..........Rich

It is displaying a nf and stopped working

NF means No Fill. Check inlet valve screens at the mix valve where hoses attach to machine. If there is nohumming noise at fill time, you will need to replace the inlet valve.

My washer stops during the wash cycle and nf appears on the display screen

NF code is Washer does not turn on water valves to fill washer with water. You may need to replace your water valves, but I would first try removing your hot and cold water hoses to see if the screen on your valves is clogged. If they are corroded beyond repair, just pick up another set at the hardware store. Either that or you will need to do the valve replacement.
