First drain out the water from the machine with a tube. You have to check your outlet filter, likely it is clogged. Clean out and refit. Your machine will not do the spin because it knows the filter is clogged.

"nd" code on my washer, after I moved residence what would cause that?

Nd = no drain. Either drain pump is clogged or defective. Too many suds can also cause this problem.

Code nd

Don't know if this is your problem but sometimes ours will appear to drain, but there is still a lot of suds that remains and trips the nd (no drain) indicator/lockout. We had to pour water in from a bucket to beat down the suds, then repeat several times to get all the suds out. First time I took off the back of the washer, disconnected the pump, then let the suds out. To much work.

Nd on screen will not spin

How to fix a Samsung Washernd washer error code. You can make this repair your self and in most cases without parts. Let me explain what the nd on a Samsung washer control panel means exactly. The nd error code stands for No Drain. When this washer error code comes up the washer will not spin either.

To fix this issue you will need to slide the unit forward to access the pump if there is no access panel on the lower front. If the clean out access panel is on the lower front bail the water from the washer and twist the filter head counter-clockwise. If the front panel does not have the access panel the washer will need to be slide forward. With the washer pulled out the back access panel can be removed. With the panel removed, the drain pump will be visible. Remove the two hoses on the pump followed by the two 7/16 bolts that mount the pump down. With the pump off, you can now remove the debris inside.

My washer stops before the rinse cycle because it can't seem to drain enough to start the spin cycle. I just had the drain motor replaced one month ago. I get the error code nd. I can sto the cycle and...

I'd love to say yes! The machine is stopping because it will not drain. This is what the nd code means. Therefore, it will not rinse (add more water) or spin because the water level is already too high and to try to "spin it out" would put too much pressure on the machine with that much water in it. Drain out the water by putting the drain hose below the level of the washer (this takes forever) and call your repair man back!

My Maytag Neptune Washer showed "nd" on the display screen, and now the door will not unlock. What can I do?

ND is NO drain
The water level fails to drop below the Low Water level reset within 15 minutes, before a spin begins.

ND...our samsung won't drain and spin cycle doesn't help

I had similar problem. It would wash but not spin and drain. Spin would only happen when there was no water inside (I removed it manually.) If it spins when empty of water then it could be the outlet from under the drum to the exhaust pump is clogged or the pump itself is clogged. I found $3 in change and a bunch of plastic tags etc.. Remove the bottom panel and unscrew filter (bottom right) check for obstruction. Also tilt machine to side and undo rubber hose from drum to pump to check for obstruction.
