Maytag MAH 24 does not drain and makes weird humming noise

My Maytag MAH 24 gave me an error message of "nd" and it did not finish through the rinse and drain cycle. I paused it and powered down and when I powered it back up it now just makes a weird humming noise. Since there is still some water in the machine, the door won't unlock and it won't drain/spin. Is there a re-set button on this machine so I can get my clothes out?

    My washer is the same model, same problem, what is this? What's wrong? I tried moving the drain hose around, manually draining it and restarting the cycle after unplugging and after flipping the breaker. Anyone?

I also have this problem. to get the door to unlock, just unplug the washer and it should open in a min or two. you will hear a click. you may have a mini flood but at least you can get your cloths out and bail out the water. my problem started when i began using a new detergent from Tide called total care. Still tying to get the pump to work.

Error code "nd" means it is not draining. Click on this link to get the user manual:

Then click on "GET THIS MANUAL" to download the manual.

Not draining can be caused by the controller, pump, solenoid valve, or clogged drain.

How to fix nd code

ND means no drain. The issue could be using the wrong detergent. IT could also be something stuck in the filter or the pump.

Error message SUD and F21 even after unclogging the filter

Push the pause/cancel button twice to clear your message. Then run through a rinse/spin cycle. Next try a normal load without any detergent. SUDS is usually from too much detergent. If this fails, checked the hose for kinks. Check connections and if all that fails, you will probably have to replace the pump. Good Luck!

The washer ran fine then stopped with water not draining. When I push the on button I get a buzz or humming noise .nothing moves. There is no error code.

Sounds as if you have something doen in the pump preventing it from draining and in doing so shutting the machine off as a safety action. I think you can actually access the pump from the rear of the machine. just unplug the machine, prepare to get wet, take the back of the machine off, take the lines off the pump and check for the blockage.

Washer stoped and did not finish rinse cycle now it makes a humming sound and code nd

Washer Error Codes ND IS -No Drain There could be two problems...The drain could be clogged, or the water pump could be bad. Or the belt that runs the pump is sliping or broken
  1. Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.
  2. 3Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.
  3. 4If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.
  4. 5Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.
  5. 6Reassemble hose from step 3.
  6. 7Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.
  7. 8Reassemble washing machine're done...

My maytag clothes washer Bravo quiet series 300, keeps flashing a Sd error code. Or it may be 5d

What does the Sd code mean?

This code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the wash action and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Use only HE High Efficiency detergent for BravosTM washers.

Is "Sd" displayed and the wash cycle dial is flashing?

This indicates the washer was not able to clear all the excess suds from the washer. Re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press Start/Pause. Do not add detergent.

Is "Sd" displayed and the wash cycle dial is not flashing?

If "Sd" is displayed and the wash cycle dial is not flashing, allow the machine to continue running, even if it appears that nothing is happening. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the wash action will pause to allow the bubbles in the suds to break, and the washer will add water for better rinsing. This rinsing process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?

Make sure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.

To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel once.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work:

  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.

NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other questions above have been checked, call for service.

My maytag washer mah-24 have a "nd" msg. which mean "not draining" and now i cannot open the door to take the clothes out. pls. help.

Unlocking the door:
Turn on the washer, but don't start any wash cycles. After a few minutes, the door should unlock itself.

Troubleshooting the "nd" message:
"nd" means "no drain". Empty the (now unlocked) washer and fill the wash tub with just enough water to see a bit of water at the bottom of the tub. Run a drain cycle and check a) if it drains and b) if there are any unusual noises while it is draining. If either event occurs during the drain cycle, the drain pump may have to be repaired/replaced.

Someone put some heavy things in it and it stopped mid-cycle. We removed the heavy objects, and then attempted to drain the leftover water by putting it on "rinse and spin." It never really...

The ND error code on a digital Neptune front load washer. The ND code means 'No Drain' and it is probably just something caught in the pump. Sometimes this is a early sign of the pump going out or a control board issue.

Has 33 minutes and a error message of nd--maytag Neptune tl

What is the Model number of your machine if its a FAV6800A or FAV9800A please read on.

The ND error code means No Drain.

You could have a drain line clog or a stuck Pressure Switch contacts.

See this post for past troubleshooting;

There are links to the Service Manual and I go over how to put the machine in Service Mode to check that the Pressure Switch is signaling properly.

Do you want to DIY the repair?

Let me know.........Rich
