Remove the water hoses from the washer and clean out the filter screens in the water valve.

    Did you clean out the screens or just decide it must be something else?

What does nf mean


NF stands for no fill, which means you are not getting any water into the machine. This is either because the water valve has failed or is clogged, the water is turned off or the pressure switch thinks there is already water in the machine but the last is very unlikely.

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?


Bonnie,

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

My neptune TL stops at 11 minutes and flashes "nf"


mattscott;
My comments are based on the FAV6800A/FAV9800A.
NF = No Fill. Your machine has reached a Control Board internal timer and has not seen proper signaling from the Pressure Switch for expected water fill for the wash cycle selected.
Possible fail points.
1. Pressure Switch is not signaling for properly tor water fill.
2. Water inlet valve is restricted or not functioning.
Please confirm your machine model number is it a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? I’m going to assume your machine model is a one of those models. Here is a link for the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual.
If you can let me know how much water is in the wash basket when your Control Board triggers the no fill error “NF” to the display? I would prefer you select Quick Wash cycle with minimal machine settings for the water fill. Do you have the issue with a cold temp select fill, a warm/hot temp select fill?
If you want to DIY I would suggest you become familiar with how to get in Service Mode. We may need to go to page 16 of the SM and possible check for correct Pressure Switch transitions in Board Functional Test Input Control Keys.

We will continue after your feedback…..Rich

Getting nf code on final spin cycle


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.
