Question about Samsung WF328AAW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a WF328AAW washer and it drains yet the nd code appears after

In any mode, the washer will drain first and shows "nd" code. I poured a gallon of water in the machine to test the drain pump, it drains all the water but keeps going till it codes out.

Find the drain sensor, it will be somewhere low in the plumbing. Check to see if it is dirty, check it electrically, too.

    Washing machines have a water level sensor, which shuts off the water when the machine is full. This sensor may also sense when the tub is empty. It will have a small tube going down low on the machine. The sensor/switch usually looks like a flying saucer, and has a sealed adjusting screw. Replacing it may be necessary. You can push on the adjuster to make it click, it should have two clicks, one on, one off.

SOURCE: nd error code (not draining)

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,


Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.


It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Check the drain pump itself. But at the same time if your clothes are still sudsy it sounds like it is not going through all the cycles. Almost like it is skipping a cycle

SOURCE: i drained my drain hose

you will need to open the plug to the drain pump and make sure there is no obstruction that will be stopping the drain pump. if you remove the cover the drain pump there will still be water that comes out.

If there is no panel on the front so you can get at the drain pump you are going to have to remove the front panel of the washer to get to the drain pump.

The lid needs to be removed then the control panel and the rubber boot on the front panel lift the edge of the rubber boot and you will see the retainer clamp.

"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.

Machine has a nd code and doesnt drain completly

Hello philncrystal,

My solution is for a FAV6800A or FAV9800A is that your machine model number? If so the ND error code = No Drain the machine Control Board has not seen the a low level pressure switch transition from -1 to -0 in the time allowed for the drain cycle to complete. See Page 16 of the Service Manual.

Her some handy DIY links FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

I would go into Service Mode put 5 gallons of water in the wash tub and turn on the drain pump in Service Mode and check the flow rate.

MY FAV6800A will pump out 5 gallons of water in about 20 seconds. You may have a drain line clog, the drain pump impeller may be jammed with debris or the drain pump is not turning on/failed.

We need to troubleshoot do you want to DIY? I’m an owner like you and have repair knowledge of the machine. Let me know if I can help…..Rich

What does "nd" mean on my neptune washer

Hello tana_carney4,

Your in the FAV6800AW forum so I’ll assume your machine type is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW. I’m an owner of the FAV6800AW with some hands on experience with the machine.

The ND error code equals No Drain. The microprocessor on the Control Board keeps track of the time needed to receive a Low/Mid Level fill indication from the pressure switch at the start of a tub drain cycle. If that time elapses and the pressure switch is signaling that the tub has watering remaining then you trigger the ND error code. Is the tub empty or is there standing water in the tub with the ND error code?

If the wash tub is empty and you fail out of the wash cycle with the ND error code then I feel you have pressure switch failure, the pressure switch is signaling the Control Board incorrectly. We need to go into Service Mode “Board Input Test “ and check if the pressure switch is signaling a -1 with an empty tub (no water). If rhe pressure is signaling a -1 with an empty tub then the pressure switch is false signaling “Stuck Pressure Switch” you will error out in the wash cycle with the ND error code and the Pressure Switch will have to be replaced.

If the wash tub has standing water in the tub with a ND error code to the console we need to check for a failed drain motor, a drain pump impeller jam/clog. We would go into Service Mode turn the drain pump and listen. Do we hear the drain pump turn on? If so will it pump out 5 gallons of water in about 25 seconds or less as my working FAV6800AW will do? Further troubleshooting will require a DVM to verify that 120VAC is applied to the drain pump, If we have 120VAC at the drain pump motor connections and we don’t hear it turn on we would need to remove the drain pump and check for failed motor or jammed impeller. If the drain pump turns on but we have slow drain out of the drain pump we could would need to remove the drain line from the Sump Cap to the inlet of the drain pump and check for restrictions and possible impeller damage to the drain pump.

The question is do you just want know what the ND error code is?

Do you want to DIY the repair? If not then it would be time to call in a repair service.

Here is the FAV6800A/ FAV9800A Service Manual link.

If your machine type is not a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW then please disregard my post.
