What does Code nf on washer machine Samsung vrt model mean

NF indicates no water flow. This could mean that the incoming water valves were shut-off, the incoming water flow is low, or that the washer didn't detect the water flow into the washer correctly. If the drain hose is too low, the washer could fill and drain simultaneously. This can also cause the problem.

First if the washer is not getting any water, then check your shut-off valves and the hoses. Disconnect the hoses from the washer and place a bucket under them. Check the flow by turning on each valve for a bit. Clean or replace the filters at the shut-off valves and in the washer. Consider replacing the hoses. Some anti-flood hoses will reduce the water flow if they detect leaks. Make sure that the hoses are not kinked. If the water flow is good at the shut-off valves, then the inlet valve may have failed in the closed position.

If water is filling the washer, then the problem is in the water flow detection system. This could indicate the small reed switch is damaged, the air tube to the reed switch is clogged or that tube has a hole in it. Some washers check for fill by the change in the drum weight. This signal may not be reaching the control unit due to a problem with the sensor or the wiring.

If the washer is filling and draining, pull your drain hose up. It is below the washer fill level. This creates a vacuum that will drain the washer.

I hope this helps.

My g.e washer does not fill with water mod#whdsr209daww

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

If you have established that the water is reaching the washer, then either there is ni power to the valves, or the valves are faulty.
Hope this helps.

Same problem...water won't shut off but drains in the spin cycle.

Hello my fellow Mountaineer. I think your problem is most likely being caused by a defective water level switch. This switch senses the water level in the tub and shuts off the water. It's usually a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases and when the pressure reaches a certain level it signals the switch to shut the water off and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. Clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the switch. Hope this helped. GO MOUNTAINEERS!

No spin - agitate


You just do this

  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drover belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the Agitator
  • Inspect the pump coupling
  • Test the Water switch level
Good luck !!!

Water Won't Drain from Washing Machine

Hello phylislw61,
If you had an incident where a pillow broke and feathers where dispersed throughout the washer..then there is a good chance that teh drain fiilter screen, pump or hose feeding the pump is clogged. I would verify that the filter is free from anything that would limit water flow from getting to the pump.. then if the problem is still there.. examine the pump itself to make sure it isn't clogged...
If you or someone in your family is reasonably handy, here is a link to your washing machines exploded view and parts and this should provide sufficient information for how to access the pump and associated hoses etc that feed into and out of it for cleaning..
If you are having problems after you verify the lines are free of restriction, feel free to contact me and I will try to assist you in solving your problem.. Here is the link..
