Question about Maytag MAH2400A Compact Front Load Washer

Error "nd" trouble

We started a 33 minute quick wash this morning and when it was time to rinse and pump the water out at 21 minutes, it started to make a humming sound and then flashed "nd" error message. We pulled out the machine and took the hose out and everything seemed fine. No obstruction in the plumbing either. We've made an appointment with a technician for tomorrow and we want to make sure we can afford this problem. if we need a new pump or the pump cleared, how much is this going to cost? Can we clear the pump ourselves or does this require an expert? Thank you for reading this - we are so worried :(

Nd, means no drain... a blockage in the drain line from the tub. Access from the back panel, you can remove the hose from the machine and check for blockages... this would be on the tub side of the hose... take the hose loose from the machine and check for blockage at the tub. squeeze the hose to check for blockage within.
take the hose loose at the pump to check for blockage there as well... watch out for water ...be ready to mop... let me know how you do..

How do you ascertain if its drain pump or faulty controller board causing a fault 37 on a gw612?


Read the answer in the link below first, but in your case it can also be a faulty or blocked diverter valve. If you are good with a multimeter check the resistance of the pump windings. It should read around 33 ohms. It is not uncommon for the pumps to cook themselves and you can smell and see the burned out motor. I hope this is of some help

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;

http://www.fixya.com/support/t2209123-code_nd_fav6800aww_serial_number_10

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

Maytag neptune tl makes grinding sound and stops at 33 minutes in normal mode and at 24 minutes in quick wash mode



Hello djlampl,

With the lowest spin cycle setting I enter spin cycle in Quick Wash around the 21 minute mark. But first question is do you hear the grinding noise with the tumblers rotating during the wash/agitate cycle?

If you start a spin only cycle do you hear the grinding noise?

Does the washer error code out with an error code to the display? Codes such as dC, uC, Lr?, I assume the machine type is a FAV6800AW is that correct?

Any additional info will help in troubleshooting…..Rich

Assuming the machine type is a FAV6800A/FAV9800A here are some handy links;

F 21 error code I came down with 1 minute estimated time remaining, and it was still spinning with soap and water in the machine. I checked again 20 minutes later and the water and soap was still in...


"F21" is a long drain error code. This is most commonly caused by something obstructing the drain pump, or drain lines. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

I would begin by checking the drain pump reservoir for small debris. You would be amazed as to what finds its way into these pumps. The link I provided also gives instructions on how to check the drain pump.

If you clear the drain pump and the problem still presists, verify all the drain lines are clear. If all these preliminary checks still result in an error code, more than likely the drain pump is damaged and requires replacement.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Code nd FAV6800AWW, Serial number 10


Hello HopelessR,
Don’t buy a clutch I don’t feel it’s a clutch issue at this point. I hope you can hang in there for some basic troubleshooting. I’m an owner like you not a repair person but I have worked some issues. I feel with the info supplied that you have a true “nd” alarm. The “nd” alarm is triggered when the washer fails to drain completely as monitored by the pressure switch input to the control board and the factory program time limit required for draining the washer. I have never experienced an “nd” alarm until this evening. This was a user induced “nd” failure by pumping wash water back into the tub during the drain cycle of Quick Wash cycle. I started a Quick Wash cycle with no clothes in the washer and with the remaining three settings set to min settings. At the 22 min mark the washer started the drain pump and began a slow spin CCW of the wash basket. It took several minutes of pumping wash water back into the wash tub to trigger “nd” alarm. The washer indicated time stayed at the 21 min mark until the “nd” alarm triggered. 1st test; could you start a Quick Wash cycle with what you would consider a full wash load with the settings I mentioned and let’s see what the results are. I don’t feel you have a clutch issue with no dc/UC error codes to the console. I believe at this point that you have a drain restriction problem. I can’t explain why the washer completes the cycle with the wash basket empty at this point. The 2nd test, do you have a deep sink you can pump the wash water into and observe the stream output? The stream my FAV6800AWW will produce is about a 3” vertical column of water out of the drain pipe held over the deep sink with the drain pump running and no clothes in the wash basket. If you have a deep sink and a helper that can turn on the drain pump in service mode as outlined below we can compare your drain pump output to mine.
You can turn on the drain pump in Service Mode with the process below.
1. Enter Service Mode by pressing both the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys simultaneously until the washer beeps.

2. Next you need to go into the Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key; your display should now read “ot”.

3. Now press the Presoak key this will start the drain pump and it should begin to empty the tub.

You can press the Off button to stop the drain pump.
If the output stream is low we can troubleshoot the restriction starting at the Sump Cap Item 9 and work back toward the drain pump.
I’ll hang in there with you if you want to continue to troubleshoot the issue. Maybe we can get some suggestions from other forum members. Rich

Washer stopping mid-cycle with no error


Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you have drained, unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out. F-21 filter blocked.

Quick Wash cycle restarting


Aestaie, On the quick wash cycle the machine goes through a heated rinse at 160 degrees. I think what's happening here is that the board checks the thermistor and is finding that the water is not hot enough and say's, hey, I need more time to heat this water and resets itself. The element in the dishwasher will only heat the water 1 degree every 3 to 5 minutes. So after the initial wash, there is a 2 minute drain, it fills again and there is the heated rinse. If the water is 120 and the final rinse needs to be 160, we have some heating to do here. Therefore the reset. Sounds like the dishwasher is working OK, Catriver..post back
