Maytag Neptune Top Load Washer - Rinse Cycle won't run - Machine says nF

I have now tried 3 different times to wash clothes in my Maytag Neptune Top Load Washer.  After a while it seems to freeze (right before rinse cycle) and then display nF.  The machine is barely 4 years old......

What is wrong?  I have never had this problem before.

Can you possibly help?

Tgank you.

Sounds like the 'Wash water' is not pumping out fully,You need to drain the water by lowering the empty hose into a bowl & check the pump for a blockage ( if the pump is an 'electric one' check that it is working). TURN POWER OFF FIRST

My neptune washer will start and run about half a cycle and it acts like it gets stuck and on one cycle and never shuts off. I put a load of clothes in before I went to bed and next morning the machine...

What does half a cycle mean are you in Wash cycle, Spin Cycle? What does the Cycle Status LED indicate?


If you think the wash load is in a spin cycle of the wash cycle or rinse cycle place the machine in Spin Only cycle and see if it will complete.

Waht are your DIY skills? Do you want to try the repair/fix?.............Rich

My Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW top load washer only runs for the first few minutes of the cycle, it will not just stops..we've tried two cycles, the quick starts at 33 mins and then stops...

I'm and owner and will try to help. Are you handy and do you want to try a DIY fix?

From the wash times is sounds like the washer is agitating the wash load (tumblers are rotating the wash basket load) is that correct?

If so see if the machine will complete a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Set the Spin setting to Spin/Hang dry seting and start the cycle. It should take about 10 min complete. Does the Spin Only cycle complete with no clothes in the wash basket?

Some handy links if you are going to DIY.........Service Manual for reference.

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?


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

Maytag neptune won;t rinse

Check latch mechanism for alignment. Often operation of machine loosens latch mechanism causing internal switch for "door open (or ajar)" preventing rinse or spin cycle. Opening and closing door presses latch mechanism closing internal switch allowing for continue processing to rinse or spin cycles.
