SOURCE: washer not spinning and draining water

I just had a similar problem. I broke down and had a repair man come out to take a look. He pulled off the front lower cover, took off the inlet hose on the water pump, and found my two year old daughters sock stuck in the turbine of the water pump. The motor runs both the drum and the pump, therfore it would not spin, and would not let the water drain.

Everything was fine until tonight. I'm having the same problem again. I pulled everything off just like my repair man did, but no sock. I think I might wind up pulling off the whole pump to check the otlet side.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

SOURCE: Strange growling sounds on rinse and spin cycle

I would check the motor control board located near the floor on the right side for burnt components. The motor is a 3 phase unit and if one of the phases are working the motor will growl and won't be able to supply the proper torque.

See for disassembly photos and for more info on the faulty door latch wax motor.

Hi, the drain pump impeller is damaged. you will need to replace the entire pump(drain) in this case.

You will hear this noise when the impeller become separated from the actual drive stud or, shaft.

SOURCE: nF code comes up and washer has just finished its

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.

My amana front load washer wont spin and is showing an "nd" error message. what does this mean and how do i fix it?


Thanks for using FixYa. From what I understand the error code ND means “No Drain issue”. You’ll need to check for any restriction in pump assembly. It can also be due to a restricted drain hose or loose wire at pump. If after cleaning the drain hose the issue is not resolved then it means the pump has gone bad and unfortunately needs to be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

I have a Kenmore N2. What would make my front load washer fill back up with some water after the drain and spin cycle is complete?? IF I let the washer go until it's done and go downstairs to take out,...

first, run a rinse,drain & spin cycle. after it finishes filling, shut the water supply (taps) off. If water enters the washer after the drain, it has to be sifoning back in from the DRAIN hose. Check to see if the drain hose is not going up above the washer more than a few inches

Washer will not finish its rinse or spin cycle

Check that water can drain out of the machine
1/ Check that the filter is not blocked
2/ Check drain motor is working (ie. not blocked with coins or hairpins etc)
3/ Check that pipe from tub to filter is not blocked (I had a sock blocking mine)
4/ If there is water in the filter and the drain motor runs then check that waste water hose is not blocked.

Kenmore 90 series loud whirring/howling noise during spin cycle

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupler. They are inexpensive. Can be a little tough to replace but I can walk you through it. You can purchase a coupler here.

Loud whirring sound

no problem withthe water they sometimes use a water ring for balance, or you may be hearing water reaming in the pump and hose areaa, its always there. as far as not spinning completly you may need to replace the belt or the idler(tension pulley), two 5/16 screw along the very bottom of unit will gai you access to see inside the machine

Slow to spin and making a loud noise.

Control boards don't growl, the fry out and die. Sounds like a drive train problem to me. If it's a front load machine, the spindle/bearing assy. has gone to washer heaven. If it's a top load machine... could be the transmission, brake/clutch assy. or the tub bearings. In either case, if it's less than 5 years old, the drive system will be warrantied through the manufacturer. If you could provide a make and model number, I could narrow this down to a fine point.
