An F error without anything after it is a generic fault..
unplug the washer for 1 hour and re-try to reset the controller.

No spin with alarm means the unit is out of balance.
The troubleshooting manual reads:
"The safety switch acts. The
spinning cannot work (The
WASH, RINSE and SPIN
indicator flash and alarm goes
off every 10 seconds). If
trouble cannot be solved after
alarming, it will alarm again
every few minutes."

To solve this the load must be balanced:

Make sure to level the machine on a solid floor. Also you may have to redistribute the clothing in the tub for even weight distribution.

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


Hi


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.


Thanks

Flashing F-9 and beeping


Check that the filter is not clogged.
Disconnect AC FIRST........******
open the bottom access panel , (3 screws on bottom lip)
remove panel
open the large filter in the center, very apparent
be prepared for water, have mops ,buckets rags, pans ready.
clean and remove all debris.
see if anything when up into the small pump area too.
spin the pump propeller and make sure it spins free.
if you find nothing but water then the main large hose in the center may be clogged, that will take some work to disengage the clips and to reinstall.
