NF = No Fill Error

Check your hose inlet strainers.

Be sure they are free of contaminants.

Turn off the water supply - remove the hose.
On the side of the machine is a small metal strainer which catches debris in the water line.

Remove it using a small screwdriver and clean it.

Otherwise - your water valve is likely failed. (or the CCU not giving it the signal to open) so further testing will be required.

Nf code on Amana washer


NF code means that the Washing Machine is Not Filling with water.

Its possible that the hot or cold water inlet valve is clogged on the unit; remove the hoses from the back of the machine and look inside where they hook to the machine, make sure that they are not clogged up with debris, if they are clean them the best you can.

If they are clean you may need to replace the hot or cold inlet valve on the machine.




If you need parts replacement, look with your model in this site:

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

What does nf mean on my digital display of the maytag neptune front loader


HI, this will occur if the unit is having issues with the filling process during the wash cycle. Check The inlet hoses, to make sure they are not kinked in any way, or twisted. I would ,also, advise to inspect the water faucets as well. make sure the faucets are completely open al the way. If all is well with the hoses and faucets, move on ot the inlets assembly.

WATER INLET VALVE TEST PROCEDURE

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.

Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.

If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.

There are two wires connected to each solenoid on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals ( Be sure to not pull the wires). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. Test the second one in the same way as the first.

If the solenoid is working properly, but water leaks through the valve even when the washer is off, then the valve itself is the problem. Debris may be preventing the valve from closing. If the valve cannot be cleaned, it will have to be replaced. The valve can also fail mechanically. So even if it passes the electrical test, it may still require replacement. If you have ruled out all other possibilities, go ahead and replace the valve.

I have a Maytag Model MAH8700aww washer


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. I hope this helps you.
