Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Your in the FAV6800AW forum so I’ll assume your machine type is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW. I’m an owner of the FAV6800AW with some hands on experience with the machine.
The ND error code equals No Drain. The microprocessor on the Control Board keeps track of the time needed to receive a Low/Mid Level fill indication from the pressure switch at the start of a tub drain cycle. If that time elapses and the pressure switch is signaling that the tub has watering remaining then you trigger the ND error code. Is the tub empty or is there standing water in the tub with the ND error code?
If the wash tub is empty and you fail out of the wash cycle with the ND error code then I feel you have pressure switch failure, the pressure switch is signaling the Control Board incorrectly. We need to go into Service Mode “Board Input Test “ and check if the pressure switch is signaling a -1 with an empty tub (no water). If rhe pressure is signaling a -1 with an empty tub then the pressure switch is false signaling “Stuck Pressure Switch” you will error out in the wash cycle with the ND error code and the Pressure Switch will have to be replaced.
If the wash tub has standing water in the tub with a ND error code to the console we need to check for a failed drain motor, a drain pump impeller jam/clog. We would go into Service Mode turn the drain pump and listen. Do we hear the drain pump turn on? If so will it pump out 5 gallons of water in about 25 seconds or less as my working FAV6800AW will do? Further troubleshooting will require a DVM to verify that 120VAC is applied to the drain pump, If we have 120VAC at the drain pump motor connections and we don’t hear it turn on we would need to remove the drain pump and check for failed motor or jammed impeller. If the drain pump turns on but we have slow drain out of the drain pump we could would need to remove the drain line from the Sump Cap to the inlet of the drain pump and check for restrictions and possible impeller damage to the drain pump.
The question is do you just want know what the ND error code is?
Do you want to DIY the repair? If not then it would be time to call in a repair service.
Here is the FAV6800A/ FAV9800A Service Manual link.
If your machine type is not a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW then please disregard my post.

I had a similar problem until it finally gave up draining altogether. I took the drain pump apart and found that a quarter was jammed in the pump after it broke a vain off. I don't know how the quarter got past the basket but this was definitely my problem.

SOURCE: maytag neptune washer code nd,
nd means not draining. u may to check the plastic drain pipe in back to back sure it doesnt have a kink in it, and that it is placed so that the pump inside the washing machine doesn't have to pump it too far to get to the drain.

SOURCE: What does the code ND mean?
ND - No Drain
Machine control board monitors water level in washer during and at the end of pump out. If wash level does not reset pressure switch, it will see water left in the washer.
1.Check for pump/drain restriction.
2.Check pump operation.
3.Check pressure switch for open contacts.
4.Check inputs and outputs at machine control board.
5.Replace responsible component.
