Hello tana_carney4,

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.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Error COde "nd"

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.

Nd keeps coming up


Hello,

The ND error code means NO DRAIN. To see why the ND code keeps coming up the drain pump needs to be checked for a partial blockage.

Someone put some heavy things in it and it stopped mid-cycle. We removed the heavy objects, and then attempted to drain the leftover water by putting it on "rinse and spin." It never really...


The ND error code on a digital Neptune front load washer. The ND code means 'No Drain' and it is probably just something caught in the pump. Sometimes this is a early sign of the pump going out or a control board issue.

I keep getting the error code nd on my Maytag neptune whats this mean?


Error ND means that there is a drain problem.

Either there is debris inside drain pump hose, or the pump itself is faulty.


The problem is fixed accessing the drain pump hose to check for a blockage.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Washer does not drain


ND error means no drain. When this happens it is usually a problem with the drain pump assembly, located under the bottom panel, inside the machine.

check the drain hose and the drain lines, ensure they are not obstructed. Probably the drain pump need replacement.
