This happend to me once, and it was in relation to a blocked intake filter.

- Check that the intake houses are not cloged and the small filter under neath is clean (Use an old tooth brash)
- Also check the opening on the front bottom left of the machine. (Open with a flat head screw driver)
. My one had coins in it. Note: drain with the small pipe into a backet so when you open it you don't have watter everywere.

This might be Lid cover open protection. There is a small magnet at the edge of the lid cover, housed in some sort of a catch.
If the plastic housing cracked, the magnet might have dropped into the washing drum. To overcome this, place a magnet on the position where the plastic catch will contact the washer when the lid is close.

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. The washer may have release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. If not equipped with this type of console, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame, just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job. Some models will have the switch located on the right-hand side of the lid rim opening, while other models will have the switch located on the left-hand side near the lid hinge.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, and then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle BEFORE you reassemble the console. This is easy to forget.

Forgot to open water supply for my new washing machine and when it started flashing I only realized the problem.As soon as it washes it trips my main switch and says Earth Leakage????Please help!!!!!

Hello Dora,

An Earth-leakage circuit breaker (ELCB) is a safety device used in electrical installations with high Earth impedance to prevent shock. It detects small stray voltages on the metal enclosures of electrical equipment, and interrupts the circuit if a dangerous voltage is detected.

You should have an appliance service person come out for a service call since there may be a dangerous shock hazard present on the machine.

Has 33 minutes and a error message of nd--maytag Neptune tl

What is the Model number of your machine if its a FAV6800A or FAV9800A please read on.

The ND error code means No Drain.

You could have a drain line clog or a stuck Pressure Switch contacts.

See this post for past troubleshooting;

There are links to the Service Manual and I go over how to put the machine in Service Mode to check that the Pressure Switch is signaling properly.

Do you want to DIY the repair?

Machine has a nd code and doesnt drain completly

Hello philncrystal,

My solution is for a FAV6800A or FAV9800A is that your machine model number? If so the ND error code = No Drain the machine Control Board has not seen the a low level pressure switch transition from -1 to -0 in the time allowed for the drain cycle to complete. See Page 16 of the Service Manual.

Her some handy DIY links FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

I would go into Service Mode put 5 gallons of water in the wash tub and turn on the drain pump in Service Mode and check the flow rate.

MY FAV6800A will pump out 5 gallons of water in about 20 seconds. You may have a drain line clog, the drain pump impeller may be jammed with debris or the drain pump is not turning on/failed.

We need to troubleshoot do you want to DIY? I’m an owner like you and have repair knowledge of the machine. Let me know if I can help…..Rich

The washer experienced difficulty draining. Check for a kinked or blocked drain hose. Check for a plugged standpipe.
