Im guessing this is a performa? if so you may have something cought in your pump. remove the obstruction and check to make sure the pump is free, then replace the belt. the belt should seem a little loose as it needs to slip to get the machine up to speed in the spin

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    My Maytag Neptune will not go into the spin cycle, instead the letters "nf " come on the display. What can I do to prevent this and to have the cycle completed?


    Bonnie,

    NF = No Fill the control board receives signaling for the washer during the water fill cycle. With most cycles the depth of water is around 3.5 inches in the wash basket. I know a Bulky Wash cycle selection will fill the wash tub to a high fill which is about 7.5 inches of water in the wash basket.

    Is the washer filling the machine with any water? Do you hear water entering the machine? If you are doing a cold water fill and there is no or very little water in the wash basket with the NF error code. Try a Warm or Hot fill and see if the machine will fill and start the wash cycle.

    Assuming you are doing cold water wash loads. You could have a water line block at the inlet screen or a failed cold water inlet valve which will not open. Try the above and let me know the results..........Rich

    Wash starts before water is full


    most washers if put on a large load do start going around before the water has finished filling this is just to get all the clothes fully wet before the proper cycle starts to wash them it is just how the washer copes with a large load peter

    Frigidaire FTF530F won't advance


    Possibly the timer. next time it wont stop filling turn off the washer. if it still fills you have a water valve issue. Hope for the valve. Timers are big bucks.

    Washer will fill with water but the agitator won't spin.


    No agitation or spin in any cycle? If so and the machine will drain check the coupler.
