    Thanks for sending me to that site, can you find something similar for the harder to locate TOP LOAD Neptune TL washing machine? All I can locate are the front loading ones and I'm still unsure what the dc code stands for. THANKS

    Maytag Neptune MAH8700 and MAH6700: “E3′ or “dc” Error Codes
    by Samurai Appliance Repair Man

    have been problems with the motor wire harness connector on these
    washers. The problems are either a loose or bent terminal in the molex

    Unplug the connector and tug on each wire. If a wire comes loose
    from the plug, bend the locking tab up. If a locking tab is not
    properly seated in the plug connector, the terminals will not fully
    engage as the connector is plugged into the motor.

    Another manifestation of this problem is that one of the terminals
    may be bent. Inspect the terminals on the motor side of the connector.
    Straighten any bent terminals if they exist. Recheck the harness side
    of the terminal block if any bent terminals are found. Bent terminals
    can indicate a problem with the locking tab inside the plug.

My maytag Neptune washer stops running and a code "nd" is in the display with the chime audible warning, what should I do?

And means no drain hopefully your drain or drain hoses is clogged
Unplug machine for 10 minutes.
If doesnt work something is stuck in your pump lots of water will come out if you choose to remove back panel so be ready a shop vac is a good thing to have on stand by keep machine unplugged
You can see in the pump if you see the obstruction take it out
If not turn the large knob counter clockwise freeing the pump from the drum .clear debris.reinstall put back together as was.plug in any wash as normal

What does code f03 mean

An F03 error code on many front load washers indicates a failure to drain properly. You can usually clear this fault code by pressing the pause/cancel button. Next, check the drum for water. If the drum still has water in it, restart a drain and spin cycle. This should drain the water from the tub.

If your washer will not drain, check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. Make sure that the drain hose is not stuck more than 8 inches down the stand pipe.

If you do not hear your drain pump running, you may have a problem with your control or your drain pump. Also, if your pump is making a loud noise, it may be clogged. These problems would require service by a technician.

How can you fix the nd code

The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.

Does not seem to drain completely - ran very long today and the last code I saw was "nd" - not draining? or not done?

nd code indicates a problem with draining. The problem could be:
1. Clog in the drain hose - 2. Drain pump in the washer needs replacement 3. Clog in your sewage
Some simple things to try out
a. Run a wet/dry shop vac at the end of the drain hose to clear out any crud/cloth debris. b. Replace the drain hose altogether (will require a bit of work). Remove the back panel (small) that holds the drain hose in place and disconnect the clamp that connects to the drain hose to thepump outlet. The whole drain hose can be purchased for under $20 at your local hardware store...
Good Luck!

Machine not working (whirlpool duet fron load) error code f21

This error code indicates that drain times are longer than expected. This could be a problem with one of the washer parts including the drain pump itself, how the drain hose enters the stand pipe, or maybe something is stuck somewhere in the drain system and is preventing the water from flowing properly.

Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.

Remove the three screws that hold the lower access panel in place. Here you will find the pump and the all important sump clean out, or as we like to call it, the coin catcher.

I have an error code that says "LD", what does

The LD stands for Long Drain and it flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on. Check to see if the drain hose or drain pump is clogged or is the drain hose situated too high.

My maytag neptune mah8700aww is showing a nd code do i need to replace my pump

I would first check the drain stand pipe to see if it is clogged in any way. You can watch it during a drain cycle, assuming your washer is draining, and see if it backs up in there. The next area I would check is the drain hose itself. Make sure it is not kinked, or blocked either. You can check for blocks by pulling the hose off and running a semi rigid object through it. A close hanger, straightened out will work most of the time. If all is clear, and you are not getting any other codes on your display, then the pump is the next thing to check.

My bosch nexxt wont drain and flashes e04 checked imoeller and cant find any clogs impeller spins freeley

The 03 error code is the drain. Disconnect the drain hoses and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the correct type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum isn't getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from your house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if the block is in your plumbing, and not in the machine. Assuming that your filter is clean.

Will fill with water but will not wash or spin. than has a code nd

HI, your machine if programed to shut down if there is a drain issue. this (nd) code represents a drainage issue. check the drain hose for kinks and, make sure the stand pipe isn't clogged.

Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
