Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My washer gives an nF code. I have disconnected the hoses and cleaned the screens and hoses. Still get error. I believe it is clogged where the hose enters the washer at the inlet valves. How do I remove these valves to unclog them?

Hello,The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time (especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad.
Thanks

Error code nf


It would really help to know the make and model of your machine as codes mean very different things depending on what manufacturer's machine they're showing on. However, I'm giong to take a blind guess that this is a Samsung? If I'm right then it means "No Flow" (Of water) you should check the following (Which I have stolen from the Samsung repair forum!)
1. Water is shut off at rear of washing machine. Check and make sure water is turned on.
2. Water inlet hoses are kinked or crimped. Check hose to ensure they are not kinked or crimped in any way. This will still let a small amount of water into the washer but not enough for the sensor to be satisfied.
3. Water fill valve screens are clogged with mineral or calcium deposits. Turn the water off and remove the hoses from the "Hot" and "Cold" side. Once the hoses are removed you will see a small screen tucked inside both fill valves. The screens simply pull out so they can be cleaned. Usually it is on the "COLD" side where you'll find the clogged screen.
4. Make sure the door is shut tightly. Yes, if the door is not shut all the way you may possibly get this error code on the display. Open and close door ensuring it closed correctly.
If the above hasn't fixed your error, then you may have a faulty fill valve. Rather than pasting further information from the same forum, I'll just give you a pointer to it :) http://www.appliancerepairlesson.com/2014/01/11/samsung-washer-error-code-nf-fixed/

Can I get a list of error code and what they mean and how to fix. I keep getting nF as an error. What does this mean?


It means 'not filling'. So either nor or both of your water lines are turned off or just barely open, or the filter screens on your hose washers are clogged. Clean/clear them, or check water flow and you should be good to go.

Check the filter screens. At the water hose connector there should be a screen just inside. Clean it with a stiff toothbrush.

Error code nf


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

The Error code "nf" is No Fill. Turn off the water at the wall connection and remove your fill hoses at the washer. Inside the inlet to the water valve there are inlet screens. Use a thin knife blade or a scribe on the outside of the screens and remove them. Wash them under slowly running water while rubbing them with your fingers to clean them off. After cleaning reinstall the screens and connect your hoses to the washer.
Next remove the hoses at the wall faucett / hose bibb and check for inlet screens in the hoses. If there are inlet screens in the hoses at the wall connection remove them and clean them. Otherwise reconnect the hoses.. turn on the water... check for leaks and test your machine for proper filling. If it still does not fill or you get the nf code again you most likely have a bad inlet water valve. Either the diaphragm is stuck or... one of the water valve solenoids have failed. The solenoids and water valve assemblies are NOT repairable. IF they fail the only remedy is replacement. Solenoids will read resistance with a meter. The resistance should be the same for both soloenoids. If either one of them reads open the water valve must be replaced.

If the steps above do resolve your problem, respond here and I will help you at that time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
