The ND code means 'No Drain' and it is probably just something caught in the pump. I’ve seen where a coin can get in there and keep the pump from starting.

Some other items known to stop a Neptune pump: Rubber backing from a rug, rubber bands, bobbie pin, lens from a flashlight, tooth pick and a bra wire. Maybe you had something different in your pump? If so, please comment with what you discovered in your pump...

If you have a floor drain you should be able to drop the discharge hose to the floor and let gravity pull the water out so you can take the pump out and get a good look at it.

What detergent you use could be causing suds to stay on the machine sensor and it thinks it has not drained. The only other things are the elevation of the drain hose and the sensor itself.

Nd keeps coming up


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.

Hi; I have 55FLBWW and the np light keeps flashing, and will not go any farther.

Are you sure its NP and not ND the nd is for not draining, either your pump filter is plugged of the pump is clogged up and needs cleaned out, coulsd aslo be your drain hose. Best way to check is use a shop vav on the drain hose and **** up all the water you can that way, then take the filter cover off the pump filter (in front and under the bottom cover) and check for pluggage, if none is there then the pump may be clogged or not working.

Stops mid-cycle, does not drain, displays nd error code?

That code is telling you that the unit is draining to slow. After 15 minutes it is not below the low water level and will not spin out. The best repair for this is to replaced the pump on your unit.

Washer wont rinse

we had the same problem with ours....nd means not draining and that means that there is something, probably coins stuck in your drain hose. pull the drain hose out and check it for change and make sure something isn't stuck.
