    E3 is displayed when
    there is a control or electronic error. Try disconnecting the power cable for one hour or so, if you still get the message, you will have to test the control board.

Also unplug it for one minute. And then plug it back in and open and shut it 6 times in 12 seconds.
This will reset the washer.

I have a NFW7200TW Amana Washer. The problem is my wife said she saw a E3 error and then a nd error. I fixed the pump for the nd error but I don't know what the E3 error is. When I tried to run th

E3 Error: Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual check shows motor is not moving. (Locked, Hall Sensor fault). Replace the hall sensor.
The "hall" sensor is an internal circuit of the motor. It "tells" the machine control board, what the motor is doing, it's similar to a tachometer on the dashboard of a car. In your case, you want to do the resistance checks on the wires of the CN9 and CN8 connectors at the main control board in the front of the washer (it's easier and more indicative). Unplug the CN9 connector from the control board(red, white and blue wires) testing the pins inside the wire harness connector: from pin#1 /blue to pin#2 /white you should read 3 ohms resistance from pin#1 blue to pin#3/red, you should read 3 ohms resistance. from pin#2/white to pin#3/red, you should read 3 ohms resaistance. That will tell us the motor windings are damaged or not. At the CN8 connector, unplug the connector from the control board and insert the meter probes into the end of the wire harness connector; pin#4/orange to all other pins in the connector should have infinite resistance. pin#3/blue to pin#1/pink should have 4.7 ohms resistance. If you have these resistances, the motor and wiring are OK and you'll need the control board. If the resistances are not within 10% of the ones listed, you'll need to check the wiring harnesses and connections from the control board to the motor, and replace the motor if all checks OK.
Here is a link to the motor.

Amana NFW7200TW washer - door seal ring has detached

The ring is a clamp that keeps the rubber part, called the bellow, attached to the front panel of the washer. To reinstall hook the edge of the bellow around the lip of the opening in the front panel (the hole through which you put your laundry). Then take the clamp and seat it in the groove of the bellow behind the lip of the front panel. The spring on the clamp should pull the bellow tight to the opening of the panel.

Like so:
