Nd code, water left in tub with the nd error code. What could be the problem?


sounds like your fill tube has been flooded, there is a plastic tubing that detects water pressure of the water sounds like it has been removed and now has water in it, which is not letting it drain all the way because the vacuum is picking up it is empty when the spin cycle stops and why it stops open the machine if you havent already and look for it the hose and a float valve work together to stop water when full and shut off the pump when empty this seems to be your problem. this fill valve and if it has the fill tube make sure there is no fluid in it also.

Door will not open if machine not emptied immediately cycle ends


This is an anti-flood protection, since water would flood the kitchen if you could open the door. If the machine shuts down for some fault and leaves the drum with water in, then it is advisable to drain the drum down via the small hose at the front of the machine. Simply remove the plug and empty into a large container until the drum is empty. You can then start to work out why the cycle ceased prematurely.

My machine will not finish a cycle and just stays filled with water.


It sounds as though you either have a clog in the drainage system of the machine, or a bad drain pump.

Flooding in both drawers of dishwasher


I suppose "flooding in both drawers of ..." implies water is not draining out. Is that right?

It is a very little information to give you any clear solutions.

Did the water get into the drawers without starting any wash program? Most likely it is the backflow from kitchen sink back through the dishwasher drain hose. Does your kitchen sink plumbing have an air gap sowehere. If so, is it clear?

If the water is the back flow then it is likely to be smelly and you do not want to run it through the dishwasher. I would suggest take the drain hose out from under the sink downpipe and drop into an empty bucket. Then take all the fixtures out from the drawers and empty out water using a small container.

Put the washer arms back and run each drawer on a short rinse cycle collecting the drain water in the bucket. If cycle runs clear, then get plumber to check the kitchen downpipe.

Reconnect drain hose.

Hope this helps.

Washer does not spin out and drain water. what could be causing this?


Possible pump failure or maybe just drain filter blockage , refer to user manual , clean filter , replace and re-try N.B. If machine is still full of clothes and/or water you will need to remove this first or you risk flooding your kitchen floor.

Machine wont go into spin cycle


The pump fiter is probably blocked.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Locate, and remove large black hose on bottom of tub.
Remove plastic filter inside, and clean.
Refit filter and hose.
Should now be o/k.
Before you do anything, lay the drain hose down into a bucket or bowl, and drain all the water out, so you do not have a flood when you remove the hose.
please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
