Question about Samsung WF337AA Front Load Washer
I got the ND warning light with a full load of clothes in the washer and now the door won't open. Help? How do you override the door lock?
Your water pump probably has debris in it. Remove the back center cover. The water pump is right there. Thread the drain line back through the machine and put the end in a bucket on the ground, most of the water will drain. I used towels to deal with the rest. Remove the water pump and open it up, I found a quarter. Reinstall and if you found debris the machine should work. It took me 1/2 an hour to do this, not worth calling for service.

There should be a manual drainage trap door around the bottom of the washer. You just need to open it up and unscrew the cap and hose and the water should just drain itself free.
Be sure to check the insides of where the water is coming out from for debris. If it's dirty, clean it up and you shouldn't have a problem again.

This has happened to me twice. Both times I found the drain pump seized up with
1st time) The right rim from a pair of reading glasses
2nd time) A plastic toothpick
Both times the object was in the discharge port of the pump. You can see this by lifting the check valve with the pump removed. Removing the pump is simple. Unplug the washer. You have to remove the drain line from where its attached to the rear of the machine (one screw) to remove the rear access panel which slides into upper and lower slots. You will see the pump with an inlet and discharge line attached. The lines have simple squeeze clamps. When you remove the lines, you will drain the wash basin so have towels and a squeegie handy. Remove both lines and wait until the basin drains. When it stops draining remove the pumps electrical connector by squeezing the release catch on it while pulling it. The connector can only go on one way. Remove the 3 hold-down bolts on the pump baseplate. Remove the pump and lift open the discharge check valve and you'll find something there I guarantee it. Remove with needle nose pliers and re-assemble in reverse order.
This is actually a good design because the computer protects the pump by sensing a higher than normal current draw when foreign debris gets jammed in it. It will trigger the ND (No Drain) code and sometimes lock the door. Always check this first before you call the expensive repair man. If its not a jammed pump it will most likely be the control panel/processor. Good luck and always clean out pockets before loading the washer to prevent this,
