Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'nd' for LG's is likely to indicate 'no drain'. I would advise cleaning the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside. Once the water is removed the door should unlock.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hi just read your posting.Sounds like the door lock switch is faulty.Do you get any error codes on the display?Check the door latch that is attached to the door.It is the little hook that latches into the door lock switch.The tension on the hook should be quite firm.Please reply with answers to the question and the condition of the door latch.Looking forward to your reply.

No water that high. But you may have an extra water button that allows you to add slightly more water to each wash load. Water should be just above bottom of inside drum in the back of the drum as it rotates

My maytag front loader washer is saying nd so i turned it off but the door wont open to get the cloths out how do i get the door open ???


Hello

ND error in your Maytag Front Load washer indicates no drain issue. To start with check the drain hose for any clogs and try cleaning it, then check restriction in drain pump assembly or loose wire at the pump. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Can't get the door to unlock? Load in washer is beeping ND..not draining but after several attempts inlcuding shutting power off..still can't get the door to disengage?


In front loader machines there is a safety latch that stops you from opening the door if there is water in the machine. I think it needs power to release the latch, I am not familiar with this model.
You probaly need to drain the water off somehow.

You may need to have the door switch replaced but before that should be done, make sure the wire connector is securely in place.
