SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Error COde "nd"

I had the exact same problem. nd code (no-drain) at the end of the cycle and when I opened the door the machine was still full of water. I took the back panel off the washer and disconnected the drain hose from the pump. (You're going to get quite a bit of water gushing out at you so be prepared with towels or a shop vac.) At this point you should see a little rubber disc over the end of the section you just exposed on the pump. This is a little drain flap. Just lift it up and you should be able to see into the pump a little bit. At this point I poked around in there with my finger and found a hair pin stuck in the pump! I wasn't able to get it out from this end of the pump so I disconnected the big rubber boot which connects the wash drum to the pump. Then I was able to twist the pump (counter clock-wise) and release it from the washer base. I didn't have to disconnect any wires and was then able to see into the other side of the pump and pull the hairpin out. Put everything back together and it's worked fine ever since. I've never even looked inside a washing machine before but it really was really fairly simple. Now my husband really does think I'm a domestic Goddess. I said he should take me out to dinner with the money we saved on a service call!!

Hello,

There is a manual door release tab in the dispenser area. You have to take the screws out and remove the dispenser to pull the tab and release the door. This is a pretty common issue, if you haven't yet you should contact your Maytag authorized dealer and ask about a more permanent solution. Hope you can get your clothes out.

Thanks

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Error COde "nd"

This is now the 3rd time this has happened. The 1st 2 times it cost me ~$100 to have a technician come in and fix.

This time, I did it easily. For my Maytag Neptune washer, I removed the back panel (2 screws). On the bottom tray is the water discharge pump. On the output side of the pump there is a small cavity under the rubber flapper where a nickle fits perfectly. I removed the nickle, reattached the output drain line. started it up ...

and viola! the problem solved.

Try these steps:

1.) Take the washer outside. 2.) Loosen the two screws on the back panel and remove the back panel. The pump sits on the left-side of the opening. There's a black water hose with a metal clamp; 3.) squeeze the metal clamp with your fingers until it's loose enough to slide away from the pump. 4.) Separate the hose from pump and the trapped water will pour out and the door will then open; and 5.) clear any blockage from the drain hose and the pump.

Nd keeps coming up


Hello,

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.

May tag Neptune showing codes


Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.

Do
Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.

FL
The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.

Sd
The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.

PF
The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.

Nd
The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.

LO
The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.

Lr
The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824

NF
The "nF" code appears when the washing machine has tried to fill with water and has failed. Verify that the inlet hoses aren't kinked and that the faucets are fully open.

Od
The "od" code appears when you must open the washer door. The Maytag Neptune washer requires that you open the door between cycles.

Other Codes
* If your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays any codes that are not listed above, contact Maytag Neptune Priority One Service for assistance. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824


Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Error code ND cannot get door open -soggy clothes inside


The "nd" indicates "no drain" and would usually mean something is wrong with the drain pump.

I would suggest checking the drain pump for obstructions or if it hums or tries to run.

Most likely there is a piece of clothing in the pump or it's bad and needs to be replaced.

The wrong soap might cause excessive suds and create a drain problem.

The image below will help you remove the front panel to access the pump.

If you get the FL how do you get the door to open??


  1. Your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.

How do i fix nd code for mde5500ayw maytag neptune


There are two possible causes to the "nd" code. The first is with the pump itself. Either is is blocked or it is simply worn out and needs replacing. The second is a malfunction with the control board. Unless you find a blockage to the pump there is no way to know which one is the cause of the "nd" code without some testing or replace these items.
If you are unafraid of facing your washer with tools in hand then you should be able to test the pump. As for the board, all you can do is check it for damage most likely caused from a component melt down. In which case it's going to need replacement.

But check for blockages first because that will cause the "nd" code.
I hope this helps and good luck.

CLOTHES STUCK IN WASHER!!!!!!


If you open up the dispenser tray on the top of the machine, there should be a red cord. This is the manual release for the door. All you have to do is pull this cord and the door opens. If the cord is missing, you will need to remove the top of the washer to get to the latch. I hope this helps you.
