Why is There an Nd on the Display Panel of the Front Load Washing Machine?

Last Update Date : Apr 26. 2018

No Drain Condition (Nd)

If your washer is beeping, and the display is flashing "Nd", your machine is showing a no drain condition which is usually related to a backed up drain hose or a clogged debris filter.

The drain hose coming from the back of your washing machine should not be inserted more than 6 inches into the drain/stand pipe in your home. Inserting the drain hose too far into the drain may cause a syphon effect preventing any water from draining out of the washing machine. This will cause an "Nd" error.

IMPORTANT:

 

Many customers remove the drain hose fastener attached on the back of the washing machine during installation. It is a white plastic strap secured with a metal screw, approximately 18 inches above where the drain hose comes out of the washing machine. Do not remove it. It is in place to prevent syphoning.

Checking for a Clogged Debris Filter

WARNING: If you were running a hot, or sanitize cycle when Nd flashed, the water in the washer may be very hot. Allow the water to cool for approximately 1 hour before performing this procedure.
