Amana Washer wont drain.

I threw a load of clothes in last night. Choose quick wash, at 19 mins left it starts beeping and shows code nd on the pad. I tried to start it and when it was trying to drain it sounded like a metal was being throw around in it and would not drain. So I turned it off and turned it back on and same thing. Then of course I couldn't get the door open to get my clothes. But I did eventually get it open.... Thank you Biker Dave. The closest appointment they have is 3 weeks away. I have 5 giant dogs and a 3 year old I wont make it with out a washer. What do I need to do? The tub of the washer is still full of water too.

From what you're describing it sounds like the drain pump is blocked. The nd error code indicates "no drain". If the unit can't drain it won't spin. You're going to have to slide the washer out far enough to remove the rear panel; be careful not to damage the floor. Once you get the rear panel off you will see the pump. Be sure to have plenty of towels & a small container to catch water. I am sending you instructions from the service manual to remove and replace the pump. Another possibility is the drain line is blocked or something is stuck in the tub to pump hose.

Remember to

disconnect power

before attempting access.

I have replaced the drain pump after the same symptoms and still got the nd error.
When I removed the last one there were a couple of picks stuck in there.
When I removed the pump the water came pouring out of the hose so I'm guessing there's nothing wrong with any obstruction.
