Nd on display, not finishing wash cycle or draining
ND error means No Drain condition.
It can mean the Pump has failed - or the strainer is plugged.
Likely the latter of the 2 since you mentioned washing rubber rugs :)
You will need to access the motor and remove the pump's inlet hose and check the screen for debris.... clean out, and re-try.
If i remember correctly - the pump is easily accessed from the rear of the machine. (remove the rear panel)
If you remove the hoses and find them clear - the pump should be checked for proper operation next - but start with the screen first.
While it is apart - look into the pump's impeller to be sure there isnt thread or something impeding the impeller.
Keep me posted.

Maytag neptune front load washing machine will not
Check the drain hose and clear it from any debris that might be blocking the water from draining out completely. If the drain hose is clear of debris, check and clean the pump. Disconnect the machine from the power outlet before servicing for safety purposes.
Remove the rear access panel to access the pump and disconnect the wiring harness from the terminals of the drain pump and the pressure switch.
Loosen the clamps holding the drain hose and the tub hose to the pump assembly. It is a good idea to spread a towel under the pump before loosening the clamps.
Remove the hoses and rotate the pump assembly counterclockwise to release the pump assembly support legs from the keyed slot in the base of the washer. Remove the pump assembly from the washer.
Clear the pump impeller from any debris that might be causing it to work improperly. Clean the tub and the drain hose.
Reassemble the pump, the hoses, and reconnect the wires to the terminals of the pressure switch and the drain pump. Reinstall the rear access panel and run the machine.
Replace the pump (part #25001052) if water still do not drain out completely.
Remove the plastic bag covering the pressure switch. Press in the locking tabs on the back of the pressure switch and pivot the pressure switch off the pump bracket.
Grasp the pressure switch and lift the nipple of the pressure switch from the pump cap.
Install the pressure switch into the new pump assembly in reverse of the steps above.

Washer doesn't stay running
For being 10 years old...I'd say R.I.P Neptune. A 10-year-old dryer is going to cost you more in repairs than the cost of a new machine! And even if it is cheap enough to fix, the parts may be no longer available. I used to work at the Harrisburg PA Sears Parts/Service Center...trust me...I know.

I have a 20 year old washing machine, Model:
No, there is no filter.
As to discoloring clothes it is usually a dark stain.
My thoughts are there is an outside possibility that transmission oil might be in play.
Oil when mixed with water(especially emalsified with soap) will produce a somewhat whiteish creamy solution.
Try this, run a complete full warm water wash with the machine empty on normal speed.
When complete, start over again, but do not allow it to go beyond the wash cycle. Shut the machine off and allow the water to set in the washer for 1/2 to 1 hour. Then check the surface of the water for signs of any type of oily substance.

Front loader is not draining water
for using FixYa. If your
washer won't drain, check these:
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer
spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In
many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the
clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets
between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the
pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the
hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
To remove the
sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove
the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the
outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers try to grab and remove the clothing
through the port.
can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the
agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy
to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a
qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.
If the drain
line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears
to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace
It doesn't spin
If your washer
doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably
has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the
pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually.
If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.
It pumps, but
the water returns
If the water
that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle,
your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow
drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the
draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for
If the drain
hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.
If your drain
hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break
accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further
