i need to know what the error code pf means for a frigidaire gallery model #fgh202465nf1a


Hey Carol, I understand that you are receiving an "PF" error message on your Frigidaire Dishwasher. Typically this error code indicates a power failure. Before considering contacting a service provider, I would recommend resetting the dishwasher by turning off the power to the appliance for about five minutes. After the five minutes return power to the appliance, this should allow the appliance to return to working condition. At this time if you find the problem still persists, you may want to consider contacting a professional technician. The concern could be the control board. Hope this helps! -JK

My Frigidaire dishwasher displays a CO code and won't run. Why?


Good Afternoon Jodi, thank you for your post!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code "CO" and will not run. An error code of "CO" may be a miscommunication within the control panel and you can clear that error code by disconnecting power from it for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to experience an issue with your dishwasher I would suggest contacting a professional technician for a diagnosis to be completed. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Thank you for your post, Cathie Sanchez!

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying error code "S" and will not restart. The error code "S" usually stands for sanitize, this could also be a miscommunication within the control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dishwasher for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to experience issues with the error code I would suggest having a professional technician out for proper diagnosis and repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
