MY maytag neptune dryer center wont start when I press the start button on the bottom unit it shows PF

The PF is a power failure code and it indicates the control is not sensing any line voltage
Check the circuit breaker for the dryer is not tripped. The PF could be caused by a voltage drop during a storm but you should be able to clear it and run the dryer

Is light supposed to come on when door is opened?

Yes the light comes on when the door is opened and when the microwave is active! The PF code indicates a Power Failure, press clear or cancel to reset or unplug for a few minutes and re plug!

Only printing one disc after changing colour cartridge red light on using original parts for PF 2

I have had this problem and tech support said to adjust the sensor on the left that the cartridges pass by so the sensor can sense the foil strip on the cartridge. I moved mine a little closer to the cartridge path, but obviously you can't move it too much or the cartridge will hit the sensor.

FL code on a Calypso Whirlpool washer

FL= Flood Condition
FL flashes if any overfill condition

occurs. This condition occurs when

excessive water in the tub causes the

overfill switch to trip. The control must

realize that the trio was due to an

overfill condition instead of a suds lock

condition in order for FL to be displayed.

With an overfill condition, the beeper

repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no

time out. The pump is cycled in drain mode

for 30 secondson 30 seconds off untill the

overfill switch resets or power is

discontinued to the unit.

Note: Press STOP/CANCEL to clear display on all error codes

Causes of flood condition. Inlet valves

stuck on, Sediment in water level pressure


Other codes:
PF power failure
Er control lost settings during PF
LF Long fill Clogged inlet screens
CE Com error between motor and control
Ld Long drain Clogged/slow drain/pump
CA/CI Motor amping up
ob off balance load
Sr relay failure no control to motor
LS Lid switch no signal from lid switch, error occurs if the motor and control disagree as to the position of the lid switch. Usually means corosion is buit up in the switch and the motor knows the lid is shut but the control does not. Cose appears when start button is pressed.
open lid= flashing display time If the lid is opened time remaining flashes in display. Close lid and press start to continue.
SL Suds Lock Current draw on motor is sensed by motor control and a suds lock is declared The control trys 3 times to fix this by doing a mini cycle, SL is displayed if the unit was unable to correct the problem. This problem is caused by:
Bad pump
Extra heavy load
Excessive detergent
or Excessive suds/wrong stuff

I found the answer in another group, from Sunshine3240:

Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps:
Turn the printer off.
Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on.
Release the 'go' button.
Press the 'go' button 2 times.
Press the 'go' button 5 times.
The toner light should be off.
The paper light should be on.
Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.
