SOURCE: Dryer not drying

Check your lint filter. Put it under running water to see if the water goes through it. Chances are it is clogged up. Wash it and put it back. Should do the trick.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite keeps tripping circuit breaker and small flash

Hello jaybebo84,
May be coincidental that you had a short circuit ocurr in the back panel after your wife dusted but the problem is that you now have a short circuit which will trip the breaker. If you can unplug it and slide it out to gain access to the back panel, remove the cover and look for carbon or flash burn on some of the components in that area. Usually when you get an arc like that the evidence of the component is pretty easy to identify. You may see some carbon or equivalent on a component which once located, could simply be removed and replaced. Sears usually has exploded views drawings of all their appliances and you may be able to get a copy from the store service area. Good Luck..
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically

your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.

SOURCE: dryer won't start

Check the plug, both the male and female side. Sounds like a loose connection. Check the connections going in the back of the dryer too...remove the little plate (with it unhooked) and check the tightness of the wire.

My whirpool dryer panel comes on but when you push the start button!, it clicks off and then displays the pf code.


PF is a Power Failure error meaning electricity has been interrupted to the machine.

Any electrical interruption to the machine such as a circuit breaker being reset or weather related power outage can cause a PF error code.

To remedy;

Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the PF in the display.

Try to start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button.

If you continue to receive the PF error code, the control board may need to be replaced

Power failure control panel beeps no lights on panel and oven wont turn on. have lights on inside of oven. do i need a code, never have before. always showed PF for power failure.


Was the oven doing a self clean when the PF occurred? If so the cavity limit probably tripped.
Sometimes the owner wants to shut down the process of self clean for whatever reason that also trips the cavity limit. If the oven circuit breaker is weak then their could be a power failure during which the oven was on and that could cause the cavity limit to trip. No lights on panel means the temp inside the oven control panel exceeded normal operating temp and the small inline fuse going into the control panel has melted:

This is what that small fuse looks like. To get to the insides
you usually drop the side trim exposing the screws then the controls fold outward.

What does message 'PF' signify after dryer stops in mid-cycle? Started a small load to dry, and after about 5 minutes, dryer stopped and message PF appeared in digital readout in the estimated time window


This error code indicates "power failure" was detected. This could be caused by a bad/loose connection at either the logic board, the relay board, or at one of the three main power connection terminals on the back of the dryer. The logic board is located inside the control panel. The relay board is located in the base of the dryer. You can unplug and reseat electrical connections at these locations and check the main power cord hook-up at the terminal block. Also check the thermal fuse and test it for continuity. A lack of continuity means a faulty fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.
