Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
I have gotten these codes today while trying to wash a load of clothes, pf, ob, cL, so I had to take the still very wet load out and tried to let it drain and spinn itsself out but its NOT happening. What is the issue with this machine, its been a pain sense the first 6 months i had it, its one of the first ones out so i am learning that they have problems and of course Seard doesnt stand behind thier product so im stuck, should i be looking to get a new one?
The "PF" error code indicates a power failure to the dryer. To clear the error code, press Stop/Cancel.
If the Stop/Cancel button does not clear the problem you will need to replace the control board on the dryer. The part number for the control board is 3976611, in case you need it.
Ob code = out off balance
cl code =
If the door is securely closed & the CL error code appears, I would recommend checking the door lock switch & wiring harness to the door lock switch. Other possibility; control board.

There was a class action lawsuit settled in 2007 over this specific washer. Mine had $200+ repairs about every 9 months for 3 years before I started have multiple problems in a single day. The repairman said that the the tub and motor simply did not have anything left to be used as secure mounting areas. It was OB (out of balance) and cL (lid was no longer closing properly) and pf (failing to maintain sufficient, stable power to all parts) because most the inside of it no long aligned due to failing mounting and housing. Maybe the techs on here can say if he "blowing smoke up my dirty laundry!"
