Kenmore Elite HE3 "PF" isue

Model number 11082826102, we got a PF code last night, reviewed the manual and checked the breaker, the plug, opened the door and tried to reset the maching. At that point, all of the lights on the panel went off. When we open the door the inside light comes on. Any ideas?

    I replaced the thermal fuse last night and still no luck. I checked the breaker, the voltage at the plug, and at the terminals on the back of the dryer....all good.



    Question: It's a 4 -wire plug. I was getting 120 on the green and red wires (to ground) but not the white wire. Is that OK? Not an electrician. I know just enough to be dangerous.

  • rljennings Dec 31, 2008

    How do I get to the control panel? I started to pull the plastic cover off the front but wasn't sure what I was doing and didn't want to bust a clip. Suggestions?

A four wire plug should be three phase 220v, and normally would be wired green for ground, and red, black, and white would all have 110v when tested to ground. Since you indicate you are not an electrician I caution you NOT to open your electrical box or take chances with electricity. You can be seriously injured or killed.

However, in your circuit breaker box there should be a three pole breaker labeled for your dryer. It seems likely you have a broken white wire between the breaker box and the dryer. Why did this wire break? Did it overheat and melt? Did a squirrel chew through it? This needs to be investigated. Wires rarely break on their own, overheating indicates a failure in the system somewhere and the breaker should have tripped before the wire melted.

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.

    He3 is not the real model number, it is a style. You can take your
    real model number which should be somewhere inside the door and go to
    Sears website

    http://www3.sears.com/intro.shtml
    and enter your model number. Then you can see diagrams of each
    section of the unit. It will allow you to see what comes apart and
    what does not. If you need further assistance, just reply. Thank
    you, Ann

    1. Turn the dryer off but keep the electrical
    supply connected.
    2. Make sure that the dryer is empty and that
    the lint screen is clean.
    3. Close the dryer door.
    4. Select Heavy Duty, Timed Dry, More Time
    or Less Time, End of Cycle Signal (Louder)
    and Start.
    5. If error codes E1 or E2 flash on the display
    after 1 minute and the dryer turns off,
    the thermistor, or the wire harness, is either
    shorted or open. Check the wire connections
    at the thermistor or the machine
    control electronics board. If wiring checks
    okay, replace the thermistor.
    6. If the dryer seems to operate normally, remove
    the exhaust vent and start the dryer.
    7. Select the desired temperature cycle to be
    tested, and select 20 minutes of Timed Dry
    heat using the More Time or Less Time
    pushbuttons.
    8. Hold a glass bulb thermometer capable of
    reading from 32°C to 82°C (90° to 180°F)
    in the center of the exhaust outlet. Measure
    the exhaust temperatures with the
    heater on and off. The correct exhaust temperatures
    for the various settings are
    shown in the following chart.

Sears Electric Dryer is flashing F01 What is wrong?


The F01 indicates a failed electronic machine control board. This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines. You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.
You can order a new control board from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer - no power (PF code)


Press and hold the "Start" button to restart the dryer cycle if the "PF" (power failure) error code appears. This code often appears when a cycle is interrupted before it completes. You may also check the breaker or household fuse, and ensure the machine has not come unplugged.

We just replaced the power cord and outlet for a Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer and now it will not go on. I flipped the circuit breaker on and it said PF and now I get nothing.


PF error = Power Failure - error code indicates a power failure during the dryer's cycle. Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.

Here is a site to double check the wiring:

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer model # 110.8483220. It has no power. We tested the plug and it tests for 110V of power, and the wire connection at the top of the dryer (on the outside) has power. But...


Your dryer is electric. This means it needs 2 electrical phases (hot wires) and one neutral to wor. If you measure 110v across 2 phases - one of them is out.
Unplug the dryer. Find the double breaker for your dryer on the breaker panel.
Pull breaker to the off position hard (do not overdo it,as you can pull the breaker out), and then back to on position.
Check voltage between the two phases, it should read 220-240v. Check the voltage between each phase and the neutral (middle prong), should read 110-120v. If you don't get these readings - call electrician.
If you get the proper voltage, plug the dryer back in. If it does not work - Dryer needs repair. Likely a thermal fuse is blown or problem with power wiring inside.

Kenmore Elite HE3 Dryer PF on control panel,


HI, there may have been a slight power failure within the home breaker unit or the dryer may have lost power to the control for some sort of reason.

I recommend a thorough inspection of the terminal block on the back side of this unit. make sure the power cord is attached tightly and the wall outlet is secure and holding the power cord correctly. if everything looks great with the terminal block and the power cord is plugged in the outlet correctly, simply unplug this unit for 5 minutes to reset the control. after the 5 minutes are up, plug the unit in once more and the PF alert should reset.

Make sure the breaker box in your home is working properly. (the actual breaker switch for the dryer must be in the on position)

Dryer working but no heat


The manual says that two circuit breakers used,and that the dryer
can spin but no heat if one of them tripped, check your panel and see
if any breakers are tripped. If this was the problem,have an electrician
check the circuit.

Kenmore 67082 "PF" power failure code


Check your circuit breaker. Reset it even if it doesn't look tripped. It is a dual switch and sometimes you can't tell if one of them is tripped. Then try it. When you reset the breakers leave them off for about 10 minutes before turning them back on.
