Question about Kenmore 82822 Electric Dryer
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?
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.
