Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

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.

10 year old sears kenmore elite dryer, PF light will not stop flashing even after holding start for 10 seconds or after holding stop button for 10 seconds


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


PF error means power failure which is generally caused when the control board inside the unit goes bad. You can try unplugging the unit for 15-30 minutes, if the issue returns then the control board needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Mi secadora electrica oasis kenmore elite aparece un codigo PF que significa eso como puedo resolverlo


PF means power Failure unplug hold the cancel button for 3-5 seconds if the pf doesnt disappear then unplug the unit for 7 minutes this will make the control reset on the board if the pf still doesnt fade then you would have a control issue and most likely have to replace the control or call a technician if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded Thanks Rick

I HAVE THE PF CODE FLASHING ALONG WITH THE HIGH LOW OFF LIGHTS AND PRESSING BUTTONS DOESNT WORK


Hello

PF error code means Power Failure, it is displayed when the unit is either not getting enough power or the power board also known as the electronic control board has gone bad and needs replacement. As pressing buttons doesn't work then first unplug the unit for 15 minutes and then check, if this does not help then replacing the control is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore Elite Oasis 110.67087600 Dryer will not power up. No power at all. Prior to this it had a PF flashing. House power checked good.


PF - Power Failure - PF 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.

If no-go.. the timer is failed due to a power spike and must be replaced.

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.
