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.

My kenmore elite wahing machine is blinking PF and done of my buttons are working, the mashine will not run at all. I'ts a black top loader, not sure the year.


Hello
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.

When I plug the machine in it either does nothing or flashes PF then acts as if there is no power. It is the machine not the outlet.


PF just means your house has experienced a power failure since you last used the machine.

Unplug it for 40 minutes to reset.

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer lights light but wash won't start


Sometimes I just have to unplug the machine, wait a few seconds and plug it back in and it works. I guess it resets itself or something.
