PF is power failure. Your home has experienced a power failure since the last use.

Unplug it for 40 minutes to reset.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis HE washing machine is having problems. We can't find the owners manual but remember that there was something in it regarding reseting the machine. It is starting the cycle like...


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 top loader washer won't start. Power is ok at the outlet Unit is 9 years old, model #110-20096993. Unit worked yesterday. It is a sensor smart three speed automatic washer with catalyst


Actually I didn't need a solution. The unit would not start. It was like no power was coming in. The outlet was good and usually if there is a power failute the unit flashes PF. Well I walked by in a couple hours later and and touched the start button and it worked. Got two loads of wash in. It must
have a loose connection or a dirty connector, but I'll wait until it happens again
Thanks

PF(Power Failure) error appears each time the washer starts.


PF simply means there was a power failure since the last time you used the machine.
To clear it - simply power cycle it.
