PF is a power failure. The unit is detecting a loss in power, but it should operate fine after the code is cleared (unplugging and plugging back in).

If the problem persists, then either you have an issue with the AC power coming from the wall outlet or the main board is faulty. Also make sure to check all the connections on the terminal block (where the AC cord attaches to the dryer) to make sure there are no loose wires or screw terminals.

PF code comes on


Check all the wiring to the dryer and even the wires in the wall socket. Sounds like there is a loose wire since you keep getting the power failure (PF) code on the dryer.

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

Power went out and dryer is blinking "pf" and no buttons work


It blinks "PF" to indicate that the cycle is interrupted due to a power failure. Press Start to continue the cycle or press Stop/Cancel to clear the display then restart the cycle.

Unplug the dryer for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control if the display does not clear out or if the dryer cannot be restarted. Indicate the complete and exact model number of the dryer for further and specific troubleshooting repair advice.

Has code PF and will not start Beeps constantly


PF means a power failure has occurred.
Press and hold the cancel button for several seconds to clear the error. Then press start. If the problem still exist you can unplug the unit wait several minutes an plug it back in. If the error still appears the control board maybe at fault.
