SOURCE: Error flashing and won't reset.
PF stands for power failure. the first you should do is check your house breaker and make sure that you did not trip the fuse.
Does anything run? Can you hear the motor running? If not, you have no power coming into the machine. In this case it's the main control board that needs to be replaced.
If the motor hums, it means you have power to the d/w, in that case you need to replace the touchpad.

Probably a control panel failure. This unit does not ventfrom the front like most do, so there needs to be some clearance above the top of the tub to avoid blocking the vent fan, otherwise moisture gets trapped in the machine and works it's way into the control panel eventually.

Possible solution. I had the same problem of "washing" light flashing last year and now today. Warranty has been expired for awhile, so no harm in trying. What worked for my situation was removing the six screws for the back of the plastic control cover. Take of the plastic cover. There are are two connectors to the HANDLE with white and black wires. To be safe I would shut off the ciruit to the dishwasher. Safety first. Carefully disconnect and inspect the contacts inside the connectors. Do not insert any metal objects if you left the power on. I believe that the moisture from the dishwasher can degrade the connectivity. I cleaned the contacts with q-tips and re-installed. Be careful to not bend the contacts. If you had sound, you could hear my dishwasher running. Total cost is about three cents. I believe that the connectors do not full close when corroded, which prevents the completion of the circuit to the controlls. The flashing light indicates that the door is open, when in fact it is closed. Hopefully this will help someone. Semper Fi

You may just need to reset your control board. Go to the link and it will explain how to reset the control board as well as explain what might cause the issue and how to fix it.

The ER error code means the touchpad is defective..sometimes that can be just a loose ribbon cable connection to control board. or if that seems tight the touchpad which is part of the console should be replaced

Tips for a great answer:
Good Afternoon Sammy, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided you would like to reset your Frigidaire dishwasher because it is flashing "ER". The best way to reset your dishwasher is to flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to receive the "ER" code it could be a possible problem with your main control board or keypad. I hope this is helpful information. -Matt

Good Afternoon Delia Collins, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is flashing an "ER" error code on the panel. Typically, the "ER" stands for an error code sometimes to help clear out a false error code you can perform a reset on your dishwasher. In order to do that you would need to disconnect power from your dishwasher for approximately ten minutes.
If you continue to experience an issue with the error code I would recommend contacting a technician for proper repairs. The technician will be able to properly diagnosis your dishwasher and this will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Good Morning Jimpat Holmes, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you are having an error code "ER" displayed on the panel of your Frigidaire dishwasher. Normally, "ER" stands for error code and that can be a miscommunication within the board. I would perform a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dishwasher for ten minutes. If you continue to receive an error code you could be experiencing an issue within the control panel or faulty wiring harness. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Thank you for your post, nansie Bento!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is flashing "ER clean S". That error stands for a membrane switch failure, which means that your main control board has detected a key stuck or pressed in for more than a minute. You can push all the buttons down to attempt to locate the key that is stuck. It could be a potential issue within the keypad or main control board. You could try to clear the error code by resetting your appliance, which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt
