If you put a light load in the dryer will not trip the circuit at all. That means heavy load made the motor work harder and over heat, it going to trip the circuit , pretty soon, the motor will be warn out.

SOURCE: Trips breaker and get "PF" on display even when not tripped

This error code indicates "power failure" was detected. This could be caused by a bad/loose connection at either the logic board, the relay board, or at one of the three main power connection terminals on the back of the dryer. The logic board is located inside the control panel. The relay board is located in the base of the dryer. You can unplug and reseat electrical connections at these locations and check the main power cord hook-up at the terminal block. Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: circuit breaker tripped, i reset it and the dryer

try resetting the breakers again as they may have tripped again as sometimes they only move a bit and they look like they are ok but they are not.I would also unplug the dryer for thirty seconds to reset it and start again.

My Frigidaire electrolux dishwasher model # FDB2310LCC0 trips a pf code 40minutes into the cycle and it is not the circuit breaker. how do i correct this problem?


Good Morning Doria, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Typically PF means power failure and you should be able to start a cycle. Unplug the unit or flip the household circuit breaker. Wait about ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If the error code continues to display, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair it.

Best of luck!

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.

We just replaced the power cord and outlet for a Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer and now it will not go on. I flipped the circuit breaker on and it said PF and now I get nothing.


PF error = Power Failure - 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.

Here is a site to double check the wiring:

PF means Power Failure. Check the breaker in your breaker box. The dryer uses 2 breakers that are put together. Reset the breakers to see if the problem gets fixed.

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.

Code "PF" = N/A


Soft Touch -PF- means power failure, nothing else. Most likely the problem is not with the dryer. The circuit breaker became too weak for the dryer load. I beleive replacing the circuit breaker will solve the problem. Gendos...post back

Tripping circuit breaker


if the dryer trips the breaker right away its a problem with the dryer if its after a while its the breaker. call an electrician to make sure the wires are secured tight to the breaker and the breaker is rated correctly. i can almost guarantee its the breaker.
