Frigidaire Dishwasher showing error code PF with 'hi-temp wash' and 'no heat dry' lights flashing
Dishwasher stalled during rinse cycle with flashing error code CL. When I couldn't resolve it, I tripped the circuit breaker. After that, dishwasher continuously flashes error code PF along with flashing 'hi-temp wash' and 'no heat dry' lights. Dishwasher remains non-response. Model # FDB949GF, Serial # TH92954023.

Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Electrolux dishwasher is tripping your circuit breaker during the cycles. This could be a wiring issue within your dishwasher and you may need to have a professional technician come out. The technician will have the appropriate tools needed for pinpointing the issue within your dishwasher. Best of luck! -Matt
It sounds like you just need to reset the controller. This is done by running (or partially running) a diagnostic cycle, which will clear the error. Here's how to do it: Depending on the model, and the keys you have, press the following sequence of keys quickly (with less that 1 second between key presses:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.
You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up. Let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the diagnostic cycle and clear the error.
Note: On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.
When you say "trips out" do you mean the circuit breaker trips? If so the breaker in the electrical box may be bad. Also do you have anything on that circuit pulling high amps when the dishwasher is running? Also when does it "trip out" during a pump cycle or when the heating element cycle starts?
If the pump does not work at all then the pump may have went out. If it happens when the heating element cycle starts then it may be the circuit is overloading or the breaker is bad.
I see you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher and you are receiving error code "5". However, it appears "5" is an invalid error code. May I have you model number please?Typically you can locate your serial tag on the inside wall on the left hand side. With this information I can better assist you with pinpointing the issue.
In the meantime, let's attempt resetting your dishwasher. You can do this by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position for roughly ten minutes. This usually clears false error codes. -Matt
I'm not sure of this, because the manual does not have an error with a E. I can fine error F4. It says it encountered a faulty temperature sensor or element. If the heating element burned through the night you circuit breaker tripped (Sure it was not the ground fault circuit breaker?), then the dish washer can't heat the water, so the program can't continue. The program stops (waits) till the chosen temp is reached. If the water stays cold the program can't go on.
So also check the heater in the machine. I hope you are aware everything in the machine runs on high (or at least dangerous) voltages, so be careful not to work in the machine when it is still connected.
I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB4315LFC2, starts and then stops, and flashes a "PF" code when it stops. The "PF" code is stating that there has been a power failure. There could be a possibility that your dishwasher is losing power mid-cycle. I suggest checking your home's circuit breaker, the wiring to your dishwasher, and if you have a cut-off switch, checking that as well. I also suggest resetting your appliance, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.
Are you sure the breaker is big enough to carry the Amps needed to start the drying cycle. You know that due to inductance it takes almost twice as many amps to start a motor as it does to run it.Find out how many Watts it uses and divide it by 120VAC and it will give the maximum amps it will draw. See if the breaker is high enough amp for it. A 25 Amp breaker should be efficient. I hope this helps you and if I can help you in anyway in the future let me know.
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.
Hello babe_dog01 - PF typically appears in window when dishwasher is first installed, or when power has been interrupted. HI-TEMP WASH, SANITIZE and START/CANCEL backlighting will also flash. To clear, touch START/CANCEL pad or resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Since you have already done so and it was ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately. Dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a communication error, wiring failure or faulty control board.
