My whirpool dryer panel comes on but when you push the start button!, it clicks off and then displays the pf code.


PF is a Power Failure error meaning electricity has been interrupted to the machine.

Any electrical interruption to the machine such as a circuit breaker being reset or weather related power outage can cause a PF error code.

To remedy;

Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the PF in the display.

Try to start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button.

If you continue to receive the PF error code, the control board may need to be replaced

PF Error Code for Appliances


<p><br /> <p>There is one<b> <i>Error Code that is almost universal to most any appliance</i></b>. The<b> PF or Power Failure code</b> is usually the same no matter what <b>type of appliance</b> or <b>brand</b> you are working with. Even with the fact that this <b>error code is so common</b>, I still see many questions on <b><i>www.Fixya.com</i></b> that are asking <b>what the PF Error Code means</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>So now the next question is this.<br /> <p><br /> <p>What causes the <b>appliance to give you the PF error code</b> in the first place?<br /> <p><br /> <p>The most common cause of your <b>appliance giving you the PF error code</b> is a problem with the <b>power coming in from your utility company</b>. Of course if there is an <b>interruption of power</b>, and then the power comes back on you will get the<b> PF code</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Some <b>appliances will give you the PF code also if the power voltage goes low</b>, or goes into a <b>brownout</b> condition. Depending on the sensitivity of the <b>appliance control</b> you may also get the PF code for other reasons such as <b>frequency problems</b> or <b>voltage fluctuations</b> or <b>power spikes</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The other <b>problems that can cause the PF error code</b> can be internal to the appliance.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Loose wires going to the circuit board</b> or the control can also be a <b>cause of the error code</b>. If a <b>wire terminal end</b> happens to get <b>corroded</b> or loose, the <b>vibration from the machine</b> can cause slight power problems and this can <b>cause the PF code to be displayed</b>. Finding the cause of this type of problem is like finding a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can cause it to be displayed by <b>banging on the side of the appliance</b> or <b>slightly moving the wiring harness</b>, to see if you can get the error code to display.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The bottom line about this <b>power failure error code,</b> is that it is <b>power related</b>. Finding the exact cause can be difficult. If you are continually having to <b>reset the appliance</b> then check to see if all of your appliances are giving the same code.

FDB4315LFC2 runs then stops and flashes pf ?


Good Morning Friend,

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.

-Best Regards-

My Maytag Neptune Dryer stopped running & is


as per heatman The most common cause of your appliance giving you the PF error code is a problem with the power coming in from your utility company. Of course if there is an interruption of power, and then the power comes back on you will get the PF code Loose wires going to the circuit board or the control can also be a cause of the error code. If a wire terminal end happens to get corroded or loose, the vibration from the machine can cause slight power problems and this can cause the PF code to be displayed. Finding the cause of this type of problem is like finding a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can cause it to be displayed by banging on the side of the appliance or slightly moving the wiring harness, to see if you can get the error code to display.

The bottom line about this power failure error code, is that it is power related. Finding the exact cause can be difficult. If you are continually having to reset the appliance then check to see if all of your appliances are giving the same code. This will indicate utility power problems. If only one appliance is giving the PF code then it is probably internal to the appliance.

Flashing pf


pf indicates power failure, even a slight glitch in the power can cause this. If stop/clear does not clear the fault, unplug the unit for a few mins. and plug back in. pf may reappear, again press stop/clear, this should clear the error at this point if it had reappeared. if not then further investigation will need to be done.
