Question about Dryers
Do I need to replace the thermistor
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.
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

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
PF error code means power failure and is displayed when the circuit board also known as the electronic control board goes bad and needs a replacement. Before replacing the control you can also check the thermal fuse which is inside the rear panel on the blower wheel housing and replace if it reads no continuity. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
