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

I have a Maytag dryer model: MEDE300VW0 that is showing a PF code. I have tried unplugging, pressing the cancel button, etc. as recommended on various internet sites. PF code persists.


i know that the voltage overseas is different form the usa,that's telling you there was a power failure while the dryer was running,check the back of dryer to make sure you have 240 volts going to the dryer,you could have a bad power cord or something to do with power source.

Why is there a PF code and dryer won't start?


The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the appliance lost power temporarily. Press CANCEL to clear the display.

I have a Kenmore Electric Dryer Model 110.60072990. When I press the touch pad on the Select Cycle to select the temperature nothing lights up on the selection or the timer. When I flip the house breaker...


From what you mention, my take on the issue is that a Fuse or board will either work or not work.My guess is a loose connection or damaged cord somewhere. Assuming you are not electrician , what I would suggest is just to check the cord from the wall outlet to dryer and look for any bends, or damage to the cable, WARNING do not touch it while still connected to outlet if there is any sign of damage. Also use a hair dryer as an example , and just plug it into the outlet to check if the electricity outlet itself, has not perhaps failed.Failing this, a loose earth connection, or wire to unit might have failed and best bet here is to have an appliance person check it over, good luck

Maytag neptune dryer won't start has power lights will come on but ut won't run flashed PF before it quit


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.

Dryer died


Hi! kiatt28
According to the manufacture (Whirlpool manufactures this model for Kenmore) PF is Power Failure, they do not recommended replacing the control. Have an electrician check the wall receptacle or breaker panel. I suspect you have a loose connection, sometimes it is just time to replace the receptacle.

Whirpool estate dryer teds680eq2 does NOTHING when start button is pushed.


NO POWER CAN BE A MULTITUDE OF PROBLEMS.
1 DOOR SWITCH 2. THERMAL FUSE. 3 MOTOR 4. TIMER
5. HOUSEHOLD VOLTAGE. 6. PUSH TO START SWITCH.

CHECK ITEMS IN THE ORDER LISTED.

THE DOOR SWITCH HAS AN ARM THAT EXTENDS DOWN INTO THE SPACE WHERE THE DOOR CLOSES. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER. PRESS IT WITH YOUR FINGER TO SEE IF IT CLICKS. THEN CLOSE THE DOOR AND SEE IF IT CLICKS WHEN THE DOOR SHUTS.
IF NO CLICK, REPLACE THE SWITCH.

THE THERMAL FUSE IS LOCATED BEHIND THE LOWER BACK PANEL OF THE DRYER DOWN BE THE EXHAUST. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED.
JUMPER ACROSS THE TWO WIRES. PUSH THE START BUTTON. IF THE DRYER COMES ON, REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE AND CHECK FOR PROPER OPERATING TEMPS.APPROX 160-175DEGREES FAHRENHEIT.
IF IT GOES BEYOND 220 DEGREES, REPLACE THE CYCLING THERMOSTAT LOCATED BESIDE THE THERMAL FUSE.

THE OTHER ITEMS SUGGESTED ARE MORE IN DEPTH AND REQUIRE A KNOWLEDGE OF READING SCHEMATICS.
