HI, there may have been a power surge that shut this unit down or, the junction box may be shorting the power sector. this will damage the main control in this case. i recommend shutting the power off by, pulling the unit plug from the wall socket or, shut the circuit breaker off. let the unit sit for 5 minutes without any power. this will reset the logic chip.

Power the unit back up after this 5 minute wait to see if the reset worked. if the PF is still present, this will confirm a main control fault. replace the control in this case.

**check the power cord junction point for worn connections.

I have had my Kenmore HE2 dryer for a little over a year. Recently, I am getting a "PF" in the display and the dryer stops after the dryer is on for a short time. This happens 3 out of 4 times...


PF is a power failure code. Try turning the breaker completely off and back on again. If it continues to happen you may want to call an electrician as your circuit may not be able to handle the strain which could be potentially hazardous.

Power went out and dryer is blinking "pf" and no buttons work


It blinks "PF" to indicate that the cycle is interrupted due to a power failure. Press Start to continue the cycle or press Stop/Cancel to clear the display then restart the cycle.

Unplug the dryer for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control if the display does not clear out or if the dryer cannot be restarted. Indicate the complete and exact model number of the dryer for further and specific troubleshooting repair advice.

Digital display


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.

Dryer won't start


Check the plug, both the male and female side. Sounds like a loose connection. Check the connections going in the back of the dryer too...remove the little plate (with it unhooked) and check the tightness of the wire.
