I would check for loose connection in your power cord or outlet first.

This PF error or fault code indicates that the appliance lost power temporarily. Press CANCEL to clear the display.
The fact that it is doing this regularly points to the main control printed circuit board being faulty.

When the unit is off, open the door and spin the drum, does the noise occur? If the answer is no then there is nothing wrong with the bearings. Chances are the hall sensor on the motor is on the way out. Call for service and ask them to replace it. Make sure you are using a "HE" branded detergent,,,, less is best.

Check the door lid switch. Maybe it's not closing good. Try to stick a screwdriver in the switch.

Thanks

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
(If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: LG wm2655hva front loader won't stay powered up. Initially showed a PF code, now shows 3 dashes. Power button works for 5 seconds & shuts down machine....

Hey Kemp!

  • Unplug the machine and hold the power button to reset.
  • OR TRY Unplugging the washer for 5 minutes to see if it will reset itself.
  • If NOT, you will have to replace the control board to fix the problem.
Best of Luck!

Why would machine throw a PF error code in spin cycle?


The PF error code indicates "power failure" condition. The fact that it was indicating on the display while fully loaded tells me that you have a bad electrical connection somewhere on the machines PC boards or supply.
The spin cycle is also triggering this condition when the vibration on the machine shakes the "bad" connection and causes a brief loss of power to the machine.

Hi There
I have this for you and i hope this will get you in the right direction. Let me know how this goes. By the way Merry X-Mass and a Happy New Year.

LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
