Hello!

Code PF means that a power failure occurred on the control board during the program run.

In most cases, the reason for the code PF on the display is not in the washing machine, but in the problems of electricity supply of your house or apartment.Turning off the electricity or a power surge most often results in this error.

PF means Power Failure!
Unplug both units for 10 minutes, then plug them back in and try operating them. You may need an electrician to investigate why you are losing power to both units

My maytage neptune washer is flashing PF what does that mean?


Hi


Error code PF means power failure. This happens when there is a power surge or the washer is unplugged manually. To reset this error you'll need to turn off the washer and unplug it for 10 minutes. Restart the washer and check, If the error still appears then pressing the Spin Speed key will begin the Board Output Test. This test turns ‘ON’ a specified output after a key press. Pressing the Spin Speed key again cancels the test. Please post back for further assistance if required.

PF(Power Failure) error appears each time the washer starts.


PF simply means there was a power failure since the last time you used the machine.
To clear it - simply power cycle it.
