Maybe bad solder joint at one of the L, (line or voltage), connections on the board. This is repairable with the use of a soldering iron if that is the case. Also check the connections at the power source to make sure connections are good. Other than this replace the control but check power first.

What dose PF mean


I would check the power to make sure of the polarity, two hots and a ground. Once that checks out ok and still has a problem, check the power cord connections in the dryer, that green wire goes to chasis ground or terminal N, G, and the solid color wires to the line 1 and line 2. If it still trips on PF, then a wiring diagram and tracing the power failure is needed, perhaps a control transformer but its too early to say now. Diagnose.

What when pf error come on


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


PF error means power failure which is generally caused when the control board inside the unit goes bad. You can try unplugging the unit for 15-30 minutes, if the issue returns then the control board needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

the next thing for you to check is your main power circuit breaker if you have one side of the breaker is bad or weak this will cause a power failure.also make sure the wiring to the terminal block is in good order and not damaged.the terminal block could have a problem as well.

Whirlpool Wall Oven sometimes power fails in middle of a baking session. Display goes blank and oven will not work for 10-20 minutes. Then oven will come back on with a PF readout.


Could be several things; 1. Electrical connections in oven are loose. 2.The circuit breaker for the oven could be failing. 3. The electronic control is failing. Make sure when oven is operating, the cooling fan is operating. If the cooling fan is not working, the electronic control will overheat and shut down.

PF means power failure.  Usually you can hit cancel or clear and this will go away.  Let me know if this helps.
