Dishwasher Repair Guide: How To Fix a Dishwasher - ACME HOW TO.com
You need to use the service manual, work through, all the procedures, to isolate your problem,and repair. The DIY sites will also help
Also try to unplug and leave unplugged for 5 - 10 mins, and reconnect, this sometimes "Resets" it. Also it may NOT apply, but the Fix below regardless, works, many times, and is well worth a try.
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

To reset a Frigidaire dishwasher you have to press a sequence of buttons three times. This is familiarly called button dance
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash.
If you don't have a heated dry then do the same button dance using "drain off" or "air dry" instead of heated dry.
If that does not work, contact the manufacturer on number listed on use and care manual, as the appliance may have a defective timer control.

Hello babe_dog01 - PF typically appears in window when dishwasher is first installed, or when power has been interrupted. HI-TEMP WASH, SANITIZE and START/CANCEL backlighting will also flash. To clear, touch START/CANCEL pad or resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Since you have already done so and it was ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately. Dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a communication error, wiring failure or faulty control board.
