Question about Dryers
In almost all cases this pf code is caused by a defective dryer control board, this board is part of the control panel that u use to set the dryers diff settings and start it into the dry cycle, the board is around $200 but some tests must be performed to verify this is the problem, if u don't know how do electrical testing procedures and don't have required DVOM (Digital Volt/Ohm meter) then by all means call a qualified service technician, Sears is a good choice and sells this line of dryers. below u will find a link to the service manual for the dryer, follow diagnostic steps that start on page 3-1 of that manual, be patient, the manual is a free download but free users must wait a minute to download while the download site tries to sell u the premium service. Link to service manual on PDF file format is below.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
PF error code means power failure and is displayed when the circuit board also known as the electronic control board goes bad and needs a replacement. Before replacing the control you can also check the thermal fuse which is inside the rear panel on the blower wheel housing and replace if it reads no continuity. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
