PF Error Code for Appliances


<p><br /> <p>There is one<b> <i>Error Code that is almost universal to most any appliance</i></b>. The<b> PF or Power Failure code</b> is usually the same no matter what <b>type of appliance</b> or <b>brand</b> you are working with. Even with the fact that this <b>error code is so common</b>, I still see many questions on <b><i>www.Fixya.com</i></b> that are asking <b>what the PF Error Code means</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>So now the next question is this.<br /> <p><br /> <p>What causes the <b>appliance to give you the PF error code</b> in the first place?<br /> <p><br /> <p>The most common cause of your <b>appliance giving you the PF error code</b> is a problem with the <b>power coming in from your utility company</b>. Of course if there is an <b>interruption of power</b>, and then the power comes back on you will get the<b> PF code</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>Some <b>appliances will give you the PF code also if the power voltage goes low</b>, or goes into a <b>brownout</b> condition. Depending on the sensitivity of the <b>appliance control</b> you may also get the PF code for other reasons such as <b>frequency problems</b> or <b>voltage fluctuations</b> or <b>power spikes</b>.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The other <b>problems that can cause the PF error code</b> can be internal to the appliance.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Loose wires going to the circuit board</b> or the control can also be a <b>cause of the error code</b>. If a <b>wire terminal end</b> happens to get <b>corroded</b> or loose, the <b>vibration from the machine</b> can cause slight power problems and this can <b>cause the PF code to be displayed</b>. Finding the cause of this type of problem is like finding a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can cause it to be displayed by <b>banging on the side of the appliance</b> or <b>slightly moving the wiring harness</b>, to see if you can get the error code to display.<br /> <p><br /> <p>The bottom line about this <b>power failure error code,</b> is that it is <b>power related</b>. Finding the exact cause can be difficult. If you are continually having to <b>reset the appliance</b> then check to see if all of your appliances are giving the same code. This will indicate <b>utility power problems</b>. If only <b>one appliance is giving the PF code</b> then it is probably internal to the appliance.<br /> <p><br /> <p>

PF code comes on


Check all the wiring to the dryer and even the wires in the wall socket. Sounds like there is a loose wire since you keep getting the power failure (PF) code on the dryer.

as per heatman The most common cause of your appliance giving you the PF error code is a problem with the power coming in from your utility company. Of course if there is an interruption of power, and then the power comes back on you will get the PF code Loose wires going to the circuit board or the control can also be a cause of the error code. If a wire terminal end happens to get corroded or loose, the vibration from the machine can cause slight power problems and this can cause the PF code to be displayed. Finding the cause of this type of problem is like finding a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can cause it to be displayed by banging on the side of the appliance or slightly moving the wiring harness, to see if you can get the error code to display.

The bottom line about this power failure error code, is that it is power related. Finding the exact cause can be difficult. If you are continually having to reset the appliance then check to see if all of your appliances are giving the same code. This will indicate utility power problems. If only one appliance is giving the PF code then it is probably internal to the appliance.

Have kenmore 61951 dryer PF comes on go thru the steps it turns on and then shuts off what could be the problem


PF is a power failure error meaning electricity has been interrupted to the machine. Any electrical interruption to the machine such as a circuit breaker being reset or weather related power outage can cause a PF error code. Try resetting the appliance by disconnecting it from the outlet or switching off the circuit breaker for 20-30 minutes, then restore the power. If the reset doesn't work I suspect the control board has failed.

What does PF stand for? getting that message several times lately


What you could do is get the service panel off the base of the machine.
On the backside of it is the tech sheet which gives explanations of the codes given.
You would thin it stands for Power failure and it might just be a faulty breaker. They recommend the washer have its own dedicated line without any other things on that line. Some codes require a ground fault interupter on the receptacle near any machine that uses water in case of flooding. That could be causing the PF. themobilian_2.png
