PF = Power Failure, did you make sure outlet is ok and not a loose plug? Any short in outlet will do that, OR a loose wire at the motor to the dishwasher. UNPLUG unit and look under it for a gray box that the plug leads from. One or 2 screws will remove that box and verify all wires are connected properly.. MAKE sure unit is UNPLUGGED

What might cause a flashing PF code midway through a cycle? Circuit breaker is fine. Any advice greatly appreciated.


Stop trying to restart it! There is obviously a fault so check your manual. If not in there contact Manufacturer or service agent.

FDB4315LFC2 runs then stops and flashes pf ?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB4315LFC2, starts and then stops, and flashes a "PF" code when it stops. The "PF" code is stating that there has been a power failure. There could be a possibility that your dishwasher is losing power mid-cycle. I suggest checking your home's circuit breaker, the wiring to your dishwasher, and if you have a cut-off switch, checking that as well. I also suggest resetting your appliance, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My Frigidaire electrolux dishwasher model # FDB2310LCC0 trips a pf code 40minutes into the cycle and it is not the circuit breaker. how do i correct this problem?


Good Morning Doria, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Typically PF means power failure and you should be able to start a cycle. Unplug the unit or flip the household circuit breaker. Wait about ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If the error code continues to display, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair it.

Best of luck!

PF, high temp wash and air dry lights blinking. Reset main breaker but no help.


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.

It wont start. the hi temp and heavy button are the only buttons that come on


OK I am not an expert but I have spent the last two weeks learning about and fixing my dishwasher! Hopefully I can save you a headache. Try the following:

* Flip the switch off and on in your breaker/circuit box. May reset your washer.
* If that doesn't work, try running diagnostic/reset cycles by pressing heated dry -normal- heated dry or heated dry-sanitize-heated dry in sequence. If the cycles run fine, you will rule out a power, latch, motor/drying issue. It also may (hopefully) reset your system.
* If normal function still does not resume, make sure your power (from the breaker box) is turned off and unscrew (with a star-shaped screwdriver bit - check your car emergency kit/toolbox, you may find you have it) and open the front button control panel and check all connections. Try carefully unplugging and replugging wires and look for any corrosion/moisture on the circuit board.
* If that does not work, test the circuit board by unplugging the green ribbon cable from the control panel, reassembling with the ribbon cable unplugged, flipping your circuit back on and then closing the dishwasher door. If the drain motor runs, it will show you that there is still some function with the circuit board. Although it doesn't rule out the circuit board completely, it will point to a most likely control (button) panel issue and try replacing that. If the drain test does NOT run, it may be the circuit board that needs to be replaced.

Hopefully some of that helps!

How do you remove the bottom spray arm?


Hello

Unplug the dishwasher. If you cannot access the plug, turn off the dishwasher's circuit breaker in the electrical circuit breaker box to stop electrical power to the dishwasher.

Open the dishwasher's door, and pull out the bottom dish rack. Set it aside.

Hold the lower spray arm still with one hand. Turn the retaining nut clockwise with the other hand until it comes free. Pull the spray arm up and off the shaft.

The initials "pf" come on and prevent our fridgidaire dishwasher from continuing it's cycle. What is the problem?


"PF" generally means Power Failure. First, be sure that the door is latched tightly. Vibration may loosen the latch causing the unit to stop. Also check your circuit breaker. Flip it to the "tripped" position and firmly back to the "on" position.

If this model is an "electronic" unit (for example uses a touch pad for programming), there may be a loose connection somewhere in the wiring prior to or at the junction box under the dishwasher. The electric "noise" generated there might confuse the dishwasher's computer. Best to have an electrician look at this.

Dishwasher stopped working..!!..!! please help


Hi crystal245,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: GE Nautilus Dishwasher suddenly stopped working. NOTHING!! it was fine one day then went kaput the next. I checked the plug in and the circuit breaker but still NOTHING

I run into this often. Ends up being loose, broken or burnt ellectrical connection in d/w junction box most of the time. It's under the d/w behind the kick plate on the right or center. Turn the power off first and remove the wire nuts. Replace wire nuts and/or repair wire ends as nessessary. Beyond that you're looking at a bad control board or failed connection in the unit.

Feel free contact me again!
