The fault code PF means a power failure occurred or the power to the dryer was interrupted by any means while it is running. The interruption can be due to a power outage/failure or a power cord loose connection to the electronic control board. Pressing the Pause/Cancel button clears out the display; otherwise, unplug the dryer then let it sit for at least 15 minutes.

Remove the three hex-head screws from the rear flange of the dryer top cover to access the machine control electronics and check the power cord connection if the issue is not resolved above or if the fault code keeps on popping up. The top cover screws have nylon flat washers on them. Be sure to use these screws when you reinstall the top cover. Lift the rear of the top cover and slide it back so the tabs clear the catches on the bracket, and remove the cover from the unit. Make sure that the tabs slide under the bracket catches when you reinstall the top cover.

Remove the three screws from the machine control electronics board bracket and pull the bracket away from the side of the dryer in order to access the connectors. Visually check P1 harness, the five-wire harness on the upper left corner of the machine control electronics where the power cord connects and make sure the connector is fully inserted into the electronic controls and the terminal connections are clean. Reseating the connection several times will help clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the connection

The
machine control electronics definitely needs replacing if the issue is not addressed by the outlined procedures above.

Has code PF and will not start Beeps constantly


PF means a power failure has occurred.
Press and hold the cancel button for several seconds to clear the error. Then press start. If the problem still exist you can unplug the unit wait several minutes an plug it back in. If the error still appears the control board maybe at fault.

DISPLAY SAYS "PF"


HI, there may have been a power surge that shut this unit down or, the junction box may be shorting the power sector. this will damage the main control in this case. i recommend shutting the power off by, pulling the unit plug from the wall socket or, shut the circuit breaker off. let the unit sit for 5 minutes without any power. this will reset the logic chip.

Power the unit back up after this 5 minute wait to see if the reset worked. if the PF is still present, this will confirm a main control fault. replace the control in this case.

**check the power cord junction point for worn connections.

Error PF


PF simply means power failure, not really a fault as much as a visual indicator to let you know that you've experienced one. i would check your electrical outlet,sounds like a loose connection
