It blinks "PF" to indicate that the cycle is interrupted due to a power failure. Press Start to continue the cycle or press Stop/Cancel to clear the display then restart the cycle.

Unplug the dryer for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control if the display does not clear out or if the dryer cannot be restarted. Indicate the complete and exact model number of the dryer for further and specific troubleshooting repair advice.

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
