SOURCE: PF indication

You are having a power issue with the plug outlet or the junction box at the bottom right of the dishwasher.  To be sure, run an extension cord and use a different outlet in the kitchen.  If after a couple of loads, the PF problem doesn't come back, have the outlet checked.  If it does, you will need a qualified LG tech to come out and see what's going on.

If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:

Heating element
Drying fan
Thermostat
Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.

Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.

Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat

SOURCE: Frigidaire dishwasher not completing cycle.

hi,
The cycle doesn't complete
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer

Water-heating cycle
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. 

On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. 

Timer
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. 

I see an error code
If your dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

Good Luck
Thanks for using FixYa

Frigidaire dishwasher pf dims and stops


Hello Colton Rawlings, thank you for your post!

Based off what you are describing "PF" stands for power failure on a Frigidaire dishwasher. If the lights are dimming then your appliance flashes "PF" it could possibly be an issue within your panel or your appliance is not getting enough power to it. I would recommend contacting a professional to come and diagnose your appliance properly. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

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-
