Howdy, PF means power failure. There was evidently an interruption. If it has a clock this requires a reset, otherwise you should be able to clear it by reselecting your preferred cycles or timer.

I have a PF in the window but the keypad will not work. I unplugged it for 2 days, plugged it back in and it worked ONCE.


"PF" on some units means there's been a power failure. Unfortunately, sometimes when there's a power failure, there's also a power "bump", and your oven may have been exposed to a short-term voltage spike. Sometimes these spikes exceed 130 volts on a 117 volt line. It's possible the main control board may have been damaged by something like this.

My hotpoint microwave says PF -- the buttons are not working either - but i notice some are now - like the light etc -- the clock doesnt work


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


PF error means power failure which is generally caused when the control board inside the unit goes bad. You can try unplugging the unit for 15-30 minutes, if the issue returns then the control board needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Does not turn on all the numbers on panel are zero's and blinking, did try unplugging still nothing


Flashing zeros are a sign of a momentary power loss. Usually you also get a Pf error also. Not always....

Try this and if it does not work let me know.

Press Stop / cancel
Press clock
Set time
Press clock

Attempt normal use.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

PF ?


Not actually dead, just apparently unresponsive.

PF means power failure. It either got reset or unplugged, etc.

If it's not responding to the keys, then you likely have a shorted keypad or trouble on the control board.
