PF is showing you that there is a power problem. Check your dryer circuit breaker at the power panel. This can be a sing that one of the 2 breakers has tripped. Push the CB hard to OFF and then back to ON. Then try and start your dryer. If that does not work just respond here and I will help you.

Try selecting "No Heat" after resetting the CB and see if the dryer starts. If it does you could have a bad heating element that caused the breaker to trip to begin with. Sometimes when the heating element fails the broken link will contact the chassis and cause the CB to trip. Heating element failures are usually caused by poor airflow. You may want to look for any signs of lint in your dryer to include the lint filter area and all the way to the outside wall exhaust point.

    Hi again, I mentioned after trying the CB rest to let me know what you have found out. The process would have been read for shorts to ground from the power plug to the chassis then the next step would have regretably been to change the control board. Hopefully the tech did a circuit check and at least gave you a 90 day warranty on the part. Here is the truth. If there is a circuit problem in the unit it can very soon damage your new control board. Make sure you keep your paperwork from the repair. You just may need it if the tech did not troubleshoot the wiring / circuits in the dryer.

    Glad to hear your up and running again (fingers crossed for a no repeat)

Hello there:
This is due to a loss of power to the dryer
PF flashes if the washer loses power during a running cycle. The washer does not flash PF when it is first plugged in.

Press START to continue the cycle from the moment that power was lost -OR-

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display and completely cancel the cycle.

Start for just 1/3 second then stop with error PF ?


Hey Andy, thank you for your post!
From what you have described your Frigidaire dryer, GLEQ2152ES, is running for a few seconds and then displaying an error code of "PF". The error code of "PF" means there is a power failure and this could be an issue within your control panel or power source. I would suggest performing a reset, this could help clear our any miscommunications within the panel, and you can do this by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. I hope that this information is helpful towards your repair. -Matt

What is wrong if my Frigidaire front load dryer


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer has been providing you with an error code "PF". Typically "PF" stands for power failure this can happen if power is shut off during a cycle or the dryer receives insufficient power, which could be an issue with your power cord or control panel. Let's perform a reset on your dryer and you can do this by unplugging the power cord for ten minutes. If you need any additional assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt
