PF code comes on


Check all the wiring to the dryer and even the wires in the wall socket. Sounds like there is a loose wire since you keep getting the power failure (PF) code on the dryer.

I just plugged in the dryer it has a "PF" message and won't do anything, unplugging dosen't change anything....


Pf is power factor. It is showing you there was an interuption of power. Some models you have to wait at least 3 minutes before you can press stop / pause / cancel to clear the PF. If you still keep getting PF go to the main CB panel and turn off the Dryer CB by physically pushing to breaker to the OFF position to reset the breaker then back to on. You will have to wait again before you can clear the PF. If after resetting the breaker you still get the PF in the display you may have to find out what power you actually have at the outlet. 115V or 230V. Other factors come into play also like 3 or 4 prong connections vs the previous connection. They do make a difference and if the power cord was installed incorrectly the PF will never clear until the cord is connected correctly.


Thanks for using FixYa.
