Dryer displays PF when start button is pushed

Our dryer powers up normally but when you try to start a cycle, it displays PF. The manual says that it is related to a power issue but power is at the right voltage and level. Any suggestions?

I have a Maytag dryer model: MEDE300VW0 that is showing a PF code. I have tried unplugging, pressing the cancel button, etc. as recommended on various internet sites. PF code persists.


i know that the voltage overseas is different form the usa,that's telling you there was a power failure while the dryer was running,check the back of dryer to make sure you have 240 volts going to the dryer,you could have a bad power cord or something to do with power source.

My whirpool dryer panel comes on but when you push the start button!, it clicks off and then displays the pf code.


PF is a Power Failure error meaning electricity has been interrupted to the machine.

Any electrical interruption to the machine such as a circuit breaker being reset or weather related power outage can cause a PF error code.

To remedy;

Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the PF in the display.

Try to start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button.

If you continue to receive the PF error code, the control board may need to be replaced

My Frigidaire dryer will not start. It shows a PF trouble code. What does this mean?


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.

Power went out and dryer is blinking "pf" and no buttons work


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.
