Maytag Dryer PF Code – Troubleshoot And Diagnosis
If a Maytag dryer’s display shows a “PF” error code, it means that the dryer has had a power failure. The error can usually be circumvented by holding down the “Start-Pause” button. Let’s see some other methods to solve this error.
1. Reset The Circuit Breaker
If your dryer suddenly starts PF code, you need to turn off the breaker and wait for one minute. Then flip it back on and check if the error code still exists. If not, turn it on again for one minute to confirm that the error code won’t pop up after restarting.
Reset the circuit breaker, and monitor the dryer for another minute to ensure that the error code does not display again. Likewise, verify that the operation is normal before using the dryer again.

2. Check Power Cord Connection
Dryers need to be checked for proper power connection and any exposed wires, as a dryer is an electrical appliance, and this poses a fire hazard. Most manufacturers recommend that the dryer have the power cord plugged into an outlet at least six inches away from higher heating appliances like ovens and stoves to prevent fire hazards.
Checking the power cord is a simple way to ensure that your dryer is working properly. Just look along the full length of the cord and make sure it is free from any tears or frays. The other important thing to check when you think there could be something wrong with your dryer’s power cord is making sure that it isn’t loose.
