Dryer quit working during a dry cycle and gave a PF code. Turned it back on and it worked. Next day went to dry and pushed power, all lights came on correctly, picked my settings, and pushed start and a small buzz type beep happens with code PF. Unplugged, didnt work. Waited a day and it worked for 2 cycles. Now its been 2 days and nothing but pf. I opened the top control panel checked all connections and dusted. No dice. I opened up the back and cleaned, checked connections, and dusted. No dice. Can anyone tell me where to go from here. Another diagnostic I can run, a part I can replace, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all that reply.:wall:

PF is displayed if there was a power failure while the dryer was running and related to the F30 error code. F30 is restricted airflow. Most of the time it's due to a blocked vent or vent hose. Try a load with the vent hose disconnected from the machine and see if that makes a difference.

I did and I opened the back and completely cleaned the inside of the dryer and the Lint trap. I removed the vent and tested. PF again. I cleaned it out, checked the wiring, and tested. PF again. This really stinks :(. Thank you for taking the time to reply. I appreciate it very much.
