Default GE dishwasher PF error code
Model Number: GSD4930X73WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a GE Profile dishwasher (model #GSD4930X73WW) that has recently begun displaying the code PF in the display. It is intermittent, but more frequently lately, to the point where I never know if Ill even get a display to appear. Sometimes its a totally nonfunctioning display, sometimes it shows PF. When PF appears, I can do a reset and things seem to work (though sometimes it stops in mid-cycle). But then its random as to whether or not anything will illuminate in the display. The circuit breaker never trips. Any thoughts how to fix?

PF would be a power failure.. as in unit lost power to the control.. Check the power connection box at bottom left side and ensure wire nuts are good and tight..

"PF" means power failure. The first thing I would check is proper connection at the power outlet.

Remove the bottom panel and check how the power cord is connected to the dishwasher.

If there is nothing wrong then check the door switch, the wire harness and the last thing is the power board board.

Default PF power failure

What I found on my GE profile was that when I mpressede the LED display the washer would cut off. Step 1 remove power to prevent man electrical shock this is a must do !!! Second step remove the inside dishwasher panel held on by 7 screws and remove the locking knob to gain access to thee LED panel remove the outer conector first then use a flat tip common screwdriver to pry open the panel then you will see another srip that is connected to the panel. You have to pull the tabs back to remove the wire strip. Once removed remove the two screws that secure the LED circuit board once removed check the back of the display for corrossion I found that mine was where the first outer connector was on the circuit board. I used a small common straight tip screwdriver to remove the build up between the soildering once you can see between all the soildering reassembly the dishwasher and reconnect power and restart your dishwasher as you normally would. I am not an expert just an aviation avionics Technition with an extensive electrical background. I hope this helps you out it is cheaper to do it yourself and these steps are not that difficult once you get involved the task. It does have some basic mechanical and electrical talent to do this type of maintenance. I hope that tyhis helps you out Chuck Allen ccajr13@hotmail.com
