LG Dishwasher Error Codes


PF Error

CE Error


PF Error
A PF error on your dishwasher indicates that there was a power failure. This function is designed to help protect your dishwasher in case of a power outage or interruption.

When power is restored, press and hold any button on your dishwasher controls for 10 seconds to clear the display.

If the PF error has appeared multiple times on your dishwasher when there has not been a power outage in your area, this could be caused by the circuit breaker not being able to support the electrical requirements of your dishwasher. Your dishwasher must be powered by a dedicated circuit breaker at 230 volts, 50Hz AC only, with a minimum of 15 amps. The use of an extension cord is not recommended.
