Customer Question
I have a Kenmore...

I have a Kenmore HE dryer, The dryer stops drying after a few minutes, and trips the circuit breaker and there;'s a "PF" error message.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The dryer is about 5-7 years old but I don't have the model number. I have reset the circuit breaker 3 times and it runs for a few minutes.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

It depends on how difficult to repair. The dryer also gets real hot on the outside too,

  1. What part of the dryer gets hot?
  2. May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information? The tag is around the opening where the clothes are loaded.
