Error "pf" just means that your dishwasher thinks you had a power failure. You should be able to press any button and the error should go away. If it's not going away, call warranty because the control board on your dishwasher shorted out I'm sorry to say.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
