The message does not only refer to filters, badly written.
There is an air flow restriction that the machine senses and is warning about.
check the fan and fan housing for lint that has got past the screens, then pull the dryer away from the wall and check the exhaust duct for lint, all the way to the wall
then check the outside wall vent for lint build up in the rodent screen

CHECK FILTER LIGHT COMES ON. i HAVE CLEAN THE FILTER AND HAVE TAKE A FILTER BRUSH AND CLEAN THE COMPARTMENT BUT THE MESSAGE KEEPS COMING UP.


The filter and compartment are only a portion of the exhaust system. Make sure you clean the pipe from the dryer to the out doors and clean the exhaust fan below the filter.
Good luck.

I am getting a caution to "Clean Filter". What does this mean?


Most clothes dryers have a lint filter. Has it ever been cleaned? If so look for another filter that the dryer may have (the users manual can tell you).

Dryer keeps stopping - check filter light on


For Sgt 48 - You are not reading the original message very well - The original help question didn't say they saw check filter at the beginning or end of a dry cycle they indicated that the dryer STOPS MID DRY and says check filter - this is not a friendly reminder, it is indicating something is wrong and the filter needs to be completely cleaned out (and past the filter down in the interior of the dryer) and if that does not work then you need to also check the dryer hose for kinks, lint build up, etc. Lastly, reset the dryer by unplugging it (or flipping the breaker) for a minute or so and hold down on the start/pause button for 8 seconds while it is unplugged (this will reset the error code for check filter, among other things).
