Question about LG DLE5977 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Your LG Did you get this problem fixed?

My LG Dryer Model DLE 5977S has a check filter light on. I have cleaned the inside filter and the Filter hose and it still stays on. How do I know what to do about it?

Were you able to fix this?

This is normal. This is just a reminder to check the filter at the beginning of each load. The LED is not connected to any sensors and is just there as a reminder only.

Check filter blinking on LG dryer and dryer won't start


There is a sensor at the bottom of the filter slot and it could be bad or plugged with lint. The whole service manual is here: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/974184/Lg-Dlex5101w.html?page=45#manual

It is going to show you the page with that sensor, but you can look at all the pages, I suggest page 23 for diagnostic tests.

LG Tromm DLE8377NM check filter but filter is clean


You say lint hose is disconnected. Are you referring to the exhaust vent to the outside? I would suspect this vent is clogged or a vent flapper outside may be stuck shut.

Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

There is a reminder light to "Check Lint Filter" near the lower right of the cycle knob. It will come on every time the power button is pushed. After cleaning the lint filter, if the "check lint screen" light does not go off, it is likely that the touch pad control will need replacement.

My LG DLE 5977 S Dryer doesn't dry the clothes completely. I have to restart it multiple times to get a load to completely dry.


Check to see if there is a kink in your vent hose in backj.
Go outside to verify
Clean filter with dishwashing liquid and brush
Run water on filter first to verify it doesn't go through

Severe noise - drum is jammed and won't turn - LG DLE-5977 dryer


A piece of clothing is probably caught in the blower wheel.
Remove lint filter.
Use flashlight to look into filter housing to the lower left.
You may be able to retrive the item if you can see it.
Try rotating the drum in both directions while looking.

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).

The check filter light is just a reminder light and cannot be reset.  Nothing to worry about.  Just keep the filter clean before each use.
