I have an LG RC8001B dryer, the clean filter and empty water lights start flashing when the machine is turned on; they stop flashing once the machine starts drying. Is this normal?

Do not keep it higher temp unless bedsheets are inside.For normal clothes temp must be at normal level.If more steam remains inside then only clothes will remain damp.Look out for correct RPM.This problem comes due to drive belt also. Even it looks tight just replace blindly.Hope this will solve your problem.All the best to you.

Either your heater is blow or your thermal cut outs are blown easy to check and replace ...

The are located at the back of the dryer behind the protuding funny shaped panel...

Check the continuity on the t-stats if no present then replace both of them small round things
then its the heater....

SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt 500 Electric Dryer: lint filter light goes on even though it does not need emptying

I had the same problem and figured if the lint sensor is clogged, covered or otherwise gummed up with lint, dirt, hair, etc then this will continue to happen regardless of wether the lint trap is clean.

So I took my compressor and blew out the slot where the trap slides into...stuff flew everywhere (so watch your eyes or wear goggles). I then vaccumed it up and did it again... and again and again each time loads of stuff came out. Once nothing blew out I loaded the dryer and have not had the problem since...

This makes sense right? so if you can try this solution.

There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.

There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.

So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.

Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.

Hopefully this helps. GB

My dryer stops after a few minutes and all the lights flash. It stops turning and doesnt get warm or hot in that time. I have cleaned all filters and emptied the water. Can anyone help?


I believe it has something to do with the computer circuitry. You might try to reboot it. Unplug your dryer for a few minutes, plug it back in and see if that works. It did for my washer. Good luck.

Empty water light, empty condenser


I experienced the problem with a hotpoint TCYM 750, with the red empty water light failing to switch off. After removing the filter and cleaning it, cleaning the condenser and drying anywhere I had access to the machine still didn't heat and the light remained on. Reading the post about the machine having 3 reservoirs it struck me that one of the reservoirs may be hard to access. So I unplugged the machine and tipped it onto its front. The reservoir drained, I pushed the machine back upright and cleared up some water around the condenser. The drier now works properly and the empty water light is off - job done!

I have a Siemens e44-10 dryer. It works for few mins and that stops. The light looks like. Up of water flashes. I cleaned all filters, and the water tank is empty. Can u help me?


I had the same problem above. I tok the side panel off and disconected the float and cleaned it. I noticed alot of water mixed with dust. I used a dry cloth to get the water away and made sure the reservour was clean. I assembled everything and it is all working. Tips, make sure the condense tray is emptied after each Washington aswell as the dust filter. Clean out bottom filter once a month. This saved me having to buy a new machine and tok just half an hour. Phew, money in the pocket!

Model: LG Steam Dryers DLEX2501R Problem: Shows "Check Filter", while dryer still does the job


do you mean a condenser dryer?, as steam is water doesn't dry anything to well, if it is a condenser dryer the check filter or clean filter light should always come on towards the end of the cycle (varies between models some have both clean filter and empty tank lights on at end of cycle just as a reminder to do so and some don't have any lights), it is simply a reminder for you to clean the filter after each use unless this is something that has only just recently happened

Drum not rotating


If you clean your lint filter after each load faithfully, try removing the dryer vent hose that goes to the outside and inspect it for lint accumulation, water build up, or some other foreign material, as this will restrict air flow and cause your described symptoms. If your are unable to inspect your vent, disconnect it from the back of the dryer and start your dryer to see if it works that way.
