SOURCE: have cleaned filter but light still on and no heat

The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

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:

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.

What's your problem? Check filter light keeps flashing


I have several manuals on hand and they all read the same

That could be the lint has a partial blockage in the outside vent and the vent thermal limit is tripped.

My LG dryer says check filter but I've cleaned the wire filter and the lint that was trapped under the filter. It still says check filter. Is there another filter?

I relocated my drier and noticed the same light when I plugged it back in. The owner's manual states that the light comes on whenever the drier is turned on, to remind you to check the one and only lint screen.

Filter light is on. I pull filter - its clean. I put filter back in - filter light goes out. I start dryer. It runs for about 5 seconds and stops

Did anyone come up with a solution to the problem, we are having the same problem, except our dryer keeps running, the filter light goes out, and when the dryer is turn back on the filter light is back on, the filter is clean.

Check filter light wont shut off and setting.lg tromm dryer

You might need to check the exhaust on the rear of the Dryer, or the blower motor iether one has lint inside, restricting the air flow

Turning no Heat, clean filter lights on while turning

usually heat element or high and low limit sensors need changing, check vent lines are not plugged or 220 breaker if split breaker is only tripped on one side?

Won't heat up

Try removing the lint filter from the dryer and with no clothes, start the the dryer, and if it works then replace your lint filter.
Tip: Fabric softener sheets in the dryer can deposit an invisible coating on the screen of the filter and reduce air flow.
