If the dryer continues to run when you open the door you will need to replace the door switch. Here is the part to order.

SOURCE: Lint Filter Light comes on and cycle is interupted

I just found that the filter itself was not allowing airflow- I tested by blowing through it with my mouth- no airflow. I cleaned it with a high pressure air hose and noticed that the flow is much better now. I cleaned it by hand several times, and washing in water (which may have made theproblem).

I have a Kenmore HE2 dryer that was working just fine. My husband stopped it in the middle of it's cycle to check on the clothes. He cleaned the lint trap and put back. When he closed the door and tried to...

you can unplug it for about 30 minutes, but I would venture to guess that the sensor which is located below the lint trap(if you look down the trap you will see to screws) is dirty and need to be cleaned, clean gently as not to break the sensor. Good Luck Tim

Our LG DLE0442W electric dryer is now flashing the Check Filter light and will start, but only run for about 5 minutes before shutting off. I have cleaned the lint trap completely and have also tried...

Clean any lint that got by the filter as best you can. If you can, get into the housing that surrounds the filter and clean it, but be careful not to damage the moisture sensor.
Check that the duct (behind the dryer) is clear of excess lint and has no obstructions (kink, bird's nest, etc.).

Good luck

KEYS850JQ0-Light works inside dryer when open but won't start even after plug pulled out a bit and put back in. Any answer? Also previously noticed; while dryer is running and I open the door it keeps...

The door switch is bad, the part number is 346704_1_s.jpg PS346704
that is what it looks like. To get to it take the lint trap out and remove the screws around the lint trap door , be very carefull not to loose them down the lint trap shoot, next take a screwdriver and pry the front end of the top of the dryer up, it will just pop up. The switch will be right in front and center inside of the dryer attached by one screw. Make sure the dryer is unpluged before doing this. You can set the top back on by just pressing down on it after replacing the switch, it will lock back in.

Longest 6 minutes ever

I wiped off the two rows of sensors located behind the lint trap inside the drum. Now my dryer shuts off at 0 minutes. The clothes are still a little bit damp so I let the dryer run for 10 more minutes. Try it before replacing the computer board.

Dryer won't turn off.

Is it a mechanical timer you turn (the "clickety-clank"-kind) to set the time? Sounds like something in it has been worn out. Shouldn't be too hart to get a replacement for it,t and you should also probably be able to replace it yourself unless you're very "un-handy", or want to play it safe.
