Filter light goes on stays on and dryer will not go Our dryer stopped and we cleaned out the filter front and back remoed the hose abd vacuumed it all out it still flashes filter and will not start

Try to clean your filter this way...use dish washer soap and hot water to clean your wire mesh air filter...Fabric Softner Sheet deposit a invisible film on the wire mesh filter and blocks air flow. This is a frequent problem not everyone is aware of.

If this answer your question and you have done a good cleaning of your filter I am happy to help you. Continue the drill at every filter lint removal.

My new hot point vented dryer is beeping 3 times when I hit start with the lights flashing, the red clean filter light is staying lit although it is clean??? It's only 6 weeks old


Check the vent system behind the unit, or disconnect it and run the unit. Either way sounds like the vent system is obstructed somehow. Good Luck

Furnace blinks seven times lockout do to retries will light up for 5 second then it turn off

7 blinks means unit is locked out it will stay locked out for one hour then try to light again it will try two times before lock out. Possible causes. Low gas pressure, Faulty gas valve, Faulty hot surface ignition or burner problem may cause this. Most common is Hot surface igniter.

Not much heat and clean filter light comes on when filter is clean

This sounds like air flow restriction. Test by disconnecting the hose at the back of the unit, form an opinion of air flow and see if filter light stays off.

If ithe filter light stays off while running with hose disconnected, hook the hose back up and investigate the restriction in the hose, next most likely place to look is at the discharge opening at the exit of the building.

If the filter light is still on, you likely have a restriction or lint build up inside the unit, you have to unplug, open the unit and find the restriction.

mine is the same way, to solve this I elevated the bottum by 2 inches, then i kept it off, also i blow a fan on it while running.
also, you need to clean the filter (the gray "L" inside) black dust should come out.
lastly, mine actually broke because it overheated.

Stay and Go coffee maker just quit during cleaning

Hang on. Wait until it has cooled and dried. Mine did this. About a week later, I tried it... Display was incredibly faint. But after some use, it "came back." Same as new. Everything is working.

Just... don't give up on it yet.

Miele G 7856 Commercial Dishwasher

Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.
Any ideas?
