SOURCE: Clean filter light stays on LG TD-C70045E Dryer

I had the same problem. It actually has nothing to do with the filters. If your dryer sounds like it wants to start the capacitor is blown.

SOURCE: LG dlg5988W Gas Dryer - flashing "clean filter" light

i got the same problem and no repair man could help . i think i just got mine fixed 6-15-09 .what you do is go behind the dryer , remove the air duct and then remove the pipe that is inside the machine by removing one screw . this will give you access inside the machine .first clean as much as you can of the lint inside by vacuuming it . if you look to the left you will see 2 wires with a black button in the middle this is the ignitor ,clean it good because i think the dirt is not allowing it to light up . i did that and mine is working but the cooling light is still on .

SOURCE: the check filter light keeps coming ob to my lg

Clean the vent all the way to the outside.
The dryer will take 4-5 loads to reset the filter sensor.

Mahe sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.

SOURCE: lg dle3777w dryer filter light remains on and

I'm sure you solved the problem but as i had the same problem on my electric LG front loader and saw no response i figured I would leave one for anybody else in the future. My girlfriend told me the dryer would not start and as i looke i saw the panel would not power up, I unplugged the power cord for 5 minutes and the LG reset and the panel was on and reading clean filter after checking the filter which appeared clean I tried to restart the dryer at which time it powered off. I again unplugged the dryer and replugged it and again the display read clean filter. I then gtabbed a phillips #2 and unscrewed the filter lint sceen which had a total of 4 scews in the interior of the dryer holding the filter housing unit. Youll see a piece of the housing unit remains screwed into the washer hooked up to two electrical plugs. Seperate both plugs from the unit and unscrew it and remove the unit youll notice two silver strips on the unit and I'm guessing will be covered with a small amount of lint. Clean the unit with a brush and damp cloth inside and out reattach the unit screw first and housing unit and turn on. If the dryer again turns off unplug and youll see the clean filter light. Simply push the custom program light or anything similar and the panel should start working again. I hope this helps someone.

Dryer wont heat


Sounds like your heating element has went out. So you will either have to replace it $100 to $150 or purchase a new one

Lint filter on LG DLEX2901V sticks up in the corner and catches clothes


Look familiar? LG dryer model DLEX3250W. Lint frame does not fit the slot anymore. NOT BECAUSE OF EXTRA LINT it's because the frame is warping.

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

LG Dryer Problem DLE6977S doesn't heat/dry clothes. The check filter is flashing but the filter has been washed. What else can I try? Cooling light is on as well, but not flashing.


there is a sensor located underneath the lint trap, gently clean it off, you may want to disconnect the vent tube and run the dryer as the vent may be restricted. 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

Lg dlg2522w check filter flashing, motor spins,no


Did you put a load of wet clothes in the dryer and run it?
You can't change the setting while it's running.
The sensors won't let it heat up if there is nothing in the dryer.
This is not your grandmas dryer, this is a high tech machine.
There is probably nothing wrong with it.
Oh and the filter light flashes like that, it is supposed to, it is telling you to check the filter for lint.
