You should get one of of those long handled dryer vent brushes from Home Depot or Lowes and clean the vent pipe also. Not enough air is moving over the vent sensor.

The dryer flashes the minutes and then cL and it says to clean the filter. It is clean but it wont turn on


It say to clean filter because it senses poor air flow so if filter clean the air flow is restricted,that could be caused by a restricted vent or espically in ge dryers the filter/blower housing is built up with lint and needs to be taken apart and cleaned

Cant get the clean filter lights to stop flashing

Think of this as a "low airflow" indicator. I know it says clean filter, but this error code is triggered when the temperature gets too high in the air duct sensor at the front of the machine as compared to the sensor at the rear of the machine. the most likely cause is a dirty filter. if you use dryer sheets, the fine mesh can get clogged with paraffin wax. if you hold your filter up to the light, and it looks cloudy and clogged, clean it in hot water to dissolve the paraffin.
if the light still comes on, check to make sure your ducting is not clogged and that the flapper door on the outside of your house where the duct exits is clear and that it opens when the dryer is running. you may need to unplug the dryer if the clean filter light is on and wont go off. plug it back in and try to run it.

After one load, dryer stopped working. lint

With the exhaust clear, you need to be sure that air is actually moving. It could be a bound or bad exhaust blower.

My dryer is making a beeping noise while running. I stop it to check filter like it says and the filter is clean, then the dryer will not start and I have to turn it completely off to start it again

This happens on these if there is enough lent in the vent line as well. The excess buildup of the lint will decrease the airflow and cause the sensor to trip a trouble code. Try cleaning out your line and see if that doesn't help. Good luck.

Dryer runs for about 3 min. then shuts off. Its not the reset. Let it sit for a few min. and the power comes back. Stop is flashing on panel.

have you cleaned the filter, so dryers stop if the dryer filter needs to be cleaned, also when you pull it out, clean underneath the filter, down in the dryer, lint gets down in there after a may help.....good luck.....

Dryer keeps stopping - check filter light on

For Sgt 48 - You are not reading the original message very well - The original help question didn't say they saw check filter at the beginning or end of a dry cycle they indicated that the dryer STOPS MID DRY and says check filter - this is not a friendly reminder, it is indicating something is wrong and the filter needs to be completely cleaned out (and past the filter down in the interior of the dryer) and if that does not work then you need to also check the dryer hose for kinks, lint build up, etc. Lastly, reset the dryer by unplugging it (or flipping the breaker) for a minute or so and hold down on the start/pause button for 8 seconds while it is unplugged (this will reset the error code for check filter, among other things).
