LG dlg5988W Gas Dryer - flashing "clean filter" light

I have the same problem. The dryer was working fine. Now, when I start the dryer it flashes "clean filter" . I'vecleaned out the lint screen, washed it and even vacuumed inside the lint area, wiped down the door and I even checked the vent on the back and outside. Still nothing. Help!

    Power comes on, but "check filter" light keeps it from running.  When trying to push the "play" button to get the dryer running, it just hums loudly until I shut off the power or "pause" it.

    I have the same issue with my LG gas dryer. When powering the clean lint flashes. I'd clean the filter and ducts. And it still flashes. Does any one know how to reset this? My dryer too tumbles but no heat. The cooling light stays lit. This might be half my problem.

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 .

It is not nessary to tare the dryer apart simply open the dryer door and remove the two screws holding the lint screen holder on. Remove the screen holder and on the right hand side there are two prongs. just clead them and your good to go.

    These "prongs" are the leads for the moisture detector. This didn't work for me, but I could see how it would be a problem if lint shorted these two leads. 5 minutes to clean and check.

Does my lg tromm dlg5988w gas dryer have a pilot light that stay on all the time or only when u start it


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

My LG dryer DLG2526W flaskes the CK FILTER light, but will not start. The filter is clean. Whats up?


The check filter light will always flash whenever you turn it on. It's just a reminder feature. Starting problem can be many things. Possible broken belt, door not closed properly or control board issue. You will require a professional LG technician to diagnose the problem.
Good luck

Check your filter, your vent and clean them well. Shut down the power and let it reset itself.

My LG dryer will not power up


You may have a broken door switch.  That would be the most likely source of your problem since the machine will not work if the computer senses that the door isn't closed.
