Filter lamp flashing

Hi. When I run my 7-year old 5410 dryer, everything starts normal but after about 3-5 minutes the filter lamp is flashing and heat and motor stops. The same if I run in timer mode: If I set it for 40 minutes it changes after a while to 8 minutes and heat is turned off. I have off course cleaned the filter and condenser so I can eat food on them. I have also checked the NTC temp-sensors (in front and at the heater); both seemes ok. Dismantled the heater, no blocking there. Fans in front and rear are clean. Why is the LED still flashing!!! Any clue?

Re: Filter lamp flashing

The condenser has two "channels" one for the moist hot air that are easy to clean and inspect. The other flow is perpendicular where cool air drawn from outside and passes through. These channels, viewed from the side can get blocked over time with dust/fluff. I blasted mine with a pressure washer and it was obvious from the change in light when looking through it that it was clogged before I blasted it.

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

Electrolux EDC77550 drum dryer starts normally but stop after running couple of minutes.

If motor runs continuously with power applied, check for short circuit across motor relay (RL2), or L1 applied to motor relay output (J3-1) with cycle stopped. If motor does not start when Start key is pressed, check for open circuit between L1 and motor relay connection (J3-2). If no wiring problems found, replace Main Control Board.

I have a 5 year old LG front loading dryer, model # DJG2524W. When I went to start to dry a load, the dryer started, and then stopped after only a second or two. The check filter light was flashing. We...


I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermal fuse that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if it is bad then it should be replaced, as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then it can be due to the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Gas lights up for about 5 minutes and then burns out. Try to turn on dryer again, but flame won't light. I let dryer sit for aout 30 minutes and turn on again - flame starts up, but will only last...

If the flame is shutting of before it reaches the operating temperatures the likely failure is a restricted venting system. There is a high limit thermostat that will cause the flame to shut off if there is a lack of airflow due to a restriction in the vent system. Remove the lint filter screen and clean in with soap and water. The filter may appear clean but it could have a clear film of fabric softener residue covering it causing a restriction in the air flow too. After cleaning the filter reinstall it before running the next test.

For testing purposes only, disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and put a normal load of clothes in the dryer and start the dryer. If the clothes dry in the normal amount of time that would confirm a restriction in the vent hose or the venting system. NOTE: Do not leave the vent hose disconnected after running the test. Reconnect the vent hose.

You will likely find the clothes drying in the normal amount of time indicating a restriction in the venting.

Dryer runs for a few minutes then shuts off when u restart pushing in knob it will hum for a second then start and turn off again in a few minutes

the humming you hear is coming from the motor,unfortunitely the motor needs to be replaced,when the motor heats up it shuts down from running hotter than normal,could be from not cleaning out the dryer every one to two years,the lint covers the motor like a blanket making it run hot,the vent line cloggs up and the duct that the lint filter slides into needs to be cleaned out,also it could be from to large a load put into the machine but whatever the cause you need to replace the motor or replace the dryer depending on how old it is and what shape it's time send the model number,i can look up your part and tell you how to change out the motor

This machine is worth replacing the motor and really a breeze to repair. Nothing has worked better for over 50 years. Go for it.

LG DLE2512W dryer approx 3 years old error message to "check filter". Dryer has stopped working. What is the problem? Do you have a schematic of the dryer I can download?

I just had this problem with my 5 year old today. I unplugged it (after checking the line and the regular filter to make sure that they were clear). since there didn't appear to be a real problem. It works fine now. It wasn't having any problems before the light started flashing and it doesn't appear to be having any now. Hope this helps

Dryer not starting

Check your lint filter first, and then try to restart it. Also, make sure the door is completely shut. If this doesn't do it, check your condensation hose for blockage. These dryers are very sensitive to lint build up, so make sure to change your lint trap after each load. It's not only a good practice, but it's necessary with this machine
