The symptoms sound quite similar to this problem. You could try out its solution?

Try cleaning the vent line. if you have a flex vent line make sure it isn't kinked in any spot. make sure the outlet outside does not have a birds nest or anything blocking it

Re: Dryer stops drying and lint error message...

Had the same very annoying problem. Cleaned the lint trap thoroughly and blew out all the debris way down the bottom with a compressor and piece of hose, all perfectly clean but still having the same problem. My solution was check the the exhaust outlet outside the house, there was a new birds nest in there blocking the flow. They will make a nest in there if they can, especially in the winter because its free heat. Evict them expeditiously. Problem solved finally.

Ultrasense dryer sending lint filter red light, E01 message and it is beeping after starting to dry.

Try unplugging for a _full_ 24 hours. If problem still exists, bad computer board.

(I feel like I should copy this answer to a notepad and paste it every time I see these questions. This is why I avoid computerized appliances like the plague. Owning such appliances is _truly_ worth having extended warranties).

Error code CL on Kenmore Dryer

The "Check lint screen" light is just a reminder to check the and clean the lint screen before or after each load. There is not a sensor that will detect if it's clean or dirty, it's just a reminder. The "Check lint screen" should turn off as soon as the dryer is started. If it never turns off then the control board would need to be replaced in order for the check lint screen reminder to turn off, however the check ling screen reminder light staying on will not effect the operation of the dryer.
Here is the control board to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return.

On my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series Electric Dryer keeps shutting off and gives the E-01 error we have check the exhaust air duct on back of the dryer and we have vacuumed the inside bearing shield what else...

Motor won't work
Lint screen hi-limit (thermal cutout) tripped.
Clean lint screen and clean lint and other debris from front shield, then replace hi-limit. Also check exhaust duct length & # of elbows.
Wire harness failed.
Run resistance or continuity checks to track down broken wire or connector. Replace failed wire harness.
Display shows "E:01" during drying.
Lint filter, air duct or air damper is blocked.
Air leaking past felt drum seal.
Air duct is too long, too small or has too many bends. Inadequate ventilation around dryer (i.e. in a closet).
Clean out filter, air duct and air damper.
Replace felt drum seal. If seal doesn't fit snugly onto drum, wet felt and dry it by running a timed dry cycle for 20 minutes (felt will shrink and fit drum snugly).
Shorten, enlarge, reroute and reduce # of bends in air duct. Move dryer to an area

Warning signal "linter filter" comes on and dryer

You don't have very much information here to give you a better diagnosis, like the model or the error code, but I'll take a shot at it. If you're thinking that the flashing list filter light is the error code you can relax. The lint filter light ALWAYS flashes at the end of a cycle or before you hit the start button to begin a cycle. This is just a reminder to check the filter.
If your dyer is displaying an E:01 code this indicates blockage in the venting system. Do the simple thing 1st. wash your lint filter with some dish soap and running water, lightly scrubbing it with your finger tips. After rinsing clean pat the filter dry and re install it in the dryer. While you have the filter out look down in the filter holder area and see if you have lint built up there. They make brushes for cleaning this area or you can use a vacuum cleaner attachment to reach in there and **** out the lint.
If you still have an E:01 error after doing all this you may need to have your house vent pipe cleaned. But before you do this check your vent hood where the dyer vent exhausts out of the house. If it's obstructed you found your problem

The error message E.01 appears and the dryer stops and beeps. What should I do?
ERROR E01 troubleshooting section mentioned to check the "Lint Filter", "Exhaust Hose", or check for correct "Ventilation" to the unit.
Check out above, it explains it all.

E 01 display and beeping

Check for the following if you get "E01" error message 1. Check for the vent hose whether it is clean which is less than two feet (to outside). 2. Check for the temperature sensor probes one in back at heating element and one in front by the lint filter for the temperatur rises resistance increases on both of them and visa versa. 3. Check whether the unit has been grounded. 4. Check for the element that turns off and on during drying process. 5. When first starting and dryer is cool it will dry one load of clothes, it also seems to work for at least the first part of the cycle, until clothes began to get dry then it over heats. display shows E01 and will not run until it has set for about an hour.
Thank you!

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.
