Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

When my 1996 Cavalier is sitting at a traffic light, or slowly idling in traffic, the engine dies and I have to restart the car. I'm not sure exactly what it is and it happens sporadically. Also I...


That left it wide open. Does the chk engine light come on? If it is coming on, even if it is on while driving then go's off? Then it could be a sensor. Since it just dies at stop lights, could be fuel filter? How long has it been since plugs was replaced? And air filter? All of them are fairly cheap compared to how much better it runs after it is done.
However I bet it is a vacuum leak somewhere. Probably the rubber boots conecting the plastic lines to the intake. They are right against the motor around all of the heat from it. And they dry out looking like very small cracks in it. Dry rot. It don't take much for them to run differently when the rpm's drop. Be careful when you check em. They are probably brittle and break easily. And definitly change the fuel filter.

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

Bosch Axxis Starts and stops


The lint light keeps coming on and shuts the dryer off so clothes are not dry. I checked the filter and it is clear. Now the bottom of filter is cracked (plastic part) so I need to replace. But why does the lint light come on now after 5 years of use? It never came on before even when the lint filter was full?

the warning does not strictly mean filter only
there is a lint blockage somewhere in the vent system and there is only a single response the dryer knows to make
fan
fan housing
duct
outside vent
could all be sufficiently blocked to set off the warning

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).

take the lint screen out and clean it with a toothbrush and warm soapy water. You may be using too much softner. If that doesnt work, the control board may be bad.
