Re: front loading dryer

Wrong Richard-sorry- but had this issue. Check filter light would come on and I ignored it (after checking for built up lint) and now the dryer wont start. I pulled everything apart and it seems I had a duct loose inside letting all the lint inside the dryer. It was a warning I ignored.

Re: front loading dryer

The check filter light is just a reminder light and cannot be reset.  Nothing to worry about.  Just keep the filter clean before each use.

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

Lint filter light flashing...on off light flashing. Cleaned lint filter and checked vent. Vacumed and brushed out lint area. Will not turn on.

We had the same problem as many here have described. After cleaning out the vent system with compressed air and a vacuum cleaner, the appliance still failed to start. I unplugged the unit for a few minutes, turned it back on and it still failed to start. I turned the rotary dial to "SHORT" pressed start and it worked!!!! Not sure if thats the magic sequence or i just got lucky but Good luck.

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.

Ge DRYER dpgt750EC2PL back wall of drum gets very hot. Occassional smell as if something starting to burn. How do I open the top lid to get inside to find out problem

This may sound a bit over simplified but when a dryer starts to get hot inside it is a sign of an airflow problem.

Start with the outside vent flapper. Check to see if there is lint build up on the flapper / louvers.

Pull off the vent hose and check for lint build up. If the vent hose is a flexible plastic hose they have a tendancy to clog with lint in the sprials and then the lint contines to build up until airflow is restricted.

After checking external vents and ducts next remove the lint filter. If you use dryer sheets wash the filter with white vinegar to remove the build up. It may appear clean but the material from the dryer sheets clogs the filters.

In the area around the lint filter check the ducting / air passages for lint build up and clean it.

In the process of all the cleaning do NOT use anything sharp. A vacuum crevice tool and a Looped metal coat hanger do wonders for cleaning assistance.

Before you reconnect the dryer vent try running the dryer with a light load of anything wet to see if it drys properly with the vent disconnected. After that reconnect the vent and repeat the same drying test to see if the drying times are close to the same.

This should solve your hot dryer problem.. If it does not then respond here and we can talk about taking your dryer apart.

Thanks for using FixYa.


the air flow out of the dryer it should be a very high volume.

Lint filter not blocking lint

Make sure it isn't bent or has any holes in it and is sealing around the edges. If not, replace it .
