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.

    I opened the back of the dryer and looked inside. There was a hose that goes from where you check the lint trap and runs along to the outer area of the dryer-then you send it out your wall. The hose from the lint trap came loose and it was just blowing all the moisture and dust inside my dryer. I cleaned it all out. Reattached the hose. And let everything dry out for a day or so. It has worked perfectly since then and that was over 6 months ago.

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.

Flashing container light. what is this? Dryer

Try taking out the lint screen and scrubbing it well in the sink with hot water and a brush. If you havent cleaned out below the lint screen, get a vacuum and a crevice tool and remove any standing lint as well as cleaning the vent. Bosch lint screens clog easily especially if you are a big fabric softener user.

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.

With the exhaust clear, you need to be sure that air is actually moving. It could be a bound or bad exhaust blower.

Lg dlg2522w check filter flashing, motor spins,no

Did you put a load of wet clothes in the dryer and run it?
You can't change the setting while it's running.
The sensors won't let it heat up if there is nothing in the dryer.
This is not your grandmas dryer, this is a high tech machine.
There is probably nothing wrong with it.
Oh and the filter light flashes like that, it is supposed to, it is telling you to check the filter for lint.

Remove lint holder on ge front loader dryer

I have the exact same problem. I am amazed at had been the engineering is for such a simple process. The user guide just says to clean the lint filter. Even when doing so, there is still an excessive build up of lint beyond reach. There are no instructions that mention how to clean this part. It is obvious that GE did not test this part of the machine.
