I have a stacking LG gas dryer, and when I turn it on, the "check filter" button on the top right blinks. When I start the dryer, the dryer is in cool down mode causing it to dry longer than normal. I have cleaned the lint pan, but cannot figure out what is continuing to go wrong. Any suggestions on what is the problem and how to reset the dryer so that it heats at full power?
Dryer is plugged in..all breakers are ok...will not turn on.
The check filter light comes on every load to remind you to clean the lint filter. Cooling only happens when that light is flashing not when it's on solid. If this is a gas dryer check the exhaust hose and vent on the outside of the house. If it is blocked it will not let the unit get to the correct temp due to cycling.

You do not state the type of stacking kit installed on your Bosch washer. The installation instructions of one of the stacking kits is found at the site Assemby Instructions Bosch Axxis Stacking Kit /WTZ11310.pdf . First remove the front concealment strip to expose the front of the mounting kit. Gently pry with a wooden tool to prevent damage. Once the it is exposed, there are two clip inserts in front of the dryer feet that must be removed. Once these are removed, you pull or slide the dryer forward to release them from the stacking kit and simply lift the dryer off of the stacking kit and the washer. The stacking kit itself is attached to the washing machine with four screws that must be removed to separate the kit from the washer top. And with that, your dryer and washer are separated!
But after separation there are two additional problems that may be bothersome to you. The first is that you now have mounting holes in the top of the washer that are exposed and the second is that the feet on your dryer may need to be replaced as parts of the feet may have been tossed during installation of the stacking kit and may need to be replaced.
The assembly instructions above show only the basic stacking kit. Some kits included a slide that pulls out to allow for a handy tray but the installation or disassembly is nearly the same.
The appliances were not designed to be stacked so I would not attempt it if anything I would build a shelf (ledge) to put the dryer on, then bracket it to the wall but be careful of the height especially with a gas dryer and be sure to have plenty of space for airflow. Good luck
Been a while since I did one, but as I recall: Two side pieces secure to top of washer with peel off tape and a screw into the top at the very back of the washer's top. Dryer sets on top of washer with back legs sliding into the stack kit side parts. Front rail holds front dryer legs, secured by one screw on each side into stack kit side pieces after dryer is set on top of washer.
You said, You have a gas stacked frigidaire dryer and washer. I assume the motor
has gone because one you push the start button the drum does not turn.
How do you get to the motor to replace. Does the top and back come off
and how do you do it. alan
Below I will paste the site that will have the repair diagrams needed for you to see how to replace the motor if you choose to!
Find the diagram "#5 Dry MTR ,BELT" When you click the page and it opens inthe upper right corner it will say,Open This Diagram in a New Window.The motor is #28 in the Diagram.

Let me know how it goes for you! Huuum, Please remember to leave a rating. I believe I solved your request!
You have to take the top off the washer a put it aside. You no longer need the top. Then you put the two angle brackets on the front top of the washer. this is where the front of the dryer will attach. The back of the washer either has or needs the brackets put on the top (been a long time since I did this). Remove the leveling legs from the dryer. Then lift the dryer and slide it on top of the washer with the back touching the top of the washer and the front about 2 inches higher than the washer top. The back of the dryer slides into the back brackets which are on the top back of the washer. Then lower the front of the dryer and the two "L" brackets on the front top of the washer slide through cracks into the dryer. Pop off the two plastic plugs on the dryer bottom front and place a screw in each one to hold the unit in place. Replace the plastic caps and you are done.
