Re: check filter light has come on and dryer has stopped...

Look inside where the door closes to on the front face of the unit you should see the filter screen there this should be cleaned after every load

Why my dryer starts normal runs then stops the check filter light on

The Check Filter light comes on when the dryer's sensors suspect that the filter is overly full of lint. This is sensed by temperature and moisture in the drum. If the filter is not full , check to be sure that the vent ducting is not clogged or blocked.

take out and make sure you have puched it as far as it will go by takeing it out and putting it back should **** the sencer switch with is at the back of the filter not on the filter its self its in the dryer at the back where the filter puchs at it keep takeing it in and out ok if that dont work try cleaning at the back of the filter in the dryer where the filter go's ok should do it it only takes a little bit of fluff to stop it from working ok

LG DLE2512W dryer approx 3 years old error message to "check filter". Dryer has stopped working. What is the problem? Do you have a schematic of the dryer I can download?

I just had this problem with my 5 year old today. I unplugged it (after checking the line and the regular filter to make sure that they were clear). since there didn't appear to be a real problem. It works fine now. It wasn't having any problems before the light started flashing and it doesn't appear to be having any now. Hope this helps

Dryer powers up but stops within 4 seconds. Is louder than normal. When I press the power button, the check lint filter message lights.

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).

Water full indicator light

on most condensor dryers they also have a filter water bottle and also a radiator have u checked this becomes sometimes they get clogged up with lint this then doesnt let water go through as easy and it can put your water light on

Dryer won't work, Check Filter light is on

I had exactly the same problem with my newish LG dryer. I deduced that the dryer's computer essentially needed to be rebooted. I pulled the plug for a minute or so, then plugged it back in. It works perfectly now.
