    I have an electric Frigidaire dryer and my dryer stops and the clean lint filter light comes on. Is there a clog somewhere? My filter is clean.

Helenhjb, there is a couple of things I can think of that can cause this. The filter is one. The mesh on the filter is extremely fine, so get a steady stream of water running, then put the filter under the water. If the water doesn't run straight thru, then wash the filter with detergent until the water does run straight thru. If this works fine, then your issue may be that the door switch is set too far back and when you do heavy loads, the laundry pushes on the door and shuts down the dryer. On the Bosch, any time you open the door during the cycle, it will flash the lint filter lamp. The only other thing I know of usually has an E:01 flashing on the display is restricted vent. Hope this helps.

Model: LG Steam Dryers DLEX2501R Problem: Shows "Check Filter", while dryer still does the job


do you mean a condenser dryer?, as steam is water doesn't dry anything to well, if it is a condenser dryer the check filter or clean filter light should always come on towards the end of the cycle (varies between models some have both clean filter and empty tank lights on at end of cycle just as a reminder to do so and some don't have any lights), it is simply a reminder for you to clean the filter after each use unless this is something that has only just recently happened

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 Dryer lint filer warning


The Bosch Dryer has a temperature probe in the heater exit and in the exhaust area visible when you open the door. If the temperature difference between the two gets to high, the lint filter is assumed to be plugged and the alarm goes off.

It seems that the temperature probe at the heater, can end up with a faulty connection to the control panel over time due to corroded contacts or lint build up. When this happens the control panel thinks the filter is clogged and it may also not turn on the heating elements properly. Remove the back cover over the heating element (12 screws) and then remove the one screw holding the red wiring connection to the dryer body. You can then wiggle out the wiring connection and clean / unplug and replug in the connector for the sensor. (plug with two small wires only). A little hard feeding the connector back through the hole so take your time and don't damage the wires). Should all work again. May want to inspect inside the heater at same time and make sure the overheating switch is not tripped. ( press in the red button).
