During the drying cycle the dryer stops with the filter light on. This happens when the filter is clean. Any advice appreciated.

    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.

Tip

Dryer Dry Time Appears to Jump or Stall During Auto Dry Cycles


The operation of dryers during the Auto Dry Cycles is based on the moisture content of the clothes as they cycle over the moisture sensor. At the start of the cycle, the default estimated time is displayed depending on the cycle selected. The moisture sensor feeds information to the control based on the "wetness' of the clothes during the first 5 minutes of the cycle. The control then calculates and display a new estimated time making the time appear to "jump".

Recalculation happens again based on the reduction in the "wetness" of the clothes when the Estimated Time Remaining is between 15 to 5 minutes. The control will extend the cycle and display the Estimated Time Remaining unchanged if it "sees" no significant reduction in the wetness level of the clothes. The dryer will run longer than initially projected and give the appearance that the displayed time has "stalled".

Clean the sensor bars for any films or dirt build up to make sure it sends accurate information to the control. Level the dryer front to back and side to side to ensure the clothing will tumble properly and making good and proper contact with the moisture sensor bars. Check the dryer vent duct for any restriction to ensure a good air flow as the operation of the Auto Dry Cycles is based primarily on the air flow condition.

It is highly recommended to clean the lint filter before every load and make sure the dryer is grounded at the wall plug.

My AEG T37400 lavatherm standanlone tumble dryer works for a turns of the drum then stops.


Alarm conditions during operation of the dryer

The LEDs begin to flash if one of the following malfunctions occurs:
  • NTC open (the LEDs flash in sequence from right to left)
  • NTC short-circuited (the LEDs flash in sequence from right to left)
  • If the START button is pressed for more than 20 seconds while a cycle is in operation all the LEDs flash.
25679338-hf2jxxovvq5cn05mugly0fcq-5-5.jpg If the microprocessor identifies one of the conditions listed above, operation of the dryer is interrupted; the LEDs continue to flash in order to warn the user of the malfunction.
If the error is eliminated, the dryer returns to normal operation when the programme selector knob is turned to RESET and the drying cycle is re-selected.

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

Cooling light stays on during dry cycle. no heat is to dry clothes. I've switched the circut breaker numerous times and unplugged the unit many times also to "reset" . What's next..


Try a timed dry cycle instead of an automatic cycle. If that works, then you will need to clean off the moisture detection bars inside the dryer to get the auto cycle to work again. Look for two curved metal bars, about 3/16 inch wide and 4 inches long, about an inch apart, located just inside the front of the dryer, near the right side of the lint filter. (you'll have to stick your head in the dryer drum to see them) Often times, use of dryer sheets will result in a waxy coating forming on these bars, preventing the dryer from detecting the moisture in the clothes. The dryer sees no moisture, it goes into the cool down mode and then stops. Clean the bars off, and you should be back in the laundry business.
