The lights come on and we get a check lint screen warning. Have cleaned the screen and tubing all the way to the external vent. Doesn't help. Same warning and no response from the start button. Do you have any advice on this?

I don't have a specific answer for you, but I'm heading a lot of reports about the new electronic washers and dryers. It seems they are very touchy. If I had one, I would be sure to use a surge protector to protect the circuit board.
I am not familiar with your dryer, but it sounds like a safety mechanism where if your lint screen is not cleaned the dryer will not turn on. That "Check Lint Screen" light for your dryer may be connected to a sensor near the lint screen area. Check that out and see if that is the problem. If there is a sensor it could be faulty,
Remove lint screen. Remove bottom front kick panel (usually three to four screws on very bottom front), There is a metal lint filter air duct assembly that has three to four screws holding it on. Usually one on each upper side of the duct, and one that has a bent metal bracket holding the bottom to the blower housing. This metal duct is dead center in the dryer under the door and ducts over to the bottom left. Remove the screws and pull the duct down and out. You can now clean this assembly. Needless to say, always unglug the dryer or turn it off at the circuit breaker before doing this job. I recommend that you do this at least once a year on the dryer, and clean out the washer lint and coin catcher at least once a year. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.
Depending on how old this is or how much it is used depends how much lint has built up inside the air flow tube. I have seen where you look inside where the lint screen is and beneath it with screen removed there is nothing but lint, in which case the dryer thinks the screen is clogged. You might have two screws on the inside of the drum that hold the screen holder in place. First remove the lint screen and hold the little door that closes when you remove the screen, open the little door and look down inside it with a flash light, if you see a lot of lint, like I said you might be able to remove the holder and clean this area out, also take a coat hanger and bend a little piece at the end and use this to get most of the lint out of this area and the tube that Leeds down from this area. If this can be done and you get this area clean and it still happens, you might have to clean the entire area the tube and the back tube,the tube leeding to the outside of the house and vent. Any questions please post back.
