Hmmm..no lint screen means that you have lint buildups inside the machine...check the air lines, and in and out for the vents..first.

Ctd80 hotpoint dryer panel flashing dryer not working


Filter at bottom of machine needs pulling out and cleaned on a regular basis. This is a common fault and the lights is telling you to clean the filter. It is a large filter that unclips at the bottom front of machine. Remove two small screws from the front of the filter located left and right and gently remove the front plate. Once removed you will see a metal filter clogged with clothing debris. Clean with cotton buds and a damp cloth till clean. replace all parts and you should have it working once again with a good heat source as well. Every 2-3 months is sufficient to keep it cleaned. Hope this helps.

Cleaning Inglis washing machine IP41003.


Wonderful product on the market called "Affresh" comes in a tablet form. Place one tablet in the basket, and start the "hottest" and "longest" cycle and let it run. Be sure to leave the lid open or up when not in use, and be sure to keep that boot clean. The filter should be removed and cleaned "they say" every 3-5 months, but I tell my customers it depends on how you use and take care of the machine. If you forget to clean your pockets, get coins or pens, or use "smaller" items of clothes without a garment bag, then check more often. Also if you have small or very young children, check more often. Easy way to tell, pull out filter (watch for the water), and see whats in it. If it has a bunch of stuff, check it more often, nothing in it, maybe once a year.

My Profile Harmony dryer is not pushing the air through the dryer. It will heat, tumble, and the screen is working fine. We just don't have air flow through to the vent outtake.


you venting either inthe dryer or through the house is pluged check and clean external venting first and then try it. then if still acting up check the internal venting. usuall u can take off the back or bottom panel of the dryer. it is not very difficult to do but none the less becarefull and unplug the machine. and check your lint filer withevery use and make sure it fits properly. and venting is as free flowing as possible.

I have a large capacity front load LG electric dryer. I keep getting the "check filter" message & the filters are clean. The dryer will not stay on. HELP!


The message does not only refer to filters, badly written.
There is an air flow restriction that the machine senses and is warning about.
check the fan and fan housing for lint that has got past the screens, then pull the dryer away from the wall and check the exhaust duct for lint, all the way to the wall
then check the outside wall vent for lint build up in the rodent screen

Check Filer


the clean filter light is just a reminder light.  There is no reset button.  It will always come on when you turn on the unit.
