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.

What does it mean when it tell you to clean filter and the filter is already clean


That clean filter symbol is just a reminder to clean the filter after every dryer load--I'm assuming this unit is a dryer, however it's listed under washing machines.

Dryer wont heat


Sounds like your heating element has went out. So you will either have to replace it $100 to $150 or purchase a new one

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 legacey washer is leaving lint on clothes


Of course you've probably already done this but if not, check the filter and clean it. Additionally, you might need to wash it to remove residue from dryer sheets and BE SURE TO DRY IT BEFORE PUTTING IT BACK IN THE DRYER. If the filter is clean and washed and you're still having lint, get a dryer brush and clean down in the area where the filter goes. Also go to the vent area outdoors and clean that with the dryer brush. That area can become clogged over time and prevent the dryer from effectively removing the lint. Furthermore, check the exhaust piping. If it is bent, gently move it a little to dislodge any lint that might have gotten stuck there over the years.

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.

Hotpoint ultima washer dryer


ok lay the machine on its side the side with the soap draw under you will find the outlet pipe runing to the pump then another hose going from the pump to the bottom of the drum. if you disconnect the hose from the bottom of the drum you will find the filter remove this hose from the other end and clean the filter and hose with hot water once replaced check the hose in tight it may be tricky to replace stand up the machine and test using water only and an empty drum.

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.
