The sensor in the filter "PATH" is actually located past the screen. It measures the amount of air flow passing through the exhaust cavity going outside. My suggestion is to clean the airflow duct from right past the lint filter all the way out side. It is recommended that this be done once a year for optimal performance. If this doesn't work, let me know.

I have an electric dryer, Model 110-69822801. We clean the filter after each use, but I notice that there is lots of lint accumlated in the space below the filter. How can I clean it out?


The best and least messy way is to take it apart but you can get a lot of the lint by getting a long narrow condenser coil brush (Used to clean under your refrigerator and sold at any hardware store. I used this trick on mine but I had to go in from the filter side and from the outlet on the back to get most of it but then I pulled the dryer apart to get it totally cleaned. If you have the means and don't mind a mess you can blow it out with compressed air from an air compressor. I would also recommend getting a new filter, sounds like your old one is not stopping all the lint.

Dryer check filter light keeps blinking and dryer will not start cleaned lint filter and nothing happened display on control board blinks when dryer is turned on and that's about it can you assist dyer...


There is a reminder light to "Check Lint Filter" near the lower right of the cycle knob. It will come on every time the power button is pushed. After cleaning the lint filter, if the "check lint screen" light does not go off, it is likely that the touch pad control will need replacement.

Lg dle3777w dryer filter light remains on and dryer is not working even after cleaning the filter.


I'm sure you solved the problem but as i had the same problem on my electric LG front loader and saw no response i figured I would leave one for anybody else in the future. My girlfriend told me the dryer would not start and as i looke i saw the panel would not power up, I unplugged the power cord for 5 minutes and the LG reset and the panel was on and reading clean filter after checking the filter which appeared clean I tried to restart the dryer at which time it powered off. I again unplugged the dryer and replugged it and again the display read clean filter. I then gtabbed a phillips #2 and unscrewed the filter lint sceen which had a total of 4 scews in the interior of the dryer holding the filter housing unit. Youll see a piece of the housing unit remains screwed into the washer hooked up to two electrical plugs. Seperate both plugs from the unit and unscrew it and remove the unit youll notice two silver strips on the unit and I'm guessing will be covered with a small amount of lint. Clean the unit with a brush and damp cloth inside and out reattach the unit screw first and housing unit and turn on. If the dryer again turns off unplug and youll see the clean filter light. Simply push the custom program light or anything similar and the panel should start working again. I hope this helps someone.

I can't totally clean the lint trap on my PYE2300AYW Maytag dryer. How can I completely remove the lint trap to clean it?


If lint has gotten past the lint trap, you can attempt to use a brush just like the previous poster suggested. If that doesn't work you'll have to disassemble the unit. You only need to lift the top up and remove two screws on each side that connects the front to the side panels. The front should then swivel outward. Be sure to detach the door switch and wire guide from the front panel before completely removing it. You can then lift the front panel up and away. You'll need to clean the opening in the bottom of the front panel and also the entrance to the blower.

Our Performa Washer sometimes gets totally gunked up with black stuff- is there a lint filter anywhere I'm not clearing?


no lint filter on a performa washer, stay with the same detergent brand and if used same fabric softner mixing different brands will cause a gunkey compound that can get onto your clothes
