The CHECK FILTER light will appear between every cycle, simply as a reminder to clear the lint filter before starting a new load. If the unit runs properly, then this is no cause for concern. If it will not start, then the unit may require service.

Filter light keeps coming on but filter in end of door frame clean

Do you use dryer sheets? If you do, they leave a residue on the filter screen that will block air flow.

To check if that is the problem - Take the filter screen to a sink and run water over it. If the water runs through like it isn't even there then that is NOT the problem! But if pools even a little take a soft bristled brush and clean it until water passes through freely.

Keeps saying filters blocked

hi street. remove the filter and then pull the dryer out from the wall and remove the vent pipe leading out doors. check the entire path clear to out doors removing any lint or other obstructions you come across. use a flash light to see to the parts that are dark. joe

Filter light is on. I pull filter - its clean. I put filter back in - filter light goes out. I start dryer. It runs for about 5 seconds and stops

Did anyone come up with a solution to the problem, we are having the same problem, except our dryer keeps running, the filter light goes out, and when the dryer is turn back on the filter light is back on, the filter is clean.

The red light keeps comming on for the check filter even though i have cleaned it regularly since i boght the machine

Check the dryers exhaust ductwork. If it is obstructed, the light will come on. The light is a warning that air is being restricted on exhaust.

Bosch Axxis Starts and stops

The lint light keeps coming on and shuts the dryer off so clothes are not dry. I checked the filter and it is clear. Now the bottom of filter is cracked (plastic part) so I need to replace. But why does the lint light come on now after 5 years of use? It never came on before even when the lint filter was full?

The check filter light is just a reminder light and cannot be reset.  Nothing to worry about.  Just keep the filter clean before each use.
