My lg 2240 clean filter light blinks even though the filter is clean. when started it runs for 3 to 4 seconds then shuts off. if you wait for about a minute it will start again then shut off after 3 to 4...

This problem usually is caused by a restricted or blocked vent. The filter itself can be clean, but the duct work in the dryer after the filter, or the vent hose attached to the dryer, or the exhaust door attached to that hose is either restricted, plugged or blocked. Lint likes to build up in all areas the exhaust air goes, so check them all. The dryer has a sensor that will shut the dryer off if there is a restriction. Cleaning all of the duct work, from the filter all the way to where it exhausts outside, will usually solve this problem. An easy way to check is to unhook the exhaust hose from the dryer and run it. Does it keep running now? It is possible the sensor in the dryer has gone bad, but that is rare. 99% of the time it is lint build up in the venting.

When door is open its hot inside but clothes are still wet

sounds as if your exhaust/air exit/lint thorough fare may be plugged-blocked or building up thus holding moisture in unit, You may wish to use a shop vac hose hooked to exhaust side of vacumn to force air thru lint clean out after removing lint screen and/or also make sure dryer has not been forced back into the wall thus crimping exhaust chute and perhaps check outside to see if exhaust vent flapper chute is clear of obstruction and also opening as dryer runs, Good Luck and keep an eye out-fire hazard if dryer overheats and is actually a blocked exhaust, take care.

What's your problem? Check filter light keeps flashing


I have several manuals on hand and they all read the same

That could be the lint has a partial blockage in the outside vent and the vent thermal limit is tripped.

LG Tromm DLE8377NM check filter but filter is clean

You say lint hose is disconnected. Are you referring to the exhaust vent to the outside? I would suspect this vent is clogged or a vent flapper outside may be stuck shut.

Dryer keeps saying check filter - lint screen is clean-dryer won't run

Had the same problem. Filter was clean. Vacuumed out the area under the filter. Still had problem. Unplugged the dryer. Removed the hose vent (back of dryer) and checked the exhaust -- all clean. Plugged the dryer back in and was fine. Still going to check the vent to the outside for lint buildup.

LG DL2610 model does not dry, it turns on properly

Check your vent. Make sure there is a strong flow of air out the outside vent cap. If not, your dryer is not able to get rid of the moisture. Check for lint build up inside vent piping and for crushed flex vent pipe behind dryer which would obstruct air flow.

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
