Question about GE DSXH47EGWW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer displays the message to clean the lint filter. I did clean the filter but I can see tons of lint below the filter that I can't reach and can't clean. The message won't go away and the lint is obviously clogging up the dryer and causing longer dry times. What should I do?

There is lint down in the "basin" below the lint filters and I cannot reach it to vacuum it out. I empty the lint screens after each and every load but this has built up in the bottom in the stainles


unplug it,remove the bottom panel,pull out the lint filter,you'll see the metal duct that the lint filter slides into,remove the 1/4 inch screws that hold it in place and remove it and vac it out,if you have a shop vac you can blow the lint off of the motor and blow all the lint in the back of the cabinet forwards and then vac it up,this way you don't have to pull the dryer apart to clean it,you should do this once a year so you don't have any problems with the dryer and your clothes will dry on time,also you should clean out the vent line,pull out the dryer,remove the vent line,if it's a long run stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow all the lint in it outside,first make sure you don't have a cage or anything that will catch the lint,if you do remove it and don't put it back then go inside and blow out the line.this happens to every dryer even if you clean the lint filter every time.hope this helps and good luck with your dryer

Clean the Lint Filter or Condenser


check inside it may have a lot of lint build up in it, check the vent to outside and be sure there is no sharp bend in vent pipe to make it over heat. the straighter the better !

Clean filter light wont go out


Hello,

Your are getting the clean lint screen message because the computer on the control board is sensing poor airflow so it thinks the lint filter needs to be cleaned. What else you would need to check is for lint build up in the blower housing below the lint screen or the venting from the back of the dryer for blockage from the back of the dryer all the way to where it exits to the outdoors for a possible birds nest or some other thing restricting airflow.

Dryer "clean lint filter" message


Hello. Begin by unplugging the plug on the dryer. Then pull out the filter and thoroughly examine the space that the filter slides into looking for any lint. Remove any lint that you find. Put the filter back and lastly plug the dryer back in.

These steps should solve the problem. If not, then the lint sensor has gone bad and should be replaced. If you wish to do that yourself you can go to searspartsdirect.com. Enter the model number of the dryer and then you will see the parts diagrams allowing you to locate that lint sensor, and even order a new one. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Warning signal "linter filter" comes on and dryer


You don't have very much information here to give you a better diagnosis, like the model or the error code, but I'll take a shot at it. If you're thinking that the flashing list filter light is the error code you can relax. The lint filter light ALWAYS flashes at the end of a cycle or before you hit the start button to begin a cycle. This is just a reminder to check the filter.
If your dyer is displaying an E:01 code this indicates blockage in the venting system. Do the simple thing 1st. wash your lint filter with some dish soap and running water, lightly scrubbing it with your finger tips. After rinsing clean pat the filter dry and re install it in the dryer. While you have the filter out look down in the filter holder area and see if you have lint built up there. They make brushes for cleaning this area or you can use a vacuum cleaner attachment to reach in there and **** out the lint.
If you still have an E:01 error after doing all this you may need to have your house vent pipe cleaned. But before you do this check your vent hood where the dyer vent exhausts out of the house. If it's obstructed you found your problem

My dryer keeps saying Lint Filter Problems and cutting off however the lint filter is clean. Because of this issue I the dryer will not stay on long enough to actually dry the clothes. It continuously...


try two things. first, run it empty without the lint filter installed. if it gives you the same error message, install the filter, but disconnect the flexible duct connected to the back of the dryer. try it again. if it still wont work, you will have to get it serviced and cleaned out. if it works with the ducting removed from the back, your dryer duct is clogged up. check your yellow pages for dryer duct cleaning. The lint filter error message is just your machines way of saying it is not getting enough air flow. It can be caused by a clogged duct also.

My laundry room has tons and tons of lint in it. The dryer is emitting so much lint into the air. I clean out the trap in the front of the machine but there has got to be something I am missing.


Hi,
The hose is probably off of the dryer in the back....the lint should be exhausting outside and not into the room...they will always throw lint even with the lint filter in the dryer...
look for where the exhaust hose is unhooked at...

Bosch Nexxt 800 series dryer E01 error


My wife has a Bosch Premium dryer that had drying problems. The lint filter would get cleaned but the machine still did not operate correctly, as you explained above. Her machine was made in 2005 and the lint screen, the plastic slotted unit in front of the lint filter was the problem. It gets clogged up with hair/lint that never makes it to the filter. I tried a shop vac to vacuum it but the problem was still there. Get a pistol cleaning kit for a 22 cal gun. Pull the lint filter out & then take the pistol rod and insert it from the drum side into each slot and pull out the tons of lint. Pull the lint off the rod when done and take a flame to burn the rest off as the rod is a brass brush with small wires on it.
