Take another look at the owners manual. The check filter light comes on as soon as you turn on the unit. It also comes on at the end of the cycle. It is just a reminder. The other tip about the dryer sheets is correct, to check it place the filter under the tap, if the water pools that means it is clogged. Wash the filter, dry and replace. Note the sensor bars can also get coated after a while, use a scotch pad (nylon) to wipe them once in a while.

Try removing the lint filter from the dryer and with no clothes, start the the dryer, and if it works then replace your lint filter.
Tip: Fabric softener sheets in the dryer can deposit an invisible coating on the screen of the filter and reduce air flow.

Did you try to remove the back cover after unplugiging your dryer ,to find a lot of lint in the back of the dryer? Some times you may have to clean in this area for fire safety. Maybe this would sold your problem.

Dryer does not heat


Whenever I see this problem I look for reasons why the dryer stopped heating. You might think the heating element is the priority thing to check and you would be right. But their are other things to look for besides the element. I inspect the dryer inside and out for signs of lint buildup and vent blockage. If I see a lot of lint I know it might very well be a safety limit has popped. Most dryers have 2 limits mounted next to the heater element on the heater housing.A lager one is rated @250f and a smaller one is rated @300f. If that smaller limit is tripped then you will have no heat,however, the dryer will still run. If the filter housing and blower area really get a lint buildup then a melting fuse rated @350f will kill the dryer so that the thing won't catch fire. I have manuals and repair photos for most American models HERE

I have a whirlpool lgr5634a gas dryer, it heats up but does not seem to heat as high as it should.


possible of lint build up in the discharge vent vaccum/clean out first. next ensure the filter trap is clean and the below area is in the discharge area is cleaned out. also the sensor on the inside of the drum could be coated with sooftner causing the sensor that automaticly tells the dryer when top stop/ amount of heat to produce could be coated use isopropel alchol to clean and check after 10 minutes if the dyer is functioning properly at this time.

Lint filter light flashing...on off light flashing. Cleaned lint filter and checked vent. Vacumed and brushed out lint area. Will not turn on.


Had the same problem. I clean it the way you mention with the addtion of blowing compressed air through the vent pipe and it still failed to work. I unplugged the power for a couple of mintues, still did not work. I rotated the dial and pressed start at each position. In the "SHORT" position, it worked and subsequently worked in all positions there after.

Replaced thermal fuse ,ran cycle all the way than died again.Have had to replace fuse in past would usually get 9 months out of it .Replaced it dryer ran fine but after cycle completed dryer was dead...


Have you cleaned the lint out of the airways and the heat exchanger area? The lint filter traps most of the lint but not all, the airways and especially the area where the heating element is still fills up with lint. To get it out, you'll have to take the back off the dryer and open up the enclosure for the heating element and vacuum it out. The lint clogs the airway, which restricts the airflow, which lets the heating element get too hot, which is why the thermal fuse shuts it off. Otherwise, it would catch fire (and in some cases, still does). It should be good for another few years when you get the lint out. Good luck.

Roper dryer model REX 3514RQ1. dryer works for/then quits. help!!


I have seen this before. You have got to remove the housing for the filter. Blow out the area around the blower and get the junk out of there. Wash out the filter housing.

My dryer is acting up


Sounds like you've done everything except check for air flow? When you run it, do you get ANY air flow thru the vent? If not , then your blower is either defective, not working or clogged.. Hope that helps..

Dear sloika,
I do not believe the problem lies within the dryer unit.
when the dryer unit fails to dry clothes in reasonable time 90% of the time it is the clogged air vent is the reason.
Dryer vent cleaning improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer installation. As dryer vents become filled with lint and other debris, drying time increases and can cause the dryer itself to overheat. This increases energy consumption since the dryer has to run longer to dry your clothes and can also cause fires in the dryer or the dryer duct. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports dryer related home fires are on the increase.
  • First check your vent hose between the back of dryer and the air outlet on the wall. Vaccum clean the dirty hose and even into the dryer unit using flexable vaccum attachment. also try to vaccum clean airoutlet that goes into your wall as far reach into and much as possible. The dryer's lint filter and its path needs to be cleaned as well.
  • If all air flow path are cleaned it will improve 200% of your drying time.
There is also professional dryer vent cleaners in your area who can help solve the problem. just check your yellowpages..

Good luck!
