So did ya clean it / just joking . the filter clean will show up if air flow is poor . it may be caused by poor air flow . heavy build or lint in filter area ( this prevents the fan's ability to move air from the dryer . and you may be getting longer dry times . so ck the vent out side and make sure the opening is clear and vent valve opens .. clean vent every year . and if needed clean out inside of dryer .( a tech's job ) this prvents lint fires . the clue is 1 takes longer to dry than normal . 2 top of drye is hoter than normal . 3 clothes come out to wet . 4 dryer shuts off befor cycle is done .. hope these help mm ( MAJIC **** )

That Kenmore dryer is a hybrid of a LG dryer that check filter lite is only a reminder for the customer to check their lint screen every load... You can call customer service at sears to confirm this. I have may customers call me and say it wasn't there before, I goto there house call customer service in the home, hand them the phone and collect a service call about 5 times a month. If every thing is drying well, just leave it alone.

Dryer stopped and said check lint screen

There is a lint screen,usually on top of the dryer, that pulls out to remove the lint,it is probably stopped up.

My dryer check lint screen light continues to blink and the dryer wont work even after cleaning lint screen

Airflow through the dryer vent is restricted. Blow through the filter opening with a reversed vaccum cleaned. Set it BLOW instead of **** usually by putting the hose on the exhaust end.

Check lint screen come on

Check the tubing the lint goes through (exhaust). This may be stopped up or clogged. There is a build up here of heat or something that is preventing proper air flow.

Kenmore Dyer blowing cold air

Try cleaning out the the vent tube. Sometimes lint gets caught up in there over time. Hope this helps.
