Make sure the entire vent is clean all the way to the outside. It more than likely overheating a little due to a stopped up vent system.

If you use dryer sheets they create a wax coating on the lint screen,even tho it looks clean,use dish soap and hot water to remove this,dry it then put it back in and try it.

SOURCE: dryer won't start and the check lint screen light

It may not be your lint filter but instead be a clogged duct. I would suggest removing the duct and check for clogs or a kink in the duct itself. Then check the interior and exterior vent and remove any visible lint. If you exterior vent is a louvered type, check to see that its opening properly.

Clean lint screen light keeps blinking


The clean lint screen light is just a dummy light. There is no sensor for that.
If it's giving you a AF error then disconnect the vent and run it. If it completes the cycle then it's your vent. If not it's your thermistor.

Dryer check filter light keeps blinking and dryer will not start cleaned lint filter and nothing happened display on control board blinks when dryer is turned on and that's about it can you assist dyer...


There is a reminder light to "Check Lint Filter" near the lower right of the cycle knob. It will come on every time the power button is pushed. After cleaning the lint filter, if the "check lint screen" light does not go off, it is likely that the touch pad control will need replacement.

Sears HE3 Dryer - "Check Lint Screen" light is on. I cleaned lint screen and area around screen but light will not extinguish and dryer will not turn on. I unplugged dryer for a time and plugged back in...


I am not familiar with your dryer, but it sounds like a safety mechanism where if your lint screen is not cleaned the dryer will not turn on. That "Check Lint Screen" light for your dryer may be connected to a sensor near the lint screen area. Check that out and see if that is the problem. If there is a sensor it could be faulty,

Lint Filter Light comes on and cycle is interupted


Depending on how old this is or how much it is used depends how much lint has built up inside
the air flow tube. I have seen where you look inside where the lint screen is and beneath it with screen removed there is nothing but lint, in which case the dryer thinks the screen is clogged. You might have two screws on the inside of the drum that hold the screen holder in place. First remove the lint screen
and hold the little door that closes when you remove the screen, open the little door and look down inside it with a flash light, if you see a lot of lint, like I said you might be able to remove the holder
and clean this area out, also take a coat hanger and bend a little piece at the end and use this to get most of the lint out of this area and the tube that Leeds down from this area. If this can be done
and you get this area clean and it still happens, you might have to clean the entire area the tube
and the back tube,the tube leeding to the outside of the house and vent. Any questions please post back.

Dryer Problem Lint light keeps coming on and dryer will not work


When you say you vacumed the lint area, did you mean the lint catcher underneath where the lint screen sits? The most effective way is to remove the 2 1/4" screws on the bottom of the lower front panel. Once you have the panel down and off, you will see a lint chute (the part under the lint screen). Remove the lint screen, 2 more 1/4" screws towards the top of the lint chute on either side and a 1/4 screw on the bottom by the black clip and youcan remove it for best cleaning and also any possible build up around your blower wheel (the white looking fan underneath the lint chute) Can you run it sucessfully without the hose attached? It could indicate a problem between where the hose enters the wall and exits to the outside of the building. (it will get very hot, humid and a little linty doing this test, but it would eliminate any kind of blockage with the venting). When you washed you lint screen did you scrub it? I usually use soap water and an old tooth brush as you can actually get a clear coating on the screen without even being able to see it. How do your seals look? (put your head in the dryer drum and you will see a grey ring both in the rear and as you look back towards yourself) Are they dammaged? Have you cleaned your moisture sensors? This can cause a false error. While you have your head in the drum and are looking back towards the front, you should see 2 silver bars. Clean them off with the abrasive side of a sponge or a fine grit sand paper. If it is still malfuntioning, drop me a note back with your model and serial numbers (loacted just inside as you open the door) and I will see what else I can come up with.
