You need to access the lint filter and clean it. Details on the procedure depend on the dryer model and are illustrated on the owners manual. After cleaning the filter open the dryer door or press start to turn off the light. Try also disconnecting power for five minutes .If the "check lint screen" light does not go off after this there may be a problem with main board, or with ventilation.

    If the problem persists, then the exhaust must be checked. About lint sensor and other parts, to be more specific I would need the model number of the appliance.

    THere is no sensor. The error is prompted when overheating is detected.

    Please see diagram below. Click on the picture to enlarge.

    Lint screen is part 64. Unscrew lint housing, remove the filter and and clean it. Hoover the filter housing.

    If that is not enough, check for lint in parts 22 (exhaust), 5 (air duct) and 45 lint duct. Hoover this parts.

    If still no luck, then the thermostats in the heater assembly must be tested.


    Here all parts and diagrams for your dryer.

    The two wires are a kind of switch. They close the circuit when the filter is in place. That does not detect the amount of lint. I am not sure if that can also trigger the error code. The case is not reported in service manual and this is not a common failure.

    There is one thermistor (42)

    Thermal cut off (47)

    Hi limit thermostat (48)

    There is also a thermal fuse .

    If the dryer is heating, then the thermostats are OK.

Check filter light blinking will not start only beeps what to do please help

Probably a lint buildup on the sensor. Need to clean the entire lint system. Should be able to remove the plastic frill if the lint filter is inside the drum. Remove the two screws and clean out all the lint then pull the dryer out remove the vent hose. Run a vacuum hose or reach up i to there and pull out the li t. Then clean out the vent hise...a broom handle works if it's a straight shot.

Lint light flashing

The problem may be with air flow through the lint filter screen. The filter is a fine screen and even though it appears to be lint free, it may not be. Spray the screen with a degreaser, use a soft brush to gently scrub it, and rinse under running water. This may solve your problem.

Lint screen light is on, dryer won't start!

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.
