If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!
You will be fine now!

The check filter light is just a reminder. Goes off once dryer starts. Dryer not working has nothing to do with that reminder. Check to see if belt is broken. When it breaks, it stops motor from working. Just take top off and tug on belt.
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.
do you mean a condenser dryer?, as steam is water doesn't dry anything to well, if it is a condenser dryer the check filter or clean filter light should always come on towards the end of the cycle (varies between models some have both clean filter and empty tank lights on at end of cycle just as a reminder to do so and some don't have any lights), it is simply a reminder for you to clean the filter after each use unless this is something that has only just recently happened
Hi friend,,, welcome to fixya try to unplug it for 30 minutes this should reset the control board. and clear any errors it has. and may start working again. let me know how it goes
try this to get it in diagnostic test mode have the dryer in standby mode then press and hold more time and less time and then press the power button to get out of this mode you will have to unplug the unit for at least 1 minute
I'm sure you solved the problem but as i had the same problem on my electric LG front loader and saw no response i figured I would leave one for anybody else in the future. My girlfriend told me the dryer would not start and as i looke i saw the panel would not power up, I unplugged the power cord for 5 minutes and the LG reset and the panel was on and reading clean filter after checking the filter which appeared clean I tried to restart the dryer at which time it powered off. I again unplugged the dryer and replugged it and again the display read clean filter. I then gtabbed a phillips #2 and unscrewed the filter lint sceen which had a total of 4 scews in the interior of the dryer holding the filter housing unit. Youll see a piece of the housing unit remains screwed into the washer hooked up to two electrical plugs. Seperate both plugs from the unit and unscrew it and remove the unit youll notice two silver strips on the unit and I'm guessing will be covered with a small amount of lint. Clean the unit with a brush and damp cloth inside and out reattach the unit screw first and housing unit and turn on. If the dryer again turns off unplug and youll see the clean filter light. Simply push the custom program light or anything similar and the panel should start working again. I hope this helps someone.
