the blinking filter light is just a reminder, not connected to anything. goes out when you start cycle. however, if the dryer overheated then it may have blown the thermistor fuse. check out appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com for how to videos and parts.
Without actually seeing exactly where the item of clothing is lodged, this will be a tough problem to resolve. However, as a guess I will suggest the following:
Carefully pull your dryer away from the wall, far enough so you can get behind it. Be carefull not to stretch, pinch or damage your gas line. Next, with a screwdriver, unscrew the large vent clamp that attaches the aluminum vent to your dryer. Pull this vent pipe off the dryer inlet and see if you can access the lodged item. If not, you may have to attack the problem from within the dryer.
Gas models have a resetable high limit thermostat. It is a dime sized disc with two wires attatched located near the front side of the gas combustion chamber. There is a pin in the center of it which needs to be pushed in to reset it. It trips when dryer has poor vent conditions. (long and / or restricted air flow in vent)
Check your exhaust vent in the wall. It may be plugged with lint debris causing long drying times. Best way to test it is to disconnect the vent from the wall and run a normal load to see if the dryer runs normally. If so, you will need to have a professional clean out your exhaust vent for proper operation.
Your vent to the outside is restricted and needs to be cleaned out. To check this, remove the vent line behind the dryer and run a load. If the clothes come out dry in a normal time, the problem is in your vent.
if the cloths are warm and wet the problem is not with the dryer but in the venting. check the air flow at the end of the line (where the exhaust leaves the building) if the air baffels are not fully opening when the drier is on there is probably an issue with the venting. remember to tape up the venting joints after inspecting it because it is also the exhaust for the gas. hope this helps.
