Question about LG DLG5988 Gas Dryer

2 Answers

Check Filer i can't use my machine it keeps telling me to check my filter, i have already cleaned it and keeps telling me to check it. The dryer was run without the lint screen in it, so i beleaive that there must be a filter inside the unit that needs to be reset.

    I'm having kind of the same problem. The "check filter" light is on, I've cleaned the filter, but the light stays on. Seems to work OK but how do I reset te light?

The clean filter light is just a reminder light.  There is no reset button.  It will always come on when you turn on the unit.

hmmm..no lint screen means that you have lint buildups inside the machine...check the air lines, and in and out for the vents..first.

What does it mean when it tell you to clean filter and the filter is already clean


That clean filter symbol is just a reminder to clean the filter after every dryer load--I'm assuming this unit is a dryer, however it's listed under washing machines.

HOW TO CLEAN FILTER IN 57700


Based on just giving the model number 57700 ... I assume this is a condenser dryer from AEG??
If so ... in addition to cleaning the fluff filter ... make sure the water reservoir is totally empty and that the condenser is clean. You may have already checked these. If so ... then the issue could be where ever your sensor is ... and I am not sure where that is
Good luck on your troubleshooting

Dryer wont heat


Sounds like your heating element has went out. So you will either have to replace it $100 to $150 or purchase a new one

Cleaning Inglis washing machine IP41003.


Wonderful product on the market called "Affresh" comes in a tablet form. Place one tablet in the basket, and start the "hottest" and "longest" cycle and let it run. Be sure to leave the lid open or up when not in use, and be sure to keep that boot clean. The filter should be removed and cleaned "they say" every 3-5 months, but I tell my customers it depends on how you use and take care of the machine. If you forget to clean your pockets, get coins or pens, or use "smaller" items of clothes without a garment bag, then check more often. Also if you have small or very young children, check more often. Easy way to tell, pull out filter (watch for the water), and see whats in it. If it has a bunch of stuff, check it more often, nothing in it, maybe once a year.

My legacey washer is leaving lint on clothes


Of course you've probably already done this but if not, check the filter and clean it. Additionally, you might need to wash it to remove residue from dryer sheets and BE SURE TO DRY IT BEFORE PUTTING IT BACK IN THE DRYER. If the filter is clean and washed and you're still having lint, get a dryer brush and clean down in the area where the filter goes. Also go to the vent area outdoors and clean that with the dryer brush. That area can become clogged over time and prevent the dryer from effectively removing the lint. Furthermore, check the exhaust piping. If it is bent, gently move it a little to dislodge any lint that might have gotten stuck there over the years.

I have a large capacity front load LG electric dryer. I keep getting the "check filter" message & the filters are clean. The dryer will not stay on. HELP!


The message does not only refer to filters, badly written.
There is an air flow restriction that the machine senses and is warning about.
check the fan and fan housing for lint that has got past the screens, then pull the dryer away from the wall and check the exhaust duct for lint, all the way to the wall
then check the outside wall vent for lint build up in the rodent screen
