Wrong Richard-sorry- but had this issue. Check filter light would come on and I ignored it (after checking for built up lint) and now the dryer wont start. I pulled everything apart and it seems I had a duct loose inside letting all the lint inside the dryer. It was a warning I ignored.

Try taking out the lint screen and scrubbing it well in the sink with hot water and a brush. If you havent cleaned out below the lint screen, get a vacuum and a crevice tool and remove any standing lint as well as cleaning the vent. Bosch lint screens clog easily especially if you are a big fabric softener user.
We had the same problem as many here have described. After cleaning out the vent system with compressed air and a vacuum cleaner, the appliance still failed to start. I unplugged the unit for a few minutes, turned it back on and it still failed to start. I turned the rotary dial to "SHORT" pressed start and it worked!!!! Not sure if thats the magic sequence or i just got lucky but Good luck.
Did you put a load of wet clothes in the dryer and run it?
You can't change the setting while it's running.
The sensors won't let it heat up if there is nothing in the dryer.
This is not your grandmas dryer, this is a high tech machine.
There is probably nothing wrong with it.
Oh and the filter light flashes like that, it is supposed to, it is telling you to check the filter for lint.
I have the exact same problem. I am amazed at had been the engineering is for such a simple process. The user guide just says to clean the lint filter. Even when doing so, there is still an excessive build up of lint beyond reach. There are no instructions that mention how to clean this part. It is obvious that GE did not test this part of the machine.
