Check lint filter and touch up keep coming on-beeping

The drier is working fine, but even after hitting cancel, the check lint screen light and the touch up light come on again and it beeps. This goes on for a while and then it stops and comes on again several hours later. We tried unplugging it, but once plugged back in the problem returns. Any advice would be appreciated.

Clean out entire venting system. If you are using flexable hose type, replace with solid metal type or at least replace with new hose. You may have a clog my friend.

Drier's check filter light keeps beeping... trouble shoot?

the check filter indicator on the display panel was designed to serve as a reminder to clean the lint filter before each use to ensure great drying every time. This indicator does not mean that there is anything is wrong with your dryer and will automatically turn off once you begin your drying cycle.

Maytag drier lint screen will not go in all the way

I had this problem as well. I pulled the lint filter out and vacuumed everything and it still wouldn't go down. I made sure to clean all the 'tracks' around the edge of the filter, in case that was causing the problem. No luck. I stuck my fingers in and even pulled the interior cover off to get at whatever was holding it up and still NOTHING.

But then I found the problem! The handle where you reach in and pull the filter out has to go in behind the interior vent cover. You have to stick your head in the dryer to see that it's catching. One side of my 'handle' wasn't going behind but resting on top. I pulled out the filter and then I gently pushed on the plastic interior filter cover for a few seconds and then tried the filter again. I did it several times before I got the cover pushed enough so the handle was nesting behind the cover properly.

My theory is that when the lint accumulates it lifts the filter up. And when the filter doesn't get nested all the way, the plastic cover softens enough in the heat that it bends slightly in. After a while, it bends in enough to keep the filter sitting slightly above where it ought to be and you can't get it down in there. I am going to keep my filter space cleaned out regularly to make sure the filter always sits down in there properly. But regardless, I figured it out so I can fix it again if I have to.

Frigidaire electric dryer (FEQ1442CES) keep flashing and beeping even after cleaning lint filter.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, keeps beeping and flashing lights. I also see that you have cleaned all the lint out and your appliance will not run more than about 10 seconds. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance, determine what is causing the lights to flash and the beeping, and repair your dryer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

When I press start, it sometimes does nothing.

Hello,, there is likely a switch incorporated in your lint filter assembly that is defective, a close examination of how the lint filter is positioned will reveal the location of the switch, you can use an ohm meter to check the switch operation or for the cost of it maybe just replace it, the control panel is not at fault.

My LG dryer says check filter but I've cleaned the wire filter and the lint that was trapped under the filter. It still says check filter. Is there another filter?

I relocated my drier and noticed the same light when I plugged it back in. The owner's manual states that the light comes on whenever the drier is turned on, to remind you to check the one and only lint screen.

Dryer check filter light keeps blinking and dryer will not start cleaned lint filter and nothing happened display on control board blinks when dryer is turned on and that's about it can you assist dyer...

There is a reminder light to "Check Lint Filter" near the lower right of the cycle knob. It will come on every time the power button is pushed. After cleaning the lint filter, if the "check lint screen" light does not go off, it is likely that the touch pad control will need replacement.

Bosch Axxis Starts and stops

The lint light keeps coming on and shuts the dryer off so clothes are not dry. I checked the filter and it is clear. Now the bottom of filter is cracked (plastic part) so I need to replace. But why does the lint light come on now after 5 years of use? It never came on before even when the lint filter was full?

Not heating

DEAR FRIEND,
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!

Did you check the outside vent opening!If the screen outside that prevents small animals from entering gets even half way cloged, you will loose heat!!!

Otherwise this is a situation that you will need service!


Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service
A Nation Wide Company. / Available 24 / 7 for arranging appointments! In the USA.
1(800) 905-9505

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!


Good luck!
You will be fine now!

Thank You
Bless you,ngfam1

Keep getting 3 beeps and the lights come on while its beeping.

Mine has been beeping incessantly as well. Turned out that even though I was cleaning the filter after each load, there was still a ball of lint the size of a tennis ball that was blocking the lint sensor. To fix, I removed the screws from the plastic piece that holds the lint trap and slid it out (it won't come out entirely.) Then I used the mini attachments for my vacuum to remove the lint from the bottom of that space. Once I did that, the dryer has been working flawlessly.
