    Yes, but why does the vent fill up every two months? I have another similar dryer and the vent has never filled up after five years!

My dryer keeps stopping after 5mins into the cycle. The drying timed light comes on and I don't know how to cancell it.

you can try turning off power to the unit for a minute
breaker/plug and see if it resets a Make and Model # would help us a lot.

Why my dryer starts normal runs then stops the check filter light on

The Check Filter light comes on when the dryer's sensors suspect that the filter is overly full of lint. This is sensed by temperature and moisture in the drum. If the filter is not full , check to be sure that the vent ducting is not clogged or blocked.

My BOSCH dryer #WTE86300US keeps stopping in mid cycle and gives the signal -0- what does mean that error code?

check fluff filter usually in the door is clear, it can be that it is overheating due to lack of air as the fluff filter is full. also check air escape pipe is clear and not blocked or folded.

I hope this was useful.

How stop front loading electric dryer vibration while drum is rotating clothes.

110 means you have a whirlpool dryer. If the filter is on top then I would say you have a bad glide, if the filter is in the door you have a bad wheel, very rare. At any rate you need to open it up and inspect it.

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?
