Whenever I find myself questioning my item I always refer back to my owners manual which has some useful information. If you do not have your owners manual then no problem. A very handy instrument that Manage My Life has is you are able to find your owners manual here at no cost to you. All you have to do is go to the top of the page and click on the tab that says "MANUALS" a search box should come up and in there you can go ahead and type in your model number. Your owners manual should be available for you to view. I have attached a link below if you are interested in viewing while you are waiting on your response from an expert. Hope this helps, good luck!

The clean lint filter led is not an error code this is just a reminder to clean the lint screen before starting a new cycle. If your dryer has a failure of some kind the best way to diagnose the problem is to put the control into a test mode. The leds on the control will flash & beep the error code information. Once we have the error code we will have a direction to head into. I am attaching instructions from the service manual explaining the test mode set up, error code list & troubleshooting with repair tips.

Remember to

disconnect power

to the dryer before attempting access.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Sears Home Services


SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
