Question about LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer
I have an electric dryer from LG, it is the TROMM DLE2514W Front Load Dryer, purchased in December, 2005. When we turn it on, all of the lights start flashing rapidly, and the Check Filter light is on. I have checked and cleaned the lint filter, and have made sure the duct from the back of the unit to the outside is free of any obstructions. After turning it on and off, the process continues, and the unit will not work when hitting the Start button, as the drum will turn about a quarter turn and then stop and all of the lights remain blinking or fixed in the case of the Check Filter light. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to proceed. Thanks!
I had exactly the same problem with my newish LG dryer. I deduced that the dryer's computer essentially needed to be rebooted. I pulled the plug for a minute or so, then plugged it back in. It works perfectly now.

I had the same exact problem with my dryer it is an LG DLE2514W, I called the service center and they had me unplug the unit, push and hold the start/pause button for 8 seconds, then reconnect the unit. It worked perfectly.

I had this problem, said check filter, would not turn on. I read somewhere that it always says check filter, and figure I just never notice it, because it works. But I unplugged, and plugged back in. Turned it on and it still didn't work. I then got CL and realized that meant child lock. I held that button down, unlocked it, and it worked. So I am thinking one of my children may have turned on the CL and that's why it would not turn on.

Same exact thing as in the first question. I followed the advice to unplug and it's working perfectly!! Thank you so much...you just saved me hundreds of dollars!

I have exactly the same dryer.I've found cleaning inside where the lint screen goes usually helps,because stuff does get past the lint screen which cogs against the impeller and ducting under the dryer.

Dryer isn't drying like it should, and it kind of has a burning smell. Tried cleaning the lint filter from the dryer itself all the way to exterior of the house. It's just over 3 years old any suggestions?

Removed the lint filter. Pulled most of the lint out of inside where lint screen goes....dryer now works fine.

Mpot, I think you are looking at either a door switch problem or idler pulley switch problem. Because of the flashing lights, I would start with the door switch. If it was a thermistor, you should be getting a error code. Of course make sure you have a proper connection to the terminal block, where the cord attaches. The idler pulley switch is a safety device to stop the unit in the event the belt breaks, but they have been know to go bad. Catriver..post back.

We had the same problem with the TROMM LG dryer.
Inspired by the other answers posted here, we eventually found that the problem was that the button of damp dry beep was stuck, i.e. pressed previously but did not pop back. The button is located at the lower right corner of the control panel. So it caused the internal computer software stuck at a certain step, not being able to respond when other buttons are press. Any button behaving as described may cause a similar problem of dryer malfunctioning.
1) filter cleaned, dust under the filter removed (some online video mentioned that it is due to the dust underneath the lint filter, we tried it, but no vail.)
2) check filter light still blinking after the machine is turned on
3) no response to any button, if pressed

The "Check Filter" light on our LG DLEX3360W was blinking on the dryer display as were several other codes including the "CL" (Child Lock) code. After ensuring that the lint filter was clean as well as the outlet tube on the back of the dryer, I proceeded to 1). Unplug the dryer from the wall for 5 minutes (hoping it would clear the display); that did not clear my blinking display; 2). Turned off the electrical breaker to the dryer for 5 minutes (again, hoping it would clear the display); that too did not fix my blinking display. After turning on the power to the dryer, the "Clean Filter" and the "CL" codes were still blinking. I made the mistake of thinking "CL" meant "Clear." It doesn't. It is an indicator that the "Child Lock" feature for the dryer is turned on. The dryer will not turn on while the child lock feature is on. I pressed the "Easy Iron/Child Lock" button (it's a multi-function button) for 3 seconds and the child lock feature was turned off. Once turned off, the dryer worked fine. NOTE: The "Clean Filter" light was still blinking after turning the child lock feature off. This should go away after a new drying cycle is run again. Hope this helps!

My DLE2514 flashing "end", etc. "CL" on display. Clean filter light flashing. I cleaned out exhaust from filter to external vent with reverse leaf blower. Still "CL". Then read this sight and unplugged dryer for one minute....works fine for now. Thanks.

I have just purchased Aug. 08 a new lg dryer DLEV833W, I have not dried any sheets that have not ended up in a ball, all wrinkled, and still wet on the inside of the ball. Give me a break my old kenmore dryer that was 18 years old did a better job than this.

Clean the vent all the way to the outside.
The dryer will take 4-5 loads to reset the filter sensor.
Mahe sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.
