Check Vent Indicator - Error Code - Dryer

Possible Solutions

Check Vent indicator lit

If the Check Vent indicator is lit, it means the airflow is limited going through the dryer and to the outside. This can be due to the lint screen or vent is clogged; the vent is crushed or kinked or has too many turns.

The dryer will continue to run when this indicator is lit. Try the following:

  • Clean lint screen. 
  • Check to see if the vent run from the dryer to the wall is crushed or kinked.
  • Confirm that the vent run from the dryer to the wall is free of lint and debris.
  • Confirm that the exterior vent exhaust hood is free of lint and debris.
  • Confirm that your vent system falls within the recommended run length and number of elbows for the type of vent you are using. Refer to “Plan Vent System” in the Installation Instructions for details.
  • Select a Timed Dry heated cycle, and restart the dryer.
  • If the indicator remains lit, have your entire home venting run cleaned. If you are unable to do this yourself, you will need to contact a duct cleaning service.

If you are unsure if your venting is clear, we can send a Vent Test Kit no charge. Contact Customer Service to get a vent test kit.
