It does start properly
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
okay try this, run the dryer with the vent disconnected from the back, does the code return ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Really don't want to get into that since I cleaned the interior of the unit and had professional do the duct cleaning

Vent is on the roof, but I would assume so as there is residual lint on the ground
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
how far a run is the vent hose in feet?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
The cleaner yesterday said approximatelt 16 feet from the point of entry into the wall. There is only about 24 inches total within the dryer and extendind to the wall. HAve had the same configuration for four years with no problem. Prior to now.

what method of cleaning did he use? you see if there any clog that restricts the flow from 4" even down to 3" this will cause the fault, he may not have done it correctly or it may be some lint has fallen back down and partially clogged it without him knowing.
