I had the entire length of the exhaust hose on the dryer

Customer Question

I had the entire length of the exhaust hose on the dryer professionally cleaned today. Lots of lint in 20-25 feet of hose. I feel like they got the lint and debris out--the air flow at the outside of the house is strong. But, the flow sensor lights up. No bars. Is that light always on, like for example the display that says "drying", etc. Thanks very much
JA: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: LG, 2 years old at most. Not at home, so not sure of model. Front loading, lots of lights, choices
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Just today had the entire length of the dryer hose, from dryer to out side professionally cleaned, so don't think any work is necessary now, unless the flow sensor light being on is a problem
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: We're diligent about cleaning the lint filter after every load
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Appliance Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

That light is always on during a cycle. It is when you have bars lit up that there is an issue. No bars means no issue! :)
