Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with the dryer today. The lint filter light doesn't necessarily mean the lint filter itself is clogged. It appears when the temperature thermistor sensor isn't detecting the air exiting the dryer properly. Run a cycle without the vent connected to the back of the dryer. If the dryer runs normally and doesn't shut down, then the vent through your house needs to be cleaned. If it still shuts down, replace the thermistor temperature sensor because it's not sensing properly. Below is a link to the thermistor for your model if you need it.
