My samsung electric clothes...

My samsung electric clothes dryer model dv42h5200ep/a3 won't start. The indicator has a flashing red "filter check". My dryer has a clean filter and the exhaust vent if clean. Thanks, Mick

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Samsung is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The dryer is 2 years old and the model # DV42H5200EP/A3

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Samsung is slow to respond and I am try to repair it myself

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

When I talked to Samsung on Friday they said that there is two sensors for the filter
