The drier is acting like a strainer however I would install pressure Taps on each side of the dryer to check pressure drop across It. To answer your question It shouldn't cause a problem If it blocks up then you have a problem. May I ask what caused the Failure of the Compressor?

mitsubishi is 100% right, do what they told you, If it was a bad burnout ,triple-evac. change the filter,run the unit for a month,go back dump the charge, change the filter one more time and move on.
