Take top off, start drying cycle and see if you can see an orange glow on bottom right front of unit-the Glow plug igniter. If it glows, then you have a different issue. If no orange glow, replace igniter.
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.

My gas one just did this. I tested the fuse myself located on the side of the lint trap. It was fine using my electrical tester. I then took the 2 coils off which are easy they are located on the burner. 2 screws removed the plate under are the 2 coils. Took them to ACE hardware were they tested them. The 2 prong was stuck in the open position. The three prong was fine. , I still replaced both and it works great now. What happened was the burner would kick on then when it hit operating temperature it would shut off. Then when it needed to kick on again the 2 prong being stuck in the open position wouldn't ignite burner again.
DLE2532W is an electric heat model. (a gas model would be a DLG......) To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.
hi thanks for the question i would also check the thermal fuse when you purchase the hi limit thermostat also purchase the fuse a lot of dirt in venting will cause the thermal fuse to fail the appliance doc
