Most of the time on your model it is the dryer main fuse that pops,you can pop the top and look to the right of the drum on the back wall all you will see a little round fuse,you can get it from your local appliance parts store for around $10,if it happened all of the sudden could have just been a power surge pop it-mike

My LG Tromm dryer makes 3 clicking sounds when I push the start button. Everything lights up as if it is going to work, but when "start" is pushed, I just hear the 3 clicks and then nothing happens

If the drum doesn't turn, check the centrifugal switch on the motor shaft. Check if the belt hasn't broken or if it's off the motor shaft.

Drum won't turn-belt is good-motor

If you can manually turn the drum, the motor's start windings may be bad.

If you can't get the drum to move, check to see if a sock or other small item is stuck between the drum and the inside of the front of the dryer. If you see nothing, it's possible that one or more of the four drum rollers is/are seized.

Sounds like a potentially bad motor. When trying to start the dryer, it may have opened the thermal protector, which is why you are no longer getting the noise. Check that nothing is just stuck in the drum seal or blower wheel, seizing the motor. If all is clear, replace the motor.
