Re: LG tumble dryer
This could be a worn out or loose belt.
You can get to it through an access panel on the back of the machine.
Just make sure the power is disconnected first!
Hopefully a replacement belt will be easy to obtain in your area.

If you can hear your motor spinning, then it is most likely caused by a broken drum belt.
If you can hear your motor 'humming' like it it stuck, then you might have faulty 'motor start capacitor'.
If you cannot hear the motor, then it maybe the drying controller board or sometimes the motor itself.
All cases involve dismantling the dryer and best left to a qualified dryer mechanics: check your warranty as the unit may still be under warranty (in which case, call the manufacturer help desk for instructions).
there is a sensor located beneath the lint filter, more the likely the dryer sheet residue is on it, gently brush it off, it has two screws. As far as the loud thud noise is/may be a problem with the drum/rollers/glides/belt/idler arm/motor Here is a website that will assist you, once the filter light goes off and the drum will not turn.Good Luck Tim
This sounds like the drum's drive belt broke. But also ensure there isn't a problem with the drive motor. Do you still hear a motor running when you turn it on? If so, you'll need to replace the drive belt.
It sounds like that screw has finally done its damage and got trapped in the end of the drum the drum would normally have to be removed to free it off.Can you turn the drum by hand if so then it would be advisable to check the drive belt if thats ok then it may be the motor or the capacitor of the motor.
This one can be difficult to track down. You've most likely got an electrical component or poor connection which is opening up as current passed through it and it warms up. Check the connections of the power cord to the dryer, the connections inside the home's dryer recepticle, and the connections in the home's breaker box. (of couse, proper percautions need to be observered to prevent electrical shock hazard when doing these tests) If those are all good and tight, some times a small item like a 6931EL3002A thermostat, located on the blower housing inside the dryer, can cause those symptoms. That one can be jumpered and run for a few minutes to see if it is the one at fault. Items like the thermister (6323EL2001B) (also on the blower housing) can not be jumpered to test.
Check your drum belt, sometimes this belt is broken or slipped off the motor pulley or idler arm pulley.
Also could be a faulty motor..
Another thing to try is to turn the drum by reaching inside of the drum and turning it by hand 1/4-1/2 turn with the dryer off. Then turn the dryer on again and see if it works.
Motors will sometimes get a dead zone in them and this help move it from the dead zone.
You must pop off the top of the dryer then remove the front after the front is off you can remove drum . The belt goes around the drum and the motor pully and under the tentioner wheel after you get belt on replace front and top.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG FROM POWER THIS IS 220volts AND CAN HURT YOU BAD
Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.
