Question about LG Dryers
Take off your LINT Ducting and clean out completely, all the way to the outside hole in your house.
There is a heat limiting switch that turns off the unit if the heat gets to a temperature in the Lint Duct that is too high and is very dangerous.
If the air flow is limited too much, then the free flow of air can not be carrying out the heat generated by the machine to dry the clothers. You could have, and probably do have a nasty clog in your ducting, so hence, the air is not getting out successfully and it is staying all in the dryer unit. When the temperature reaches the LIMIT ALLOWED, then it shuts it off to prevent a instant FIRE.
The good news is your sensor is working, and the bad news is you gotta take the ducting apart and clean it good.
HINT: Make sure you DO NOT have any loops or low spots or lengths of hose that make the dryer have to blow the lint UP HILL. That is a common mistake because damp lint is heavy and it will build up anywhere there is a place that the air flow will not carry the weight of the damp lint, hence it drops it right there and starts a build up until it is blocked and then the sensor feels the temperature reach the Upper Limit and shuts off your machine. You may have to reroute your dryer ducting in a manner that the air flow is always level or even better, slopping down a little.
Good luck, and be sure to unplug the dryer before you start digging around the back and/or inside your machine.

Yup, shortly after I posted this question I was able to find that it was indeed the valve coils. Very easy to get to and replace. Cheap too! Got both of them for about $20 thru www.appliancepartspros.com. Same parts would have cost about $70 thru Sears direct.
Patrick, they are located on the burner unit under the drum in the front left. You can get a diagram of the burner unit by looking up Parts for your model # at Sears.com.
Only tricky thing is you may need to have someone help hold the tumbler in place when you put the belt back on the motor. Personally I found it easier to use two hands to manipulate the belt around the motor and tension bracket and have my wife hold the drum in place rather than to try and balance it myself.

Set the timer one day, later clothes not warm at all, dryer still running and timer had not moved. It has never heated up again. Can you help me figure out the problem? Where all the heating elements, thermostats etc may be. thank you for your help.

SOURCE: cooling light
The cooling light should be blinking. Mine did the same thing. It ended up being the fuse that was going to the dryer from the circuit breaker itself. I ended up replacing the whole heating element thinking that was the problem. Turned out to be a $17 fuse and problem solved. Hope this helps.
