If the dryer doesn't heat, the igniter might be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer igniters burn out over time.
Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn't heat, the flame sensor might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.
If the above check out OK, check the high level thermostat, although not common, if the dryer doesn't heat, the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for continuity. If the thermostat is "open circuit" the dryer doesn't heat.

How may belts on lg tromm dryer


The start button is a momentary start button. It energizes a relay type switch to keep power on. Try holding the start button in for awhile and do not let go. If the machine keeps running, then for sure, the relay type switch is defective and needs to be replaced with a new one.
