Hello. Test the receptacle. If one of the hot leads isn't hot (120 volts), The light may come on, but the dryer may not operate. With breakers that throw two switches at one time (one to each bus bar, 120 volts each), it is possible that one side may be defective, or simply did not reset. If the receptacle is found to not have power on one of the hot leads, go back and reset the breaker several times. You can also test the output of the breaker with a volt meter, but extreme caution should be used if working behind the shield in a breaker box. You may have to go there anyway if the breaker is bad.
If all of this tests good, the next thing to check would be your wiring connections at the back of the dryer. Make sure that the outside leads of the pigtail are connected to the hot legs and the two inside leads are connected to the common and the ground lugs. If the receptacle tests out properly, you can also test the voltage at the dryer terminals. It could be as simple as a bad cord. It happens, rarely, but it does.
Best regards, --W/D--

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I'd suspect the belt has broken, come off it's pulley system or the kill switch is defective. These dryers have a "kill switch" by the motor that prevents the unit from starting if the belt breaks or comes off.
The service of LG dryers is mostly from the front, with some at top. As far as tear-down/repairing most LG dryers is essentially the same.
**insure the unit is unplugged from the wall...safety first**
Now remove the top via taking out two screws at the back, slide it towards the back and inch or so and lift up, it will come off. (you will be able to identify if the belt is off or broke before proceeding)
Next step is to remove the control panel. It will snap off the the top part, and some have a screw located on either side, i.e.
pull up or pry with a small screwdriver to release console clips from notches in metal support...
Pull the console towards you slightly (from front facing it) and reach in and disconnect the wire harness.
Set the console to the side ...
Now to remove the front panel...careful here the edges are sharp. Remove the screws at the top, and the two inside the door by the lint screen i.e.
Now the front panel will come forward enough to unplug the lamp...
Move the front panel to the side and you should be able to access and check the belt and switch. This is what to look for...
If the belt is off you can simply put it back on, obviously if it is broke you'll need to replace it.
Hope that helps get you fixed up, or moves you forward at least. Let me know what you find.
Good luck. Keep me posted.
