It is a breker in the dryer and you can reset it yourself and het it fixed and drying. Hre is how you can do it...
If you lift off the top by prying it up in the 2 front corners with a flat tip screw driver it will lift up to the back and then take out the 2 top front screws.There are 2 screws in the front off the lint catcher that you get to by opening the front door take them out and then the front off the dry comes off. Then you have to look at the heating tube (where the gas is ignited and the fire burns, which is in the bottom of the dyer under the drum) on the sides of the tube are sensors that are in holes in the tube, There is one that is on the side of the tube on the inside towards the middle of the dryer, it has 2 wires connected to it and in between the 2 wires where they connect to the sensor is a very small button which is a breaker. Push the button in and the gas will start to ignite again and you will get heat in the drum. I am not sure why this does this but it will happen more and more if it starts to happen, so you will start to get used to taking the front off. A service man showed me this after his 3rd trip within days to my house after I asked him how he was fixing it so fast without replacing anything. This was within a year of purchase... I am acually going to replace the switch to see if this will stop it from tripping like it does now which sometime can be as much as in between every load or can go for weeks with no problem....I have the matching pair of LG Front Loading Washer and Dryer which were very expensive and although they do a great job when working it is when they are working that is the problem. Since being new in 3 years both have broken numerous times including this self repairing pain in the *** problem which you are just starting to go thru. I have just gotten done fixing the washer for the 5th time by installing a sensor on the motor to keep the drum spinning this is 2nd one and I can't even tell you how many other repairs I have done. But I can telll you I can take apart to pieces by memory both of them in minutes from doing it so much and for the money spent this should not be this way. You should not have to spend a couple thousand dollars on a washer and dryer and have to become a repair man for the LG company just to get your wash done but yet this is what hapeened to me and it isnt right..LG was great the first few times with service calls but would not replace them and after a while you get sick of waiting for service and just start fixing it yourself, it is just easier and faster...wish I would of bought something else, :-(.....I have had $400 washers ans dryers that lasted 15 years with no problems that did as good a job as these......:-(

If you can hear the dryer start and operate but at end of cycle your clothes are wet then it is likely (assuming the heater is turning on) that the fluff collection on the condensor unit is blocking its operation.
Refer manual at this site and follow instructions on page 20.
The control unit on the tumble dryer will vary among
different makes and models. The main purpose of the controls is to allow
the user to select the drying cycle. You can choose the time and
temperature setting on most units, while others allow custom settings
such as moisture sensors and end-of-cycle alert signals. The controls
may include a dial or a touch panel and LED screen display. Some tumble
dryers allow you to independently select the appropriate time for the
load you are drying and separate programs for temperature.
The motor inside the tumble dryer spins the basket to allow
the clothes to tumble while being dried. The tumbling action allows the
air to pass through the clothing to dry them faster. Heating laundry
that is stagnant will likely dry the clothing on the outside while
leaving damp clothing inside the pile. The constant motion, along with
the heat and steam created by heating the clothing, reduces wrinkles.
The motor also powers the fan that delivers the heated air to the basket
of laundry. The heater can be an electrical element or gas powered.
If you are setting the knob to begin a cycle AND the drum turns when you start it AND the timer knob does not advance, the timer is likely defective.
Some dryers with truly automatic cycles (using moisture or temperature sensors) will not advance the timer if there is a no-heat condition due to a bad thermostat or heating element. This would show as the dryer tumbling a load forever and the clothes are cold and wet when checked.
If the dryer will not do anything at all AND the timer knob does not advance, check the power (circuit breaker/fuse), then the dryer door switch. When the door switch is defective or the door isn't fully closing, it stops everything, period. There is a thermal fuse on some machines that will also cause this problem.
Good luck from Detroit, MI.
Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.
Make sure you have the dryer set to the correct cycle, and not delicate or air only.
Make sure the drying cycle time runs for the set period. If not, the timer may be faulty.
Make sure the dryer is tumbling (the drum is turning). If not, you may have a drive issue like a bad or broken belt, or some other mechanical drive issue.
Make sure the lint screen is clean and the dryer exhaust all the way to the outside of the dwelling is clear and not obstructed with lint or anything else. If you don't feel a pretty good beeze coming out of the wall discharge vent, start looking for a plugged vent.
There could also be an exhaust fan issue with the dryer if the vent line is clear. If this is plugged or not working, the back of the dryer will need to be removed and the cause(s) determined.
Make sure the dryer isn't overloaded and that the clothes aren't too wet when they are placed in the dryer, possibly pointing to a spin dry issue with your washing machine.
You are correct. Pull the dryer out and disconnect your venting from the back of the dryer. Turn your dryer on and check to make sure your dryer is blowing air out of the dryer duct. If it is then leave your dryer out at least 2 ft from the wall and run a load of clothes through the dryer. If it dries your clothes normally then you have a venting restriction. Check to make sure your venting is clean, not kinked or smashed, make sure your outside vent is opening an doesn.t have something blocking it. Check your lint screen filter by running water through it. If water is not flowing through it, you have a build up of fabric softener on your screen, blocking air flow. Scrub your screen off and test again. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
