You cannot get the back off. You work from the front.
Remove the top first by getting the rear screws off then remove the controls and top front brace then remove the drum glide then the take the belt loose and lift out the drum. You will now be able to examine the motor.

It's A circuit breaker located on the out side of the burner at the 7 o'clock position. You need to remove the front panel to get to it. Unplug the dryer before doing this.

LG DLG0452W: Light inside the drum stays on even after closing the door tightly and dryer does not start. It flashes to check the lint tray but there isn't anything in there. HELP!!

If that light stays on I would say something definitely is wrong with the door safety lock mechanism. I have an LG dryer service manual that may help you: LG GAS& ELECTRIC DRYER repair manual

Our DLG0452W dryer will not start occasionally, I then open the door and push in the door switch and rotate the drum and quickly close the door and 1 out 4 times it will keep running. Next time it may be...

The problem is with the centrifugal switch on the dryer motor. This switch connects the start winding of the motor which provides additional torque at startup. Once the dryer is up to speed, the switch disconnects the start winding. If it malfunctions, the dryer will not turn and the motor will hum. By spinning the drum, you are providing enough torque for the start winding to be able to take over and bring the dryer up to speed.

You may be able to correct this by simply lubricating the centrifugal switch which may be sticking. I am not sure if the centrifugal switch is replacable, or if a new motor is necessary if lubricating does not solve your problem.
