You don't, it is gas dryer, so I advise you to get a authorized gas technician to look at your unit.
Chances are the blower assembly is out of whack, maybe the motor is off its brackets.

Inglis Gas Dryer... mercy me?

Sounds like what you said. Time for a motor. The motor has an internal overload and will shut the machine off if the motor runs hot.
Good Luck

It sounds like the drum bearing is bad. It can prevent the drum from turning and overheat the motor and cause it to shut off.
Another possibility is that the belt has broken and the motor is just spininig. Some dryers have a safety that prevents the dryer from staying on it the drum is not turning.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Makes a humming nose when you press start


Gas Dryers may produce buzz when the solenoid opens. The valve clicks at the start of the heat cycle, start of ignition and when the burner turns off. The flame makes a low roaring sound.

Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight.

Make sure dryer is level on the floor, and that nothing is leaning against the dryer.

Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)

Good Luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated

LG DLG 3788W not heating

can you look in one of the holes in the back and see if the inside glows orange after you turn it on? If it doesn't could be the igniter, if it does glow orange, clicks or clacks, and glows again 20-30 seconds later, click/clack and nothing, it's probably the gas valve. I'm going through the same thing with a new one and they had to order the valve and a new controller board in case it is bad too. If you are handy, have an electronic tester, and have the patience, go to for the service manual and disassembly instructions and see if you want to tackle the test flow for no heat. I just stumbled on the site.
