SOURCE: LG Dryer 5977 will not dry
If one of the two thermal fuses are blown you will not get heat. Thermal fuses blow (and are not resetable, they must be replaced) when the machine gets too hot. Often this is caused by not enough air flow through the machine. Check and make sure your exhaust vent is not clogged. Clean it the best you can to get all the lint, dead mice, bird nests, etc. out. Also make sure air is blowing out of the machine when it is turned on. If not you have a blower problem.

Hi, Here are the obvious parts to check: Heater, High limit, Thermal fuse or thermostats...these are all generally located in the back but some models you access them from front. the most common cause is either heater or thermal fuse, I will include a picture of the thermal fuse. If you test these parts and find they all work you may be looking at a centrifiacal switch problem.
Here is a picture of the thermal fuse check this part first:
Please feel free to contact again if you have any other problems.
Hope this helps.

If the dryer trips the breaker when the vent hose is disconnected, you may have a faulty breaker or other problems in the dryer. It also means there is probably an obstruction in the vent line. More air flows out when the vent is disconnected, hence the dryer will pull more amps to move more air. An amp meter would be useful to see if it is less than the rated amps of the dryer or if it above it. If it pulls more than the rated amps with the hose disconnected, there is other problems in the dryer adding to the amp draw. Another check is to see if the breaker is equal to or greater than the rated ampacity of the dryer. Sometimes a simple clean & lube of the dryer will lower the amps by 5 or 10. A misplaced toy stuck in the wrong spot will add 5 or 10 amps to the load too. spin the fan & drive motors by hand while the dryer is unplugged to see if they are free. Lint & loose pocket items can build up around the fan to slow it down & pull more amps & move less air.
