You can first check the ignitor/glo coil and high-limit thermostat on the burner tube for continuity,then the thermal fuse,cycling switch for continuity on the blower housing,and possibly the gas valve coils on the gas valve,unfortunately if its the gas valve coils you need to replace the whole gas valve because you can't buy just these 2 coils that mount on the valve,also the control board is a possibility,if you also need some PDF exploded views and diagnosing charts theres a web site to go to it is;, scroll down to L.G. and open it and go to dryers and download your model#...........good luck

I have an LG dryer model DLG8388WM and it doesn't heat up. From looking at this website it seams to be the coil attached to the gas valve. Is this easy to install?

This is a very common problem amongst gas dryers and although some dryers vary, the coils (usually 2) are easily accessible near the front of the machine behind the bottom panel. They are inexspensive and certainly worth trying prior to calling out a repairman. Be sure to unplug the machine when installing the coils. They are generally held down by 1 bracket on the top by 1 or 2 screws and have a plug on each.

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.

Dryer runs but there is no heat. Clothes spin but aren't drying. Any help is much appreciated!

On a gas dryer that will not heat, the first thing to check is the ignitor. The ignitor should heat up and glow orange if it is working. If not, the ignitor is defective. The next thing to check are the gas valve coils. These are electrical solenoids that are located just above the gas valves. When energized, they open the gas valves and allow the gas to flow to the burner and be ignited. If everything looks like it is operating well, but the dryer is still not heating/drying properly, the next thing that I would consider would be a faulty high limit thermostat. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.
