Here are three ways to make surepower is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is pluggedin.

Dryer willnot heat

heating eliment is most likely burned out. Better off getting new dryer. But if that is not an option then call a repair person that can replace the heating element.

Dryer won't shut off. Heats fine. Timer advances on air dry only. Vent is not clogged. Can't find moisture sensor replacement part.

https://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts/a8b104d87061/Model-CYE2000AYW-Magic-Chef-Dryer-Parts

The dryer requires cycling of the heat to advance thhe timer on auto dry cycle. see ,link provided parts and repair guidance. Always remove from power supply first.

I just moved and my LG dryer does not heat up.

Your ignitor (glow bar) got broken during the move. They are more fragile than your grandmother's fine china
