I referenced the wrong page on "B". It is 6871EC1061C it seems - this is from the service manual:

Hmmm.

6871EC1061C has been discontinued.

Best thing is to call LG Parts Research---I'll post on Monday evening.

It's still worth looking into...

A new/revised Main Board may have been introduced as a replacement---just not shown on LGs website yet (if ever).

The part number is correct (6871EC1061C) and is No Longer Available.

I'd contact fixyourboard.com

Fast turn around time.

 I have a similar question with my LG DLG0332 dryer
the dryer will not heat, if I reset the red reset button it works fine, dry ignites and stay on ,  then the next time we go to use it I have the reset the button again .

Is the fix to just change the thermostat with the red button

Theoretically, they want any reset able TCO replaced if it even opens ONCE. Sounds like venting may be an issue here. The flame may not be pulled through the burning chamber and rolling up on to the TCO, and it is doing its job. :welcome:

I've been having a problem with my DLG033W dryer, and this is probably the only thread on the internet I could find help on.

--Does not heat at all. No glow from the igniter.
--Don't get any voltage from the top plug on the gas assembly. Replaced main board with a used board I found on eBay, "certified working." Still don't get any voltage from the top plug, but I forgot to unplug the dryer when plugging it back in and it shocked the hell out of me.
--Igniter has continuity.
--Flame sensor has continuity.

When I first installed it, it dried fine for maybe a week, with heat. Now it has no heat. Another thing very much worth mentioning, is most of the time we start it, the dryer will buzz loudly. We have to spin the drum a bit and start it again before it will move.
I don't understand why the motor would have anything to do with heating, but I see John mentioned the centrifugal switch on the motor could be an issue.

Yes---based on your additional posts---it's clear that the gas burner is only functioning initially but not continually (intermittent).

This usually caused by the following (in most likely order):

1) Failing MAIN BOARD (6871EC1016C) The gas valve *relay* fails after one or two burner cycles.

2) Failing GAS VALVE ASSY (5221EL2002A) Valve 1 or Valve 2 fails after one or two burner cycles.

3) FLAME SENSOR (6501EL3001A) Erratic operation.

4) CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH on the MOTOR (4681EL1008A) Erratic operation.
