Their is no reset button. The fuse is mounted on the heating element. The heating element is mounted on the lower left rear of the cabinet. To access it you must remove the front panel. The fuse has 2 orange wires on it as seen in the video. I have the service manual also:

LG DLG2251W won't heat up

Your post is from 2008 but I am having the same problems with this dryer, same model. This is an LG problem, for crying out loud LG ---- GET IT FIXED. No more LG dryers for me. My $300 Kenmore works like a charm.

The first LG dryer they sent me I thought was a lemon. They came out and replaced the motherboard on the brand new dryer. They came out again and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't dry my clothes, and the second time they gave me another brand new dryer. Same problem with this one and all brand new perfectly clear ducts. Really?????

Google "lg dryer spins but no heat" on youtube - he explains how to get to the sensor and reset it, but still trying to figure out where to find it on my model. I can't believe I have to go through all of this with a $1000 machine!! Never ever again. Avoid LG dryers at all costs. It takes me HOURS to dry a load of laundry. Wanna throw a dry piece of clothing in the dryer for a few minutes to get the wrinkles out? hahaha think again. The heat will never come on even with the manual (non sensor) setting.

Again = AVOID LG DRYERS AT ALL COSTS. It's not worth the headache.

My LG gas dryer has had the thermostat sensors replaced and reset twice already, but after a few loads it stops producing heat. I have taken off the new exhaust outlet as I think the flapper may be...

You will need to disassemble the top panel, the control board, the front panel and the drum assembly to get access to the reset switch. LG has posted that once the button has tripped, it is recommended that it be replaced rather than constantly resetting the button.
Good luck.

Not heating

The reset button needs to be replaced.  Once it has tripped, it loses it's setting and will trip at a much lower temperature.  This is a standard procedure that LG is telling all their techs to do.

No heat in dryer and can't find reset button

Unplug the dryer. Disconnect the vent hose from the wall and clear any lint etc. from the opening. Anything clogged with lint will continue to cause the heating element to "trip" for safety reasons.
Open the top by pressing in on the hidden metal clips on the right and left front (there is a small gap below the top section) Use a putty knife or screw driver to press in on the clips. Lift up like a car hood and then prop it up while you're working. Next open the dryer door. Remove the two screws on either side of the lower opening. Now lift the front up and out, set off to the left side as it is still connected by a wire. Look into the lower right side of the dryer with a flashlight. The reset button is located between the two wires that attach to the outside of the cylindrical drum at the 7 o'clock position. You need to be lying on the floor so you can reach your hand in. It is about halfway into the dryer. Press the button. Now reassemble the dryer before you start it up again. For a gas dryer - let it run and you should hear it "fire" up within a minute and the heating will begin.

LG Gas Stacking Dryer

Check the vent and make sure it is not plugged with lint. Make sure the vent hose is clear. The light is telling you something blocking the airflow. You might not be able to see it easily.
