SOURCE: cleaning of the fans
When I called Seville Support I was told that you can NOT open fan to clean and may not get it together if attempted (glad I stopped when I did!).
You need to use air pressure. After using much of a can of compressed air such as you would use on a keyboard and not getting too far, I broke out my seldom used air compressor which kicked out enough dust bunnies as to block out the sun. Hint: be sure to use outdoors. I'm happy to report both units working as good as new.
Don't have an air compressor? Ask your neighbor, he'll need the correct nozzle to 'blow air' (it comes in handy for many tasks).

Andeb, 90% of the time long dry times are caused by blocked vents. If you are sure that this is not the case there are a couple of things to check. First check the sensor; press the more time button and less time button 4 times until 88 shows in the display.(more time,less time, more time, less time). Open the door and you will hear a beep and a see a code. On the inside just below the vent screen is the moisture sensor. Moisten your finger and lay it across the sensor strips covering both. If you hear a beep, the sensor is good. Sometimes they build up with fabric softner and need to be sanded lightly. Another issue might be the burner coils. Remove the bottom panel and check to see that the burner is igniting and remaining lit. Sometimes these coils become week and will not sustain the flame. I will attach a diagram, look at number 13 and 14 on the picture. These are the coils. Catriver..post back.

Is the residue coming from the back or front of the drum? Most dryers are equipped with 2 drum roller supports in the rear under the drum. You may have a drum roller that is going bad and some of the rubber residue is getting past the drum seal. Some dryers are quipped with an additional pair of drum rollers under the front of the drum as well. I would check all the drum rollers to see if they are all in good shape. A definite symptom of a bad drum roller is finding black residue along the outside of the drum where the rollers ride. You will have to open the dryer cabinet to see the outside of the drum. Also, check the rear drum seal to make sure it is not crimped or folded inwards in the drum. The felt seal in the back should should ride evenly all the way around the drum and should not be that visible inside the drum itself. That is, you may see some of the seal, but you shouldn't see part of it folded inside the drum or bits of it tattered or torn. I hope this makes sense to you. Let me know if this helps.

I have the very same model and it worked for 6 years OK. Two days ago the fan stopped turning even tho it still oscillated. I often repair my own equipment and so I opened it to check what was wrong. I found out that it has two motors., one for oscillating and one to turn the blades. In short I discovered that the fan motor is bad, even though there was no odor. Using duct tape or glue is not a solution unless you hear noise from the motor when your fan is on and the oscillating off. I suggest that you return your unit if it is new.. Personally I am going to try to purchase a new one if I can find the model. I hope this helps.
