Hi, I too have one of these dryers & have also found a spring, along with alot of fluff, some staples, & remains of the rear seal inside the dryer. must be a manufacturing fault by the looks of things, the spring was bent & twisted & must hold the seal in place. I would say it will need to go to the repair people for replacement. also note the fluff (remains of the seal) had an area where it had burnt from the heating element & could cause a fire.
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.

It is both easy and cheap! I do believe there is a cover on the back of this model hiding the drive belt for the fan. It has iether broken or come off. If it has come off and lint or something of the like was not the cause it is quite possible that it has stretched and will require replacing =)
sounds like the drive belt has stretched, or the auto tension is low.
disconnect power and remove back cover, clean inside around motor resitor block wires, and inspect/ replace faulty components. good luck!
