If you dont have to have the screws, They are ok in the dryer. They either are resting in the bottom of the air duct or have blown out your exhaust vent. They probably blew out. Either way it wont hurt anything. And if you do need the screws you will probably have to buy new ones cause they blew out your exhaust.

My kenmore dryer wont start up, makes a humming noise and drum will onlt turn clockwise when trying manully

You likely have a broken belt. A new one should fix you up. If you take it apart to change the belt, please be certain you clean the lint out of every part of the machine. It builds up inside it where you cannot reach without taking the whole thing apart.
Be blessed.

Dropped a clothes pin down the shoot of the dryer filter vent and now it made a noise when I turned the dryer on, turned it off.

hello. It probably ended up right in the blower wheel. It will make a heckuva racket when things get caught in there. Like a straw in a fan. I will post a few links that will help you recover the problem. Here is a parts diagram. You can see where things can fall down and land right in the blower wheel. This will help you disassemble the dryer and get it out.

hope that helps you. Thanks for your time.
