I noticed that the "fins" inside the dryer drum seem to be accumulating a lot of pet hair in little balls. It seems like there is a very small space between each of the "fins" and the drum wall. Can I use something to pop those fins off to clean out the hair? There aren't any screws holding them onto the dryer drum as far as I can tell.

Lots of things.
Here are a few.
If the belt drives the drum, and the drum is not turning freely, perhaps it is loading the motor with too much resistance and the motor is overheating and shutting off.
If there is a bad ground wire anywhere in the system., perhaps the motor is not being grounded properly, and is having an electrical "melt down".
If the dryer is overheating because of lint accumulation inside the pipes of the dryer, perhaps the extra heat is shutting the motor down.
If the dryer is overloaded with clothes or whatever, perhaps the pull is too much for the motor and it overheats.
God bless your efforts.
You obviously have a pet and it's good to see your machine is doing it's job. The only reason you could lose suction while collecting pet hair is due to the pet hair being a solid mass and air not been able to flow through the filters.( must be a lot of hair). Suction loss is only when the particles passing through your machine are dense therefore it will reduce suction and airflow . Very common on vacuum cleaners. Do not worry too much . Also check to see if you have Amy cracks in the seal between the drum and the vacuum cleaner itself
Open and clean what? If this is a mini split you are referring to you can spray a gentle detergent on the coil.( the piece behind the air filter) Take a shopvac outside where the drain line goes out and vacuum for 10 or 15 minutes. Create a good seal for good suction. Be sure to rinse coil with water as well to prevent bubbles entering any electrical devices. Good luck.
It may just be that on first usage of furnace for the year that you have a accumulation of dust,lint,hair or pet hair if you have pets on the top of furnace heat exchanger and burners. It should burn off pretty quickly. If it doesn't I would have someone check for gas leaks or carbonmonoxide leaks. Always better to be safe. I hope this helps you Thanks
Make sure the dryer's vent hose is in good condition and that the dryer is actually venting to the outside. Check the lint filter in the dryer for proper fit to the cabinet and is cleaned each time of use. Check outside near the vent shutter to see if a house air-exchange-intake is near this shutter. Do the dust balls show up only when the dryer is run? If you can't solve this problem, contact the builder or real estate agent to get this resolved.
Try spinning it by hand with no belt. If it is tight, dismantle the bearings at the end and clean out the hair . If it is loose then the problem is likely that your belt has stretched, Buy 2 genuine belts and keep a spare on hand. For best cleaning results , replace every 3- 4 months ( broken or not) , if you have a lot of pet hair
if the dings are inside the drum and they look like someone took a hammer and hit the inside of the drum then it's what you put in it but if the dings are comming enward twards you then there's something hitting it from outside the drum. and if that be the case call the store were you got it and have someone come out that is if it has a warnnity and if the dings go out twards the dryer then contact the person who sold you the dyer max balls and tell them you won't payed for a new dryer you may have to take them to court and then again you will have to prove that the balls did it
I have a top loading Kenmore High capacity dryer that is over 10 years old, it has been working very well, unfortunately when cleaning the lint filter my wife dropped a piece of paper down the lint duct hole. The paper evidently fell to the bottom of the lint duct. I am unable to reach the paper from the top of the dryer where the lint filter is inserted.The dryer now makes a grinding type noise when it is turned on. Can you tell me how to reach the paper and remove it
