I AM IN THE PROCESS OF REPLACING THE DRUM ALSO BECAUSE OF IT BEING BROKEN RIGHT WHERE THE GROOVE IS IN THE BACK OF THE DRUM THAT RIDES ON THE ROLLERS.
HERE IS THE WAY I AM APPROACHING IT: THE OLD DRUM IS OUT - NOW I AM INSPECTING THE DRUM SEALS AND ROLLERS - SINCE THE OLD DRUM IS ALREADY OUT YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF ALOT OF HEADACHES BY REPLACING THE DRUM ROLLERS, FRONT AND REAR DRUM SEALS, AND THE BELT ALONG WITH THE NEW DRUM. I WOULD ALSO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPEN SPACE TO GIVE THE DRYER A GOOD CLEANING AND VACCUUM PRIOR TO THE NEW DRUM INSTALLATION. BE SURE NOT TO FOLD THE REAR SEAL OF THE DRUM DURING RE-INSTALLATION. TAKE YOUR TIME AND DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING AS YOU GO MAKING SURE THE DRUM RIDES NICE AND SMOOTH ON THE ROLLERS AND THE SEALS ARE FLAT ALL THE WAY AROUND. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU TO NOT HAVE ANY FURTHER PROBLEMS FOLLOWING YOUR NEW DRUM INSTALLATION.

SOURCE: is there something else i
On older maytag dryer's the felt seal wasa seperate part and not part of the drum..the problem is i do not know if the drum on the newer and older dryers is the same diameter they look similar in size but if it isn't exactly right may leave a gap where the clothes will get caught in...however the part number for that seperate felt seal is 314820
