Unplug the dryer, remove the door hinge screws that go into the cabinet and the two screws on the opposite side of the door opening, then the front panel can be removedby starting at the top. Once the front is off, there are two screws, one to each side that hold the top on, remove these and raise the top. You can rotate the drum by hand and the baffles are held on by the screws on the outside of the drum. Reassemble in reverse order.

With the front off look up in the top left and right corners for some screws that hold the top of the dryer to the side panels. Depending on your model, there can be different styles. The old maytags used 3/8 in screws up inside the corners and the newer models had 5/16 screws right up front. Once you get the front of the top loose you will be able to lift it like the hood on a car to gain access to the drum. Rotate the drum by hand to put your loose fin at the top and tighten up your screws. Sometimes the screws will round out the holes on the drum too much and you may want to put a washer on the screw to secure it better. Good luck!
First remove door. Remove the screws holding the front panel on (inside door recess), pull panle from top down and remove and set aside. Remove the 2 5/16 screws hold top down located at left and right sides. Lift top up for easy access.
I had the same problem but it's the FRONT Panel you need to remove. Before you start, unplug the thing first. BTW I did the whole proceedure in 10 minutes using an electric screwdiver / philips bit and a socket set with an 8mm socket with my leg in a cast. You can do better, I'm confident!
Two 8mm hex head bolts hold each fin on the drum. They can be tightened. You need to open the dryer front since they bolt from the outside of the drum. To open the dryer front you first take the door off by removing the two philips head screws, then slightly lift the door and pull toward you (the door hinges have little hooks on the end that inserts into the slots (this little design keeps the door from falling off during removal and install-nice). Then remove the two philips screws on the other side of the door opening (opposite the door hinges). These screws hold two plastic brackets (be sure to see how they are aligned before you remove them so you know how they go back on.
Now the front frame panel looks like an "H" . Grab the top two arms of the 'H" and give a quick ****. The top arms of the 'H" will come loose. The bottom part is held by a couple of clips, just pull up and the front panel comes off.
You will be able to spin the drum until the hex bolts for the fin(s) in question are visable / reachable from the right side (just above the heater unit-hope you unplugged the dryer earlier). I tightened it using an 8 mm socket.
Now reverse your steps: put the front panel back on the bottom clips and snap the top "H" arms back in place. Reinstall the plastic clips / screws and then put the door back on.
Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.
if i remember right ..remove washer top remove hose or pug in top of outer tub rotate basket until fin is at top i believe you can acess screw through hole..of course i have been known to remember wrong and apologize if i have this time let me know
Depends on the model. The easiest one's you will be able to insert a small flat head screw driver between the front and the top panel and push on the green clips (a flashlight makes a world of difference here). With this style you just need to install a screw back in the loose fin that keeps it tight. The slightly more difficult style, you have to remove the 2 phillips screws from the door hinges and the 2 screws straight across from them. This will let you get your front panel off (remove by twisting the tops of the panel slightly and pulling) There will be 2 5/16" screws to remove that hold the top down. Same procedure, install screw in the fins to keep them tight. How do I tell which style I have you ask? Simple. If the front panel goes all of the way across at the top, it's the first solution. If the front panel goes about 2 " then the door, then another 2", it's the later plan.Message me back if you are still having trouble.
