I had this same problem. The screws fasten to the tub from the outside of the tub. There are screws on the left side of the dryer (doing this from memory) and screws that hold the door on.
First of all, unplug your dryer before working on it. Common sense right?
Next, remove the door. It is easy to take on and off. Unscrew the screws at the hinges. From there you can remove the front panel by lifting up and out.
Next get a flashllight and small/short screwdriver. You will need a short screw driver as there is not much room inside. You can reach in and either tighten or replace the screws.
I found this to be a good time to vacuum out any loose lint that found it's way in the interior of the dryer.
Tighten it and then put the front back on and replace the door. There you go! Hope that helps.

If you are referring to the baffles inside the dryer drum, they are attached with mounting screws along the outside perimeter of the drum. This is a very simple repair that anyone can do without the assistance of a repairman. You will need to lift the top panel of the dryer to access the drum. You may need a second set of hands to hold the baffle in place while you screw it back in place. If you need assistance on how to figure out how to get inside the dryer to access the drum, please post back with a complete MODEL NUMBER. I hope this helps you.
Check inside the drum for loose plastic bars that help tumble the clothes. If you can shake them, open the cabinet top and tighten the bar screws on the outside of the drum. If any appear stripped and don't tighten, remove the bar from the machine and inspect for cracking around the screw holes. If found, replace with new parts. Otherwise, try breaking off matchsticks in the holes and see if the screws will tighten. The top is either held on with screws in the back--then slide the top backwards to remove, or there is a pair of spring clips in the front corners that require a thin putty knife to be slid into each clip and pushed until the clip releases. The back end of the top usually has plastic hinges and won't come entirely free of the cabinet. Hope this helps!
you should be able to Open the top of the Dryer, from front to back, U might need to pry the front corners up with a flat tip screw driver. It should hinge to the back, to expose the Tub... Hope this Helps U...
use a putty knife and about 4 inches inside on each side insert the putty knife between the frount panel and the top and lift up on both sides, the tub will be visable to the screw holes in the tub to reinstall the vanes
