At the bottom of the front panel you have two screws, remove those and swing out at bottom and drop off

The bar things inside the dryer drum (there are three of them) one has come almost all the way off. and one is loose. looks like its screwed from the other side.. cant figure out how to get inside. it...

Unplug the dryer. Open the door and remove a total of 4 screws, 2 on each side of the door opening. Two screws each hold a clip in place and the other two hold the dorr hinges. When you remove the screws on the door hinge, it shouldn't fall off, but be prepared for it to do just that. The door should come off by lifting the hinges upward and pulling the door away. The remaining part of the front panel is held on by 2 clips located toward the top sides of the u-shaped front panel. Pull the panel forward to release the clips and lift the panel upward to clear the two tabs and slots on the bottom. On each side of the cabinet, there is a blackish colored metal bracket that holds the top in place. Remove the fasteners that holds these brackets and remove the brackets by sliding them upward and away. The top should now lift up. You now have access to the fasteners that hold the baffles onto the drum. If , for some reason, you should want to remove the baffles, carefully note the different sizes of the baffles and what order they came off.

Here is the parts list for the drum of your dryer:

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Inside the dryer there are 3 bars that stick out to help tumble the clothes. One of them has come loose and I'm not sure how to tighten it. It appears to be attached with screws that come thru the drum...

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!

Fin on gas dryer loose.

The model number is generally inside the door or door jamb area. The top must be removed to access the drum to tighten the screws to the fin

My Maytag gas dryer (MDG3000AWW) is making a terric noise. Checked the belt, rollers, motor and blower. All seem well. The drum however does not rotate smothely, Appears warped. Is this possible?

A warped drum is possible, but not likely. Check the bearing at the rear of the drum to see if it is breaking loose from the drum. If still under warranty, take advantage. If not, and the bearing IS breaking loose, the mount can probably be welded. If the drum interior is enameled finish, the damage can be repaired with epoxy. If the drum is stainless steel, the weld area can be re-polished to original. Hope this helps!

Maytag LDE313 Dryer drum won't start

Sure sounds like a winding problem. Initially when you press start and hear the dragging of the motor sound, this is the start winding going out. Part number is 303358 and your cost is around 120.00 in new or about 60 in good quality used. Good Luck in your decision. If I can help further, I am here...

Waiting to hear from you,

Maytag dryer does not turn around inside.

Hello, try reaching in the drum, grabbing ahold of one of the baffles. The drum should have some resistance when trying to turn it, If the drum turns very easily, than your belt is either broken or has fallen off. Provide a model # and I can tell you how to open the front panel. Thanks Dave

My dryer squeeks when running

Hi, I've had a similar problem (I think) on my MDG7400 dryer. There was a cyclical squeak, metal against metal. It turned out to be the screw that holds the drum paddle to the drum. It had worked itself loose and was scraping against the inside wall of the dryer. Remove the front door lift the top, and tighten 'er up. Hope that helps.

My Maytag dryer is rumbling when it starts up. But, it is drying OK.

Check for loose 'tumblers' inside the drum. I have heard of some cases of these coming loose and causing knocking in the drum.
