The paddle has come loose inside my dryer how can I get the lid open to get to the back of the drum

take the 2 screws out of the door and take out the other 2 screws opposite the hindge screws,close the door,now grab the sides where you took the screws out of and pull forward and this will remove the front panel,take out the 2 top 5/16 screws one on each side that go through the metal holders,they are the screws closest top the top lid,remember how the holders hook into the top cover and the catch is in the middle of each piece,now lift the top and spin the drum so the baffle(paddle) is on the top and you can get at the screws to tighten them,the top doesn't lift to far up so you might have to lay down and tighten them from the floor,this is how i've done it ,hope this helps

The paddle on the drum has come loose, how do I tighten it?

I just had the same problem with my Atlantic. The paddles are held on by 2 bolts. You will need to remove the 2 screws holding the dryer door in place and the corresponding screws on the other side. Pull off the front panel of the dryer. You will then need to rotate the drum with the baffle at the 5:00 position to gain access to the bolts that are holding it on. Tighten the bolts with nut driver or socket wrench, reassemble, and you should be good to go!!!

Paddle inside dryer came loose how do we tighten

You have to open up the dryer to expose the clothes drum. Most paddles are fastened by two or three 1/4" sheet metal screws. Look for your lost screw in the dryer or replace it with the same. Use a drop or two of lock-tite to keep screws in place. Good time also to clean out all lint which can become a fire hazard, replace the drum belt and redo all of the screws.

Kenmore Elite Dryer with loose paddle- can I glue?

Unplug the dryer.
Remove the lint filter.
Remove the screws at the lint filter opening.
Pop the lid clips on the left and right front corners of the cabinet.
Rotate the drum counterclockwise until a tumble vane(paddle) is at the 12 o'clock position.
Tighten the screws going through the drum.
Repeat this for the other 2 vanes.
Re-assemble the dryer.

Maytag Atlantis MDE6200AYW loose dryer paddle

You might have to remove the back, then the top, but it looks like the paddles are either held on buy a screw from the outside of the drum or they just have clips that lock them to the drum. Once the back is removed, you should be able to see how the top is held on. I think it is screwed or has clips for the back and then you slide it forward to unlock the front tabs. You can follow this if you don;t get a reply
from someone who has worked on this model#. Hope you get it apart ok and fixed by yourself.
