I had the same problem, one of the baffles had lost a screw and the other side was very loose. Using the instructions here, I took out the four screws inside the door. Two hold the hinges of the door on and two are on the opposite side and hold two small plastic parts on. Once these are removed, pop the front panel off from the top, it hinges down and lifts off. You can now see under the drum and rotate the drum around to tighten the screws that hold on the baffles. Replace the front panel, screw in the four screws and you're done! Thanks to this website and other responses, I was able to fix it myself without an expensive repair call!!
The two screws that hold the door door hinges and the two on the opposite side of the door opening hold the front panel in place. Once you remove the door and the other two screws the front panel should swing down to access the screws that hold down the top. But you may be able to reach the baffle screws once the front cover is removed.

You are probably referring to the drum baffles. The baffles securing screws can be retightened by raising the top which requires the removal of the front panel. Click on the link below for the detailed steps.
the change gets caught in the three baffles that are attached to the drum.unplug the dryer,open the door and remove the two screws that hold the in place,remove the door,then remove the other two screws opposite the door screws and pull the front panel off.rotate the drum so one of the baffles are down in the right hand corner so you can get at the screws that hold the baffles onto the drum.try loosening the screws but you might have to remove the baffles to get to the change.let me know how you make out
On this model you will see 4 phillips screws in the recessed area when the door is open. 2 on each side. Take the 2 on the right out and then the 2 holding the hinges to the cabinet. Remove the door and then pull the front panel off by pulling toward you. Then you will see 2 screws holding the top down. 1 on each side near the top. Remove these and the top will lift back resting against the wall. From here you can get to the baffles. Good luck and thanks, Rick
To tighten the drum baffles, all you have to do is UNPLUG the dryer and lift the top panel. The bolts that hold the baffles in place are located on the outside perimeter of the drum. There's usually a minimum of two per baffle. If you cannot figure out how to lift the top panel, post back with your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening or back of the operator console) so that I may be able to assist you further. I hope this helps you.
The screws that hold the drum baffles in place are located along the outside of the drum. Usually, you need to lift the dryer top in order to access them, and they can be tightened without removing any components. However, all dryers are not contructed the same and access to the drum can vary. If you would please post a brand name and model number it would help in being able to determine exactly how your dryer is configured.
Remove the door and the plastic pieces on the opposite side. Take the front panel off. There will be one metal bracket on each side holding the top panel down. Remove those brackets and lift the top. Turn the drum where the loose baffle is up top and tighten loose screws or replace missing ones.
I had the same problem and just fixed it. First, open the door and remove four screws, two are holding the door on and the other two are in the same place on the opposite side. Lift the door up and pull it out to remove it. Set it aside. Pull the front panel down. Admire all of the **** that has collected inside the dryer. Next, there are two dark colored metal clips holding the top down on the upper right and left. Remove the hex head screws holding these on. Wiggle them to release them and take them out. Now the lid will lift to reach the screws holding the fins on. Tighten as necessary. Now would be a good time to get the shopvac and clean the lint and junk out of the dryer. Reverse the process to put it back together. Problem solved!
There may be change rolling around in it.
Remove the top. Take the screws out of the drum baffles and remove the coins from inside the dryer drum baffles.
When replacing them, tighten them well to help prevent coins from getting in there.
