Tape loose on dryer lint guard

The lint shield tape on my lint guard (which I clean each time) is coming out. Everytime I pull out the lint guard, the tape gets caught. Can it be re-glued? With what?

I have a Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care dryer. The lint filter is in front bottom at the door. I was cleaning out big chunks of lint and the tape fell down in. How do I open the front bottom plate to get in and...

if it's a regular whirlpool dryer get a screw driver,stick it into the space where the bottom and top door panel meet,slide the screw driver over a few inches and you should hit the clip that holds the bottom panel in place,push the screw driver in nad lift up a little and pull the panel out as you do this,then do this on the other side,and do this with the dryer unplugged.then remove the lint filter and look at the metal duct that the filter slides into,you'll see two 1/4 inch screws one on each side up top,remove them and pull out the duct,now you can clean it out.

Duet dryer wont start beeps and sensing lights up!

Its likely your thermal fuse is out.

Disconnect the power! Remove the lint filter screen. Remove the two screws from the bottom flange of the toe panel. Pull the toe panel out at the bottom, pull down, and remove the panel. Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two screws from the lint duct and remove the duct.

Then you will see the white thermal fuse on your blower wheel housing. You can jump it with an alligator clip or take the wires off the thermal fuse and use electrical tape to tape them together to see if it comes on. DON'T LEAVE IT JUMPED TO RUN A CYCLE, order a new one.
Here is a the part.

You dont mention the model so I don't know where the lint screen is.
If it's on the top and a pull out type, the lint can be escaping past the seal where the filter meets the top of the dryer.Try replacing it as it's relatively inexpensive

Is there supposed to be a hole on the side of my dryer

Well, though it be simple, you might clean the lint filter everytime you use it. Over time a dryer even with lint filter cleaned will still collect small amounts of lint inside it. You shouldn't worry much but you could call the maytag man to come and take apart the dryer and clean the inside. <;O)

The lint trap on my dryer is moist.

I don't know what's causing the smell, but the moist lint trap and the "takes two cycles" sounds like the exhaust vent is partially blocked.

You can ask the apartment manager to clean it out, or you can take a stab at it yourself with an electrician's fish tape, a plumber's snake, or a dryer-duct cleaning kit. (I picked links from Ace, but you can get them at any hardware or home shop)

Pull the dryer out and detach it from the ductwork. If you're using the fish tape or the drain auger, then you'll want to tie a rag to the end -- washcloth to dishtowel sized at the biggest -- to wipe the lint out of the ductwork. If you've got the duct-cleaning-kit, then use the brush that comes with the kit.

Work your way up and down the ductwork as far in as you can reasonably reach. Chances are good that you'll soon have a huge pile of lint on the floor, and much better airflow through the ductwork.

Hook up the dryer and things should go much better on the next laundry day.

Loss of heat

You hit on the key word, proper air flow. It must be right or the flames shut down. As long as the ground wire is attached to metal, you are o.k. But you should find it, the "male" end nearby. If not, you can attached it with good duct tape that won't come off.
