There's no easy way of getting something out of between the tubs without removing the rubber door seal from the tub. It's a pain in the rear to get it to go back on too, because of the retaining spring that holds it in place. Are you sure the screw is between the tubs and not stuck behind one of the was tub fins? Most small items like screws will eventually find their way into the drain line and get caught in the drain pump strainer. Since you can't see the screw, it may actually be trapped behind one of the fins. One way of knowing is to roll the inner basket with one hand and listen. If you hear something rattling around it's somewhere in or on the inner tub. The outer tub (or shell) does not move. You can also look through the inner tub holes with a flashlight while turning it slowly to see if you can see anything between the wash tub and shell. Usually, water and gravity will force anything lying in the tub shell into the drain line. Let me know if this helps you.

Removed the top and Front reinstalled the counter balance. the rubber gasket has a 1" tear in it which I patched with a rubber tire patch for now. Two of the locking nuts for the leveling of the machine were loose it went out of level causing the machine to rock and probably caused the counter balance to loosen up. My daughters come in from collage and over load it on weekends which adds to the machines demise. All have been warned.

pull them away from the wall and see if you have an access panel in the rear of the dryer. If you do remove it and undo the belt so that you can freely sway the drum in either direction. it may re-align the holes for you to replace the screws if not you'll have to open the dryer possibly by prying the top up and undoind the screws that hold the front panel to the cabinet. from there you should be able to move the drum about to get the scres back in but f you do get it opened take the time to clean it out. Make sure you undo door switch wires before removing front panel.
