Yes,but you will have to find screws that fit the holes in the back of the paddles and a washer to fit the screws
Access the outside of the drum by lifting the top Panel.
if this was helpful please rate me.

Why is my Tumble Drier keeps beeping without stopping a few minutes into the drying program?


It sounds like the carbon brushes are probably worn down - they ride on the drum (in the top ) and determine the amount of moisture left in the clothes for drying - they connect to the drum and the metal bar inside the dryer - A wet clothing item conducts between the two giving the dryer an idea of how much moisture is left in the load - equal to how much time / heat is needed to dry load as required. These brushes wear out and need to be replaced over time

Inside the drum, there are three "panels" attached to to the wall of the drum. I guess they are used to tumble the clothes so the heat is evenly exchanged? One of the panels broke off. ...


It wont hurt anything to use it like that. The screws probably fell outside the drum when they came loose. You can look at the other two to see how they are fastened if you want to put it back on.

Mayteg model DE313 clothes dryer that stopped drying clothes.


That is a very accurate assessment of the problem. Check the element for continuity between its two contacts. If there is none, replace it. If there is, look for a fuse on the side with two wires going to it. Test it for continuity. If there is none, replace it.

I have a Kenmore 70 Series gas dryer, model 76712691. The dryer has 3 plastic ''tumblers'' inside the dryer, to help the clothes tumble. Two of the tumblers have fallen off inside, leaving big holes inside...


Pull the dryer away from the wall, there is no bottom on the dryer, so the screws should be on the floor.
You can then pop the lid up from the front and fold it back. When you do, you will see the drum. Roll the drum around until you see the holes and reattach the tumblers.
You can also access the drum from below. Tip the dryer on its back and you can see the drum from the bottom.
Good luck.
Regards,
