Yes but there are 3 screws on the inside you have to remove also.

SOURCE: I have a gas dryer. Dryer heats up but doesn't dry

I got cut short.. and if this is a repeat, please forgive me:
Dryers 101
1. Heat alone does not dry clothes
2. Air alone does not dry clothes.
3. Only dry, heated air passing over and through clothes will dry them...

I recommend the following:
Set the dryer for "Air Dry".
Go outside and check the dryer exhaust.
Confirm that the exhaust is spewing out lots of air.

If it is, then you have a need for a technician to inspect everything - in person.

If it is NOT, the you need to determine the clog - or reason that air is not moving through your dryer, clothes and exhaust system.

ONLY 2 possibilities exist:
1. Fan motor is frozen and needs replacement....or
2. Duct/exhaust is clogged with lint and will not allow air to pass through.

Please check for both, clean/clear/fix as needed.

SOURCE: I am getting black spots (short black or grey

You left something in a pocket that melted in the heat and left those spots and lines. You will need to clean the inside of the drum thoroughly. Without knowing the source of the spot and lines, I can't tell you how to remove them without damaging the clothing.

I fixed mine it by opnening up the gray vent panel in the lower right corner on the rear of the dryer. By spinning the drum, I was able to loom inside with a flashlight and see the loose screws holding the loose baffle in place. I was then able to tighten it.

You have a thermal overload switch that may be bad. It is located under the top of the dryer. Check first the breakers. Turn them off and then back on, then check the wiring in the back of the dryer and then the element itself. It may take 30 minutes to do all of this, but it will save you a lot in the long run.

Maytag electric dryer mod#DE612 series02

U might want to look on the back of the dryer to see if there is a panel to take off. If not the hole top will have to come off. Is the top made on the rest of the dryer or is there a split between it.
