SOURCE: Inner 'glass' of door
The inner glass can and should be replaced. It protects the metal mesh screen from getting dirty, which can cause it to be damaged and allow microwave leakage.

SOURCE: how to replace inner oven door
Generally, the job is just alot of screws. Depending on the model, most screws are found either inside the door or on the lower edge. Some models...mostly GEs... have a way of removing the door from the hinge. Doors are heavy and are usually spring counterweighted.
Is it an easy job? Depends...if you're mechanically inclined it is straight forward. You will need an assistant as these doors do come apart and they are heavy. Often, the manufacturer or a parts house has an exploded diagram to let you see what you're facing.
Oh, and use a good quality screw driver and apply pressure when turning out screws. You don't want to ruin the heads!

you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo)
and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I just took my oven door off and took it apart to clean the glass inside. I don't have a maytag but they probably all work alike. Just open the door like you are going to broil something and just lift it up. It should slide right off. Shouldn't have to unscrew anything. Hope this helps. Arlene
