Question about Maytag MDG7600AW Gas Dryer
Maytag atlantis intellidryer. When on the dryer makes a scraping sound. also makes same sound when i turn the drum by hand. it looks like there is a soft cloth(ish) seal between the drum and the back metal plate. half this cloth seal has worn out. i suspect this is causing the sound. Is it the "seal tumbler" part? I also do not know how to get to this to replace it. It looks like i have to take apart the drum I am not sure if I can get at this from the back of the unit

This repair is made through the front of the dryer by removing 2 phillips head screws located approx. 2" off the floor on each side. http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_18.asp, pull the front panel toward you from the bottom to disengage the front clips from the top panel, and set to the side,(wires can remain attached).
Remove the 4 - 5/16" screws from the front bulkhead. pull the bulkkhead toward you to disengage from the tumbler.
Remove the drum belt- see diagram, click link, http://www.repairclinic.com/0079.asp#DiagramE
Now you can remove the old seal and install the new one. To order new part, click the link below.

Good information in the response and looks like a good place for parts, but I think the instructions for removing the front/top are for a slightly different model.
I have this dryer and just recently had to get into it to put new a new baffle in the drum. So I wanted to lift the top.
This dryer doesn't have a flat front. The top of the front slopes back and the door kind of wraps over the top.
If you open the door, you will see two screws on each side, two hold the hinges for the door and two corresponding ones on the other side. Remove these and pop off the door. It has small tabs that go into the front.
You should now be able to tilt the front foward from the top. There is a clip on each side, but it comes open fairly easily. You can then lift the front off the two clips on the bottom.
If you don't need to lift the top, you can probably stop here.
The top is help by a clip on each side of the front. Take out the screws and twist the clips to remove them so you don't lose them. The top should now lift up and pivot on the plastic hinges in the back. There is a plastic clip near the front on each side of the top, but they should come loose pretty easily.
