Look inside the drum at the place where the fin was on the drum. Do you see any screw holes now showing? That will tell you that you need to take the machine all apart and re-fasten the fin on with some screws, unless the holes are stripped out in the fin itself, in which you will need to get a little bigger screws, or buy a new fin. Oh yes, I have been using an epoxy cement in a tube that has 2 chambers, and this may help you. I think it would work here, but will not be strong enough to glue the fin back on. I sort of think it would stand the heat if you used it to help secure the screws into the fin. Honestly, to me the new fin sounds " hard to get". Be blessed.
You have to pop the top so that you can remove the screws holding the fins to the drum. to do so you must first remove the door. Opposite the door hinges is 2 more screws that must be removed. You can next remove the goalpost shaped front panel by popping the clips that hold it on. That reveals the hooks that hold down the top. Once these are removed the top will come up. Then you can remove the screws that hold the fins on and get them pesky coins out.
Access to the outside of the drum requires the removal of the front then the top panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Open the door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.
Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.
The top panel is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.
Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.
Rotate the drum until the screw holes appear at the top of the drum and screw the baffles back into position.
Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.
Note: This guide is for Maytag Sloped-Front Dryers.
1. take off the door hinge screws,
2 take off the two opposite the hinge
3. lift the door up and out
4. graqb the slim side walls on either side of the door way
turn them in and pull the whole panal tword you
5. once you have the door cowel off, you should see two top dogs screwed down with 2 5/16
romove those and the dogs
6. with the top dogs off you should be able to lift the top, like the hood of your car
7. once the top is up , you will have access to the tumbler top and the screws for the fins should be right on top
most maytag dryers have push type clips that hold the top to the front. look between the top and front with a light and find them about 3-4 inches from the outer edges. once you get the top up then there will be screws that hold the drum baffles to the drum. just put a new screw in them and all will be ok. no need to replace them, just use new screws.
