Default dryer drum part loose
Model Number: MDG3600BWW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years

I have been hearing a thumping sound when the dryer runs and noticed that one of the "fins" inside the drum is loose. I am thinking that if it gets looser, it will start tearing the clothing. How can this re repaired?

It's a somewhat easy repair,for a lot of people.

You need to remove power from the machine.
Remove the door panel assembly(4 screws 2 on each side with the door open) holding the door hinge assembly,and plastic trim tabs opposite side from hinges.

Grasp the top portion of the front panel and twist outward to unclip from cabinet spring clips,pull top portion out towards you and lift up on panel 1 or 2 inches to unclip from bottom tabs.

You now can access the baffle mountig screws (3 sets of 2 screws,for each baffle from front to back).

Positioning the baffle on the drum at a 4 o'clock position(looking from the front of the unit) will be the easiest position to tighten the screws.

Use caution and don't over tighten the screws, or you will need a new baffle.
