To get inside your dryer to tighten down the screws going into the baffle, start by pulling the dryer forward and unplugging it. Next, open the dryer door and there are 2 screws going through the door hinge into the front panel. Remove these 2 screws and there are 2 more screws on the opposite side of the door way. Remove these screws as well. The front panel will then unclip at the top if you just pull forward on the upper right and left corners of the front panel. Now the front panel will hinge down and forward. After that, unscrew the bolts in the upper right and left corner and the top panel will hinge up and backwards. you can just reach into the drum and rotate it so you can access the correct baffle to tighten the screw through the top.
