**How do you tighten the drum**

You wouldn't...why do you think yours is loose?...the drum should turn fairly freely and move up and down a bit...and if the supports ( glides, rear bearing ) are worn enough that the drum has shifted = new parts time.

Rear dryer drum bearing assembly, complete

Front upper felt glide pad with nylon glides, adhesive and instructions

Lower felt seal, dryer drum front

The dryer squeaks now and there is a larger gap at the inside top of drum than there is at the bottom. Zippers and small items are getting caught in the gap. Where would you start to look to repair it?

** The dryer squeaks **

The most common place for squeaks to come from on that model is the rear drum bearing and/or drum shaft being worn.

BTW. DON'T put of that repair job if required as if left too long, more (extensive and expensive) damage can be done to parts the dryer.

** there is a larger gap at the inside top of drum than there is at the bottom. **

That is usually caused by worn front drum seal and support bearings. Those could also be the cause of the squeak but be sure to check the rear drum shaft and bearing at time of service.

** Where would you start to look to repair it? **

To service both things, the dryer's front panel will usually need to be removed. In the case of the rear bearing, the drum must be removed as well.

I'm with Dan...rear drum bearing and front support glides are likely worn and should be checked/replaced.

Some take apart and repair helps.
