I went to this dryer and discovered that the seam in the stainless steel drum is split open about an inch on one end. That spot makes a thump-thump when it goes over the rollers. Anybody know of a repair method short of a new drum?

Nope, seen this before. You have to replace the whole drum... or junk the dryer.

I've only dealt with one of these and didn't have very good luck. They OK'ed repair, I put a new drum in and less then a year later all the seals on the drum all wore thru, (the new drum was out of round out of the box - no shipping damage on box).

Has anyone else that have replaced one of these drums had any problems with out of round drums/problem getting a good drum shipped without damage?

LG and Samsung are famous for these thin dryer drums that come apart at the seams. It's one reason I try to steer people away from buying foreign brands of appliances.

By the way, this Maytag dryer you speak of here is actually a Samsung dryer with the Maytag nameplate slapped on it. I am glad Whirlpool ended the partnership that Maytag had with Samsung when they bought out Maytag.

you can only lay those drums down on flat side, theyre so flimsy they will get out of round if not.
