Hi,

After having cleaned the drain hole (blocked by ice)of myMaytag MSD2756DEW, I accidentally dropped the screw which hold the shield into it. Do I have to take it out or I can just leave it there? How to get it out ?

Thanks

Hi,

**Do I have to take it out**

Probably.

**or I can just leave it there?**

Probably not a good idea.

**How to get it out ?**

Depends on where it ended up...maybe a magnet can get it from the top....or use something like compressed air to blow the screw through the line and out the other side....or try removing the hose behind the cardboard cover on the back to see if you can fish out the screw.
