The front of my tumbler has some frayed metal pieces on it. Would it be ok if I carefully clean it with a grinder?

Jim C. for Model Number Maytag neptune model #mdg5500aww

ANSWER Hello Jim, You can't get away with grinding on the drum because of the moisture inside the unit. The bare metal will begin to rust and this will stain and ruin clothing. The drum 33001889 will require replacement.
