Find used vehicle auto transmission filter from transmission shop, some auto filters have very nice brass lite screen material. Lots of screen to make plenty.

I wouldn't get too worked up over it. I don't think any of mine have screens on them.

The originals are crimped in I believe. You can solder the new screen on with judicious use of 50-50 solder, using the above mentioned screen sources. You can run the engine without the screen, but if any debris gets in the tank, it will get into the carb. I have used a weller soldering gun to solder new screens onto my pick ups.

An easy way for replacing is getting ahold of Mark Shulaw whose in charge of the Maytag collector club, he has pretty much every part you can think of for a maytag, new or used. The screens already soldered to the piece are like 15 i think plus shipping. So it comes down to ease of someones already made it, or drive around town all day finding the screen and killing more time to do the job.
