Question about Maytag HYE3658AY Electric Dryer
We cleaned dryer once because there was a dark residue on the inside of dryer which turned whites gray. We cleaned with an oil base soap like Ponds and the film came right off. Also a dark, tacky small spots are around the rubber seal around the door (mostly on the bottom). What would cause this color change inside the dryer? Is it the clothes with a rubber backing, certain synthiques,dyes, types of soaps or is there a filter needing to be cleaned?
Thank you for your time and consideration,
For Maytag HYE3658AY Dryer there is a metal screen on back circular wall inside where tumbler is located. There are two torsion screws that appear to hold metal screen. If you remove these two metal torsion screws will you be able to clean this aluminum screen/filter?
Thank you sea breeze for your possible solution! We found inside the lent filter catch small black oil based pieces. When rubbed between the fingers it leaves an oily film like sot.
Sincerely grey mess

Sounds like an ink pen was left in the clothing during wash and leaked out when put in the dryer

Turn the dryer off and remove any laundry from inside the drum.
Unplug the dryer.
Dampen a paper towel with rubbing alcohol.
Scrub the ink stain with the dampened towel. Repeat, if necessary, with a fresh towel dampened with rubbing alcohol, to remove all the ink.
Wipe the area with a cloth dampened with water, to remove any alcohol residue.
Thanks for choosing Fixya!
