You now have hot melted wax coating EVERYTHING, I bet.

First, unplug your dryer, for safety.
Now take some turpentine or wd-40 and dampen a cloth with it.
Scrub, scrub away.
once it's clean(will take a LOT of elbow grease), you'll want to clean up the solvent.
A wash-cloth, dampened with soapy water, will do a pretty good job here.
Finally, leave the machine OPEN for a good solid day/night.
This lets any fumes remaining from the solvent escape.
this is important, if you don't want to blow up your dryer when you next start it up.

HOW DO I remove red crayon stain and residue from the dryer drum. Gramma did the clothes and forgot to check the pockets


The stain may be permanent, but the first priority is to remove all of the crayon residue. Crayon is wax based, so anything that dissolves or softens wax will help remove it, but be aware that some of these things are flammable [like paint thinner] and somewhat toxic.
First thing I would try is Zep Purple degreaser. It is a concentrated version of the same active ingredient in Fantastic but it isn't flammable. Use rubber gloves and a non scratch scrub sponge.

Try diluting it about 2 parts water to one of the concentrate at first, if that doesn't work try adding a little more concentrate. Full strength may take the shiny finish off of you dryer drum.
You probably want to use a face mask while using it; get one for paint odors or organic vapors.

You should take off the vent hose and try to get as much of the crayon out of the vent passageways.
If the degreaser doesn't work try orange oil cleaner

If the orange oil cleaner doesn't work, odorless paint thinner may, but it will have to dry first and you will have to make sure you have all fumes out of the dryer before using it. Put a fan on the open dryer for 8 or more hours.
After you get it as clean as you can, run a few loads of things that won't matter like work clothes or jeans.

FGR231ASY GAS DRYER BURNS FLEESE MATERIAL CLOTHING WHY


Hello my name is George,
I was wondering if the dryer was just burning fleece or all of your clothes. Fleece is a very delicate material, and should be dried on low temp or delicate depending on your drier. Driers are thermally protected inside with various parts. If the drier is getting to hot one of these would have caused the drier to stop heating. If the drier is burning all the clothes and not just the fleece I would recommend having a technician come out and check it as this could be a hazard for you and your family.

A crayon was left in pocket of clothes. the garment was washed and dried in the dryer and thus we have crayon dye on the clothes that we can`t get out.


Hi and thank you for using fixya:

I suggest that in order to get the crayon stain out you use kaboom stain remover. It is very strong and works for me on stains, you can get it at your local supermarket.

Thanks

How to clean black marks left in dryer from shoes


I had used a little nail polish remover on the marks when this happen. Then I wiped it out with a cloth after I was through doing the dishes ( had dish detergent on it) and a rinse cloth and dried. I then always let the shoes/boots air dry or you could put them in a pillow case to dry. Good Luck!
(You should have seen the mess I had with a melted blue crayon one day!) Got that out too-but it took me a while.

Electric drier takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry one normal size load


Have you tried cleaning the actual inside of the drier?
When you use drier sheets the wax on the sheets melts onto your clothes and makes them soft, but the wax often gets stuck in the holes of the drier making it incapable of drying the clothes in one load. Try scrubbing the inside of your drier with some hot water.

Sounds like drive belt or drum supports, if the drier is gas I would check it out, could cause a fire, if it is electric still check to make sure it is not rubbing on the electric heat element, or it could be full of lint which is catching fire during normal operation and melting or burning the belt or drum supports.
