There are two things you can try to remove the glue left by the tape. I would try WD-40, it is a good and safe solvent for removing this type of mess. I would unplug the washer, make sure you have plenty of ventilation and spray the WD-40 on a rag versus spraying it on the glue. If the glue has hardened in some way, you may have to resort to a less safe solvent like Acetone. This too requires no flames or sparks be present as it is flammable, and a lot of ventilation. Be careful and good luck.

I might need clarification, but household cement or even caulk should work as long as it's allowed to dry fully.

SOURCE: can you glue back a microwave door, if the edges

no, glues are no good in microwaves due to high temperatures, may give off toxic fumes etc. you need new door fittings which isnt easy to fit, take to approved dealer, he will also test for leakage out side the door.

SOURCE: I have a coffee maker

Silicone is out of the question - it will be melted by the heat in the machine. Liquid nails is toxic. crazy glue (cianoacrilate) is not only mildly toxic but is very brittle, the vibrations in the machine would break it in a matter of hours.
You should use polyurethane glue - which is chemically inert and relatively flexible. The most common brand is Gorilla Glue but there are a lot others.

Sliding mirror door. The mirror is falling off.

No frame around the outside edge of the panels? You can buy glue especially designed for adhering mirrors to a backing. This mirror glue will not pull the reflective material off of the back of the mirror. But it sounds to me like the backing panel may have been compromised whereby it is now warped. So you can try the mirror glue but I am optimistic as to its effectiveness. As an option: buy a high quality roll of tape; cloth tapes come in colors; use the tape as a decorative border which at the same time will somewhat secure the mirror to the backing. Or just replace the mirror doors with new ones; probably cost less than $50.

Clothes get lodged between dryer barrel and dryer frame

you need a new rear bearing kit and a new top front felt yes this is something you cand yourself. Frist unplug the dryer, with a stiff putty knife releace the clips on each side of the top at front to pop open the top. next on the inside of the front cover on each side is a philips head screw remove both screws ( I find it easier to use a #2 square head for this ) now remove the front panell diconect the door reach under the dryer drum behind the motor and release the belt by removing the tention on the idler pulley and slipping the belt off the motor shaft (you may be able to do this better fromt the rear of the dryer. there is an access panell remove the two screws and you can see the belt and idler pulley ) now using the belt in one hand and the front of the drum in the other lift up on the rear of the drum ( you are lifting the bearing out of the scocket you will feel it pop out ) now slid the drum out of the cabnet. Now you can repace the bearing put a piece of duct tape over the clip on back center of the dryer ( on the outside ) now remove the two 5/16 screws holding the bearing cup on remove the tape from the clip put ne clip on tape in place set new steel ball in cup i put a dab of the greace supplyed in the kit to hold it in put cup on new bracket. set in place and put screws in you may have to reach around the back to line up the clip teghten screws snug. now in the center of the drum is the bearing on the inside are three philips head screws remove all three some timse you can use a #2 square headi lossen all the screws frist almost completly the remove them one at a time or you will have to hold the bearing with one hand to keep it from spinning. Putting the new bearing on you have to put the screw in one hole hold it with one hand and line the bearing up with the other or get some one to leand you a helping hand makes it alot easier.tighten all three screws good and tight now reinstall dryer drum besure to seat the bearing in the bearing cup again you will feel it pop in put the belt back around the drum. Now on the dryer front you will see the felt support the fron of the drum glides on pull it off just the top felt only with a putty knife clean off as much of the old felt as possable. Apply a genurious amount of the glue provided in the kit to the new felt i always put a good line of glue on the dryer front also press the new felt to the front (be sure if the new felt has plastic glides the overhang should be toward the front not the drum if the new felt does not have these glides you don't have to worrie) put dryer front back on when putting the drum back on the top felt you may need to hold the new felt to keep it from moving. reconect door switch put the two screws back in the front. now go back to the back and putthe belt back on the motor pull the idler to tighten the spring put belt around motor shaft and ease pulley back to belt. Put access cover back on and secure. close the top plug it and test don't let dryer run long just a few seconds I like to let the dryer set 24 hour befor putting back to use to give the glue time to set.

Dark stains on some clothes after drying

I had this same problem. I turned out to be the seal around the drum. You have to remove the drum and put in another seal. Not real hard to do. You can order the seal from sears and I think the glue came with it. Just have to remove the lint vent screws and then the top lifts off. then remove the screws to the front panel. Hold the drum because it will fall. Unhook the belt. Remember how it connects. Then take the drum off and remove the seal and as much leftover glue and fabric. Glue the new seal on and let dry. I did overnight. It should have directions. then replace everything. just make the seal is on the same way you took it off so look at everthing before you remove anything. Once the seal was replaced no more stains.

Frigidaire crown series dryer

The back of the drum has a hub (a flat steel piece with a shaft and ball) which allows the drum to turn. That ball rides in a plastic "cradle". Unfortunately on the crown series...if the ball and cradle are not greased regularly, the plastic wears. This allows the drum to "sag". The front end of the drum is lower than the back. You can confirm this by running your finger around the front of the drum. You'll notice that the top of the drum is almost flush with the body of the dryer and the bottom of the drum is 3/4 of an inch lower that the the body. This allows clothes to slip into the gap at the bottom and then they are spen to the top pof the drum were the lodge between the body and the top of the drum. The turning drum burns the clothing. Replace the plastic piece that the hub rides in.
