Washed clothes with gasoline on them. Put into dryer now washer and dryer smell like gasoline. How do I get it out?


To remove gas (petrol) smell from clothing, soak overnight in baby oil (use like you would downy), then wash in baking soda, then wash with normal detergent. It will rid "gas smell" from an entire basket of clothes. Air Dry ONLY
From ehow website:
Step1
Buy a bottle of baby oil. Since gas is an oil based product it is going to take an oil based product to clean the gas out of your clothing. Baby oil is a great product to use as it shouldn't, in most cases, cause further damage to your clothing.
Step2
Soak your clothes with a bit of laundry detergent, water, and a generous portion of baby oil. Also dab some right on the stain before soaking.
Step3
Swash your clothes in the water for a while and let them sit for about five minutes. Transfer the clothes into your washer, once again remembering not to mix them with any other clothing, and let the cycle finish.
Step4
Wash the clothes. If you have a top load washer, let it partially fill up about 1/4 of the way with water. Put some of the baby oil in the wash with the clothes and swash it around a bit. Once the washer cycle begins, add the detergent and let the cycle finish. Make sure that your gas coated clothes are the only clothes you put in the wash.
Step5
Dry your clothing. Make sure you only AIR DRY on a clothes line these clothes. It could take more than one wash to get all the oil out of your clothing. If you use the dryer after the first, or even the second time, you could risk starting a fire in your dryer.
Step6
Check and see if any smell remains in your clothing. If the smell of gas remains on the clothing repeat the wash with baby oil again until the smell is gone.

Water will not go into the collection tray in my condensor dryer. My dryer heats up and tumbles in the right way, but the water will not go out of the drum. Its full of condensation and the clothes are...


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

The machine fills with water during drying cycle and does not fill for the wash cycle


First, did you know that this machine steam dries clothes? The first thing it does on the dry cycle is to wet the clothes which it then heats to dry with condensation. There are better answers regarding this feature on fixya. But assuming that the dry cycle is working as well as it ever does, it appears that your wash cycle is not functioning properly. I would need more info to figure out why it is not filling with water / working at all.

I have a Hotpint Aquarius CTD00 Condenser Tumble Dryer, it has stopped drying the clothes. It occassionally works on the high setting (but makes my clothes smell a bit burned out and shrinking) but it...


it could be blocked up with lint, take out the condenser (silver fin bit) and clean run under a tap if necessary, this is the most important bit of the condenser if this is dirty it reduces the efficiency of the dryer. clean all filters with a vacuum cleaner even remove them and clean where they sit in the machine with the vacuum cleaner.
for the reservoir remove a check the inlet is clean and clear. look inside the machine where this is located and again clean and clear this area, then using something long and thin press open the valve that the reservoir mates with (this can often stick with lint and water residue) be-careful though when opened the valve will **** out water so have a few towels to catch it all. and finally raise the front feet a little this will help the water fall to the reservoir.
if this does not work the internal tank may have fluff and this would be a big job to get to this and clean it you have to strip the drum out which can be a pain.

Burning smell coming from the dryer!


You have a serious clog somewhere in your dryer exhaust ventilation. I would recommend you STOP using the dryer immediately and clean both the interior and all the vent ducting from where it exits the dryer to where it exits the home. the burning is coming from lint build up in and around the heating element and its beginning to smolder. This is a potential fire hazard and may end up causing the heating circuits to fail. The condensation comes from the the inability of the hot air (which is mixed with humidity from your clothing) condensating inside the vent duct. The lint starts to collect and get wet to the point of saturation. Then it begins to cause water to form and leak out of the ducting and on to your floor. You do not want this condensation inside the dryer where the heating circuits are. The following link will provide with some guidance for future reference:

Pay particular attention the paragraph where it discusses proper dryer ventilation. I hope this helps you. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

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.

Condenser Dryer Still Filling Room With Moisture


all dryers produce moisture. thats what hapens when you heat wet cloths up. the dryers job is to remove the moisture to dry. thats how the automai]tic cycles work by deteting the moisture in the exhaust. i will say there is nothing wrong with your dryer. only thing i dont understand is the containers of water?
