Most things that can remove ink can cause damage to the glaze finish on the dryer tub. Go ahead and use a specialty product that will remove the ink, but use it sparingly and dab it onto a rag.
Once the ink has been removed to your satisfaction, take a moderately damp cloth with a mild detergent (dish soap like dawn or ajax will work.) Wash the area where the ink remover was in contact with the tub. (you may want to rotate the tub manually so the spot is at the bottom of the machine)
After washing the area, then dry it with a towel.
If you still smell the odor from the ink remover then, allow the dryer door to be open for about an hour or so to allow any combustable vapors that may still remain to air out before using the dryer again. Or you can run the dryer without heat in "Air Dry" for about 30 min until you cannot smell the vapors in the exhaust anymore.
Hope this helps

Reset lock out due to fvd


You can reset some models.... depending on gas control valve and FVIR design.
Some newer models you replace the sensor located on outside of tank.

No heat


Check the vent hose from the lint screen all the way to the outside flapper many calls I get of no heat on dryers is from people putting stockings over the vent in the winter and then back to the vent in the summer but what happens is that they don't clean it every week or more and it now builds up in the dryer blower and when hooked back up the the vent it blows a big glob of it and it then blockes the vent, this is also very dangerous because dryer lint is very flamable. Be sure to disconect power before cleaning the hose and blower in the dryer.
