Question about Dryers
Gold glossy spray paint overspray (lots) on the top of a white clothes dryer. How do I remove it?
Use soap and water to remove any paint rubbing alcohol or residue. For a final clean up, dip a clean rag or paper towel in soapy water.

You could try nail polish remover on a old (but clean) cloth/rag.
If it's works OK, you might want to dash-out & buy some really cheap nail polish remover, rather than waste the good stuff on this job.??
If there's really a lot of overspray, then buying a litre of proper paint thinners from a commercial paint store would make more sense.
(Note to self: Get newspapers or old bedsheets next time, to cover/mask everything I don't want painting.!!!)
Best of luck.

SOURCE: Spraying troubles
Off hand I would say that you have the wrong spray tip for the paint that you are spraying or that the tip is worn. Another thing that it could be is the little piece of rubber behind the tip is worn or missing. My first suggestion is check the tip size with the recomendations of the paint that you are spraying (You will find this on any specification sheet from the paint manufacturer.. If the size is correct replace the tip. A new gasket comes with a new tip. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ink in the dryer
Rubbing alcohol will work to remove most of it if you use alot of elbow grease.
What I found worked the best and quickest was a Mr Clean Magic Eraser wetted acetone nail polish remover. Leave the dryer door open to let it air dry, then put a couple of white towels soaked in bleach water and run the dryer on a non-heat cycle to remove any remaining smudges.
To be paranoid, I then ran the same towels through the washer and dryed them on high heat to make sure there was no ink I missed that might ruin any further clothes.

The choice is yours. Money often motivates these decisions. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the top panel price is roughly $108 to $160 depending on the color you need. White or Bisquit is the cheapest, while Pewter is the most expensive. If you wish to replace it, appliancepartspros.com carries it for the cheapest price.
If you wish to paint it, remove the panel from the dryer first by locating and removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. This will allow you to work on it in a more convenient location and avoid any overspray from paint on your appliance. Make sure you clean the surface throughly to remove anything that may have caused the paint to bubble and peel in the first place (Ospho is commonly used to clean metal surfaces in preparation for painting - clean AFTER you sand). I would sand with a fine grit sand paper or emery cloth to ensure you don't leave any surface scratches. Prime the entire panel to provide a good surface for the new paint to adhere to. Once the primer is dry, apply a couple of good coats of appliance paint. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Did you receive any suggestions for this? My husband just brought home a used Whirlpool dryer that has this rust on top also.
