Try some of the polish remover on the drum surface (a small spot) just to be sure it will not harm the finish. Also on the fins in the drum, some polish removers will soften/damage plastics.
If OK
Use as little polish remover as possible to keep the vapors to a minimum.

Leave the door open overnight or longer

Then run the unit on air only for half an hour or so to remove any residual vapors.

Well, you are left with no other option than to hit and try . To give you a solution, at time you can use nail polish remover or if you want can even go for the deodorants. That is actually, a kind of nail polish remover only. Not only this, even these are used for everything that can't be cleaned very easily, from nail polish to markers. What exactly you need to do is just use spray some deodorant as close to your spot. But make sure you don't burn them by the excess usage. Thereafter just rub it with a handkerchief or napkin. The spot off course won't go away immediately, just insist until they are clean. Now, repeat the same if you need to. Rub more thoroughly around the spot. You might get a feeling of that the marks aren't completely removed but then the repetition of the same would get them completely removed.

Good Luck if you apply it.
