Hi. Some kind of fluid is getting inside the dryer tub. It reddish purple and getting worse. Nothing has been added to the clothing when drying. (so wife said)?

I can not find any stain on the clothing. Will it start a fire? Any ideas? What needs fixing or repair? This is an electric dryer.

Thank you for your help. Joe.

My guess is that it is a stain left from fabric softner. Clean it off and stop using fabric softner for a while.

Default Possible causes?

Thank you for your reply.

Fabric softener- Using "All" brand dryer sheets, free and clear. No color in them.

Tide Pods 3 in 1 , a detergent, stain remover, color protector, have some color. Could a pod have made it thru the washer cycle? Then into the dryer where it broke?

I first thought a mouse or salamander was killed in the dryer, and the stain was blood. Dryer is in the basement.

These stains look like a liquid flowed, then was dried by the heat?? Strange.

If a mouse or something else was cooked in the dryer it would smell badly. I still think it has something to do with a pod or a item of clothing that bleeds easily in the laundry process. Do you use hot water all the time ? It might also show up in other clothing or in the washer.

No, it feels cool to the touch.

The water temperature is set at what the Maytag manufacture recommends, so colors do not run.

The wife was also using a "color catcher" sheet in the wash. She now has stopped using it. It is plain, no color.

This dryer problem started with the old Maytag washer. Now using a new Maytag. I feel its not a washer problem? The stain seems to have gotten darker after i first noticed it.

Thank you for you help.

Sure looks like it was a wet liquid? I am thinking a few Tide Pods 3 in 1 's made it into the dryer and broke open.

I don't see any color inside the lint trap hole or the other hole on the left. [IMG][/IMG]

Were any clothes stained the same color?

Have you tried taking a clean white paper towel and putting some 91% or better alcohol on it and trying to wipe away the red? Does anything come off?

I wonder if the color you are seeing is the undercoat of paint and what has happened is your clothes have worn away the outside coat, exposing the undercoat.

I've seen the outside coat worn through before, but usually the undercoat is brown or tan. The areas that are colored are high points where the clothes would make contact the most.

I guess the real test is to pick an area that is still white and try removing some of the outer coating to see if its red underneath.

A clean white paper towel, with alcohol on it, takes some color off. But it doesn't come off easy, baked on i would guess. Seems to be just on the surface.

One or two Tide pods must have made it over to the drier?

Have never noticed the color stain on any clothing. Strange.

Usually you see it stained blue from jeans, that's common to see. Unfortunately it's not blood or anything exciting. You have red/pink/purple towels or other commonly washed items?

Towels are dark blue. The Tide pod, when opened and mixed is blue. But there seems to be 3 compartments, orange, blue and whitish in the pod??

Don't know what the wife may have dried in it. If her clothing was stained, she didn't notice.

I did sent the photo to Maytag , waiting to hear from them.

This may be a mystery that goes unsolved??
