How to Clean the Drum on your Whirlpool Dryer

Cleaning the dryer drum:

  1. Use a mild hand dish detergent mixed at a low concentration with very warm water and rub with a soft cloth.
  2. Rinse well with a wet sponge or towel.
  3. Tumble a load of clean clothes or towels to dry the drum OR Use a microfiber cloth and hot water in a spray bottle to clean the drum and a second microfiber towel to dry.

NOTE: Garments that contain unstable dyes, such as denim blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the rear of the dryer interior. These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will not stain future loads of clothes. Dry, unstable dye items inside out to avoid transfer of dye.
