Try freezing it with ice cubes first till hard, then you should probably be able to chip it away.

Good luck!

Massage a small dab of creamy peanut butter on it and wipe away. WD-40 on a paper towel may be just as good.

Believe it or not, use a fabric softener dryer sheet. It happened to me and I found this tip on another website. Just rub and it works like magic.

I tried the dryer sheets but difficult if whole drum is coated. This worked for me. Put a soaking wet large beach towel in dryer along with 6 wet fabric softener dryer sheets. Run dryer on low heat for 90 minutes. This removed almost all of the gum. I had only a couple of spots to work on after that.
