A new pair of teal blue jeans were washed then put in my new dryer. The inside of the washer is stainless, but the dryer is white. It is now teal blue, does anyone know how to get it off?

Run a damp white towel thru it to see if any will come off, to make sure it won't come off on clothing. If none comes off, it will just fade out over time. My dryer drum has been several colors through the years.

Try hairspray. Use in a ventilated room and rinse off

How do I rid my washing machine of dye? After 3 loads, there is still coloring ruining light cotton items.

Run your washer and add 1-2 cups of liquid bleach and let it go through the full cycle. It should get rid of all the color.
