Whirlpool Dryer, What is this?
 
There is a removable plastic almost rubber mounted plate on the inside of the dryer, where the clothes go, that is covered in an almost candle like wax. The word "REPLACE" is under the wax type substance. I scraped the substance off and banged the "mount" against a wall so I could see it, successfully cleaning it in the process, I guess.

What is that and why is it there? And what's that substance?

I'll try and post a pic in a bit.

Thanks.

It's like a long term dryer sheet. You can buy refills once it runs out. I think it's made by bounty...

Uh oh. That means I removed all of the dryer sheet substance, successfully killing that one. Damn! :(

Next time I'll ask first! :thumbup:
