It said: "We offer our most profound condolences to the victims, those who have lost loved ones, homes, and possessions, and to their friends and families."
It said it was working with the authorities to obtain access to the appliance so that it could assist with the ongoing investigations.
Det Sup Fiona McCormack said she wanted to hear about anyone who was in the tower, whether or not they were meant to be in the building.
She said: "I do not want there to be any victims of this tragedy that we do not know about.
"Our priority is to understand who was in Grenfell Tower. We are not interested in people's reasons for being in Grenfell Tower."
Police said the fire had not been started deliberately.
Some 250 specialist investigators have been deployed to find out what happened.
Det Sup McCormack said police had been in the tower "from top to bottom" adding that next week a lift would be installed to the outside of the building.
But she did say the forensic search "may not be complete until the end of the year."
