Roommate washed dieselsoaked clothes couple weeks ago. Just did 2 loads (clothes &bedding) before realizing the smell. How toxic are the fumes?

In brief: No health risk

Repeated or continue expousre to diesel fumes could cause health problems after a few months or year, but a brief exposure like this won't do anything bad.
Just open the windows, let the place air out, and don't worry about it.
