Learn how your appliance is supposed to operate so you can determine if it is malfunctioning.
Clothes will dry much faster if they are tumbled in a drum. The tumbling action allows air to flow through and around the clothes to pick up moisture. The drum occupies most of the volume inside the cabinet. Paddles or baffles inside the drum carry the clothes to the top and drop them down towards the bottom of the drum. The drum is supported at the rear by two rollers. The front of the drum is supported by a plastic slip ring turning inside a felt ring bearing and seal. A belt encircles the drum and the pulley on one end of the motor drive shaft. The motor pulley diameter is very small in comparison to the diameter of the drum and therefore turns many times for one revolution of the drum.
