This sir sounds like a man that has been around a few dryers....:-)  and I
can actually see the therory in what you say.....But I have a antique
Maytag.....heating element surrounds the drum on this model! And my wife
swears it actually cut about 20min off the drying time...(my pulley) But it
could have just been that it was going slower than it was supposed to
before....But as long as she thinks I may have improved it....I will be
allowed to keep playing with her appliences :-)  have had long term plans
for a air powered blender!


oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
