- Air dry is a function in a washing machine that largely removes moisture from washed clothes.
- The clothes have to be transferred from the wash tub to the spin tub for air drying.
- Tiny vents are fitted inside the spin tub to let in gushes of air.
- Once a spin cycle is initiated using the spin timer, the machine will suck in air from the surroundings.
- Rotation of the spin tub creates air currents that come into contact with the clothes through the air vents.
- This makes the moisture on washed clothes evaporate thereby drying them.
- The time taken to dry the clothes depends on the material they are made of, as well as the thickness of the fabric.
