A tumble dryer operates by tumbling the clothing in a rotating drum, which is turned by a motor. Hot air is blown through the tumbling clothing, through many small holes in the drum. The hot air is moved around the drum by a fan, to dry the clothing.
The fan is therefore an important feature of the drying process, and reduces the drying time by allowing uniform exposure to the hot air for all the clothing in the drum. If the fan becomes broken, damaged, or worn, it will not operate smoothly and correctly, and drying will be less efficient. It is important to replace a damaged fan promptly, to prevent the overheating of parts of the tumble dryer or clothing. Additionally, a tumble dryer should not be operated with a broken fan, since parts may become detached, and cause damage to other components in the dryer. Genuine replacement tumble dryer fans can be ordered by selecting the correct spare part for the tumble dryer model. Model numbers will be found on the tumble dryer hinge, or on the rear of the appliance. A replacement fan can be chosen from those listed for the appropriate manufacturer.
