Without those drum baffles, the clothes would get wadded up into a tangled ball that wouldn't dry werf a shi'ite. If one of the baffles is broken off inside your dryer, it's an easy and inexpensive repair. Here's the part link to the baffle ==> Dryer Drum Baffle
And here's how to install it:

I've been reading the previous 50 or so posts tonight---and noticed several visitors to the forum had a common "problem" with their dryer---which uses a MOISTURE SENSOR.
The complaint was identical:
"Laundry doesn't always dry" (and the vent system was ruled-out)
The responses were similar:
"Avoid small loads in dryers that have/use MOISTURE SENSORS"
"For small loads---use the TIME DRY cycle"
There is a solution---and it's a very simple one.
Some years back---I had an older lady (widow)---that contacted us regarding her LG dryer.
Her complaint was that the laundry was not dry at the end of the cycle.
Also---the cycle run time/duration was rather short (cycle ended far earlier than initial time displayed).
In her case---she does not wash/dry large loads at all---and rarely does she even have medium sized loads to wash.
On LG dryers---the MOISTURE SENSOR ("bars") are located at the front of the dryer---on the LINT FILTER HOUSING.
If the dryer is dead-level---which hers was---a small load of laundry will tumble in the GIANT DRUM and very erratically come into contact with the MOISTURE SENSOR.
By raising the REAR LEVELING LEGS about an inch---this forced the tumbling small load of laundry to remain at the *front* of the dryer---continually falling/contacting the MOISTURE SENSOR.
On dryers (other brands) in which the sensors are positioned at the rear/back of the drum---simply raise the *front* leveling legs to get the same result.
Technicians can demonstrate to the customer by running the dryer with 2 or 3 small pieces of clothing---laundry will either tumble at the rear of the drum or near the center (in an LG dryer--for example).
Explain to the customer---the MOISTURE SENSORs function and that wet/damp laundry *must* continually come into contact with the sensor (show the customer the location of the sensor).
After adjusting the legs---the customer/owner will notice the laundry moving toward the SENSOR location with 30 seconds of starting the cycle---and remain at that location in the drum for the duration of the cycle.

• Unsnap glide from each glide bracket.
7. Reverse procedure to reassemble.
NOTE: Verify felt seal on exhaust fan cover is airtight on flange of duct.
If seal is installed improperly air flow will be restricted which can cause poor dryer performance.
When installing the cylinder seal it is important that the stitching on the seal face towards the dryer center.
The short flap must be glued to the bulkhead and the long flap left loose.
NOTE: Adhere sealant (No. 22506P) to bulkhead using a continuious bead completely around the entire flange
where the felt seal contacts the bulkhead.

(located on each end of the terminal block) and pulling away from motor.
10.Remove screws securing motor mounting bracket to dryer base.
NOTE: When reassembling, be sure seal on exhaust fan cover makes airtight seal on flange of duct.
If the seal is installed improperly, the airflow through the exhaust system will be restricted which can adversely affect dryer performance.
NOTE: When reinstalling motor and exhaust assembly, be sure wire harness on right side is clipped to motor mounting bracket
and is routed along dryer base (between motor mounting bracket and right side of cabinet).
Tab on rear of motor mounting bracket must be inserted into slot in dryer base.
Be sure the belt has been installed on the correct side of the idler lever.
