I was operations manager for a large coin op company and we had a dryer that had repearted call for not drying.
After the second call I had it changed and brought to the shop. I put in a full load of clothes and turned it on. At the end some clothes
were dry some not, even part of the same item was dry and wet. It has a glass door so I watched closer and the close were sticking to the drum when rotating and not tumbling.
I had a bunch of techs in the next morning and asked them to look at it and give me their observations. A brand new kid I just hired from the tech school Appliance Servicing program said
It looks like it is going to fast, to which a seasoned veteran said "you are full of crap" "you young punks are all book taught and no common sense" To which I replied, "it has a 50 Hz pulley on a dryer that is in a 60 Hz
environment. I never heard of that but have seen it a dozen times since then. The pulleys are marked with lines as to where there are supposed to be. The 50 in place of 60 caused the drum to turn to fast. Maytag shipped a bunch
of machines that were supposed to go to Canada where it was 50 Hz back then.
Please do not drink & drive
