Hello all As anyone with a front-loading washing machine knows, watching them in action can be great entertainment. Well, I was bored tonight and did just that. During the final spin cycle, the drum spins really, really fast (not too sure how many rpm) to wring most of the water out of the clothes. Magically, the wet clothes seemed to plaster themselves evenly around the drum so that axis of rotation was in line with the center of mass. If this hadn't been so, the drum would have caused some serious vibrations when it got up to speed. So my question is, what is the process that causes the clothes to distribute evenly around the drum?
