What is Reverse Tumble Action?

A dryer with reverse tumble action will periodically reverse the direction of the drum while drying. This helps to separate your clothes so they dry more quickly and evenly, while preventing tangles and reducing wrinkles. By speeding up the dry time, reverse tumble action can also help reduce your energy consumption. Note that some brands have their own unique name for this feature, such as GE's Detangle Assist.
