When I dried my heavy cotton slipcovers they rubbed against the rope that separates the drum and the inside of the dryer in our Samsung front loading dryer. This rope is at the front and back of the dryer. i had to scrub my cording on 2 pieces three times. Since the dye was not coming off on towels or less heavy fabrics I finally used the dryer shelf and laid the pieces folded one by one. It took 2 days.
