With indoor launderettes, outer layers get spins (6)


I believe the answer is:


'spins' is the definition.
('whirl' can be a synonym of 'spin')

'with indoor launderettes outer layers' is the wordplay.
'with indoor launderettes' becomes 'whir' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'outer' means to remove the middle letters.
'layers' with its middle removed is 'ls'.

'get' acts as a link.

(Another definition for whirls that I've seen is " Swings or spins round and round".)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
