Rhymes with 'Troll'
This word is used within Gujarati Indian households, normally by a father, or male figure within the family. It is another word for washing machine, but used in the context of physically using a washing machine. It is not a direct translation of washing machine, i.e. you would not go out to buy a 'roll'. But to load the washing machine, you would be putting on a 'roll', therefore you put the 'roll' on.
'Has anyone got any clothes to wash, i'm putting a roll on'

'When the roll is done, can you put the clothes out to dry'

Son: 'Where's my work shirt?'
Dad: 'Check the clothes airer, I did a roll this morning'
