Question about Frigidaire FLEB8200DS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
I work at an animal clinic and we do laundry all day long. Wet towels & blankets are taken out of the washer and stacked on the dryer so the next wash load can be started. The dryer is on while the stack of heavy towels and blankets are on it. How does this affect the drying time and most importantly, what can happen to the dryer?
This won't affect drying time unless the load is so heavy it causes the cabinet to warp and disturb the door seal. If you haven't had any problem with this so far you can probably keep doing it. (The machine is designed to support the weight of a wet load in the drum, and should have some safety margin. But why not invest in a roll-around laundry cart like you find at laundromats and keep the wet load there until the dryer is clear?) You might need to be more concerned about rust starting on the top of the cabinet if the enamel is scratched, since it's not usually subjected to wet loads being piled there. You should also check your vent pipe frequently to make sure it stays clear with all the drying you do. Clogged lint screens and vent pipes will definitely lengthen drying time.
