Wet towels & blankets stacked on working 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.

Washer Dryer Stacked Combo won't start and didn't drain properly.


Hello Joshua, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire laundry center is not starting and did not drain properly. It is possible that this could be a miscommunication within the laundry center and a reset may help clear that out for you. In order to reset your laundry center you would need to disconnect power from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help your laundry center you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this is helpful and if you should need further assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Lion Brank Nature's Choice Organic cotton sheds like crazy. What do I do? Made a beautiful baby blanket and afraid to give to the mommy, baby will end up with a mouthful of cotton.


You may want to soak the (finish product) of the blanket in a warm soapy water (bar/bath soap is prefer). Let it stay for about 20 minutes or so. Do not wring or dry it in the machine. Use a fresh towel. Lay the towel on flat surface. Put the wet blanket on top of towel. Roll the towel together with the blanket and add a little pressure to the roll to get the excess water out of the blanket. If still need it take another fresh towel and do it the same way. Then, lay flat to dry. Warm water and soap usually will make the fiber to be less sheds. Good luck!

I am trying to figure out the capacity on my Kitchen Aid dryer, model KEYS677EQ1.


dear customer the capacity for a dryer is mostly comen sense for example if you dry blankets they are farly heavy you can put as much as you like in your dryer but dont forget that wet cloth is heavy on your dryer or wet jeans it will work no problem but on the long run your dryer will wear out faster because of the weight normal clothe what goes in the washing machine goes in the dryer thankyou have a great day from gilles
