My washer is a hunk of junk, and will often stop right as the spin cycle is beginning, and then just give up on the whole load, leaving me with a washer full of soaking wet clothes. It refuses to do anything else until the wet clothes are removed.
When I put these clothes in the dryer, they are soaking wet. Not wet like they are at the end of a spin cycle; wet with water dripping off of them.
Other than the fact that it takes quite a bit longer to get them dry, I’ve noticed no ill effects. Is it bad for clothes, in either the short term or the long term, to be put in a dryer when soaking wet?
