    <FONT color="#000000" size="2">i agree with your mother. i have sat and watched at the laundry mat when people fill up a dryer with as many clothes as they can and than pop a quarter in. they end up going back every 10 minutes to pop a quarter and i have counted once they popped at least8 quarters in and didnt go back and forth and it took an hour 20 minutes for the clothes to dry. i pop in 3 quarters and mine are toasty dry after 1/2 and hour when i divide them in half and im out of there a lot faster.

    I guess it depends on how big of a dryer. I have one of those huge dryers and I can put a lot of stuff in there, so I would never divide it in two. Kelly

    I think there are a lot of factors to consider, like the brand that you have, and do you wait for the dryer to turn off and then put a new load in, so that it has to re-heat.

    Time the total dry time (and probably not the cool down cycle) to dry the full load, then time it for the half loads. See which one is faster.

    I imagine it would come out close, but am not sure. if running twice takes longer then it would take more energy especially if you allow it to cool down in between.

    I just bought a front-loader and it spins the water out so well I don't deal with them not drying in once cycle.. and we do some heavy loads....

    My Thoughts.

    This answer depends on the capacities of the machines involved. A large capacity washer can wash quite a few dry clothes but the dryer is most efficient with a maximum capacity of 25 lbs. wet laundry. So some washer loads I split up also, like towels and jeans, because of the wet weight. source of information - it started with the repairman, replacing the worn out belt on the dryer, but I double checked it with the manufacturer's webpage. kym

    It all depends on many factors:the capacity of the washer, the capacity of the dryer, whats in the load, the particular dryer, etc. It's not something that will ever have a definitive answer and therefore, isn't worth arguing over. I'm happy that my new dryer gets a large load dry in the time it takes the next to wash instead of taking four hours, that's the only factor that really matters in the end for me. Lori.

    run a test - do a load of washing - put into the dryer and dry being

    sure to time it correctly. When the clothes are dry to your

    satisfaction - put them back into the washer on a rinse only cycle.

    Put half into the dryer - timing it then the other half and you'll know

    for sure - END of argument.

    Do not wash a different load of clothes or the argument goes on because

    this load was heavier fabrics, etc.

    If it costs $5 to end the argument - you're ahead! Let us know the

    outcome!! KarenMO

    I think your mother is right if your talking about laundry. They even say if you

    throw in a dry big towel it will help to dry your clothing faster. I know that

    if I put a big load in to dry at one time I will have clothing still a little

    damp so I even will take out a few things along the way if I remember before the

    time is up to help easy the load but I think her way is better and easier.

    Sorry.

    I have done the same thing at times.



    Whenever I do jeans, I hang several pair on the line. It

    takes a lot of time and energy to dry heavy jeans.



    I do dry towels in smaller loads for the same reason. I

    like them to be dried in the dryer, at least partly, but

    they are heavy and take a long time to dry.



    My washer holds a large amount and there is plenty of room

    for the clothes to get cleaned in one single load.



    However, the dryer seems to work more efficiently by the

    same token - not stuffed to the gills, so the clothes and

    other items can toss freely. So, I do not usually dry the

    full wash load in one dryer load, if that makes sense.



    I have an electric dryer. A gas dryer is more efficient,

    in my opinion, in that it drys clothes faster. When our

    dryer is done in years to come, I will look at replacing it

    with a gas version.
