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.
