Taking clothes from a dryer on Shabbos


Clothing which was left in a dryer knowingly before Shabbos, and which had been ready for use when Shabbos started, may be used on Shabbos. However, where one simply forgot they were there, we assume that he did not intend to use them, and they are viewed as muktzeh; placing them in the wash removed them from normal use, and they were not re-introduced into use.

[Of course, any withdrawal of clothing from a dryer will be permitted only if opening the dryer would not turn on a light.]

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:21:10)

Have a great day,
