  • yes, i do leave it on if i need to leave & there are things in the dryer. It has a safety, if it gets over a certain temp. It shuts off by itself.

  • All the time. I let the dishwasher run. I let the washer run. I let the dryer run. I leave the crock pot going. I have a lot to do. Besides, no one ever advised to turn off a refrigerator, hot water heater, or heating and a/c when you leave the house.

  • Yes, mine has the same safety feature that samurai_chica's has so it's safe and with all I've got going on it's great to come home to clothes ready to be put away.
