And occasionally if I'm in a hurry I'll throw EVERYTHING in the dryer. Once in awhile the dryer doesn't hurt, but I do know that hanging diapers to dry at least part of the time will extend the life of your diapers.
I have found line drying drastically helps with the smell! Also, if you struggle with smell, after you have washed the diapers, wash them on a super hot wash, near boiling, with a capful of calgon. Then rinse a few times. That should help out a bit. I do that about once a month.
