    If it uses electric heat, then in most cases no...the heating element cycles on and off during the drying cycle, coming on less and less as it gets towards the end, particularly if the dryer also has a moisture sensor.

    A gas heated dryer maintains the flame at a constant temperature the whole time, I believe.
