I know with my kids fake fur trimmed clothes they can NOT be put in the dryer. The heat makes the fur crinkle up and get really yucky looking. I would suggest using only a small amount of laundry soap mixed into a sinkful of cool water. Squeeze the plushie so the suds swish through the fur and stuffing. Then fill the sink with cool clear water, and swish and squeeze the plushie to rinse all of the soap out. Then squeeze as much of the water out as you can. Then use a bath towel to squeeze even more water out of the plushie to get it as dry as you can. Put the plushie in a place where it will dry as fast as possible. If you have a dehumidifier in your basement, this would be a good place. The point is, you want the plushie to dry out quickly before mold starts to grow in the stuffing (eeew!) Then when it seems the plushie is dry, use a soft brush, or gently comb the fur so it is fluffy again. Good luck!
If you have one of the newer dryers, there sometimes is a dryer rack (we have a GE Profile) that allows you to dry special items and set the dryer to low. If your dryer does not come with a rack but can be set to a low setting, you can still dry your pets on the tumble. Check your dryer manual to see what kind of items can go in there. Sometimes "low" isn't very low... it's just how low that specific model goes.
The manufacturer always says to spot wash but I've done washer and dryer and the stuffed animals come out nice and clean. Ofcourse summer is a great time to clean the pets since it's hot so you can leave them basking for a tan for the day after thier bath if you are concerned about using your dryer.
