Lemons are highly acidic and that can severely damage the washing machine, even in one use. The only thing to reverse this is vinegar which will nutrilise the protein in the lemons acid. In the compartment where you put in your fabric conditioner, just pour in half a small bottle of vinegar and do a quick wash with no clothes. Then your machine will be saved from acidic damage to the interior.

I think that a dryer would be just fine, as long as it was only a use. Can't recommend making a habit of that, honestly.

You ought not to put lemon in a machine of any kind. What is the purpose of putting a lemon in a sock anyway??? Fruit belongs on a plate, to be eaten. Or squeezed and the juice drunk. Fruit should not ever be put in a machine. Who told you such a crazy thing?

Yes. It's bad. I would not put anything in the dryer that does not belong in there. You can cause damage to it.

I don't know if it would damage the machine or not, but the lemon may damage some of the fabrics you are drying. I don't think that's a good idea. A small amount of white vinegar (about 1/2 cup) may be put in the washing machine's fabric softener reservoir to use as a softener.
