I don’t have any experience with cloth diapers but you can get a clothes drying rack pretty cheap at walmart/target if you want to try drying them on that.  I would guess that maybe the heat from the normal dryer setting may cause some of the chemicals that help with absorbancy to break down, but no idea on how much that would be.

Dry them on low in the dryer and you’ll be fine.  You don’t want any higher heat than that or it can effect the PUL on pocket diapers.

ETA: You can dry inserts and fitted diapers on medium usually without issue because they don’t have PUL.  If you are drying covers and pocket diapers though, you probably should be sticking with low heat.  Also, get some dryer balls.  Totally helps speed drying time.
