The maximum heat that most dryers can reach is somewhere between 145-150 degrees farenheit. Of course, this can vary between makes, models, and manufacturers, but if a dryer is heating up beyond 150 degrees, you should probably have it checked out by a professional as it could very well turn into a fire hazard.
