Does hot water washing and dryer kill fleas and ticks?

I saw a bug, don't know what it was, on my dog's blanket. So I folded it up quickly and threw all his blankets, beds in the washing machine on hot, and then dryer.

Would this kill fleas and ticks? I know likely fleas but what about ticks?

I know it definitely kills the fleas, don't know about the ticks though.

I would think they would at the very least drown in the water... but I'm not 100% sure.
