The place you buy if from may do it for free, if new, or charge a small fee of $50-100.oo or less. If you hire a handy man that could vary. Both appliances come with directions how to hook up. The washer is easier than the dryer. You have a hot and cold line that connects from the washer to the spickets behind the washer, they are marked on the hoses. There is another hose that goes in the back of the washer that goes to the same spot that drains the water out on the spin cycle and a plug. On the dryer there is a plug and the vent hose that goes from the back of the dryer to the vent hole in the floor or wall. Takes less than an hour to do both. This is IF you have hook-ups already in place for a washer and dryer. If not, the costs are going to be a lot more significant. The cost depends on where you are putting the washer and dryer. If Plumbing and electrical lines are close by it might run you about $400-500 for everything. (water lines to the washer, drain for the washer, electrical to the dryer and vent for dryer) However, it can be several hundred dollars more if you need to run plumbing and electrical lines significant distances (20 ft or more). To make it the cheapest possible, pick a location where water lines and an electrical box are less than 10 ft away. Also, if you do it yourself, you can save a lot of money and might only spend $100-200 in materials.
It depends on what kind of dryer you are going to put in though I recommend to put in a 110 dryer so there will be no need for a contractor as the outlet for your washer is usually rated to supply enough amps for both appliances.

When choosing a washer and dryer, individuals should consider many factors and necessities. Family size will be one of the most important factors. Those with larger families will obviously need a larger washer dryer set, but will probably also be concerned about cost and benefits. Finding a washer and dryer with lower energy usage and a higher volume capability will significantly lower future costs. While buying a cheap set might seem like a good idea at first, it may cost more in repairs and energy in the future. Families should weigh these costs and benefits before choosing a washer dryer set.
Washer costs: # Cost of total gallons of water used per wash. # Cost to heat that amount of water. # Cost of electricity per wash. Dryer costs: # Cost of electricity per load. # If a gas dryer, the cost of gas per load. Cost saving measures: # Wash using cold water (saves cost to heat water) # Adjust water level for size of wash # ALWAYS clean lint filter before each use of dryer # Keep dryer exhaust vent and all piping free of lint (vacuum once/twice per year)
Very carefully, of course. You need to calculate the power in watts in the gas, then get an electric heater with a blower that produces the same power. Since gas is cheaper than electricity why would you want to do this? <<>> You can not convert a gas dryer to an electrical dryer. These are two different pieces of equipment and the internal workings of the dryers are not even close in comparison. If you are thinking of changing to electricity from a gas dryer, it will cost you more money to run the electric dryer. The electric dryer will need a new supply breaker directly from the service distribution panel to the new electric dryer's location.30 amp breaker, 3C #10 wire and a dryer receptacle have to be installed. You will have to get a gas fitter in to terminate your existing gas line that goes to the existing dryer as that is not a homeowner's DIY. Best advice, stick with the gas dryer.
