About $10.

Do the math. Amps x Volts = Watts. A typical dryer is 30 amps @ 240 volts. That's 7200 Watts. Average electricity cost is $.07 per 1000 watt-hours. So...if you run the dryer for one hour will use 7200 watt-hours. 7.2 x $.07 = $.50 per hour of usage.

How many loads of cloths does the average PERSON DO PER year?

I dry about 8 loads a week. It's easy to move one load from the washer to the dryer so it's not about separating it again, you just take a washed load and move it to the dryer. It's not a good idea to mix colors and whites in the dryer because lint can transfer between the items. **** : The first response to this question is ridiculous. : I do about 42 loads of laundry a year, that's less than one per week. I read that Proctor and Gamble claim that the average American family does 300 loads/ year, that's 6 loads/ week. I prefer to dry only about half of my washed clothes, so about 22 dryer loads a year.

Just bought the new Samsung gas and electric washer and is it rated ?

The Samsung gas dryer and electric washer overall are GOOD products. The only cons are the sensor has an issue when there are mixed loads to be dried (towels and lighter items), and there's no delay start feature. The pros are: they're both quiet, energy efficient and its features and looks are impeccable. The price for both is GREAT!
