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.

How do you convert a gas dryer hookup to an electric dryer hookup?

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.

Choosing a Washer and Dryer?

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.

A washer and a dryer cost 728 combined The washer costs 78 more than the dryer What is the cost of the dryer?

You need two equations to do this. The first is 2x+78=728. The other is x+78=y. In both equations "x" is equal to the price of the dryer and "y" is equal to the price of the washer. We know that the washer costs 78 more than the dryer. The math goes like this. 2x + 78 = 728 (first equation) 2x + 78 - 78 = 728 - 78 (subtract 78 from both sides) 2x = 650 (new equation) 2x / 2 = 650 / 2 (divide both sides by 2) x = 325 (dryer costs 325) Now we have a value for "x" and can complete the second equation x + 78 = y (second equation) 325 + 78 = y (substitute known value for x) 403 = y (washer costs 403) Now we check to make sure that we did it correctly x + y = 728 (dryer + washer = 728) 325 + 403 = 728 (substitute known values for x and y) 728 = 728 (we did it correctly) The dryer costs 325 and the washer costs 403

The only practical way to do that would be to sell the electric clothes dryer and use the proceeds toward purchase of a gas dryer.

If you mean converting the building, then you would need to have natural gas plumbing installed, and you would need an outlet that matches the voltage of the new dryer.
