Anything that uses electricity to make heat will cost a fortune. Your drier is likely to be 2 - 2.5 KW and will use 2-2.5 units per hour whereas a washing line is free.

Similarly a washing machine uses most when heating up the water so a lower temperature wash, say 30C, will save nearly 30% compared to 40C. Liikewise if it has an "ECO" setting that uses less water so less to heat up.

Use the highest spin speed to help dry stuff out first. Mine has a 1400 rpm and much stuff is almost dry when it comes out.
