Our very conventional old style tumble dryer timer runs for some 45
minutes per load.

With heater cutting in and out (estimating it's on say 80%?).
Heater elements are either 3000 watts or maybe 4500, haven't had this
one apart yet, since I got it in exchange for a dozen beer!

Our domestic electricity costs a little over 10 cents per k.watt hr.

So one load of clothes 45/60 x 0.8 a cost of electricity = 0.75 x 0.8 x 0.12 = 7 cents per load.

Occasionally it is necessary to run a 'heavy' load, towels and blankets etc. part of a second run.

So maybe that could be say 12 to 15 cents per load. In summer we hang bedclothes and towels on outside lines.
