The washer and dryer are both electric.
The dryer may have an electric cord but it could still be gas. The electric cord on a gas dryer is to run the motor that turns the drum/ tumbles the clothes.
Is the cord on the dryer the same diameter as the cord for the washer? If the cord is the same size then the dryer may be gas. If the cord for the dryer is larger (more than twice the size) then the washer then it is electric. You cannot not just plug an electric dryer into a regular wall outlet. It needs to have a specail outlet because the electric dryer uses the power to run the motor and to power the electric elements that heat up the air to dry the clothes.
If the dryer is gas then you will need to have a gas line going to it.
Regarding the washer, how close is the nearest drain line? (ie. a sink drain, tub drain...)
How close is the nearest hot and cold water?
