In the US the tumble dryer requires a 30 amp service at 240vac, washing machine requires a 20 amp 120vac isolated circuit. I don’t know how y’all do it or the current on the dryers and washing machine in the UK
I think your appliances are a bit bigger than ours, if I understand it correctly you normally have them somewhere other than a kitchen?

Our standard washing machines or dryers are often in the kitchen and designed to fit into a standardised kitchen unit size. Usually this is a 600mm(~2') wide space. Consequently they require less power to operate as they wash or dry smaller amounts of clothes each time.

Bigger houses or more modern ones will usually have a seperate room, usually referred to as a utility room, but for the 'average' house these appliances are in the kitchen.
We also have the washer/dryer which combines both functions in a single machine, which I doubt is so common for you?

Not really I didn’t know they made them to wash and dry in the same machine
