How Many Watts Does a Dryer Use?


The amount of watts a dryer uses per load of clothes will depend on the brand of drying machine. Most clothes dryers use anywhere between 1800 watts to 5000 watts per load. On most appliances the information is imprinted on a label either on the back or bottom. Many dryers put the labels on the front or back. On the label, how many watts used will be included. The level of drying will also affect the amount of watts used. If clothes are normally dried on the highest setting, then more power output is needed as opposed to drying at a more optimum level.
