Cheapest washer about $325, cheapest dryer about $225 on sale. More common prices around $500-650 and $350-400 respectively, on up to $1000+ for fanciest front loaders and steam washers. Plus sometimes $100 range to deliver and install, though many stores would do that for free if you bought a pair. Just check out Sears or Target or similar site to see typical models and $.

This assumes the electric and gas (if needed) hookups and dryer vent ducting and plumbing are already in place - they usually are, but may not be fully configured for gas or electric dryer - may only have one or the other, And if older house you need to check the amperage rating on the electric circuit is suitable for your electric dryer if that is what you want - modern ones take higher amperage than in the old days. If not, check out the Home > Plumbing and Home > Electrical links in Browse Projects at left for prior questions on costs of installing those. Varies widely depending on distance to connection points and pipes and such, but from several hundreds to $1000 plus depending - and much even more if breaker box cannot handle added dryer load or gas piping is not run to the house.
