Default how do they calculate energy usage on dryers?

My dryer uses 939 kwh/year during typical usage according to the energuide sticker on the top. My new clothes line uses zero.

I'm wanting to work out how much I'm saving per load dried on the line but since my watt meter doesn't handle 220 I'm hoping I can get a good estimate on the average load from the 939kwh/year.

I just can't find information on how they came up with that average. Does anyone have any ideas or other suggestions on how to work this out?
