[UK filter] What to do with an exorbitant electricity bill from E.on?

I moved into a flat in London in Sept 2011. I wasn't given any meter readings---my agency didn't have them and didn't even know where the meters are. Landlord also doesn't have a good idea where they may be. I don't know previous tenants. There is no gas in this flat---it's electricity only. [more inside]

How much does it cost to wash?

How much does it cost (or what is the amount of electricity / volume of water used) to do one full load of laundry, as an average. Or, how would I go about getting precise figures for this? I want to know how much too much we pay to operate the pay-per-load laundry machines in our new apartment building.
