Electric bill less when washer/dryer are used at separate times vs used at the same time?
That depends on what washer and dryer you're using. I'd say, do it at the same time so they can use the amount they are going to use, but in a shorter time. You can test it, for one billing period use them at the same time, then the next one, don't. Then you should have a clear view of the bill.
I ask you a question: Did you think about your question before you asked it? If you had, you would have realized that they each use what they use, whether they are on at the same time or not.

there is no difference. The size of the load matters and if the machines are working according to specifications.
Do it at the same time. I would also recommend you switch of your gyser when everyone has used hot water. unplug the anything u a are not using. Switch off the lights in rooms you are not in. Have you thought of using solar power. It is way cheap and you can slash your electricity bills by 89% or even eliminate it completely. Our electricity used to be cut because we couldn't afford to pay the electricity bill sometimes, now we use solar power and man, are we glad we changed it. Yo can do it yourself to avoid paying thousands of dollars. Believe me you can do it way cheaper. read my report and see for yourself. Everyone avoids solar panels but they really save you money in the long run. It is an investment you have to think about. In the end you wont worry about high electricity bills. Believe me!!!
Install solar panels yourself :

Simply unplug any unused electronics. Even unused electronics are plugged in they are still using electricity which means your being charged unnecessairly. There is a term in which is coined for this scenerio, "phantom energy" !
