Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is Kelly and I look forward to helping you!
The dryer should be on its own fused circuit, so I would have that changed. As far as location, it should not be an issue but it should not share a circuit with any other outlets or appliances.

It will vary in some locations but for safety, it should be a dedicated circuit.
High Power circuits
Within domestic premises, there may be a number of high wattage appliances, the most common being an electric cooker, clothes dryer, immersion heater and electric shower. Each of these appliances should be connected to the consumer unit using a dedicated fuse/trip and cable run. The installation instructions for the appliance should detail the wattage of the appliance (which will also normally be shown somewhere on the appliance), the amperage of the fuse/trip and the size of cable required. Any switches on these circuits must also be of a suitable current rating.
