What types of washer dryer are available?

Washer dryers measure between 80 – 90cm (high) x 50 – 60cm (wide) x 50 – 60cm (deep), so the first decision you have to make is where in your kitchen will it fit.

Also you need to consider if you want your washer dryer to be visible/on display in your kitchen (freestanding) or do you want it to be hidden behind a cupboard door (built in/integrated).

These washer dryers are disguised behind furniture doors to keep a streamlined look and feel in your kitchen. They have a flat front and space to attach door hinges so they can be completely hidden behind a door and won’t draw attention away from your kitchen design.


FreestandingThese washer dryers are good if you want your appliance to be seen and they are fairly easy to fit in as they just slot into your kitchen. The average kitchen top is 85-90cm high and perfect for placing a washer dryer underneath, but make sure you measure the height of your kitchen surface before buying.

Most washer dryers are cold fill, so they only need to be connected to a cold water supply. If this is the case make sure you seal off the hot tap to prevent leakages.

Some washer dryers are hot and cold fill and these will need to be connected to both the hot and cold water sources.

Note: it is imperative you remove the transit bolts before you install and use your machine. Failing to do so will damage your new appliance.

The instruction manual provided with the appliance will explain how to install your appliance but if you would like someone else to connect it for you then look at our appliance connection services
