Services Connection, Disposal, Disconnection

    We want you to get up and running straight away with your new appliance, which is why our expert team will connect your new item to your water pipes and make sure everything is working properly. Connecting it yourself? Make sure you remove the transit bolts. These will make a loud rattling sound if they’re left in place when you run a cycle.

    We’ll happily take away your old appliance for you and recycle it. All we ask is that it’s disconnected, empty and ready to go. The fee for this service relates to the cost of taking your old appliance away on our van rather than the recycling service.

Swan Retro SDW7040CN

A great machine, looks very sleek in my utility room. It has everything you need - I find the Time Delay function useful and I tend to put it on over night so my pots are gleaming in the morning! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for something that stands out.

Cool Retro Cream Dishwasher

Lovely retro design. Slightly more yellowed then cream but still looked good. Well packaged, prompt delivery, excellent customer care and notifications. Best ever. Bottom tray is smooth glide, sturdy and bigger than average cutlery tray which is great. Top tray not so good. A bit wobbly and tiered shelf mean that glasses fall around until packed full. Dials easy to use but all controls inside so can't see when it is on or finished as no light on outside. Dishwasher tablet does NOT dissolve if put in the door compartment. It falls out near front and just sits there till the end. You have to put it on the floor of the dishwasher near the middle but then it works. I checked this out in trouble shooting section so be aware if you have same issue. Excellent cleaning though.

very poor

I've owned many dishwashers with no issues, always been thrilled with them. I decided to splash out for the nice look this time. It was a mistake. The dishwasher is useless. Badly designed functionally. Blades get blocked with food. No blade at the very top of the machine so anything put on the top remains dirty one side as no water reaches it. If you put any items anywhere near the tablet pocket the doesn't open! No light indicating the cycle is finished. I end up having to revwash most items. Would not advise anyone to splash out.

Pros: Looks good Cons: Expensive, Poor quality
