About this deal

Just in case, we recommend factoring this into your calculations when budgeting for dishwasher installat. A washing machine is normally connected to the cold and hot water systems, but quite a few will work with just a cold supply while dishwashers usually only need a cold supply. But the connectors are too narrow for the pipe, and the tap needs to be in a Y shape ideally, so that both pipes connect roughly horizontally. In this case, the ‘grey water’ from your washing machine will help flush out any greases and fats that find their way into your dishwasher waste.

This will mean that regardless of how hot the washer being discharged is, you are likely to get a small flood in your kitchen or utility room. Make sure not to push the appliance back against the wall to avoid trapping the drainage hoses or damaging the water supply. If your washing machine waste uses a standpipe type arrangement, it may potentially freeze in the winter months. If a gooseneck doesn't provide the clearance, or if you can't find one, you may have to make an extension. Attach the supply hose to the valve by screwing its cap nut onto the threaded outlet making sure it’s tight.Ensure your washing machine safely disposes of wastewater and by-products with our range of washing machine hoses and connectors. In this case using solder-ring T pieces and copper tube, you'll need some wire-wool to clean the pipe, some flux, a blow-torch, a heatproof mat/shield and the ability to turn off the water supply and drain the pipes. You might be in a situation where you want to install both appliances but there is only a wastewater outlet for one appliance. Your machine’s flexible waste hose has to discharge into a waste pipe or trap above the level of the top of the drum. Clamp the saddle assembly in place around the pipe with its two halves square to the pipe, inserting the screws and tightening them fully.

In this case, you can either hire a professional to come and remedy the issue or you can learn how to drain a washing machine yourself.Splitter: The easier option, however, is where you leave your existing waste in place and connect the two wastes to a ‘splitter’. Ideally the copper pipe and washing machine valve would twist clockwise so the outlet of the appliance valve points upwards, the copper pipe should turn quite easily in those hep push fit connectors. Also useful if you only have a cold supply and your older washing machine needs hot and cold water supplies. An alternative is to have all circuits in that room on an RCD/RCBO, but that didn't apply when this house was built.
