I am about to replace our washing machine - I think for mum this is only about the 4th one since 1961 so it will be with us for some time. The question is .. for potential use with overnight cheap tariffs, is there any reason to go for an integrated delay timer in the machine itself, or to go for one which plugs into the wall socket? As I can see, the reasons for wanting a delay timer in the machine are: - machine has to be removed to access plug. - insufficient space behind machine. (Obvs. A well designed kitchen will have the plug in the next cupboard, but that is still tricky to access). And the reasons to have a separate timer include the extra cost. At a previous house we had E7 but the plug socket was at the front of a cupboard so access was fine, What do Buildhubbers do? Ferdinand
It seems to be my week for thicky questions, or certainly naive ones. I've only ever had one dishwasher and this has finally given up after 18 years of service, so I know very little about all their bits and bobs. The new one is coming tomorrow, so we were taking out the old one this evening. Crack, spray, squelch. The plastic part that is on the end of the water inlet hose and between that and the connector that screws into the dishwasher broke and is beyond repair. Is the part that screws into the new dishwasher a standard thing, or do they vary in size from brand to brand? Can I just walk into a plumbing supplier and just buy a new one, or do I need to order from a supplier?
