Re: Washing machine installation

When I was living in the US and in college, I had a washing machine that hooked up to the kitchen sink faucet. It was on wheels so that it could be moved easily, and it attached to the sink faucet with a simple hose and adapter. It looked like a regular top-loading washing machine, just a bit smaller. It would drain into the sink. It actually worked really well, and I never had any problems with leaks or anything. I also had a dryer that just vented into a bucket of water. I was able to use it in a closet even.

I'm not sure if something like that exists here (though I'd be surprised if it didn't). But maybe it's something to consider, if that is available here, so that you wouldn't have to have plumbing hook-ups and a drain installed for a regular washing machine.
A friend of mine still has one connected like that. I remember mine like this in them days .... I had to sit on it while it was spinning to stop it from jumping about

OP, the connection is not the problem, can be done to every sink. Just adding two bits. The problem is more - do you have the space for a machine next to a sink, as you don't want the pipes crossing your morning paths.

You can easily do it yourself. Last time I had it done by a pro 'cause I was very busy at the time and didn't want to bother with such things and it was not expensive (sorry, long time ago, can't be more specific).
