Re: Washing machine installation

Actually you're not even allowed to do that (three phase wiring), so if you do then don't tell anyone...

In the UK you can buy adapters that look like a regular extension lead but with each socket connected to a different phase. Not sure if you can get that here (i.e. T25 plug to 3x T13 sockets) other than the bulky "Baustromverteiler" units.

Water connection however is easy - most sinks already have the necessary bit to attach the water outlet from an appliance, and if not then it's pretty simple to fit one.
Never saw a washing machine that needed 3 phase, they come with a regular plug even in CH where I have bought 2.

3 phase is very rare in domestic settings in the UK, unless your home is bigger than say 400m2 heated by electricity it won't be needed.
