Re: Washing machine installation

Never saw a washing machine that needed 3 phase, they come with a regular plug even in CH where I have bought 2.
I have a washer and a dryer that are both three phase or two phase, depending on how you wire them. If you wire the washer in two phase it says the water heats up less quickly (which tbh with current low temperature washing probably makes no difference at all), no mention of any difference it makes to the dryer but I did it anyway since I have the right sockets.

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.
Indeed I've never seen it - but common in industrial settings, it's shame they don't have a neat equivalent of the T25 socket we have here.

Our lab at university had three phase cables all over the place, hence the need to have an adapter for normal office stuff.
