Re: what to do with an old washing machine

Am I being over optimistic in thinking I'll be able to "install" this myself ? I'm assuming that I'll just 'reconnect' the new machine as per the old machine. (The old machine is 30 years old)
Normally yes, you just screw on the hose to the tap on your wall and then open gently to see if it's on properly with no leaks as fatmanfilms suggests.

Next get the drain hose from the back of the new machine and work out how it'll go into your waste pipe on the wall, clip the pipe around the U-shaped plastic frame supplied with the new machine and stick the end well down into the waste pipe.

Then check the electricity, it could a direct wired connection (mine was) or a plug, but the plug might be different to usual with square pins or even five pins (a T15).

And before all of this normally you'll want to empty your old machine or water before it is taken away, if you have a drain on the floor in the room then open the little filter/door at the bottom of the machine very slowly and the water will run out. If you don't have a drain, use a tray, pot etc.

Re: what to do with an old washing machine

Yes, our fridge was built in- and the new one is frost free and for guarantee to work, they said they wanted to ensure it could 'breathe' freely and would dismantle cupboard.

As said, and no spat on my part - huge difference between a new installation, without permission from owner/regie- is very different to just twisting on and twisting off, a new aplliance where the older one was properly fitted.

We did have our Zug washing machine replaced a year or so ago (paid for by our landlord). It's a digital machine and the technician had to do some 'programming' to the machine before he left.

Re: what to do with an old washing machine

Maybe with Galaxus it is curbside delivery.

Personally I order appliances from companies which deliver and install. They are plenty of them around. Next we may see the OP posting a picture of the electric box asking how to wire in a 230 v machine where the power is 400v as old machines were some 30 years ago.

As they say, to each his own. I do many things on my own, but things I know nothing about I am happy to leave to a someomeone who does.
