New Swiss dishwasher

hi,
My trusty old Swiss dishwasher has expired big question is where I get a new one as it is the standard Swiss 54.5 wide not the 60cm normal European size.
I did find this place www.nettoshop.ch - are they any good or is there somewhere better? Local electrician wants 2800chf !!!
Is it normal that they deliver to your apartment and remove the old appliance?

Thanks

Stephen

On that website IIRC if you add the product you're interested in to your shopping cart, you can then choose if you want delivery to a) the sidewalk, b) your flat, or c) your flat with installation of the new and disposal of the old machine, or e) perhaps some other option as well, and thus adjust the delivery/installation options to your needs.

topten shows you the most energy-efficient models which you can enter in toppreise to find the best seller.

Re: New Swiss dishwasher

Must be a new policy then, because they couldn't do the installation of a new oven/hob for me last year. I eventually got the same model via my local electricity supplier. Cost a bit more, but I couldn't find an electrician who'd install the Nettoshop one for me. Plenty of other places to look too though: MediaMarkt, Coop Bricolage, Migros DIY, Fust, Interdiscount XXL, Conforama, etc.

We got a new one the other day. I got it from Microspot - delivery was in about seven days and was free.

They bought it up to our apartment and down some stairs into our kitchen.

I fitted it myself and carried the old one up some stairs myself then down to the car and drove it to our local recycling place for free disposal.

I saved about 850 CHF doing it that way rather than getting it from Miele and getting them to fit it.


Miele do the Swiss sizes as well as the Euro standard.

Miele, to their credit, didn't charge me for the visit to check my old one out and provide two quotes - for a repair, and for a swap for a new one.

Don't get one delivered to the pavement unless you have a sack barrow - a new dishwasher is much heavier than an old one because of the wooden packaging.

Re: New Swiss dishwasher

Before ordering anything, I would check which Swiss Norm machine you need.
Is your old one a 76cm high and is sitting on the plinth? Or is it a 82cm which stands on the floor? The "Zug" is 76cm and the "Miele" is 82cm for eg.
If you are a DIY type then I would try "Nettoshop". But first make sure you do'nt need a plumber (check if the stop tap is not chalked up).
The new machines are all 220-230 volt, this should not give any problems.
