Our old washer dryer has packed up its built in one.
The one the boss wants is 3 cm deeper than the old one.
(and a lot more expensive !)

Would this go straight in to the old space or wold it be a pain ie doors not lining up etc etc ?
Or should we get a new replacement with the same dimensions as the old one ?? Many thanks.

The replacement machine has to be a proper integrated appliance for the doors to fit and for it to align properly. If you forget the doors you could just put a normal machine under. A 3cm depth difference sounds far to big an increase to get it to fit right.

I'd say the biggest isssue is going to be the services. Where is the power supply (socket)? Where is the water and waste routed? New products all seem to be designed with the idea in mind that the water, waste and power socket will need to be located in the cabinet to the left or right of the washer or dishwasher. If your existing set-up is like that you'll stand a better chance of getting this swap to work

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
