Take the plugs off and draw the cables out without the plugs on. If plugs are moulded they can be replaced with new 13A plug loaded with the corect fuse for the appliance. Some morons state that affects the warranty that is total rubbish as manufacturers are fine with plugs being removed for hard wiring ect. If it makes you feel safer you can call the manufacturers hot line to confirm if this is unclear in the user/installer handbook.
