Can i swap a washing machine with a dishwasher?


I have a washing machine in the kitchen, I would like to remove it and replace it with a dishwasher. Will I need to do anything plumbing wise or will I just be able to connect the dishwasher to the washing machine feed and waste?

Thank you!

Yes assuming that the appliances are of traditional type you should find this a simple switch, however be sure to check the required water feed for the dishwasher when reinstalling, most likely a cold feed only ! if there was a hot feed to the previous washing machine appliance then simply terminate this at the service valve

Yes assuming it’s the same feed to the appliance if not I’d fit a check valve to stop contamination to the water
