The Buyers Guide to Built in Washing Machines and Washer Dryers
These are available from virtually every brand. Generally machines are fully integrated although there are a few "semi integrated" models. The furniture door can normally be hung on both sides, but in most cases the drum door opens to the left only.
There are various spin speeds offered. They range from 1000 rpm up to 1600rpm, with the latter considered to be better as these machines are given an "A" drying class rating. To get an "A" energy rating, modern washing machines have been designed to use a cold water feed only. This means that they heat water as it is needed, rather than use hot water from the domestic supply.

Integrated - Fully or Semi?
Tumble Dryers and Washer Dryers are nearly always "Fully Integrated", although there are a few "Semi integrated" models available. "Fully integrated" is the term used to describe an appliance that is completely covered by a furniture door when installed. "Semi integrated" means that there will be a control panel visible above the furniture door. See below the examples below.
The Kitchen Appliance Store is a certified member of the Energy Efficiency Endorsement Scheme and pays particular attention to recommending energy efficient products. We display energy efficiency rating whenever they are available. Please call our helpline for the latest information and energy efficient models.
The majority of "built in" appliances have energy efficiency ratings. The only ones that do not are: Hobs, Hoods and Microwaves. The ratings are in alphabetical form. The best is A (sometimes even A+) and the poorest is G. Double ovens will have two ratings, one for the top oven and one for the bottom oven.
