    How is my integrated washing machine fixed into place?

    Normally you wind the feet down to push it upwards into the worktop to trap it in position. Front feet are adjusted with an adjustable spanner and rears have a long screw thread that sits at the front, there'll be an arrow to say lower/raise or +/-
