    What are the do's / don'ts with this? Ideally I'd like to put the washing machine outside where the tumble dryer is. is this a big no no?

    The mains stop tap is outside in the garage near the front, and the main drain is just outside the garage door. anyway this is possible or do I have to keep the washing machine in the kitchen?

    Cheers :)

    Apart from consideration about pipes freezing I can't see any real reason for not doing it.

    You'll need to make a connection to the drain (foul drain not rainwater drain!), for the waste. Couple onto the drain and fit a gulley or stub stack as required to accept the waste pipe from the machine.
