    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone could please help us source a full size freestanding dishwasher with a depth of 57 or 58 cm depending on how generous the recess/overhang is at the back. The dishwasher should also be flat at the front no concave door or sticking out handles.

    The issue we have is with the kitchen layout, the dishwasher is near the corner and if the dishwasher sticks out we are unable open the adjacent drawers.

    We have Kenwood KDW60B13 in place but it's been fixed once and is malfunctioning again so it is time to replace it. Unfortunately this model is no longer available.

    Preferably we would like silver or black but open to options as long as it fits. Re-arranging the kitchen is not an option.

    Any help would be much appreciated,

    Thank you

    Remove the plaster at the back of the dishwasher to give you the depth you need?

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    Is it ok to operate it like that? Also I worry that removing that will not give it enough clearance as that will make space in the middle but how far back it gets pushed would be limited by the frame. I haven't seen too many dishwashers without the back but the ones I have it appears that the edges would still occupy the same amount of space.

    We have found a Gorenje dishwasher that has 58 depth.

    Gorenje GS62010SUK 12 Place Freestanding Dishwasher - Silver:
    Product Dimensions: (H)850mm x (W)600mm x (D)580mm

    We have also contemplated an integrated or semi integrated too; but this also require panel, plinth and handle installation. We would probably just assume the contrast here as matching our existing kitchen would be near impossible.

    Do you know if you have to cut panels to size for semi integrated dishwashers or are pre cut panels available?

    Thank you

    I don't think you understand what I mean......

    I meant remove the plaster on the wall to take it back to brick at the back of the dishwasher to give you the depth you need so you can buy any dishwasher

    I didn't mean remove anything off the dishwasher .....

    Thank you, yes I had misunderstood you - unfortunately that's not possible due to pipes and electrics running at the back. I think we will go for an integrated one.
