    Is it possible to fit an Integrated Dishwasher and an Integrated Washing Machine next to eachother?

    Designing a kitchen and I think that having a base panel in between will ruin the built-in look we're trying to create, so I wondered if it's possible , or if it is not recommended for any reason?

    Thanks for your help!

    No problem with side by side appliances.
    Don't understand you base panel concerns since intergrated appliances have kick panel as well?

    Thanks for your reply foxhole.

    Reason I wanted to check is a fitter once complained that I did not plan a base end support panel next to an integrated washing machine coming off of a corner base unit, because he said it needed to be fixed both sides (it was fixed to another unit on the other side).

    My concern was putting a support panel in between two integrated appliances so they can be fixed to it - I think it kind of defeats the object , beacuse you will see this 20mm thick panel in the middle of them both, which you won't get in between normal base units in the same run.

    The plinth is fine if they can go next to eachother, it will just run continuously across the bottom.

    It's being fitted with a Granite worksurface as well....so I guess as long as there is a baton at the back to help support the granite, it should be fine..

    Foxy, the op means a base end panel to be fitted between both carcasses, in which case wouldn't be hidden by either door and also the plinth would stop and start either side of the base end panel. I'm no kitchen fitter but if you were to fit the base end panel couldn't you notch the bottom out like a carcass so the plinth WOULD run through in one?
