    Hi all - I have moved into a house where the previous occupants have had the washing machine outside - there are these pipes within the kitchen. Can I just connect up to these or do I have to make any checks/do anything to make these safely usable?

    I also cannot see a power outlet to connect up to - would I have to make an opening in my worktop to feed a washing machine cable through or am I better having a new socket put in or some other arrangement?

    You will obviously need an electric socket to plug the machine into ,but you also need to consider where you can connect the waste pipe from the machine into your waste pipe work. I can't make out from your pics ,if the isolation valve is for a washing machine ,I don't think it is. It does not appear to be 3/4 bsp thread ,looks more like 1/2 inch.

    That threaded item is an isolator with the end missing. You need a proper appliance tap fitting instead.

    Did you really mean 'outside'?
