Hi all

I have an integrated washer/dryer (i.e. Smeg WDI12C) that I want to replace.

I have two questions:

1. If I change to another brand (e.g. Zanussi, Beko), I am not sure if the panel door hinges are in the right locations. Has anyone been successful in changing a Smeg washer to another brand without ruining your panel door? It seems like for Zanussi/AEG the hinge distance is 416mm but the hinge distance for Smeg is 413mm - would the 3mm be an issue?

2. If I keep to Smeg, I noticed the depth is existing washer is 550mm but all the new Smeg has 560mm+20mm (http://www.smeguk.com/product/wdi147/). Is the 20mm the panel door? Also is 3cm a big difference in depth. I think I have a standard kitchen depth.

Any help much appreciated! Thank you in advance.

 No water into your washing machine?

If your washing does not fill up with water then it is likely that your water supply is faulty or the water fill valve in your machine is. Find replacement water valves in our store including many low cost compatible fill valves for all major brands such as Hoover, Hotpoint, Beko, AEG and more

Does your washing machine stink?

If your washing machine stinks, smells bad or emits strange odours it is most likely to be caused by bacteria build up in the washer. To clean this we recommend using Affresh that you can buy here to clean out the bacteria. And for more detailed advice on washing machine odour you can read our article all about smelly washing machines here
