Friend has offered us theri dishwasher, it is only a year old but they have got divorced and both moved into properties with fitted dishwashers.

Measured the space we have (we have a huge spare space that we use for the bins and we fitted a cupboard door on to hide)and the measurements are fine (slightly tight on width as the dishwasher is 60cm wide and we have a width gap of 61cm when we remove the door) however no pipework into this space but it is next to the sink (the washing machine pipes go through a cupboard which is on the other side of the sink then onto space for washing machine) therefore would it be a relatively simple job to extend pipes from under sink to the dishwasher (am sure teh people who lived here before us had a dishwasher) My Dad is a handy man (builder) so would probably be able to do it (or ask a mate to do it for price) but can't get hold of Dad till tomorrow night to see if it is feasible

If your washing machine is connected under the sink you can get a Y connector so as to have two pipes from one so to speak. Shouldn't be a problem.
