How do I know which door I need?
Choosing the door for your appliance is not as hard as you might think. Every appliance will have a set width of around either 450mm or 600mm. When choosing your door, just ensure that it matches the width of the unit that it will be covering.
The appliances will also be supplied with a hinge system to attach the door. If the appliance is situated at the end of a run you will need a end panel to cover the side of the appliance.
- This dishwasher has the dimensions of (mm): 818 x 596 x 555
- (H x W x D) 818 x 596 x 575 mm.
- The 818 refers to the height
- The 595 refers to the width
- The 555 refers to the depth
The door needed to fit this dishwasher would be 600mm wide. If you were buying a slimline dishwasher with the dimensions of 818 x 446 x 550, then you would need a door which is 450mm wide.
