I recently wrote about how to reduce the height of a washing machine or washer dryer so that it fits under a worktop (Reducing the height of a washing machine to fit under a worktop). The article contains links to some height reduction kits but by no means all. Height reduction kits are an accessory that few independents sell because there’s relatively little demand for them.
A Washerhelp user who read my Miele washing machines review and had bought a Miele contacted me recently to say how delighted she was with it but she wanted help finding a height reduction kit. She’d already found one on Miele’s web site but it was way too cheap (£29.90) and she was worried it wasn’t what she required as there was no photo available to reassure.
She was apprehensive because, “the old height reduction plate I have for my old Zanussi cost about £60-70, 8 years ago”. I must admit I too was puzzled because Miele washing machines are the best, but they aren’t cheap so you’d expect accessories to be more expensive.
She was able to report back to me after ordering one that it was indeed what she required and fitted easily. We were both pleasantly surprised that this accessory was much cheaper than many really cheap brands. When people have often stretched themselves financially to buy a high quality product it’s not nice to have to fork out a lot more for an accessory and congratulations to Miele for pricing the kit very reasonably.
