    Pipes at back of cabinet in the way of the dishwasher

    Kitchen Fitters

    We’ve just ordered a dishwasher (we don’t currently have one) and paid extra for them to install it. The only cabinet we presume the slimline can fit in (and there’s a switch for it above) is a slim cabinet between the sink and oven.

    We cleared out the cabinet today with intentions of removing it (AO said the space needs to be ready for the dishwasher to be installed) however the oven has a pipe coming out of it which juts out into that cabinet space at the back and will prevent the dishwasher from fitting in.

    How do we go about getting around this? What sort of tradesmen would I need to request to sort out the oven pipe and cabinet for our dishwasher? It’s due to arrive next Friday!

    "Hi Ellie,
    First of all the dishwasher fits into a space and not a cabinet. There is never room for pipes behind a dishwasher so it looks like you will need a gas fitter to re-route the feed pipe to the cooker.
    Regards,

    "Hi, you need to get a qualified gas engineer to see if it’s possible to move the pipe first before taking the cab out!"

    "If the pipe is coming from an oven, then it’s a gas supply pipe, you need a plumber who is gas safe registered to move it. Bear in mind where the pipe comes from as it may end up being quite a big job."

    "If it's a gas pipe you need a gas safe plumber to remove or reroute the pipe, if its water or waste pipe any plumber can do that for you."
