Sounds like a dumb question so please bear with me.
I have an old integrated dishwasher in my kitchen, bought by the previous owners of the property which I'm planning to replace. Its width measures 58.5cm and there is only a couple of millimetres gap either side within the kitchen units. I believe it's a whirlpool diplomat, but I don't know the model number without taking the door off or pulling it out from the units.
All the dishwashers I can find to buy are at least 59.5cm width. So I'm wondering:
a) do I have a very odd shaped dishwasher?
b) have dishwashers become wider the last few years?
c) are the stated dimensions not the true width? (doubtful unfortunately)
I don't want to order a new dishwasher only to find it won't fit in my kitchen without modifying the units.
Does anyone have an idea about this?
