Zwecks offers installation services for all types of washing machines/dryers including wall-mounted dryer at an affordable cost.

Installing a washing machine offers homeowners many perks. From effortless cleaning of laundry to saving time from their daily schedule, a washer is particularly helpful when it comes to bigger families where washing clothes by hand becomes an impossible task.

Usually, people go for a washer and dryer together and they are installed at the same time. However, you do have the option to purchase them separately if you wish to.

Now, let's have a look at the cost of the washing machine installation and how they differ based on size and capacity.

Washing Machine Installation Costs in Australia

While washing machine prices vary depending on the type, capacity, and size, the national average cost to install a washing machine ranges from $650 to $2100.

However, installing a basic front-loader washing machine will cost homeowners around $700. But for a small top-load, the pinch on the pocket can go as low as $450, compared to a high-capacity washing machine installation with additional functions and smart features that will cost $3500 and above.

The Best Washing Machine Installation Process

To ensure that your appliance is installed correctly, you should consult a professional licensed plumber. There are several elements behind washing machine installation but overall the process involves the following steps:

  • Selecting the location for the washing machine 

  • Measuring the space so that the washing machine can fit

  • Adding in levelling feet if required

  • Uninstalling the old washing machine unit

  • Connecting the water supply hose and drain hose of the washing machine

  • Conducting a trial to make sure your washing machine has been correctly installed

Dishwasher Installation Costs in Australia

Dishwasher is one the most important appliances in the kitchen. Statistics show that more than half a million dishwashers have been installed in Australia over the last five years. Moreover, the number may rise another 200,000 in the incoming four years.

While installing a dishwasher may be expensive at first, it proves to be efficient in the long run. Homeowners can expect a standard dishwasher installation to cost around AUD 150 for a basic model and AUD 180 for a semi-integrated model. But wait, there’s more.

Installing a new dishwasher means contacting a plumber who will charge you approximately AUD 100 to AUD 150 per hour. Next, you have to install the pipes for the dishwasher which will cost you somewhere between AUD 500 to AUD 1500 depending on the material and shipment. Installing power units is another expense ranging from AUD 210 to AUD 300 including the electrician fees.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dishwasher Installations

1. What are the requirements for installing dishwasher machines?

Connecting a new dishwasher requires three connections: a power-cord connection, a water supply connection, and a drain line connection


2. Do dishwashers need to be professionally installed?

Installing a dishwasher can be a DIY job, but it is always best to hire a professional company to install a dishwasher for you, to avoid any plumbing issues. Dishwashers can cause issues in the long run when they are not installed properly.


3. Do dishwashers save water?

Contrary to popular belief, the dishwasher is designed to be more efficient than the way most of us wash dishes by hand. When you use your dishwasher every night instead of handwashing for just 10 minutes, you save 100 gallons of water a week. That's over 5,000 gallons in a year, or more than 80,000 glasses of water.


Washing Machine Installations

1. How to Install a New Washing Machine

  • Unplug Old Machine. First uninstall the old washing machine

  • Turn Off Water Supply. Turn off the water supply

  • Remove Drain Hose

  • Unscrew Water Feed

  • Position New Washing Machine

  • Refit Drainpipe

  • Push New Washing Machine into Place


2. What does a washing machine need to be connected to?

A washing machine is normally connected to the cold and hot water systems, but quite a few will work with just a cold supply while dishwashers usually only need a cold supply. If your machine is supplied from the pipe that feeds your kitchen tap, the water will be at mains pressure.


3. How long does a washing machine installation take?

It usually takes less than an hour to install a washer.


4. What is not included in the washing machine install?

This service does not include permits, plumbing, electrical, modification of cabinetry, flooring or walls, or removal of door frames, railings, wall hangings or other affixed obstacles in the pathway. The connection of internet-capable appliances to a home network is also not included.


5. Do I need to turn off water when installing washer?

Turn off the water. If there are no taps or isolation valves on the hot and cold water supply or they are not usable, you will have to turn off the mains water supply and then fit these. 


6. Can you connect a washing machine to normal taps?

You can connect one of the washing machine supply hoses to any faucet that has an aerator with external threads. The faucet needs to have an aerator for this adapter to work, and since only single-handle faucets do, you can only connect one of the washing machine's two supply hoses.


7. How do clean a washing machine?

  • Add Vinegar to the Washing Machine and Start a Cycle

  • Wipe Down the Lid and the Rest of the Washing Machine

  • Focus In on the Detergent and Fabric Softener Dispenser

  • Run Another Cycle with Baking Soda

  • Leave the Lid Open and Let It Air Dry Out
