Am having a new kitchen fitted and my fitter put the new Miele fully
integrated dishwasher on a thick wooden board. He said "that way I
dont have to adjust the legs"

Is that acceptable that a machine rests on a wooden board instead of
the legs which were supplied with the machine. What could go wrong ?
etc etc

Should I have him refix it with the machine standing on legs ?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

He just left the legs inside the machine - the dishwasher rests on a
piece of thick wood.
apparently many kitchen fitter do it this way.
however, should there be a problem with the machine or a leakage, it
will not be easy to slide out the machine - surely if the machine were
on legs this would be easier ? +++

thank you +
I will ask him to extend the legs - if they are not long enough he can
put a thinner piece of wood on the kitchen floor - if necessary nail
that into the kitchen floor or fix it so that it does not slide.
If the machine is on legs it would be easier to pull out if this is
many thanks for your help

Especially if it's a snug fit between the adjacent units, it can be very
hard to push the appliance in without bending or breaking the extending
legs; likewise removing the appliance. Either that, or the feet on the
legs get snagged in your vinyl floor and rip it (and get stuck).

Stand the legs in four of those little plastic carpet procetor cups
you can buy to put under table legs.

Squirt a small amount of washing up liquid on the floor and you'll
find the appliance slides into place like a dream!

The washing up liquid eventually dries out and gets washed/hoovered
