My little brother is going nuts trying to get his washing machine into
the space under his kitchen worksurface. I noticed the machine has
rubber feet and the floor is rough floorboards.
I suggested he lay down hardboard, shiney side up and polish it with
beeswax or something.
Is there a clever technique for doing this sort of thing, we always
huff and puff and go red in the face when trying to get our MC in and
in it ;-) ---
Try the screwfix item D39158 - appliance roller set :
You can get pairs of roller frames which go under the machine, one either
side, extendable to fit the machine. As they don't go under the feet, but
beside them, they don't add much to the height. They have rollers in, so
just go back and forwards. Once in there are clamps at the front to stop
movement. They work very well.
They are £8.99 a pair from Argos.

Do you think they could be modified to work with the feet? I have 3
integrated appliances, which have even less room to work in than standard
appliances because you can't leave a gap down the side. However, these
appliances tend to have adjustable feet, rather than a convenient "bottom"
to rest on the sliders. The adjustable nature is necessary to get precise
control over the appliance height.
P.S. Why don't appliances have wheels/castors/rollers? The vast overwhelming
majority have to be slid under worktops. It doesn't seem too much to ask.
