Washing machine height = 109,22 cm. Therefore will not fit.

Refrigerator length  = 99,06 cm OK

                    depth  = 81,28 cm OK

                    height  = 175,26 cm. Will just fit.

Dishwasher length = 88,9 cm OK.

                    depth = 88,9 cm OK

                    height = 99,06 cm. OK Will fit
