Apparently the guy did half the house then pulled out the washing machine and saw this.

Told the carers not to operate and said he could not continue until the installation had been "made safe"

The customer only wanted to know is it unsafe and was the PAT tester right to walk off site part way through and tell the carers not to use the appliances.

Socket is in a ring of three for the washing machine, dryer and dishwasher.

Circuit is RCBO Protected and tested fine along with Zs, no unsheathed cable exposed and cable entry to the socket ok IP rating wise, no mechanical damage or signs of heat damage.

Note this is not a beauty contest, i didn't install it and know it could be way prettier but I'd like to know under what reg this was condemned.

Other than the tests above, an inspection and a few more clips for appearance, I said its compliant. More could be done cosmetically, it could be chased in but it is not unsafe.

Thoughts please.
