Hi all,

I have a great KitchenAid Superba. Works like a charm, but we're remodeling kitchen & adding all water-saving/low energy appliances. The water bills here are outrageous!

I have original manual with dishwasher.

Happy to take more photos!

Hi Lorie,

It's too bad you have to get rid of it. The wood panel in it really makes it "pop" Don't know about the rest of the cabinets, but that color and grain in the wood really looks nice.

But you didn't come on here to talk about cabinets. I think you're machine was known as a "hurricane in a box because of its powerful cleaning action. When loaded properly it would almost clean anything. Don't let anyone cart it off if you can help it. It's too nice of a machine to end up as scrap.

Thanks Brian!

It's been a great dishwasher. The folks who were the original owners were meticulous with all of their appliances. I should post photos of the oven and fridge. They are both much older from the original house (1955).

That was my mother's first Kitchenaid dishwasher when I was 3 years old.  I can still hear it running.
