DW itself is around 150 pounds, hopefully they will handle the crate carefully, KA DWs of this vintage damage very easily, I would have liked to see a bigger crate with some serious impact absorbing material at the bottom etc.


I would have the crate marked FRAGILE GLASS all over it.


Good luck and keep us posted.

I will see if he can put fragile on the box. He said that he build the crate so that the dishwasher could not move in the box and that he protected the face of the dishwasher with bubble wrap. I have a bad feeling the sides will be damaged from the crate, but I don't think the guy will do anything else to protect it. Being its in PA, its a bit far for me to go and pick up.

I hope the wash arm is immobilized so that it won't be knocked off and bounced around thus chipping the porcelain.

I don't think he did any of that, so maybe I just might cancel the shipment, call him and tell him keep the Paypal for the price of the dishwasher and move on LOL

My 2 cents

You might get lucky. I say roll the dice and take delivery. If he can immobilize the wash arm, great. If its too late, that will just add to the suspense. Worst case scenario is you end up with a parts machine.

I considered rolling the dice but the issue is being the machine alone weighs 150lbs UPS will change it to freight giving me a total of almost $500 in shipping. Unless one of you guys have an idea or two. Sometimes you gotta walk away LOL

The DW will be OK if they don't drop it too hard, don't worry about the lower wash coming off and chipping the tank it is not heavy or sharp enough to chip the tank.

is not the only game in town.. Have you tried using FedEx Ground or any of the larger freight carriers? Also, UPS does have actual freight service as well so you may want to call these vendors and see what they can do for you. The item is crated and ready to go so they won't have a problem picking it up. That's what they do for a living.

Also, there is a particular party that does many members favors by picking up their machines when she(I believe) is in the particular area so you may want to put out those feelers and post a new request. Probably best in the Super Forum.
