This is a very rare vintage James sweep flow BDL dishwasher. I just took this out of an old summer vacation cottage. It saw very little use over the years. It was last used at least 6 years ago and it worked fine. It has never had a problem. One owner family. It's a little bit dirty right now but not too bad. I did not clean it or even wipe it down at all. It should clean up very nicely. I did not plug it in as the cord is starting to get cracks in it and is getting brittle. It is on casters so I guess it could be called a portable dishwasher. I believe this is from the 1940s or 1950s. It has a very interesting design where you lift the top to load the dishes. Very cool and retro-looking.

Please send me a short note to let me know you are a real person and not spam. Include your name and phone # and I will call you or E mail you. If it's too short of a note or if you ask if the item is still available I will just delete you automatically . It is likely I can show this at your convenience as I have a very flexible schedule . If I think at all you might be spam or a scam I will immediately delete it and report you . Thank you very much.

I do believe this very model is in a POD.

Yowza!  I would love to get this - I will attempt to contact the seller and convince them that I am real person.  I am not sure sometimes.... LOL

I thought of you when I saw the ad. Something made me think you have one. Maybe I was remembering the clothes washer (don't remember the name) that looks somewhat similar.

Ken, I'll bet your thinking of the Launderall washer that loads from the top but has a cylinder like a front-loader usually would.  Still have that, but am afraid to use it... Look what happened to Ethel Mertz when she tried... LOL

Yes. That's what I was thinking of. Hope you can work out something with the seller concerning the DW and add it to the collection.

When I saw the ad I knew someone here would be interested. Glad you were able to make an agreement to get it.
