This has to be a joke or someone who just put one too many zeros in their Auction starting price.  Good luck getting $500 let alone $5K.

This model has the exact same buttons as the model that was in my new house bought July, 1980.  Mine didn't have 3rd level wash; had those dish loops in the bottom rack; forced air drying.  I'd say this is like a 1982 to 1984 model.

according to a google search that machine was manufactured by DM(Frigidaire) (The frigidaire was in parentheses.)

This is actually a late 80s or early 90s models. All the early 80s had a porcelain tub and metal wash arms! These later models were actually garbage quality compared to the earlier ones!

D&M Pile of $hit

Only worth scrap value at best or around $50 tops. These units can and will produce very clean dishes. But usually for a short time until they fail catastrophically. Often causing a flood or electrical fire.

By the serial #, these DWs do a fair job washing and a POOR job drying, it could last up to 300-1000 loads if you are lucky before you have serious problems, it would be good for a museum of appliances that ruined American manufacturing.
