Hi all,

So I took the motor out of my 1955 D&M Kenmore dishwasher that was burned accidentally due to a leak a few months ago. Sadly the only electric motor repair in the area refuses to fix it because it's too old. Anyone know of a good motor repair or have a replacement lying around? Thanks!

I would definitely call around until you find a reputable motor shop! "Old" is not relevant. It can't be any more complex than any other motor they might see come in their shop.

I should have thought of this before - I've had the same thing happen when taking a vintage washer or dryer motor to a repair shop.  So now I tell them the motor was from 'my father's lathe' and that my father was a machinist.  They repair the motor then....

An instance where a little white lie doesn't hurt anyone. :)
