Hi everyone! I'm looking for one of the old kitchenaid dishwashers made by hobart with the upper and lower spray arms. Im looking for a unit in good condition that needs very little to no work and I was hoping to keep it fairly local, Im around Hermitage,PA so if your in the Pittsburgh,Erie,or Cleveland area I'd love to see what you have for sale.

You'll need to get familiar with these three numbers:  18, 19, and 20.


The 18 series was the first to offer an upper wash arm, and they didn't stop there.  It has a little "constant rinse" sprayer on the ceiling too.


The 19 series is different from others because it didn't offer a heated drying cycle.


The 20 series was the last that was produced entirely under Hobart's ownership. 


Most KitchenAid afficionados consider the 18 series to be the ultimate in Hobart machines.


Model numbers to seek out will start with KDS or KDP, followed by 18, 19 or 20.
