The interior on this looks awesome! It looks like it has seen minimal use.

So few buttons.  I wonder if that's a KDC-18 or perhaps even a builder's model.

I didn't realize they made a model without a china guard or did it have one that got removed at some point in time?

21 series "custom" model

That is a 21 series machine as evidenced by the lower wash arm and filter configuration. This is the same machine as I put in my Mother in Laws condo before she passed away. I think she used it twice in maybe 2 years!

I installed the Stainless panels to match all the new appliances in the kitchen.

See the pics to follow.

It had rinse and hold,full cycle and light china. It preheated the water in the prewash of the full cycle and then again in the main wash which would occurred at the same time as the main wash of the light cycle. It had a start button that would start the timer running when you turned it to the cycle you wanted and an enery saver dry button.

For the record, the 18 series did not have the fill opening where it is seen in the pics posted by the seller. It was behind the top rack track on the left side.
here are the before and after shots of the 21 machine I mentioned.

interior shot:

This was a barebbones machine as it lacked the adjustable upper rack as well as the china guard.But it washed like crazy. I tested it out at my garage before bringing it there and it was a really good performer especially with the double water heat delay.
