Harvest Gold coloured range, hood and a Potscrubber 1200, with original GE literature


White coloured Potscrubber 1200


Very nice condition Potscrubber 1200, with STAINLESS Front panels no less!


Potscrubber 1100. Perhaps a little shabby, but the 1980's timer knob GE used is just so timeless


Machine from the 900 series. Far better shape, inside/out. Although it is missing the true "Super-Racks" - in this case meaning the dreaded hump-rack is not there it obstruct your wide glasses and mugs!


Moving down even further, we have a Potscrubber 600 series machine. Not a big fan of the faux woodgrain on this model. Looks like the only cycles you'll "ever need" are "Potscrubber" (Or "Potsmasher") and "Normal." As an added note, whilst the Non-Super style racks look restrictive, I suppose they allow better washing of tall items like cookie sheets, broiler pans and the like. Just don't put your Champagne glasses in there ;-)


Another 600 series:


And another 600. Must've been a popular machine in new homes. This one also has an eBay listing (Will not post here. "Google it" yourself)


Yet another:


An interesting series, the Potscrubber 640, with an explanation of the line from member "bwoods," 

The 600 model did not have the passive filtration system, even through the 900 series there was no filter. They also had the metal wash-arm.

The exception was the 640 model, which you did not find in the GE Appliance Catalogue. This was a speciality model for select stores, that did offer a few extra features such as the passive filtration system.


Not surprisingly, the absolute Bottom-of-Line "Potscrubber 500" (which didn't even include the famous "Potscrubber" cycle) is nowhere to be found in "Craigslist land." I suppose those machines will already be in dishwashing heaven (or perhaps the banishing place, where all the bad machines go...)


Here is an image I've collected from the forum here. Thanks to member "bwoods" for posting this sometime back in Launderess' thread "Another Potscrubber Dishwasher in M.D."

If I had the room for a dishwasher collection, I'd like to have one of the 1200 models in it. That would be fun to play with.

Wasn't there a model made briefly that replaced the tower with an under-the-top-rack wash arm? Since I'm fantasizing, I'd like one of those, too.

I'll have to look, but I think I have a Potscrubber  portable sitting in my back room.

I believe the Potscrubber II design switched over to the wash-arm on their two TOL machines. The other machines still retained the tower-wash. 


Some time back another member located one of those Potscrubbers and picked it up. That was the GSD1050, the Rapid-Advance Model (Including Two "Hi-Temp" washes too and actual "Push to Start" button).

two arm wash systems

I don't ever recall a two arm wash system on the 2200, 2800, or 1200 GE dishwasher. If one is out there though, I would be all over that like a Cyrus offspring on Beetlejuice.

These Machines

Are from the "Potscrubber III" line (well, after that label, but still). So you won't find a 1200/2200/2500 or 2800 with that wash system. The racks wouldn't never support it on the models with Super Racks.
