This dishwasher works wonderfully a and is being kicked out of our kitchen due to a remodel. We'd love for it to have a happy second life somewhere. Instruction manual included.

We live outside Portland Oregon.

Any takers?

we bought the identical KA new in Dec 1974, in that Coppertone color. We recently acquired one in Harvest Gold, but would love the Coppertone panels and the Manual, should it come to that. It's just too far to ship the whole shebang to NY!

You can tell if a person is an upgraded member by there post. There will be a green circled star next to their screen name when they post something.

Amy, check the "free" listings on craigslist if the subject machine isn't under the appliance heading there.  Too bad the OP didn't provide an e-mail address, which seems counterproductive to me.  There's no way for any of us to make contact so you'll have to hope he or she returns here to see if there's anyone interested. 


By the way, the subject machine has only one wash arm, so you will have to load it carefully so as not to obstruct the spray from reaching the upper rack.  Other than that, KitchenAid referred to this model as "A hurricane in a box" so it will do a great job for you if you manage to get it.

Me and the husband were going to PDX for some shopping on Friday. That would be a nice time for a hand-off methinks?

Oops - I thought I'd get a notice when someone replied..

Mea culpa, Amy & others. I just upgraded my membership. Call (503)490-6982 if you're still interested.

just load the lower rack properly and it'll do as good a job as any KA or other dishwasher for that matter... we love our KDC-17, it's our favorite of the 4 KAs we're now down to.

Dishwasher mission accomplished!

Amy & her husband picked up the KitchenAid dishwasher, affectionately known as Hobart, a couple of weeks ago.
