That is the dishwasher my family had in the house in Cedar Falls when I was growing up. My sister and I would put stuff animals in the green upper rack and would spin them round and round and round. :)

It was built in, and I do remember my Dad going to Sears to get some parts in the late 80's so he could get it running again. They ripped it out around 93/94 or so.

That Is....

....An upper-MOL unit, a model or two beneath the Lady Kenmore. The clues are the array of pushbuttons and a dial (LK's had pushbuttons only, plus lighted cycle indicators - no dial at all), and the full-width hose console at the rear of the worktop - lesser machines had a smaller console. It's about a 1972 or '73 model - Sears started using plastic for hose consoles in, I think it was, 1974, instead of the extruded aluminum seen here. It's porcelain inside. Thin porcelain, mind you, but porcelain.

What's odd here is that I haven't seen a machine before that was so high up in the line that has a Formica top instead of the maple top.

For a Sears machine of the era, it's nice, but it's still a D & M-built dishwasher.

OMG! THAT is the dishwasher that the neighbours across the street from us had when I was a kid. When I moved out of the family home in the 80s I remember telling Mme. Martin, the owner of the house and dishwasher that if she ever moved, I wanted it.
Well in 1995, my father called me to say that she was moving and apparently had a dishwasher for me, so he bought it and rolled it across the street into his garage.
I was very, very, very disappointed when I found that the dishwasher was in fact a late 80s Kelvinator (WCI) and not the Kenmore... I cried, what can I say...

Could it be that that is a Canadian-spec version? The reason I ask is that the Formica top is damned odd on such a high-end machine here in the States. And New Jersey is far enough North where Canadian stuff does trickle down across the border from time to time....

this was indeed 3rd from TOL. Next model up had the water temp lights as well as the cycle buttons were silver looking rather than green color. Otherwise the same machine.

If you want a good replacement for your GE.  The best bet would be a Whirlpool Powerclean/Kenmore Ultra Wash portable.  Or else a KitchenAid Superba portable of the 18 series or newer.  Another strong performer would be a Maytag Jetclean with the 21 jet Power Tower.
