Direct GE clone, Plastisol inside, racking system from Hell and probably needs a Depends left under it.

For free it's overpriced.

Not exactly a direct GE clone - this was built at the factory in Chicago, porcelain interior and door liner.  The upper rack never bothered me much for loading, it was quite similar to the standard racks in GE branded plastic tub machines, but that lower rack is all GE.


GE wash system, no filter and the predictable results are a given but the real joy, as Eddie mentioned, is the noise.  With the metal- porcelain tank and those huge ropes of water swirling around inside makes for a real shoulder-hunching treat.  With this one being a portable, the torture must be nearly unbearable.


Still, it's free and if Old Mother Hubbard didn't have a dishwasher, she'd welcome it with open arms.

I had two of these.........

in two different dishwasherless rentals, and they did a fine job. This was before this hobby, and I didn't pay a ton of attention, and I did hear a lot of noise, but my dishes always came out very clean after sitting for 3 or 4 days. For someone not in this hobby, and not with a big budget, it's a fine working dishwasher

That Upper Rack...

Is sort of similar to my KA Regency.

I actually like that rack. In the Regency the rack tilts.

I almost want to say I prefer that rack to the 15-23 builtin upper racks.

I Stand Corrected:

On the interior - I do remember that John combo52 has mentioned the Hotpoint porcelain liners before.

But that lower rack brings back painful, painful memories. And I never knew a GE version that didn't have problems with leakage sooner or later, usually sooner.

I've seen hundreds of these over the years, mostly in rentals and builder's starter homes.  I remember a few with the pot-scrubber cycle but most were a simple slide switch for drying heat on/off.


You're right about the upper rack, Eddie.  I always thought it was relatively easy to load and unload and held a ton of stuff.  The lower rack.  Ugh.  I had a plastic-tub Hotpoint in one of my condos with the deluxe upper rack but it seemed like there were always dishes left over after the machine was BobLoad full.  It was that lower rack, losing almost so much of it's capacity to the tower bump and pop-up hole.

I look at that lower rack and cringe! That damn saucer tower. UGH! Very poor rack design. Couldn't hold larger pieces and you really can't bobload the bottom rack completely without giving up some washing access to the upper rack regardless of that tower. I'm glad the one in my apt. finally gave up the ghost and the prop. mgmt. had to replace it.

At least this machine had the upper rack lowered so that it was not up at the top of the tank where normal size tumblers were sheared off by the top of the tank if loaded anywhere other than the extreme left and right sides like in earlier Hotpoint machines.
