Is this one worth a look? Not sure if the KD-12's were any good, but I love the style and color.

Expect issues, is all I can say.

That poor machine has been ridden hard and put away wet.

Due to the short wash time and relatively cool wash water, they are better at handling fresh, soft food soil, not harder to remove soil that has had a chance to dry on the dishware. No one will argue that early KitchenAids were well-constructed dishwashers, but Hobart's background in food service applications did not serve them perfectly when it came to designing a machine for home use. Food service applications for dishwashers meant machines that were used intensely for load after load of dishware with fresh food soil. The machines without hot water booster heaters were heated by the first load and stayed hot through the meal serving hours. Higher capacity machines had gas-fired, electric or steam boosters to maintain high water temperatures and a back flow system where the final 180F rinse water flowed back into the first rinse tank to keep the rinse water hot and clean. The rinse tank flowed backward into the wash tank to help maintain its temperature and the wash flowed into the prewash tank, if one was present. Their home machine was not as well thought out. The detergent dispenser offered in the 14 series Imperial and Superba machines was a beginning of improvement in dealing with the realities of home dishwashing, but other manufacturers were already offering machines that held more and washed better.
