Custom model

This is a Kitchen Aid Custom model, without R&H cycle. Not sure if it's part of the 16 series. This was also a builder model in new homes built in the late 60s-earl 70s. A relative of mine had one in her new home and loved it. She threw everything in there and it all came out clean (large dinner party loads). She never complained once about anything being dirty and loved it's simplicity. Just push the timer dial and walk away!

Hope someone can rescue this!

Could this be built in? This is close to me. Would be neat to have but I need another dishwasher like a hole in the head. Lol

Sally Field had the built-in version of this in "Steel Magnolias".

Another Dishwasher?

Why not? You can never have too many dishwashers.

Funny you asked, because there's one in that kitchen I posted, just below this thread, but the other photo, not the one I posted. Appnut(Bob) pointed it out. I think it's more fully-featured...was this the same one Sally Fields had in "Steel Magnolias?". Amazing how you guys track stuff.

Good catch, Ken - and what kind of washer & dryer was in Melinn's laundry room?  ;-)
