This one is really rare. I looked up about it on the link below. Never knew Kaiser made dishwashers.

Reply to Runematic and Westy2---

Thankyou for sharing the photos and history information! That is really interesting. The "paperwork" in the bottom of the rack in the photo hides the center post---is there an impeller? What are the aluminum looking cylinders with all the holes spread around one side of the bottom? i.e. how did it work? Thanks! -Steve

Gyra, no impeller, just a center post with pressure operated springs to raise or lower the basket. The cylinders go ontop of the 7 jets in the bottom of the dw to disperse the h2o. It mainly operated on high water pressure with timers to control the cycle. The paperwork is the users manual, installation instructions, an ad for the CHAT soap that Kaiser made and sold for it, the original warranty certificate dated Aug '47 & marked installed July '48, loose parts list, etc. All the paperwork is still with the unit.

I realy like this dw - I remember in the 60's seeing one in a house & garden magazine. It was actually built into the counter. The best part is the window. I wonder if the wash performance was decent.

Fascinating!! to say the least. I'm assuming it only had one rack to hold everything you would wanna put in there. Hmm

Fascinating story and machine. This reminds me of those countertop carosel dishwashers seen on ebay now and then, but with jigsaw and plumbing. With my water pressure, that machine probably would work just fine - and be quiet running with no motor/pump. Great piece of history there - thanks for the pics!

Very cool dishwasher! It runs by water pressure only, it must use quite a bit of water, but it would be fun to see it run!

Hard to believe that, in today's dollars, that DW cost over $1200!

Where did the detergent go? How was it dispensed into the load?
