I was painting a rental house today. The owner was clearing out the last tenant's left behind stuff. The first room was full of old clothes. I wasn't going to look in the second room but caught a glimpse of a dishwasher. Don't want the dishwasher but took the vacuum. Would the dishwasher be from 1990?

Camco was making GE.


McClary used to be associated to GSW and Easy in Canada but later it was part of GE. This dishwasher looks similar to some Hotpoint models we had.

That would be a fun way to learn a foreign language--the appliance terminology. I know nothing about the DW, but the panel looks sort of D&M-ish, although the unlabeled dial does look kinda GE/Hotpoint-ish. An interior shot would have been nice, too, but thanks for satisfying our appliance voyeur urges.

I'm not dishwasher-savvy enough to recognize the brand/manufacturer, but I'm totally impressed by how well-insulated that sucker is!

That McClary dishwasher is closer to a Hotpoint than a GE.  It looks like a mid-80s model; by then there was almost no difference between a GE, Hotpoint, Moffat, or McClary dishwasher built by Camco.  Well, except the price - they went from higher to lower in the same order (GE was the most expensive, McClary the least).

Canada had a weird amalgam of GE and Hotpoint at that time manufactured by Camco--they had the porcelain tub of Hotpoint but an adaptation of the upper-end filtering system from the Louisville plastic-tub GEs.
