Not sure of the age, I'm sure you nice people will be able to tell me. 🙂 we have been using it for 13 years with few problems.
It came out of a remodel that my brother was doing when house flipping was so popular. He had it stored for several years before that! It has served us well.

I really just want to find out where I can get replacement wheels for the racks, or the bottom rack itself. Also the plug for jet dry compartment broke, but I'm not too worried about that
The bottom panel doesn't stay up anymore either but it's the wheels that give us grief now.
The model# is scratched up so I can't tell what it says.

Thank you for any information you can provide!

That looks like a KUDI21 or 22, so it's +/- 1990.


The bottom panels on machines from this period are weird and aggravating to secure.   There are tabs at the bottom of the panel with screws in them.  Remove those, lift and pull out the panel from the bottom, and check that the top tabs aren't bent up.  The challenge starts with hooking those top taps into place, then swinging the bottom section into place.  For me, it usually takes many tries and then things will suddenly line up without even trying.


Your best bet for replacement wheels or racks is finding a a donor machine (suffix 20, 21, 22, 23, or Insinkerator's "Classic" models) for parts.  They show up on craigslist now and then.  You can get a whole machine for far less than someone on ebay would charge for just a rack.

my home had that same model and it was installed in 1990.

Thanks so much for the information!
I really appreciate it.
I'll start perusing Craigslist and such.
1990, eh? So it was about 15 years old when we started using it.
I'd say that's a good free investment. I think I need to thank my brother again. 😃
