Hi y'all! New to posting here - huge fan of the site.

Recently bought a 1930s house with a 2010-ish remodeled kitchen. Much to our delight, the kitchen has a KitchenAid Superba that was from the 1970s remodel of previous owner. We are told the previous owner rarely used, and the machine is in pristine condition.

It's not draining right now. We'll go through the steps to check drain tube and sink air gap tomorrow for clogs, but we're bracing to replace drain solenoid. In order to source the correct part, hoping y'all can help me with the KDS model number - thinking it's either a 17 or 18!

This looks to be a KDI18 - it should read on the door opening!

Ah, it's an Imperial!

Thanks so much, y'all! We haven't moved in just yet so am going off of the listing photos. Super helpful!

Anyone happen to know the part number for the drain solenoid :)?!
