This is for sale locally and wondering if its old enough that it's a real Whirlpool? Looks similar to the 2001 Gold Series WP I picked up this past summer except for the control panel. And that the delivery of water to the upper was arm is thru the center tower rather than up the back of the tub like in the 2001. Just wondering if it's worth getting. Its advertised as working. Getting rid of it due to kitchen renovation.

I have nearly the same Whirlpool, maybe a little older. My 1995 has washed dishes just fine all these years with no problems and top rack comes out fine, knock on wood.

Very Good DW

With no computer to FU and cause an otherwise good DW to hit the scrap pile.

Thanks for the info everyone. I haven't gotten a call back all weekend so I guess it was sold. Too bad the seller couldn't have had enough courtesy to call and say it was no longer available. And also to delete the ad so people wouldn't continue to see it and inquire. I realize both would be so time consuming and exhausting! Seems there are more aholes all the time today which equates to less and less common courtesy!

It's back

Just came across a new posting from last night for the Whirlpool. Haven't attempted contact yet. Could have had it sold two weeks ago if they replied to my message. We will see.

Its mine

Went and got it today. Very good condition but needs some cleaning. Serial number dates it to 10/2001. I see there's a slight coating of lime/calcium in it. What would be best to remove?

Lime from hard water use

Depending on how soft your water is - using a good strong detergent like cascade boil out will wash off a light layer of calcium in just a few washes. Lemi-shine would work too.
