I moved into a house recently that has a GE Rinse-Glo automatic dishwasher. I'm guessing the dishwasher dates from the late 1960's, which is when the house was built. My silly question is: does the Rinse-Glo have just one water supply line, which I'm guessing is hot water?

Rinse-Glo is the rinse agent.  You fill the dispenser reservoir, and set the little knob so that when it goes through the final rinse, it trips the dispenser to inject some rinse agent.  


Can you post a picture of that GE dishwasher?

Yes, hot water only. GE avoided using an electric rinse agent dispenser for many years by having one that had to be "cocked" by the operator each time rinse agent was wanted then a cam on the timer tripped it in the last rinse.

This machine has not rusted out in all of these years? Amazing. Was it used at all?

Little if any rust; I have not actually run it through the cycles.
The motor does come on when the lever is moved to the close position.

The sad truth is, I can get by without a dishwasher, and I do need space in the kitchen. I also need electrical circuits and the Rinse-Glo takes up a dedicated 20 amp circuit. So I hate to admit it but I will probably remove it.
