Our newly purchased home has Superba dishwasher. I was told by the appraiser that the unit was junk.

To my suprise when we moved it, it seems to work perfectly. Super hot water.

The unit does not have a utensil basket. Was there one in these units? Are replacements available?

Also the vinyl is peeling in some areas of the racks. Are replacement racks available?

Do you know the model number of the machine? That will help in case others have extra parts for sale.

Ebay tends to have used parts for sale. Here is a start for the utensil/silverware basket.

Not Junk!By any means!

Your sales agent doesn't know anything about dishwashers! This is considered by many to be one of the best dishwashers ever made by Hobart. It is far from a quiet machine but we can help you tame the noise and it may well give you many more years of great service and get the dishes washed rinsed and sanitized in less than 1/3rd the time the new machines take to wash and dry.

I have plenty of silverware baskets for your machine(please post a picture of the one you do have). There were a few different styles.

Racks may be harder to find. I parted my 18 out a year ago and they sold nearly immediately, but some other members may have a set to part with.

The front panels(from the pictures) seem to be the single color wrap around panels. There are what are called "Vari-Front" panels which came with two sets of panels inside of a stainless trimmed panel which at the time had a white, black, almond and harvest gold panel set you could install by flipping them in and out of the frame. You could also put Stainless steel panels in the lit or custom wooden doors to match your cabinets of a custom painted or laminate panel. Unfortunately, I tossed the panel kit I had been keeping for about 10 years with nobody wanting it a few weeks ago. Again someone may want to sell you one of their spares.

There are many knowledgeable members here who will be more than willing to assist you in keeping a great machine running for many more years. Just reach out.

I have a few utensil racks that might work for you.  I have many other parts available and would hate to see a fantastic dishwasher such as this go to the scrapper.  My email address:  I can take pics of what I have and hope I can give something a good home!
