I spotted this last week while running errands  - it was in the yard of a mid-century style home being ruin-o-vated in the next town over. I asked if they were tossing it, the crew said they were. I was free to take it they said, but the machine was inoperative.  Ha! That's never stopped me before... lol

It is more or less complete - the drain valve solenoid is gone and so was the water valve. However, knowing my luck both would have been shot anyway!

(Sorry if the pictures are upside down...

.they looked fine when I uploaded them...)

I figured I had nothing to lose, so I hooked up a power cord....

The dishwasher started right up! Timer runs, main motor seems good, and the heater/blower works!

This is going to be a nice winter project - I am way behind on my other restorations because I can't easily get to my Vermont po box... Hopefully I will have a post about a 57 Westy Laundromat soon....
