Hey all you wonderful guys, Iím a loooong time lurker and lover of this site, hereís my first time dipping my toe into posting! So.......especially to all you UK collectors, my main interest is vintage dishwashers, and of course in the UK they are pretty rare! For Christmas when I was 15 (Iím 45 now!) my older brother bought me a mid 70s Miele, our familyís first dishwasher. It was awesome! So........ Iíd dearly love to own a Hoover AutoJet or SupaJet, I scour Evay but so far without success. Any advice from all you experienced guys would be much appreciated.
Thanks already, Paul

Autojets & Miele

Welcome to Automatic Washer Paul, hope you like it here.

Is this the style of Autojet & Superjet you are interested in? Or a later model





Do you recall the model number of your Miele dishwasher? I have examples of G500 & G550 which would be early I mid 1970s I think

Hey Al, yes, those are exactly the dishwashers Iím interested in!!!!! Iím pretty sure my Miele was a G550, circa 1975 (same year as me lol!)
It was a really good performer, cleaned everything that went into it perfectly.

Hi Paul

My parents bought a second hand Hoover Superjet machine in 1977 (I'd be 12 at the time), it was their first flurry into the dishwashing machine era. It didn't have a water softener and was prone to scale coming loose and blocking the spray arms. As it got older when it was on its wash and really hot, it would drip water from the door on the RHS. It was replaced with a new Philips 2000S machine in the early 80s which looked super cool in my eyes and much more advanced.

Here's the Philips 2000 brochure and a letter my mother received in 1985 from Philips!

Hope you enjoy.

Cheers, Alan

Iíve actually got a Phillips brochure of similar vintage covering laundry and dishwashers, Iíll scan it in when I get a mo.

Thanks Paul, if it has the Slimstar in it this was one of my favourite machines. Here's the two middle pages of the brochure Al posted to complete the Superjet thread for you.

Hi Al, I loved that Philips dishwasher, but it very regularly broke as the wires from the timer down to the bottom were literally put at 90 degrees every time you opened the door and they constantly broke in the process shorting and sparking (hence the eventual letter to all owners about the problem).

Cheers, Alan

Hi Paul.

Welcome to the club!

Autojets and Superjets - its quite ironic that the preserved examples are from the older ranges. I say ranges, cause the first two ranges were visually identical, apart from the titles slapped on the front.

Thankfully examples of both the earliest types are safe, in the hands of Mike and Al though, if my memory serves me correctly, its only a couple of years ago that the SuperJet surfaced.

I remember many years ago, walking with my dad around the village where I lived. On the road leading back into the village, sat outside a house, was a 4805 Auto-Jet, sadly awaiting collection by the council.
I had never seen one before - never knew they existed, but immediately struck me as a smart machine. I didnt open the door, so I never saw the rotating rack arrangement these machines have.

So pleased that years later, examples have been preserved.

The adverts below show the 4805 Auto-Jet and 4809 Super-Jet.
The previous models - 4804 and 4808 respectively - were identical, but can easily be differentiated from the machines in the adverts, as they said 'HOOVER' on the fascias, rather than the names ....

I wonder if any of the follow on range survives - the 4824 and 4834? Hopefully somewhere and one day an example of each will be saved.

Regards
Paul

Hi Alan.

Many thanks for posting the Philips brochure - a very smart looking series of machines.

Only discovered a year or two ago, via one single photograph, that the range was warmed over and got the black fascia treatment.
I think the photo machine is a 2000SX ...

... and they had the blue treatment originally.

Do you know if the all button model was introduced with this blue range, or was it a later addition?

Philips 2000 range of dishwashers

Hi Paul, I've looked through all my Philips dishwasher leaflets and I don't think they started off with the blue knobs, could be wrong through. The leaflet I posted a few days ago with the three machines show the range without water softener and soap dispenser, which to my mind show this is the start of their machines as quickly these items became quite standard.


Here's a scan of the last brochure I have before the range was really overalled to look different.

Cheers, Alan

VERY trusting indeed, Alan!

Thanks for the picture of your family's Philips dishwasher and those of it being taken apart!

Not wanting to induce thread drift into the world of washers on a dishwasher thread, BUT what washer did you have at this time?

Thanks also for posting the photos of your Philips dishwasher brochures - can I ask a favour - could you list the AAD model numbers for me? They are a touch difficult to make out clearly and want to make sure I get them correct.

Below is what I think was the replacement range and a series that I don't have any recollections of seeing in the shops. Surprising really, as they are very Philips and very smart (the one below is ADG824 E5).

Regards
Paul

Not forgetting HOOVER!

Here is the 'New Magic' AutoJet and SuperJet brochure from 1979, though I think the range will have been introduced in 1978, alongside the laundry range (could be wrong though).

In the past, I think people came to the conclusion that these were Bauknecht machines in disguise? Anyone able to confirm again?

Paul

AAD numbers

Hi Paul

No problem to scan the numbers again, here they are. I have all those next generation brochures too from Philips if anyone wants them.

(I'll put pictures of my Mum's Automatic on your other post).

Few more machines from the 80s

The Servis and the Electrolux I believe were effectively the same machine, the Bendix has the soap dispenser in a different place, the the controls bear a resemblance to the other two.

I had one of those Miele dishwashers. It was a G45. It didn't fit in my kitchen because it was wider than a modern dishwasher. I believe it was 67cm wide. I sold it to a guy in Germany who did a full restauration with a lot of Bosch parts. It became his daily driver.

Thanks for sharing!

Paul

Come on up, there is a G45 in my garage. And a Dishmaster - just about. And a SwanMaid ......

Actually I doubt the G45 holds any more than a standard dishwasher (its even wider with the external water softener). The Swanmaid is very closely based on early model US Kitchenaid dishwashers

Fab literature Chris, the tech info will be very useful for Richard and Steve as currently are servicing similar dishwashers ,

They look much more commercial than what we see of dishwashers today, and prob weigh a ton to move arond rather than today's dishwashers .

One of the earlier Swanmaids actually had a commercial copper kettle with a sealed lid for its water heating,..

Swanmaid Dishwashers

First of the scans. And now I remember why I havent scanned anything in years! This is an a4 double sided sheet dated Oct 1971 with information on a new model - the Swanmaid Select.

''The New Swanmaid Select, a development of the popular Swanmaid De Luxe, is modern in appearance and is designed to match and fit under the new metric height working surfaces as well as conventional kitchen units.''

Kenwood Dishwasher, 1978

dishwasherrules's profile picture
Although I am not British, I have some ads and brochures for UKís dishwashers and I gladly make a contribution to this interesting thread. I got this one on eBay 4 years ago, the eBayer who sold it claimed it is from 1978.
Iím not a fan of this dishwasher particular loading pattern - it looks pretty inconvenient to me, but I wonder what kind of performance this Kenwood machine provided.

Hi all.

We had two Swanmaid De Luxe's in my family, but they were an earlier version with a round metal 'on' button - would presume 1960s machines.

Thinking about it, one of the couples got married in 1969 and more than likely had it bought them as a wedding present, along with their Hoover 3221H Automatic washing machine. My uncles parents were the other couple and probably were the purchasers of the gift.

Image of the slightly earlier version below ...

Thanks Chris for posting the info on the Swanmaid products - really has stirred memories of the machines that I had contact with in my youth.

I have attached a colour image of the Swanmaid Select, which looks to almost be an older de Luxe model, but with a 'modern' dishwasher frontage grafted on to it ...

Attached below is the dishwasher report from Ideal Home magazine in 1978.

Contains a bit of info on the reintroduced Swanmaid De Luxe, which I retype below in case its illegible on the page:

'It has been on the UK market since the early fifties, disappeared briefly and has now come back (by popular acclaim it seems) under the marketing control of a new company who offer another version (the Select) with a choice of four programmes and an optional water softener'.
The 'new' company is Cygnet Electrical Co Limited.

Sadly it looks like the report will upload poorly and become pretty much illegible :-(

Enjoy as best you can.
Paul

Hi Ivan.

Welcome to the forum!
many thanks for posting the Kenwood dishwasher brochure - and what a great brochure!

A couple of years ago I was driving to work, which involves driving behind a branch of pretty much our last national, store based electrical retailiers (Currys) and thought I saw one of these Kenwood dishwashers dumped out the back of the store.
It was there for days - thankfully it turned out to be a freezer (or so I was told, though I still have my suspicions), with the narrow control panel of the freezer making it look akin to an A1414 dishwasher from a distance.

Thanks again for posting the brochure :-)
Regards
Paul

Ideal Home magazine in 1978

Aha! - the 'recommended detergents'...

I see from squinting at the uploaded pages, that the Swanmaid recommends 'Hygleam' detergent. The Colston recommends Colston's own. The Indesit recommends 'Finish' or 'Bio Finish', most of the others recommend either 'Sun' or 'Finish'.

But the Electrolux and Kenwood recommend... 'Freedom' detergent!


Confirmation in print at long last, that I didn't dream up 'Freedom' detergent. I'm pretty sure that it was made by Procter & Gamble.

Thank heavens for a bit of sensible information. Modern articles wouldn't go into that depth of info.

Really frustrating that when uploaded, the images degrade.
I promise you that, although photographs, the master images are completely legible.

When the new way of uploading images was introduced a few years ago, the ability to upload good quality, big images was removed (unless I am missing something - if so please tell me!). This is why I generally stopped uploading brochure images and stopped doing full histories threads, cause the visual results didn't make it worthwhile :-(

Anyway, living within the quality limits, I attach the 1979 Ideal Home magazine report.

Thanks for sharing those scans. It looks like Neff was asking a premium price for those relabelled AEG products. The AEG with more programmes is much cheaper than the tested Neff dishwasher.

Boo! They've dumbed that down... no mention of the recommended detergents, although the main text does mention Sun's anti-tarnish properties.

Dishmaster

Although there was the later tie up with Kenwood I am think that Dishmaster was a separate company to begin with as I have an instruction book which makes no mention of Kenwood at all.

Here is a Pathe video with also features a waste disposal, also marketed by Kenwood




1952

Electrolux Dishwasher

It was about 18 months after that posting that I had the pleasure of meeting Richard face to face. He brought down his Electrolux dishwasher (now working) so that Mike and I could see it in action.

Love that video but the way she dropped those trays in she might have well tossed the dishes from across the room like Lisa Douglas used to do!!  That looks like it would be a fun machine to play with.  Were those automatic or semi-automatic?

As the Miele 560 popped up at the start of a previous post and, as i had not used it for a while, I gave my G560 a run at the weekend - time for some Miele vintage goodness

Speak for yourself!"

To give it a bit of a challenge rice milk pudding that had been slowly cooked in the oven on the left, the one on the right was not as dirty as it looked. The Le Cruset had a lamb casserole in it

I used the hottest wash - Intensive 70

I will just comment that this style of Miele - late 70s/early 80s is my favourite of all machines. I also have a dryer of similar vintage that I use all the time.

I was a bit pushed for time yesterday so only got a photo of the top rack - no way would I ever lay claim to this being a Bobload

Automatic Or Semi-Automatic

There were versions of both, also with or without heater.

And I agree about the way she slams that basket in the dishwasher :)

Cultural vandalism. I'm surprised she didn't snap the basket retaining pegs off the sides of the tub.
