This is one NIB appliance I would not brother even hooking up, would make a great museum piece for an 80s kitchen.

. . .  a surviving relic (only because it has never been plugged in) from the haunted and eternally cursed area last known as "Electric Avenue."

The styling of it reminds me very much of the Beaumark appliances sold by The Bay department store here in Canada in the early 90's. Were these dishwashers cheaply made or just did not work well? Looks like it could hold a decent amount of dishes.

Baycrest appliances from The Bay pre-1978 would have been closer to this.  The Beaumark appliances were sourced from Camco, so the dishwasher from 1979 forward were Hotpoint clones.

Years ago, I pulled one like this from a friend's rental property, complaints of not cleaning and leaks.  The ridge of the tank that the lower rack rides on was riddled with rust holes.  A BOL plastic-tub Hotpoint was a welcome sight for the tenant.

To reply to Turquoisedude, I would say that the Viking dishwashers at Eaton's were exactly like this WCI dishwasher. My aunt had one with the same slanted control panel, probably made in the 80's. Here is a picture, but this advertisement is probably from the late 70's.

Judging by that heavy rope and this dock-side location they were actively looking for boat anchors.
