A Ling-Temco dishwasher at Peggy’s aunt’s house

Peggy sends this live example of a recessed Ling-Temco dishwasher – how cool! Remember this original post of a Ling-Temco ad from 1961?

Peggy writes:

My Aunt does not use the dishwasher but said it was put in when the house was built in 1960….(she)is in her eighties lives in Dunkirk, New York which is located on Lake Erie. I told her that a collector would love to have this dishwasher but she said she likes it there. It kills me to think the next homeowner will probably throw it away.  I may ask her to will it to me. My husband and I hooked a digital converter box to her awesome old Quasar console television which still gets a great picture. They don’t makes things like they used to!

    I WANT one!!! So cool! And Peggy, dear, why do we not have more photos of your aunt’s house? It looks like the kitchen cabinets alone are worth a closer look; I like the handles/pulls and the laminate – original, I presume?

    That is awesome. Hopefully you can get that before your aunt ever sells her house. If you want any more information about it, theres a website http://www.automaticwasher.org Its a group of people that like or collect vintage appliances. Mainly washing machines and dishwashers. I’m sure there are a lot of people on that site that would love to see your aunts dishwasher.

    Also, would love to see a picture of the cooktop stove, that is directly above the dishwasher. Looks like a G.E. from here.

      Definitely a GE cooktop. We had one in the first house I remember living in. Mom would pop that chrome cover off the switch bank to clean it; it’s a wonder she didn’t electrocute herself! I too would like to see more of the house if the owner isn’t averse to a bunch of strangers oohing and ahhing over it. 🙂
