The best of modern technology meets the best of vintage technology in this video: AutomaticWasher.org’s @joeypete of Concord, N.H., put his GoPro Hero 5 camera inside his vintage Kitchenaid KDM-21 dishwasher to watch exactly how his “Hurricane in a Box” cleans. His KDM-21 is just a bit different from the KDS-21 that I just put in my kitchen!
Amazingly, in his first “Inside [the dishwasher] Edition”: He found that a washer arm was not rotating correctly. So he fixed it, and in this particular video, we get the full-on dishwashing action.
This shows the machine working properly after the lower wash arm was fixed. Now you can see how these machines got the nickname “Hurricane in a Box”. Rinse/Hold cycle with lower and upper views. Visibility was low. LOL. Enjoy!
As he says on his thread of videos — yes there are multiples — “Get out the Popcorn!” Howdy, hudee, we do have some fun here, don’t you think!
I’m kinda obsessed with the Imperial Forum — for washers, dryers and dishwashers more than 20 years old — over at automaticwasher.org.
