Viking Dishwasher

Is there any value in a 2010 Viking Professional Series Dishwasher that has never really worked the way it is suppose to? Are there any vendors that take this stuff on trade? Should I part it out on eBay? I traded my neighbor for it [his wife didn't like it - there is no drying element] and the drain pump went out this weekend. I don’t want to put any money into it [it's the worst dishwasher we've every had]; but it feels like there needs to be some value in it. I guess the damn thing was over 1K when they bought it and I’ve got sausage in my freezer that’s older than this thing. Perhaps I should set it out on Island Lake and sell chances at guessing when it falls through in the spring? Winner gets 1/2 the pot? [actual fundraiser by the Lion's Club in my hometown, except it was a car on the Mississippi]. Will entertain interesting offers.

  1. It has no value. Junk it.

  2. Don’t be so negative. Brag up its virtues in a Free Dishwasher listing in the Green Bay equivalent of PDD.

  3. When I saw the headline “Viking Dishwasher,” I assumed some home-appliance manufacturer was making Minnesota Vikings products.

    And don’t say that’s a stupid mental leap to make. In the mid-1990s a Wisconsin-based company called Simplicity Manufacturing made a riding lawnmower called the “Packer Backer Tractor.” A Minnesota Vikings version hit stores in the summer of 1997.

    Having written about it at the time, I still have the cheesy quote from Simplicity CEO Warner C. Frazier:

    “These tractors look great and they perform as well as the teams they represent. They’re as tough as a linebacker, as agile as a wide receiver, and have the pinpoint accuracy of an All-pro quarterback.”

    Good grief.

  4. You could Freecycle it. Giving it away on Craigslist would be a waste of your time and sanity.
