Dishwasher Dirty/Clean Indicator (Kenmore Ultra Wash) by TechShopJim May 7, 2013

Description

This is a very large and visible "clean" or "dirty" indicator sign for your Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher.

This thing is designed to simply press fit snuggly over the top edge of a dishwasher door that is 1.730" or about 44mm thick, which is what our Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher model is. If you need it thinner or thicker, you'll have to change the model...you might be able to use the Scale tool to do this.

This sign does not interfere with the ability of the dishwasher's door to close and seal.

Here's how we use this indicator sign at our house:

When you are ready to run the dishwasher load, pop the sign off and flip the sign so the word "CLEAN" is right-reading, and push it on to the top of the dishwasher door. When you open the dishwasher to unload it, flip the sign so the word "DIRTY" is right-reading. Pretty simple, really. The hard part is training other people in your household to follow these simple rules every time!

I printed mine in silver filament on a Replicator 1. Then I used Sharpie pens to color the letters red (for "dirty") and green (for "clean").

Enjoy!

Hi Jim, I'm running into the same issue as Joe. Importing the file into SketchUp or Blender shows no model at all (no error, but no model either), and in Repetier-Host I get a "Loading of file ... failed"-error. Do you maybe have the model in a different format that you could share with us? Thanks!
Hi Joe...

Good to hear from you! I just saw Mike N yesterday at TechShop San Francisco, and your name came up at our family dinner last night. ;)

I just tried to open the STL in MakerWare and it came in just fine. I'm not sure what the problem might be. Sorry!
Very nice design! We've been trying to think of a clever way to deal with clean/dirty dishes without a magnet or arrow (that kids can easily move around).

I'm getting problems loading this into MakerWare (it only appears if I choose to not place it on the platform during load, but it's *huge* and if I try to manipulate it, it will just disappear completely) and importing this into SketchUp (returns "NaN" during import). Could there be a problem with your generated .STL?

Instructions

Just print it out. I used a Replicator 1. There is no support or raft required.

Optionally, color the letters with Sharpie pens.
