Is anyone familiar with this model #1698582 Kenmore? Would it be an old Ultra Wash?

Thanks :)

That is a Sears' Best UltraWash from late 1980s early 1990s.  Friends from church had one.  I drooled over it until the control panel fried itself and they replaced it with a mechanical Maytag MDB4100.

Thanks Bob

I'm going to pick it up this weekend. Do they have a plastic tub? How about washing performance? Does it have 3 washarms bottom, middle and top?

Thanks :)

Gio, this is a PowerClean at heart.  Enough said!  Plastic tub.  It has a wash arm under each rack and "3rd level" that's a reflecting "spritzer" off the top of the tub.

I have this dishwasher as my daily driver!
You certainly will not be disappointed! This has a porcelain tub, and will wash ANYTHING..has a disposer built in so dont worry too much about scraping, and no pre-rinsing either. Good score!!!

Thanks for the info! Do you know what the wash sequence is on a normal cycle? Does it do more than one rinse. The current KitchenAid l have only does one rinse after washing. Does it heat the water?

Thanks 😁

I'm 99% sure this has two rinses after wash and automatic temperature control.

Here are the wash sequences from my owners manual, yours varies a little by model # but should stil be the same. Plenty of rinses in each cycle..
