I searched for the specifications and technical information on that dishwasher when I answered your first question. I found no technical information available on that older model other than the parts diagram on our Sears PartsDirect website. The water charge amount per fill is based on similar models that have the same type of components. The 1.7 gallons of water per fill should be accurate. As noted in the previous answer, that amount can vary based on water pressure and flow rates that are supplied to the dishwasher. The information that I provided about water usage for that dishwasher should be accurate.

I am sorry that I cannot find more information about that dishwasher.

If you need more help, let us know and we will try to assist you further.

A:

The dishwasher will normally fill with about 1.7 gallons of water during the water charge portion of each cycle. The exact water fill amount will vary based on your water pressure and other factors. The 1.7 gallon rating is a ball park figure. The normal cycle will fill 4 times so that cycle will use about 6.8 gallons of water. The light wash will fill 3 times so it uses around 5.1 gallons. The soak & scrub pots/pans cycle will fill 5 times to it uses around 8.5 gallons.

I don't have a cycle timing chart for this model of dishwasher. I suspect that the light wash will take just over 30 minutes. The normal wash will probably take about an hour. The soak & scrub pots/pans cycle will probably take about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.
