Tall Tub Design (Standard Interior Size), Energy Star, UltraWash System

For households with more than just a few members, it is important to have a dishwasher that will be able to accommodate many dishes and cups per cleaning cycle. Purchasing a large dishwasher should be the best option in this case. Fortunately, Kenmore has a product that specifically caters to this need. The Kenmore 1774 portable dishwasher is a large unit that combines the capacity to clean after big families with the portability that some kitchen setups require. This product simply provides the best of both worlds.

Interior Features
  • This model has nylon racks that protect your precious dishes from scratches. It also prevents rust from building up inside the washer.
  • The tall tub design of this model will accommodate large plates, pots, and other types of containers. The dishwasher also has a high-temperature wash option that effectively cleans stubborn residue from your dining items.
  • The interior tub is built from durable plastic that should maintain its form and obviously remain rust-free for years to come. The UltraWash system included in this model will clean all your dishes without damaging any of those items.
  • The unit has a quick wash feature that allows it to clean a full load of dishes and containers in approximately one hour. The unit also has the interior capacity comparable to a full size dishwasher, while retaining its portability.

    Exterior Features

  • This model comes in two exterior finishes, white and black, that are both stylish and elegant. The dishwasher has a full set of exterior controls and indicators: you will have full control of the operation of the machine at all times.
  • The True Hold door holds the dishwasher door securely in place during operation and during loading and unloading.

    After one could not get parts for my 1991 kenmore portable dishwasher, I now have a new model #1774 kenmore black portable dishwasher. It is 24" wide just like the 1991 model was. The biggest difference is that the controls are electronic unlike the older one that had a timer. My new #1774 is very nice. I run it a few times a week. The dishes come out very clean. I have a new Kenmore because the 1991 model served me so well for all of these years. Because my house is 50 yrs. old and the kitchen is shaped like it is, a portable dishwasher is the best bet. This way, I do not have to remodel to have a great dishwasher.
