I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher model 665.13032K116, Serial # F42210021 and Type # 583-1. It came with the condo unit. I am old school and wash dishes by hand and do not plan to switch. Should I run it occasionally using Smart Wash and Heated Dry to prevent seals from drying out and keep some fresher water in it? Any other advise would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

There's a small amount of water left in the machine to keep the seals from drying out. Use a dishwasher cleaner and run a normal cycle without any extras. Select no heat dry. If the machine needs it run two cycles with the cleaner. Then run a cycle no soap and no cleaner. Once or twice a year you probably want to run a short cycle, air dry, no heat just to cycle some water through it so you don't get a stale or moldy smell.
