GDF520PGDBB is rated 4.1597 out of 5 by 1,171.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good at a good price My first time running this, I used all the different features that come with it, however the dishwasher ran for almost 3 hours straight. When I left it on the auto sense setting it seems to run a lot quicker, and does just fine as far as getting the dishes clean

Rated 3 out of 5 by from g.e. dishwasher THIS DISHWASHER TAKES OVER 2 HRS TO CLEAN DISHES. AT FIRST I RAN IT IN SANITARY MODE BUT IT NEVER STOPED SO HAD TO CHANGE SETTINGS

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad Bought this three months ago. Have been a GE supporter for decades (if you can manufacture jet engines and railroad locomotives, how hard can a stove, refrigerator, A/C unit, dishwasher, etc. be?). It does not have a visual indicator to show when the washing cycle is over and the drying cycle has begun. Every dishwasher I've had the last 35 years has this. We have glasses, and bowls with vertical sides, which have rims or indents on the bottom that collect water which does not evaporate in the drying cycle. So it's important that we dab the tops with a dishtowel once the wash cycle is complete. Otherwise when we pull out the rack dirty water drips down the side onto other items. Also, the silverware rack is all the way to the front against the door and invariably some piece(s) do not get clean. Have always had a silverware basket that extended toward the center of the washer. On the plus side it's much quieter than the unit it replaced. Basically disappointed.
