This product is very quite Very quiet, very versitle in the racks, doesn't have a lot of extras you never us. Not good about dryIng without the heat mode on. July 2, 2013
Cleans dishes well This GE Dishwasher does a great job at cleaning! Great value for the money. Has all of the main features that are needed. We purchased the all black model since we did not like the gray plastic with Stainless Steel... however, found out that you can purchase a Stainless Steel front door cover for $50 less than the cost of the SS model and we get the SS on Black. We are happy. April 26, 2013
Runs very quietly and has great features. This dishwasher runs very quietly and has great features. April 3, 2013
WOULD NOT BUY THIS IF YOU WANT CLEAN DISHES I have had nothing but problems with this dishwasher. I have to hand wash my dishes before I can place them in the washer. I have called GE support, GE warranty dept, told that if a service tech comes out and finds nothing wrong with the machine that I will have to pay for the call. Had a tech come anyway did some minor work and adjusted the water temp but still my dishes are dirty, AND I only use the products that are recommended. So now after spending good money (and I am disabled) I am stuck with a pretty machine on the outside and dirty on the inside. and dishpan hands when my back allows me to stand long enough to do them.

Terrible at cleaning After replacing a GE profile that I loved for 27 years with this model, I am completely disappointed. Not only is it terrible to load, you can't get as many dishes in it, this model does not clean well at all, nor does it dry well. Silverware comes out dirty every time and if I put two plates in the rack back to back, it doesn't clean the second plate. I was used to opening my dishwasher to let it air dry to save electricity, but now I have to use the Dry cycle and the loads still are wet. I would never recommend this model to anyone. Obviously the engineers never ran a true home load in this machine, or just didn't care. Shame on you, GE, for lowering your standards. February 20, 2013
I love this product! This is a great dishwasher. I never have to "pre wash" like I did with my old dishwasher. Quiet, too. February 12, 2013
Waste of Space This dishwasher has been nothing but problems. It was selected as a "top notch" dishwasher by our contractor three years ago when we built our house. Everything else he had selected was perfect, so we trusted his judgement. I've had to consistently run the dishwasher 2-3 times each load in order to get everything clean. Sometimes, I still have to take things out after 5+ trips through the dishwasher and hand wash them to get them clean! Now, the stupid machine isn't running right at all - it stops mid-cycle, without having allowed the detergent to integrate into the cycle. I'm so tired of the hassle thing stupid machine has created. When it does choose to clean my dishes, though, it does an amazing job! January 10, 2013
This is a highley efficient and very quiet dish washer that is "solid" The old "Contractor grade " GE dishwasher I had was noisy . This new model you may not know it is running it is so quiet. The ball bearing sliding shelves feel verty strong when you pull them out of the dishwasher. The steam optio really loosens dried food and allows it to be washed away. I highly recommend this dishwasher. December 1, 2012
