Super quiet and slate color looks great. Sorry to see this as a discontinued item. GE assembled in America. Bought three new GE appliances at one time. All are great with the features they offer and reasonable price as well. As for the dishwasher, it's super quiet. The first couple times I wasn't sure it was working right. Cleans very well with just normal dishwashing soap. We always pre-rinse dishes. Dries great if we use it. The slate color really looks good. No cons to ever consider on this one. August 3, 2013
I love the features especially the steam This is one of GE's best products. I highly recommend it and no fingerprints. July 5, 2013
So Far So Good just installed , ran first load. nice and quiet and clean dishes once again! June 23, 2013
Doesn't wash This dishwasher was purchased a couple of weeks ago as it was the only one available in the slate finish which my husband wanted for our newly remodeled kitchen. So far I have run it three times. The first time was just dishes that needed a quick rinse from being in boxes. The second time was mostly boxed up dishes along with a few glasses and bowls which had ice cream in them. Upon opening the dishwasher, the dishes were still wet and none of the 5 bowls from ice cream were clean. A factory service call was made and a local technician came out and said to turn up the water heater, use heated dry, and use soap in the prewash container, even though the dishwasher had come with sample pods. I did all these things, but the next load, which was a normal load of dirty dishes, had 50% of the plates and bowls come out not only dirty, but with what looked like mold on them. The local technician came out again this morning, added the steam button to the normal cycle, and left. We will see if that fixes it. I doubt that it will. I would not buy another GE appliance as I have had trouuble with all 4 appliances purchased less than a month ago. May 29, 2013
QUIET. ENERGY EFFICIENT This dishwasher is so quiet you don't know it is running. great quality and energy efficient. would recommend this product to anyone looking for quality and value. May 19, 2013
GE dishwasher I love my new dishwasher. Is is very quiet. Can barely hear it washing the dishes. April 27, 2013
SUPER quiet Purchased this mostly because of the beautiful slate color, infact, this lead to buying all new kitchen appliances and a remodel of our 1995 kitchen. This model is supef quiet and cleans great. We chose this model over the other slate dw because it did not have the curved handle which would have protruded into a narrow space in our kitchen. One feature i wish this had is a digital timer read out, and be sure to install the silverware rack covers or the silverware tends to tip nearly out of the rack. April 27, 2013
Great Dishwasher Really love our new slate GE dishwasher, sharp looking model. Very quiet, and does a great job cleaning. Replaced our old GE 700 potscrubber that was 19 years old. March 28, 2013
