Ratings and Q&A

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GE Dishwasher - GDF520PGDWW I purchased this dishwasher as a replacement for a previous GE that was recalled. This is honestly the worst dishwasher I've ever owned (worse than the one that GE willingly recalled). A few reasons for this conclusion. One, it does not actually clean my dishes despite how often I clean the filters or the quality of detergent I use. Two, the manufacturing quality is very cheap as the rungs on the rack started breaking within a few months of owning it and I've had to replace several other parts (most recently the lower washing arm) because the plastic connection simply broke apart. Three, most of these replacements have been on my own dime because of the short 1 year warranty on parts. I'd like to try to say something positive (well it looks nice I guess) but I can't hide my disappointment with this unit. Honestly, if they recalled it again I would probably rather pay for a different (non-GE) model than replace it a third time. Hope this helps anyone considering this unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died in less than 2 years I bought this model less than 2 years ago and now none of the electronics worked. My wife tried to call the ",GE Cares" phone number just to find out they didn't care. I will never own another GE product in my house.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Racks I've had this machine for almost year and it washes just fine. The problem is the cheap, vinyl covered racks. I already had to replace the lower rack due to peeling and rust, and the new rack is the same poor quality. These are vinyl coated, not epoxy coated, and you can nick them with your fingernail. Additionally, they are dark gray, so they're already pretty rusty before you notice the damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ONE OF MY BEST DISHWASHERS I have been using this GE dishwasher for the past three years. It works effortlessly and cleans the dishes to sparkling. The hot water boost is a big plus since the kitchen is at the farthest point from the hot water heater. Works better than my high priced dishwasher in NY.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I read some reviews and I am having the same issues with detergent door, residue, and will not start. It is like it is not registering that the door is locked and won't start. I have had it for 4 years and have really never been happy with it. the one I had before was over 20 years old and still worked great. Just thought I was upgrading.
