Ratings and Q&A

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishwasher This is my third GE dishwasher. The first one lasted 17 years, and I decided to update it, the second one I moved away from and the new owners were thrilled, so had to have one in my new to me purchased condo. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features Love the look and location of the controls. The layout of the baskets inside holds more dishes than my last washer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Impressed. Some Good, Meh, Disappointments. This is a review of GE Profile PDF820SGJBB automatic dishwasher. The Good: Internet searches for discounts and incentives were not fruitful. Made a purchase based on a discount retailer's past performance and their small discount. I guess there isn't a lot of deep discounting available for mid-tier dishwashers, this model included in that category. I don't have a sound pressure meter, so I can't say whether the advertised 45dB is achieved. However, the new dishwasher is considerably quieter than the one it replaced. It is so quiet you must look at the control panel display to know if it is on. The 'Meh': We had hoped for clean-every-time washing, but find that there continue to be one or two dishes that seem to come out dirty. This was true of our old dishwasher as well. I am not sure that automation has an answer for what is inherently a manual task. Sigh. The specifications indicates a vented fan to speed drying. I found the vent openings and can't say if there really is a fan (it is very quiet if there is) but even after an overnight washing the dishwasher has some drops of water on some surfaces inside. If the heated drying setting is used, the dishes came out dry after the extended cycle. So that works. But we don't like the idea of using more electricity if we can avoid a heated drying cycle. If I leave clean dishes in a drainer on the counter overnight they always air dry. I would like my automatic dishwasher to have the same result. Disappointments: Installation includes a trim package which apparently fills potential gaps on the sides and top if the under-counter opening is slightly larger than specification. Our opening is exactly the specified required size, and I followed the installation instructions which includes the trim. I assumed the trim (plastic weather stripping) was a good idea for sound proofing, etc., I attempted to install it. The instructions were not clear because the trim installation (step 11) and illustration is followed by mounting bracket installation (step 12) without pictured trim. In fact, there is no way to do both. I struggled with this and realized I had to abandon the trim to get the dishwasher to slide into the under-counter opening. I wasted over an hour trying to attach both the trim and the mounting brackets. Finally realizing I could only choose one or the other (and really, you MUST use the mounting brackets). What the GE installer expects is a complete mystery! Like I said, our opening is correctly sized, so we did not NEED "trim" to fill a gap to make a finished built-in look. I don't know what you would do if you needed both the trim strips and the mounting brackets! I even tried calling the 800.GE.CARES but that phone number does not include installation help. One of the features advertised is "Floor Protection: Floor Protect" which apparently consists of nothing more than a galvanized metal pan under the dishwasher with a capacity of a couple tablespoons of water. The installation guide says "on some models" there is an electronic water sensor to attach to the pan which is designed to shut off the dishwasher in case of leak. Our model apparently has no such electronic sensor although the description led us to believe we would be getting it. We have high-gloss black kitchen appliances and ordered the black model. Our dishwasher's metal front has a painting defect. It looks like a speck or bubble during painting. We are not going to go through a hassle of a return over this, but it is disappointing. There are apparently imperfections in the alloy used within the stainless steel interior because some rust (red discoloration) is now visible on a couple of patches after only a few wash cycles. I intend to monitor this closely and will make a decision to seek warranty replacement if it gets worse within the 1 year we have. We provided both a land-line and mobile phone number in the Appliances Connection profile. These numbers were passed along to the delivery company. The delivery company only called the land line and did not leave messages when the land line was not picked up. They should leave messages or try the mobile. Luckily I happened to be home on their 2nd call to the land line and picked up.
