I have had this machine for almost a year now. It replaced an apartment size portable. So far I have been very pleased. This is a no-frills machine. It has your basic cycles, and not much else. That was exactly what I was looking for; something I did not have to fuss with. I scrape my dishes, turn the dial to Normal or Heavy, and that's about it. No need for anything fancier for typical use. The dishes always come out clean with good detergent, rinse agent, and reasonable scraping with a rubber spatula. No pre-rinsing is really necessary except for really nasty dishes. The only (minor# caveats I have about the machine are pretty much typical in a dishwasher in this price range. Since there is no spray arm above the upper rack, it is important to not overcrowd items up there. Water need to be able to spray from the wash tower below. If it is too crowded, you may find the occasional bit of food hanging out on the outside of your dishes. It's not a serious problem, but worth noting. Proper loading circumvents it. The final quibble I have is the lack of vertical space in the upper rack. The rack is not adjustable #lower end machine), and tall glasses may not fit. Most notably, my plastic iced tea tumblers were too tall. Not a big deal for me, but may be for some other users. Overall, I love my basic model GE Dishwasher. It gives me consistently clean dishes with a minimum of fuss, holds a large load, and has been very reliable. How much more can you ask for from a basic appliance?

We run the dishwasher once, maybe twice a week at the most. After owning a GE portable for 10 years without a single problem, naturally we decided to go with another GE portable when the racks on our old portable become worn out and rusty after ten years of use. So rather then buy new racks at substantial cost and then possibly have the old washer stop working, we decided to go with a brand new washer. We picked this model because it had more features, much better dish racks, and was supposed to be quieter then our old one. When we got this washer home it didn't make as much noise as our old one. But after a year of minimal use it's just as noisy as our old model. It's been 14 months since our purchase and the dryer element has stopped working two months after the warranty expired. This is very disappointing considering how little this machine has been used. Overall, we're very disappointed in the wash job it does, the time it takes to complete a load, and it's noise level. We could not recommend this washer simply because it already needs repaired when our older, less expensive GE portable lasted well over 10 years without a single problem.

Comments about GE 24" Black Convertible/Portable Dishwasher:
I bought this product a month ago to replace an older GE model that stopped working after 14 years. The new dishwasher has less clearance space on the top rack and doesn't dry the dishes very well (even on heat dry). The middle cone takes up space that was used for dishes in my older model so it doesn't hold quite as much. Other than that it cleans good and serves the purpose for a portable dishwasher.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very clean dishes!!

Great features. It washes the dishes very clean. I am very happy with this dishwasher.
from Arden Hills, MN
Bought this to replace our old one. The racks are not very convenient, it's hard to put glasses on the bottom or the top rack, there is not a lot of space for, for example, plastic containers and lids on the top rack. Also, the fill/drain hose is hard to pull out and hook up. It does not dry all that well, either. I would like to return it, but unfortunately that is not possible, so we'll just have to live with it. Would not buy again, though.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
So far so good
Dishwasher came, the delivery guys unpacked,I went over all paper work,did the initial pre wash check list. Everything looked good only had it for a couple days. My last dish washer was a GE we bought it in a ding an dent sale in 2001,it lasted till just a couple weeks ago. When things go good u don't change,never had any trouble with GE always been good to me. Would recommend to anyone.
Ease to use
from Pooler, Chatham County, GA, United States
The only thing that I do not like is the hoses are on the back left side and are too short to reach the sink so have to turn the dishwasher around so the hoses will reach. Do not want to move the dishwasher completely to in front of the sink.

Easy to use
This is easy to use and does the job every time. What more needs to be said than "easy and works well".
Broken on arrival

Delivered today, but was broken. It fills but does not drain. There was a leak. Seemed poorly constructed, there were screws not properly fastened.
