Product Details

GE Cafe 24" Stainless Steel Dishwasher, Model CDWT980SS

Features:

  • 5-stage filtration with Piranha™ hard food disposer
    5 self-cleaning filters ensure clean dishes
  • Dedicated silverware jets
    A middle wash arm with powerful spray jets is focused specifically on silverware to providing a thorough cleaning of all utensils. These jets are an important part of the PureClean wash system with 5-stage filtration
  • DeepClean™ cycle with Steam Prewash
    The DeepClean cycle helps to remove difficult soils – like eggs, oatmeal and rice – throughout the dishwasher and uses a Steam Prewash option. Here’s how the Steam Prewash works: After the second prewash fill, the dishwasher stops the water circulation and activates the calrod heater. Water dripping from the glassware and dishware falls onto the calrod heater and creates a wall of steam that helps to loosen soils before the main wash
  • Fan assist dry with heated option and ActiveVent
    A heating element heats the air inside while a hidden fan circulates the warm air to help dry dishes
  • 48 dBA sound level
    Nearly silent two-pump system cleans dirty dishes without disruption
  • ENERGY STAR® qualified and CEE Tier II rated
    Meets or exceeds federal guidelines for energy efficiency for year-round energy and money savings

We bought a set of GE Cafe products, the dual fuel range, the convection microwave and the previous (now discontinued) version of this dishwasher, the CDWT980RSS, at an unbeatable price. We have had it a couple of weeks and it is working very well. Selecting dishwashers is complicated by the variations in combination of features, but this one has everything we were looking for. We have always used Cascade dish washing detergent and it works fine (as recommended). The dishes come out clean. There are lots of fold down tine options on the racks, and the upper rack handles wine glasses really nicely, something our previous dishwasher did not have. If the new model 980V works as well, I highly recommend it. As far as price, it pays to shop around once you decide what you want, as the prices vary hugely from store to store and the big box stores do not always have the best prices. We got an extended (5 year) warranty with all three appliances, so should be covered if problems do occur, and if you can get it I recommend it at least for the first few years. By the way the display is indeed a slightly different shade of blue than the microwave, but it is a minor aesthetic point. They all look great in our newly renovated kitchen (new counters and floor).

looks nice, but...

Nice looking and very quiet, but after about 14 months, the electrical part is not working and now have to pay to get it fixed b/c it's out of warranty. Very disappointed.

Recurring leak

By 

from Georgetown, CA, USA

Comments about GE Cafe 24" Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

We've had this dishwasher for about a year now and have been dealing with a front door leak through 5 service calls now. Another reviewer mentioned the same issue, if you search the Internet you'll find others. There is a condensation issue on the inside of the door that causes this leak out of the lower left side of the door. After 5 service calls I have come to learn there is a kit to fix this, but the other reviewer said it came back. Happy that I have the extended warranty! The vent kit will be installed next week, we'll see how it goes. I hope it solves it because this would be a great review for this dishwasher otherwise, it's very quite and cleans well. I believe with the amount of complaints that I have seen about this issue GE should treat it as a recall, we have wood floors and had we not seen this issue it could have done some really serious damage to our floors.

Comments about GE Cafe 24" Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

We own the Café Refrig, Stove, and Microwave; and we finally upgraded our old dishwasher to the new Café! We Love it! I enjoy that the machine has the auto soap dispenser, and the hard food disposal; especially with a family of 5. It has saved us time; and effort throughout the day! Thanks GE!

THIS PRODUCT IS VERY QUIET!

By 

from Wisconsin, USA

Comments about GE Cafe 24" Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

The dishes come out clean! The machine is very quiet....being in an open concept cottage, it was very important to have a dishwasher that was quiet! The look is sleek...with no controls on outside it looks nice. I have it paired with the GE Monogram Series Pro Range and it matches great!

Comments about GE Cafe 24" Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

This product is so quiet that I actually have to put my ear near it to see if it has started. My glassware is crystal clear and dishes come out spotless. The look is very sleek; no buttons for small hands to interrupt cycle.
