Good dishwasher that fits when you do not have standard counter clearance. My kitchen was tiled around the base cabinets by the previous owner. This caused the opening for the dishwasher to be 33.5 inches(h). This dishwasher is one of the few that had legs that adjusted to the size I needed. The dishwasher is slightly smaller inside than the one it replaced, but we do not find this to be a problem. It runs quiet and was easy to install. It is not top of the line, but serves it's purpose and is a good value for the price.

ating this product one star is giving it too much credit!!! I have never been so disappointed in a product in my life! We went looking at another model, but the salesman assured us this would be a better product than the one we had researched and decided on based on the excellent consumer reviews (which was cheaper than this one, btw). The product took over two weeks to be delivered. The product arrived and my husband installed it. We sat watching and waiting for it to start. It didn't. The light kept flashing, indicating the door was not all the way shut. We soon realized that the "catch" on the door of the dishwasher that indicates the door is closed so the appliance will work is TOO SHORT to click! This is not an installation problem. How could it be?! We called GE. They were closed, said to call back during business hours. My husband works business hours, like 95% of other Americans. It would be nice if they had better customer service with a little bit wider of a time frame to field calls! We taped on a piece of cardboard to extend the catch and the dishwasher proceeded to start and stop and make weird noises the entire cycle (which is WAY longer than any other dishwasher we've ever owned). It does not sound right, but the manual assures us it's normal. The dishes came out clean, but WET, despite choosing the HEAT DRY option. One day later, it will not start worth anything. As if that is not bad enough, the stupid appliance makes THE most annoying "video game sounds" CONSTANTLY. Whenever we have tried to start the dishwasher (only to have the lights flash indicating the door is not shut properly), it will beep every 60 seconds indefinitely to let you know that it's not working -- as if we didn't notice?! It also plays a stupid tune at the end of the cycle, IF you can get it to work. Did I mention there is not a way to turn off the sounds?! There isn't! Of course! I know this is not a top of the line product, but I still expect the door to close!!! This was my first and will be my last GE purchase. I can't wait to replace it with the cheaper competitor's product that we should have gone with all along!

Not the Best

By 

from Denton, TX, United States

Comments about GE GLDT696 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

We just built a new house and chose the entire GE Profile line for our kitchen, including this dishwasher. The dishwasher is very quiet, I will admit that. But that's about the only positive I can give it. First off, it rarely dries the dishes. Even if we turn the "Power Dry" setting On, the dishes still come out wet. Secondly, the dishwasher ALWAYS smells awful. We don't put dishes in dishwasher with large food stuck to them. I've tried cleaning it out, but it just smells awful. I guess the soap dispenser doesn't always open, so at least once a week we open the dishwasher after a cycle is complete and see soap debris all over the interior of the door and the dishes are still dirty. My advice, stay away!

I am in love with a dishwasher!

By

Comments about GE GLDT696 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

This is one fabulous product. Sleek, quiet, efficient and attractive. The quality and design are first class. It looks like is was built by NASA. Sometimes I just wasnt to climb inside and read a good book under those four internal LED lights. Thank you GE!

Quietest Dishwasher I have every witnessed!

By 

from Salem, NY, United States

Comments about GE GLDT696 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

This thing is so quiet we literally had to check it to be sure it was on! Does a real good job of cleaning but beware not to put too much on the top rack as the top sprayer is a snap on plastic thing that will come off in the wash. It is easy to snap back on but I was a bit disappointed to see it laying at the bottom of my tub. But I would rather it be break away that get damaged or damage my dishes. Overall a good unit.

Poor design

By 

from Holly Springs, NC, United States

Comments about GE GLDT696 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

This came with our new house and I already want to replace it. The top rack fits only short glasses (not even wine glasses) and bowls fall over. Very few dishes fit in it. Our inspector found it leaking before we moved in so it was fixed. Now after 2 months of use it is leaking again on the bottom right side.
