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!

This dish washer just does not work properly. Never dissolves the soap and the dishes remain dirty.

P{for quality, Poor deeding

By 

from Delaware, United States

Comments about GE GLDT696 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

Bought four GE appliances 4/2013. Dishwasher silver trim at the top the door started peeling within a few months. GE did replace the trim but the design requires the unit to be removed/pulled out from the cabinet and the doors to be taken completely off of the unit to replace this piece of trim. Just recently the trim piece that was replaced buy the GE Tech broke. This trim piece covers all of the controls for the machine so it is very possible that water will penetrate the unit and cause a short in the control board. In addition the bezel that connects the handle to the door broke in two and we have to hold the two broken parts together to open or close the door. Very unsightly and does definitely affect the operation of the unit. If I had another chance I would avoid the Profile Line of appliances completely since the trim parts are made of cheap plastic and there is no way a DIY person could replace the damaged parts. Poor design and cheap plastic parts not just on the dishwasher but on the refrigerator, stove and microwave as well.

Great Value!

By 

from Texas, United States

Comments about GE GLDT696 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

It's quiet and efficient! I love the indicator light that alerts the family that dishes are already clean! I've had it a month and so far I have not needed to re-wash one dish... And no I do not pre-wash. I love the adjustable racks. I can easily load cutting boards and cookie sheets, while still able to slide the racks in and out.

Very versatile

By 

from Northern AZ

Comments about GE GLDT696 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:

This dishwasher has so many features. You can raise and lower the top rack, raise and lower many of the prongs. There are bottle washers, wine glass holders, 3 utensil baskets that can be moved wherever you need. If you only have a small load, it can be set for top or bottom rack only, which saves water. This is the most important feature for my family, since we live in the desert. There are many different cycles and temperatures from which to choose. It is so quiet that the first time we used it, we had to keep checking to see if it was running. In 48 years of marriage, is the best dishwasher we've ever had.
