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.

This dishwasher was already installed in the new home we purchased. It is the worst dishwasher I have ever used and I hate it. After six months of fighting with it, I'm finally giving up and buying a myself a new (different brand!# dishwasher. This GE dishwasher will go out on the curb for some poor unfortunate soul to deal with. Neither the top or bottom rack is adjustable and none of the tines move. It can fit 16 place settings but that means you can stack 16 plates in it and that is about all. Who washes 16 place settings on a daily basis? Forget about tall glasses or wine glasses - the top rack can fit small juice glasses or mugs and that's all. I can't fit any pans, serving dishes, cookie sheets, sauce pans, or containers I use for leftovers. This dishwasher has the most annoying beeping at the end of the cycle. Four long beeps with a minute of silence in between. The beeps cannot be shut off. Why is this feature on a dishwasher? Who in their right mind cares when a dishwasher completes? It's not like I'm going to jump up and empty it as soon as the cycle is finished. Seriously GE - get rid of this feature!!! Forget about starting the dishwasher right before you go to sleep - you'll be awakened by 5 minutes of beeping. The rubber seal around the dishwasher #to prevent water from leaking out) is not seated properly. I cannot roll the top or bottom rack into the dishwasher without it catching on this rubber seal. I am constantly painstakingly putting this rubber seal back into position. If I could have rated this dishwasher a minus 10, I would have. Since a "poor" rating was all I was allowed, that's what I selected. Save your money, do not buy this inadequate, poorly designed, and cheaply constructed dishwasher.

Works Well, Looks Great
By Seattle Homeowner
from Seattle, WA, United States
Comments about GE GLDT696 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:
Generally happy with this appliance. The use of plastic for nearly all parts is excessive and chintzy, and the racks are very flimsy with little to stop them from being pulled out all the way and coming off their rails. But my dishes are clean, and ultimately that's the bottom line.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Doesn't Clean Well
from Los Angeles
The dishwasher has been in use for less than 3 months and already doesn't clean dishes well. We only use it for coffee mugs, glasses and occasionally stemware.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Cleans dishes but...
from Birmingham, AL, United States
I like the dishwasher. It cleans really well and is super quiet compared to others. However the prongs that stick up to separate dishes bend and break easily. One has already come completely off and two others are bent. That's the only problem I have
Dishes still dirty!
from Janesville, WI, United States
The water pressure is very weak on this dishwasher! Dishes were practically cleaned off before using dishwasher and there was still was residue!
Horrible -DO NOT BUY
By ash bhatt
from Miami, FL, United States
the control panel on this machine constantly shorts. I have had mine replaced 4 times since i have had it. I recently had the control panel replaced 2 months ago and it is broken again. do yourself a favor and don't buy this product.
Fits under a counter
By Big Lou
from GA, United States
I bought this dishwasher because the height was shorter and would fit under the counter. I was surprised at how much smaller it was front to back. It is overall, smaller than I was expecting.
This model is great because it not only works wonderfully but is also ADA compliant.
Best cleaning dishwasher ever
from Fredericksburg, TX, United States
I have owned many different brands of dishwashers but this one is the best cleaning dishwasher I have ever owned. Even though the size is smaller than I normally purchase. Our space was limited because of contractor mistake. Even the dirtiest pots and casserole dishes get clean. I very seldom have to rewash anything. I ended paying more for this machine because of the size but it was well worth it.
It fit, it works well & is very very quiet.
By Edward Gilbert
from Mountains above San Bernardino`
We needed an ADA compliant unit so as to fit in a smaller than normal space. We selected from a catalog so we were not sure what to expect. We couldn't be more pleased. Quieter than any I've heard. We are as happy with this purchase as possible. Installed it myself.
works as good as higher priced ones
from Mountain Home, ID, United States
