This product cleans dishes very well.
This is our first GE dishwasher and we are very happy with it. It does a great job on very dirty, baked on dishes. We couldn't ask for more.

We recently (Nov 2011) remodled our kitchen to include all new appliances. We went with GE based upon reputation, and some past experience with their product. Our pleasure with all the other GE appliances is over shadowed by the poor performance of this dishwasher. We initially used CASCADE Gel caps as recommended by the manufactory. After about 10 loads, we began to notice that our dishes were getting a build-up of what appeared to be some residue. We contacted the on-line technician who informed us that the initial temperature was not hot enough, or we were not using a rinse aid, or no soft water in the house. When I explain we were running the water to get it hot before starting the washer, and we could not put another ounce of rinse aid in the washer, and that we had both an in-line water filter as well as a water softner. He asked if we would like a technician to come out which we did. He informed us to discontinue the use of the gel tablets and use only liquid - - he could not explain the contradiction. We ran some vinegar through the washer and the heater coils looked new again. He said to run that every six months, which is fine except that the diswasher does not properly clean the dishes, unless you put clean dishes into it, then you still get the grit build up on the glasses and dinnerware, and does not properly clean nor is it drying properly. I could not, nor would I ever recommend this product to anyone, and I am very unhappy with the GE Dishwasher. We could not find anything wrong with any of the other appliances.

Good Dishwasher with Plenty of Features. The steam feature and saniwash feature are very helpful and effective
Does not clean well at all.
from Dallas, TX
This dishwasher somehow manages to perform worse than a 15 year old dishwasher, using the same detergent. I thought appliances were supposed to improve in performance over time! Like others have said, you have to pre-wash all the dishes in the sink if you expect them to actually be clean.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
quiet and efficient
We have had this dishwasher for 2 weeks and it is much quieter than our old one. Seems to clean dishes and glasses well!
Worst dishwasher ever
from Hamburg, NY 14075, USA
This is the worst dishwasher I have ever had. Have to clean all dishes before they go in dishwasher or they do not clean at all leave white residue on all my glasses. If my door did not break on my other dishwasher I would have had them re install that one
from Utah, USA
Must "prewash" before you load it or the dishes don't come clean. Had it only 5 months & it's quit working.
Not very satisfied
from Stevens, PA, USA
I've been very unhappy with this dishwasher. It does not get my dishes clean- I'm always having to rewash items by hand after running a cycle. And it has a nasty odor after running the rinse cycle, from day 1.
from Lawrenceville, GA, USA
I have had this dishwasher for 6 months and could not get clean dishes. I finally figured out the problem. When you close the dishwasher door the soap dish is flat up against the top rack and the soap door will not fully open. It finally dawned on me to use a liquid dishwasher detergent to allow the soap to despense. It seems to be doing a much better job now.
good basic dishwasher
from Florida, USA
I didn't expect much from this machine since I shopped purposely in the lowest price range due to my budget. but I am very happy with the quietness of it, how clean it gets my dishes & how dry things are when using heated dry option. plastics are the usual exception, but that's expected. i also like how much space there is to load things both on top & bottom racks. it comes with extra racks for wine glasses, etc, but i haven't needed them thus far. if i wanna sanitize or get severely dirty pans/dishes clean, the stronger cycle options (i.e., sanitize) do the trick. i haven't had any filmy residue like other reviewers mentioned--diligent about using the rinse agent probably helps. i really feel i got more than my monies' worth! of course, it's just for me as a single, so i dunno how it'd hold up against a larger family load. but so far I'm thrilled with it.
most quiet of many dishwashers
from Daytona Beach, FL
Friends hav often remarked on how quit the operation of the Model GLD5604VCC dishwasher is. The indication light that shows the dishes have been washed is so valuable the next day. We love it because everything comes out so clean!
