I chose this dishwasher over a dozen others because it enables me to turn off the heat cycle to let the dishes air dry; that worked fine in my previous dishwasher in this dry climate and spares electricity. Initially the dishwasher did not drain properly but GE took charge and scheduled a technician to fix it. Despite the machine baffling technicians at first, replacement of the pump resolved the issue and it is performing as expected now. The GE reps are courteous and efficient, ensuring that I got a good product. The warranty lives up to expectations, so if you ever need it take advantage of it. I am pleased to now have a nice new machine that does a fine job of cleaning dishes. I hope this will be the last of the 4 dishwashers I have owned. I'm a bit old fashioned and don't get along with electronic push buttons as well as with the simple old dials, but the dishwasher and I are communicating adequately these days even though I doubt I will ever use all the cycles and features. I image the delayed start and varied cycles will appeal to others, nonetheless. I am just grateful to be able to get clean dishes automatically.

I didn't care for the dark interior but I chose this dishwasher nonetheless because I could turn off the heat cycle to let the dishes air dry; that worked fine in my previous dishwasher in this dry climate and spares electricity. So what happens with this machine is that the dishwasher pumps out the rinse water and then, apparently, the water from the dishes sheets off, leaving a deep pool of slimey water in the bottom. I had a service person out but of course it did not pool water when it was run empty. Or if it is partially full. The standing water is 1/2 - 1" deep and it stays there until I wash the next load some days later. Now that the days are getting warmer the pooled water is beginning to smell. I held off writing my review for 5 months. Today the rubber gasket came off when the dishes were unloaded. It fit back into the groove all the way around in an inverted U. My son-in-law said it has come off before. Other than that the dishwasher cleans the dishes adequately (with pre-rinsing of crud since we don't run the dishwasher frequently). I like the little extra plastic basket for little things. I don't use the topmost fold down rack for short glasses, indeed, I don't try to load it to the max because of all the residual water. The secret to operating the push buttons can be discovered only via trial and error as the instructions on the front don't seem right and the manual doesn't specify details (e.g., for Cancel hold 3 seconds, but that doesn't seem to stop it).

Quiet & Clean!
We are extremely happy with our choice which is VERY quite and reasonable in cycle time. The only comment I have is I do not like the dark interior.
from Dallas, TX, United States
We have had this dishwasher for about a month and love it. Very quiet and does the job well. I would suggest the recommended Cascade pods as they seem to clean and dry the dishes better than regular liquid detergent
I wouldn't purchase any other product.
from Cincinnati, OH, United States
I worked for G.E for years until I was laid off but feel they have the best appliances. Even though I'm not an employee, I will still purchase their products because they are the best products on the market.
Worthless, does not clean dishes.
from Minneapolis, MN, United States
I had high hopes when I purchased this dishwasher, I am deeply disappointed that I have to REWASH EVERYTHING that I run through this dishwasher, again, by hand. This is not what I bought it for, what a waste of money and time. I have tried different cycles to no avail. I've had dishwashers that got dishes clean the first time around in apartments I have lived in, so I know what a good dishwasher is able to do, this one is not it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Easy to Install
from NJ, United States
I installed myself and the unit works fine. Great features and very quit operation.
Crystal Clear dishes every time
from Hemet, CA, United States
I am so happy with this dishwasher, it cleans grime and gets the dishes sparkling everytime. It also has a steam feature so when the family is sick you can sanitize the dishes. Would suggest this product to family and friends.
from Wash St.
Orig one leaked and had to be replaced. This one works OK but no Rinse and Hold feature, which I miss.
from Las Vegas, Nevada
I am generally happy with this name brand ru chase. However with this particular model, I found that if I put some cutlery in the middle of the cutery tray, it sometimes does not allow the soap to dispense fully leaving at the end of the wash, when I open the door, there is wet gritty soap residue left which was not completely dispensed.
from Montgomery, AL, United States
Does not dry completely. Glasses and silverware still wet after "drying" cycle is complete.
