We've had this dishwasher for several months now, and are really pleased with how clean it gets our dishes-- with little to no pre-washing. (Because, who has time to prewash!?) We especially like how big the top rack is-- I can fit my small plates on the top with no adjustment and all of our tall mugs/ travel mugs/ etc which wasn't even close to possible with our old dishwasher, and we also like how it sports it's own individual sprayer-- really optimizing the clean. The few quirks we're annoyed at are as follows: Apart from those expensive cleaning pods-- no matter the type of cleaning fluid I use (powder, or liquid) the cup doesn't clean out very well during the cycle, which can be pretty frustrating. Not sure if this is just an issue with my specific unit (I plan to call in an inquiry on our warranty about it) or if this is a problem with all of these models. Liquid is much worse at fully cleaning out of the cup than the powder. But powder isn't fool-proof either. It tends to gunk up and solidify in there if you close the cup like any normal human would. But, I did realize very soon after troubleshooting this issue that the cup opens nearly immediately after you start a cycle, and so I just stopped closing it all together, which seems to have nearly solved the problem. Still annoying, though. The second most annoying thing are the front hanging baskets for silverware which are problematic for several reasons. First: the individual slots in the blue covers for utensils-- while a pretty innovative and smart design don't stay on. I do agree that it ends up cleaning our silverware better because it keeps them in an upright position with their heads facing up/ out, but they're nearly impossible to keep on. The blue plastic tabbies that click into place on the gray main-part pop off all the time. I've given up and removed most of them and resorted to just popping my silverware into the cubbies, face up, like every other dishwasher design. Also, those baskets tend to fall off a lot, which is annoying. The tabs that slide into the wire racks aren't close to long enough to make them sturdy enough to pull on to slide your racks out and they often pop off really easily. Which, isn't a huge issue, but is definitely annoying after a while. And, I've noticed that if you don't have them in *just* the right position they'll hang a little low placing them right in the way of the circular under-rack sprayers and hit it with each rotation. Also, a lot of reviews will complain about the dry-cycle. And, I've got to be honest, that sounds like a 'first world' problem if I've ever heard one. I mean, to each his own, but I never run the dry cycle because I consider it a total waste of energy and time. Maybe I don't have high enough standards for how dry my dishes are upon completion of clean. But, that's just not an issue for me. The unit is also pretty quiet when running. That seems like a big concern to people, too. Especially if you live in a small house or apartment. I will say it does take a while to complete a cycle, esp. if you're running it on heavy-- but it gets my dishes so much cleaner that I can't really complain about it. Having said all that, I'm still really happy with this dishwasher. Maybe it's because our last dishwasher (a hotpoint) was so terrible that I would basically want to go all 'Office Space' copier-scene on it every time I loaded it or ran a cycle. But, then, the purchase process was so confusing with differing opinions and reviews that we were at a loss, and finally just made an educated guess and picked one in our price range that just happened to be a pretty good one!

I do love the dishwasher and the air dry feature that saves energy. It's super quiet and the cleans well. The only feature I don't like are the silverware baskets. They have these hinged slotted openings to hold your silverware for cleaning, but none of my silver ware except the small spoons and table knives will fit in them. So I removed that piece on some of them, but then the silverware is all bunched together and doesn't get clean. I would guess most people will have this same issue as my silverware isn't exceedingly large but does have a squared end. Also the silverware is hard to pull out of the slots because the fit is so tight. Kind of disappointing as duh, the job of this machine is to clean silverware and dishes! Seems like a small thing but it really isn't. So thumbs up for quiet and cleaning, thumbs down for an obvious design flaw.

Comments about GE 24" Stainless Steel Tall Tub Built-In Dishwasher:
I like that it's quite running. Racks seem to work well. I've had one service call where the door lock switch needed replacement. It's touchy and still continues to flash at times.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Brand new dishwasher with our home purchase, does an awful job cleaning the dishes. Soap hardly even is removed from the dispenser during wash.
from league city tx
features are good - would have preferred a bit more of an upgrade, but this is what came with our home.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It's ok but I wish it was stainless steel inside and I sometimes the dishwasher doesn't dry good
Worst Dishwasher I have ever had
from Prescott Valley, AZ, United States
This dishwasher does not clean the dishes and it also does not dry the dishes so it is by far the worst dishwasher I have ever owned.
Not sure, yet
from Kansas, United States
It looks great, has lots of included features. But, so far, I'm somewhat disappointed. It really doesn't get the dishes clean, unless I scrub them vigorously before placing them in the dishwasher. And, it seems to take a long time to go through the cycles. So, I haven't decided whether or not I think it was a good choice.
Elegant and functional
from Miami, FL, United States
I had been waiting for my dishwasher to be replaced by my builder since I purchased the stainless steel package and was given a white one temporarily. It was worth the wait. My new dishwasher is sleek, elegant and quietly cleans my dishes. The hidden buttons are one feature I love and lets not forget the locking of the pad so my 5 year old doesn't get to run it when I don't want it run.
from Huntsville, TX, United States
Bought to remodel kitchen to all the same appliances. My Maytag dishwasher was not very and I loved it. However I like this GE dishwasher almost as much. I do not like the silverware racks. Otherwise it cleans just as well as the Maytag and is almost as quiet.
I love my new dishwasher!!!
from Dillon, CO
This dishwasher replaced an old nasty one in my new condo. This GE dishwasher is so quiet and works great. I especially like the silverware 'trays' with the 'holes/spaces' for each handle of silverware. Being able to change the position of the upper rack is a nice feature.
Not so much...
from St. Paul, MN
In a year's time this is my 2nd dishwasher, and it's worse than the first one. MANY service calls, but they can't seem to fix the latch system, so I have to manipulate it to even run. It's a horrible design. I give up.
