The GE GDF510GDWW is a cost effective, quiet dishwasher with a nice array of features for the price point. The dishwasher capacity is quite good. The upper rack does a nice job with glassware and handles wine glasses even without the attachment. The height differential between the upper and lower allows you to place large, irregular items on the lower rack. The slotted silverware basket and it's multiple placement options also is a simple innovation which gives you a lot of flexibility for loading. Consumer Reports gave it high marks for noise and the marks were well earned. There is a secondary basket for lids and tall items. It's useful but does not always accommodate different thicknesses of spatulas, spoons and whatnot. The dishwasher does a nice job with cleaning. It's rare for every dish not to be spotless. I have found the "pods" are more effective than traditional powdered detergent. The capacity and less frequent washes offset the incremental cost the detergent. The filters are accessible and easy to clean. There are a few small cons. The run cycle seems to be long side. Also, using the heat dry, for some reason, the dishes are wetter than our old model and require secondary wiping before putting away. The higher heat function etched some of our cheap, everyday, Ikea dishes and wore the graphics off some coffee mugs, so I would use with caution with anything you deem precious. Fit, finish, meet expectations and installations was straightforward. If you're not hung-up on creating "dishwasher-envy" this model will do the job.

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!

We bought a brand new just built town home with all new appliances included. The Dishwasher is leaking and the soap dispenser doesn't dispense the soap.
from O'Fallon, MO, United States
Very happy with this product. Only thing I have noticed is when we use Cascade pouches sometimes they don't dissolve all the way.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Doesn't clean well
By Kk hill
from Lansing, MI, United States
We bought this a couple months ago when we built our house, and I absolutely hate it. It does a terrible job. If the plates or bowls or glasses go in with any bit of food on them, they come out afterwards looking the exact same. I essentially have to clean them by hand before putting them in the dishwasher.
Worst dishwasher ever
from Ramsey, MN, United States
This is the worst dishwasher ever it is the biggest piece of junk and ours is brand-new and we are seriously contemplating going to find a different brand due to all of our dishes are never clean all the dishes come out wet every single time the dishwasher is a pile of junk I would never ever ever recommended someone even if it was free

Excellent features, selection of controls and nice looking
from Meridian, ID, United States
This unit came with my new home. I have only used it once and did not use the drying feature, as I think it uses excess energy. Dishes stayed in the unit for a couple days and when removed no water had evaporated.
Storage space for both food and frozen food is more then adequate, as are he features like ice maker and water purifier. I especially like the storage system of drawers to keep item separated in the freezer, and the easy acces of drinks from the door.
from Houston, TX, United States
I love this dishwasher because it is quite and fast. Gets the job done. Excellent
