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!

Product is Good
from Tavares, FL, United States
Purchased a new home 2 weeks ago. Dishwasher cleans dishes, but it is very noisy.
What you'd expect
I only really use this machine for parties, when I can't manage all the dishes by hand. Light use.
Bought a new home that came with matching GE Appliances and I Love them all!
Cheap, loud, doesn't clean or dry.....

This dishwasher is the worst Iâ€™ve ever owned. Actually fell apart after less than 3 weeks of use. GE came out to diagnose. The unit was not put together correctly in factory. The dishwasher came as part of new house construction. The unit is very loud, runs for 2 1/2 hours and leaves a dirty, gritty film on dishes and glasses which were clean when they put into dishwasher; and does not dry on heated dry. The unit was cleaned internally with the recommended dishwasher cleaner. We have to re-wash dishes by hand after running on heavy and heated dry. Do not purchase this model for any reason.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great! Actually cleans my dishes.
from Ottumwa, IA, United States
This actually cleans my dishes, especially dried milk in glasses. Also leaves them free from residue when I take them out.

Works perfectly, couldn't ask for a batter product
It came with the house
By New homeowners
from Colorado Springs, CO, United States
We bought a new home and this came with it. I probably wouldn't have picked it myself. I don't like the black plastic look with the stainless front. Would be nice to have more washing options. And I don't like the silverware holders. I can barely fit what I need to put in them by the time the dishwasher is full. And sometimes they are so full the silverware does not wash properly. Also sometimes the silverware (due to location) prevents the detergent door from opening. Some of the dish dividers have bent already so that is a bummer as well. Overall it's okay but I have to be really careful on how I load it.
