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!

Comments about GE 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:
Dishwasher typically leaves a film on the dishes even with the rinse aide. They are usually still wet too upon cycle completion. The door is flimsy (almost bendable) and it runs loud.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This dishwasher was put in my house while being built. Wish i would have had a choice to get something different. After supposedly washing the dishes there is still a bunch of soap all over the place and the dishes aren't clean. If they do actually get cleaned they don't dry well at all.

Just moved into our new home and this appliance has been great! Clean dishes with no leftover residue, spotless!
A little noisy
from Albuquerque, NM, United States
The features are very useful. However, the noise level is higher than expected and in comparison to other dishwashers I have owned.
Dishes come out clean!

This is an excellent, energy efficient dishwasher. Dishes come out clean and it has minimal noise while running. I use the heated dry option and it does its job good!

it is very quiet. works well. However, with temp boost setting, it feels like it is running forever.

This new dishwasher was in a new home that we bought. The quality of the dishwasher is poor. If you accidentally lean against the front panel, and how can't you when it is right beside the sink and counter!, it automatically starts a cycle. The buttons also stick when they are pressed. It is also loud when it is washing dishes. You cannot use any of the tablets in this dishwasher as it doesn't dissolve them completely and leaves an undissolved mess on the door. And it doesn't dry the dishes completely. They are always wet when the cycle is complete.
