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!

Very basic with some flaws
Comments about GE 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:
This model offers very basic functionality. Doesn't seem to be a quiet worker, but that could be dependent on the installation. Most importantly, the detergent lid doesn't always open at the right time, leaving dishes dirty and detergent liquid half dried on the inside door.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It came with the house. I would have purchased a better one.
from Virginia, United States
Unless I do a light load on heavy, sometimes all the food dowsnt come off the dishes.
Good at cleaning, not so much at drying
from Houston, TX, United States
It washes fine, not too worried about the time it takes, but the drying doesn't work too well. Haven't found a setting that makes it work better.
from Orlando, FL, United States
Had a nightmare until the 4th time got fixed!!!!!!
Did you say "Dish Washer?"
from St. Augsutine, FL
Does not clean dishes. I have to wash them before I put them in the dishwasher to run. The controls on the front are always getting changed from custom settings. There is also a tiny light to tell if the dishes are "clean" and since there is no manual locking mechanism, once you open it for that one item you need, the "clean" light goes off. so when you constantly bump the dishwasher closed you are never sure if it needs to be emptied or run. Very frustrating.
from Mountain House, CA, United States
Has a few really nice features, but not the most efficient. Thought I wouldn't have an issue with a plastic interior but I do. You MUST use the temperature boost to get dishes clean and sanitized as the plastic walls cool the water too quickly. Shouldn't have to buy Profile items to get quality.
Works as expected
