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!

Quiet and effective
from Anacortes, WA, United States
Comments about GE 24" Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:
Quietest machine I have owned. Only problem is that the soap dispenser is in a location where silverware can prevent the latch from opening fully. Since we figured this out, easy to work around.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Heated Dry does not work!
from Radford, VA
With a new house came this new dishwasher. Could not make the heated dry option work so a technician came out to inspect. Says the heater is working and the water needs to be hot at the sink when it's started. That's done and it STILL does not dry the dishes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Got this when I bought my home. Its only been a year and making loud noises. The dishwasher door is very flimsy and has never dried properly. Poorly made would not recommend

Dishwasher was installed in our new home when we bought it. Sorry, it doesn't clean dishes like it should, it is noisy, and it takes 2 hours to run through the cycle!

This dishwasher came with our new house. The kitchen is integrated with the family room. There is NO delay start and it is not very quiet. I would never buy this for myself
from Neoga, IL, United States
Told salesman I wanted dishwasher that would get the dishes clean. He recommended this model because of its features, three sprayers vs two. Motor wore out in less than two years. I would expect better durability of parts for the cost of this model. Unit is noisier than expected. Over four hour cycle times.
from Newark, DE, United States
I like the exterior look of the unit and the easy of use. I do not like the silverware holder on the front of the basket.

from Blaine, Wash, United States
I needed a dishwasher, with a slightly less height than normal, as it was a replacement of an old hobart, and a 3/4" plywood floor had been installed. Not wanting to pull up the countertop, I need a dishwasher that would fit, most are taller, but this unit just made it. Some work to lower water supply and waste, but not bad. Much more quiet than former unit. Overall satisfied. Thanks...
New with our house and really like it so far. I would recommend.
