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.

This dishwasher replaced an entry level GE that worked great. It was just too noisy. Anyway, I bought this for price, looks and low noise. After four uses, this washer won't dry. It 's on the highest dry level and I tried using Jet Dry per GE's suggestion. The inlet water temp hasn't changed from using my old dishwasher and the dishes were bone dry with the old GE. A GE service tech is scheduled to look at it. Hopefully the heating element can be adjusted or replaced. If the tech says there's no problem, then I will exchange it for a different model or brand. Also, there was a strong plastic smell that appears to diminish after each use.

This product came installed in a newly built condo. More often than not I need to rewash most of the dishes after they've gone through, including the heavy duty cycle. Typically the majority of dishes on the top rack still have food on them and some of the utensils. Additionally, it's a gamble as to whether or not the soap dispenser opens during a cycle. This dishwasher is now being used only as a drying rack for hand washed dishes until it is refunded and removed or replaced.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this dishwasher in august it quit working in march
Happy with this dishwasher- although sometimes the detergent door doesn't open, which requires the load to be re-ran. Used to run very quiet not so much anymore :(
GE® DISHWASHER WITH FRONT CONTROLS GDF510PGDWW

I bought this dishwasher brand new 3 years ago and ever since then it has never fully got my dishes clean. It consistently leaves soap residue no matter what type of dish soap I use. Also, when I put it on the light cycle it still runs for about an hour and a half. This is the worst dishwasher I have ever had!

It is making lot of notice and sometimes dishes are not clean

We had this installed in our house last year and am completely unsatisfied. The wash/dry cycle is 3 HOURS! And everything inside is wet when it is apparently "done". Also, lately we've noticed that the soap dispenser is not dispensing. After a full cycle the detergent will be running out of the open compartment and leaking all over the silverware.
