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:
I purchased this diswasher three months ago. I must say I only ran it twice and then it stopped running. I had to call GE to come out and service the appliance. The technician was unable to locate the exact problem and ordered a number of parts for the appliance. I did not expect a brand new appliance to be faulty after using it twice. The appliance is now working.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Dishwasher is very quiet. Dishes come out clean. I do wish the dishes would come out a little drier after the cycle has finished.
dishwasher cleans dishes - but dishes stay wet after drying
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works great. Reliable thus far. I like it. Isn't too loud. Actually, it's pretty darn quiet.
Not too Happy
My wife and I bought a newly constructed home with all new appliances on June 12, 2014. Your dishwasher was one of them. Within a couple of weeks the rubber seal around the door was coming off and making it difficult to shut. In addition, it doesn't really dry our dishes very well. We have taken this complaint to the builder and await to see what they say.
We are happy with its performance

It is very quiet and does a very good job cleaning the dishes. They come out sparkling!
Very disappointed with this "upgrade"
from Monroe, OH, United States
This was the upgraded model that was available from our builder. "Heated dry" cycle still leaves items wet and the interior very wet. The interior space is good. Controls are to "touchy" - virtually starts on its own when brushed up against the control panel. Does run fairly quietly.
Quiet, easy to operate

This dishwasher came with my new home and I am very happy with it.
Unhappy New Home Owner w/ Dirty Dishes
from Clermont, FL
This GE Model dishwasher was what was installed in our newly constructed Home, but we've regretted not selecting another model ever since as we've had nothing but troubles with this dishwasher. The Service Repair people are great but who wants to schedule multiple service calls in a brand new home. Model finally seems to be working properly now, however there's still a very strong plastic smell every time you open the door to load/unload the dishwasher. Save your money, buy another brand or model. :(
Cleans great, but takes forever!
from Atlanta, GA, United States
Came with our newly built home. This dishwasher has never had any trouble getting all dishes flawlessly clean, but its run time is 2 hours!! Last dishwasher ran about 30 mins so I'm always waiting for it to finish. Not too noisy and really cleans well. No build up inside the appliance in the 3 months we've been using it.
