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!

A good basic Model dishwasher
from Lees Summit, MO, United States
I like the placement of the jets on this lower priced model. I don't like the silverware tray. it could be deeper. The function buttons are pretty simple.
from Minnesota, United States
This dishwasher was not our choice of appliance as it came with the new home.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great Features/Quiet Operation!
from Brookings, OR, United States
I am thoroughly impressed with this GE model, as I've had high end expensive dishwashers rated the quietest on the market & this sounds as quiet. That's probably my biggest complaint how loud a dishwasher sounds because I run it at night when we are watching TV. My dinner dishes are slightly thicker than normal dinnerware due to the border design & they fit the rack perfectly without me struggling to get them in place. Tall wine glasses fit the upper rack too. I like the "light" wash setting for quicker washes when plates aren't that dirty because I hand rinse them anyway before loading the dishwasher so we don't clog the drain line.
would not buy again
from Rochester, NY
Dishwasher doesn't really clean dishes well unless I rinse them off first. The silverware container is awkward to load and unload. Also, sometimes it leaves soap still in the soap cup. All in all, I'm not very satisfied with this unit.
Not what I expected
from Ashburn, VA, United States
Dishwasher was part of a new home appliance package. Our first unit didn't drain the water. After two attempts to fix, it was replaced after going without a dishwasher for 4 weeks. The current unit is noisy, takes a long time to cycle, sometimes doesn't drop the soap, and often leaves water on the dishes.
Not what I was expecting!
This was included in our new home purchase. Looks great but the sounds that come from it when running are loud and annoying. It washes just fine and have no issue with the cleaning capability.
from Eustis fl
We got the dishwasher with our new home it's a great machine
thought is was good
from Salt Lake City, UT, United States
I purchased the dishwasher and was very disappointed. The dishwasher wouldn't clean my dishes, even after rinsing then before loading, and would leave food particles on the door and on top of the dishes. Instructions state that to run your water until it gets hot first before starting the dishwasher. Not very effective or efficient.
from Lincoln, CA, United States
Works well, tough to load and quite low. All in all it's a nice product and very quiet.
