We are generally happy with this machine but we gave it only 4 out of 5 stars because in order for it to do everything we want(perfectly clean and dry dishes that were only scraped or barely pre-washed by hand first), it takes a long time and a little work to figure it out.

Soap Dispensing Challenge:
For years we have used the same Shaklee powder soap and noticed a few times in a row with this new machine that our dishes were spotted, had undissolved soap chunks on them, and most of the soap was still gummed up in the soap dispenser. It turns out that if the silverware basket is completely full (one utensil in each mini slot), the soap dispensing may be compromised (even though the soap door does open during the cycle). The dispenser is located right in front of the utensil basket. Since the utensil basket is movable there is the option of moving it somewhere else in the machine and taking care not to block the dispenser door with other items. We like the utensils where they are so we just keep the single partition of the utensil basket that is immediately in front of the dispenser empty. This seems to work. The other thing we do is run the "BOOST" cycle because in this awful Chicago winter (worst in 15+ years) we think the water isn't getting hot enough to help dissolve the soap. Perhaps that latter isn't necessary but since making these 2 changes our dishes come out beautifully. The drawback to this plan are that we loose a tiny bit of silverware space (not a huge issue given that there are 2 whole utensil baskets) and that now our dishes take more than 2 hours to wash/dry! The settings we choose are: "auto-sense ( that is whether to wash heavy, light or auto-sense)", "boost" and "heated dry". Works well. Takes long. Also, we are still new to this machine so we may not know entirely how to use or troubleshoot our issues. We have only had it for 2 weeks but we use it at least once a day.

For the price and because it steam washes, we are still generally happy. ABT service was great.

Hope this helps someone.

The dishwasher has a very nice appearance from the front and very well situated shelving that can fit quite a large amount of product to clean. The control panel has fallen off more than a dozen times and is now loose. It doesn't sit right and have to get it serviced. It cleans well but at the same time we do a quick scrub before we fill it anyway. It's pretty quiet but not as quiet as some of the higher brands I have seen.

Poor design...

By 

from Louisiana, United States

Comments about GE 24" White Built-In Dishwasher:

GDT550HGD purchased December 2011. I have replaced the heating element 2016. I will be replacing the inter door due to leakage. Washer is quite. Washer is not designed for hard water areas. Hard water area will shorten the life of this machine. Place water filter and softener on water inlet and do not use liquid detergent.

    Love the quietness of it and the extra room compared to my old one. Am not crazy about the silverware trays in front; wish they were on sides

        Comments about GE 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

        An excellent machine that is not only good looking but functions very well. Racks don't necessarily slide out easily; bottom rack can tip forward fairly easily if there are only dishes in the front and none in the back. Also, silverware racks come off easily with a slight tug. If a knife gets slightly stuck when removing from the rack, it can fall right off. Very quiet, cleans well, dries well as long as the steam feature is on. Great product for the value.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Prompt, polite, professional. Machine was in brand-new condition and installation was neat, clean, and proper.

          I love the sleek look. I love that you can wash a load just on the top shelf and you don't have to waste water and money running the dishwasher if you don't have enough dishes to run a full load.
