I like the features of this dishwasher, especially the upper silverware container. It allows you to put in spoons and forks without opening the door wide open. It is much quieter than my old dishwasher and the dishes come out clean! Something you should know..., if you are like me and don't like to use a heated dry cycle, you need to open the door after the machine concludes the cycle and leave it open for 3-5 minutes. You will find the dishes will be nice and dry. Don't do this and they will be wet. So be patient and you'll save time and electricity!!!

First I would like to say that the machine itself works fine and cleans dishes well, except for a couple of issues that have to do with the racks. Second I would like to say that I thought I had put a lot of research into this purchase, and had even taken a box of my dishes to the store to make sure they would fit nicely. I made the mistake of taking large items to make sure there was room for them, but not taking small items. So my main complaint with this dishwasher is that it is not user friendly as far as loading items. More on this later. I am happy with the cycle options and how the dishwasher works, except for the length of time it takes to run a load and that it lacks a quick rinse cycle. That would be helpful because due to the placement of the silverware rack, sometimes the soap dispenser cup doesn't open all the way, and half the soap is left in the cup. Then there is un-rinsed soap left on all the dishes. Without a quick rinse, I am forced to re-run the dishwasher on the light cycle, and I feel it is a waste of time, water and electricity. (And even the light cycle takes a very long time.) But the soap dispenser is more of a silverware rack placement flaw then a cleaning problem. The manual tells you not to place tall items in front of the dispenser door, but apparently "tall" is relative, and even less tall items can block it if you aren't careful. Other problems with the silverware baskets are the flimsy way they are attached to the racks and the large size "mesh" they are made of. Both the top and bottom rack have a silverware basket attached to the front of them. But the hooks that hold them on are very small, and we have had to learn not to pull on the baskets when rolling the racks forward. They pull right off. It's quite annoying, because they have a pull handle on them, and it is more intuitive to pull that handle than to reach in farther and pull the actual rack. I'm sure that with training and repeated basket falling, we will learn not to automatically reach for the handle. I mentioned mesh on the silverware baskets. For some reason, they felt having wide horizontal bars was a good idea. But they make great slots for your forks and spoons to slide right through and fall to the bottom when you are dropping them in. If they don't fall all the way through, then they just get stuck and jam up. I've never had this problem in the past with baskets whose "mesh" was just small squares. But hey, this way looks more stylish, so who cares if it's inconvenient and troublesome. Now on to my main complaint about this dishwasher. The tines in the racks are spaced too far apart. And the wires that make up the "floor" of the bottom rack are too far apart. That's not a problem for big items, but I have found that there are very few places where I can load my small items. And I wish I had thought to bring small items along when I tested models in the store. In the top rack, when I place small saucers between the tines, the "floor" of the rack does not hold them in place and they roll to the side and leave the tine area. In the bottom rack, there is one front row of tines where I can place small saucers, but there is a lot of competition for that row. In the bottom rack, the row of tines on the back half is so far apart, that I can only fit large plates in a row there. Or I can put large pots and bowls. But for medium pots, plates and bowls, they roll all around until I have placed in enough items so that the items themselves hold each other still. Forget about putting anything small there, because the wide spaces of the floor wires allow small things to fall part way through. Then they tilt and rattle. The net result of all this inconvenience is that I run out of places where small things can fit, so I have to leave a stack of the dirty small dishes out for the next load. And if I don't happen to have enough large items, then I have to run a load where half of the bottom rack is empty! How frustrating is that, to have things that won't fit in, yet still have huge empty spaces. I'm washing air, while half my dishes have to wait hours and hours until the next load. At first I thought that it was just myself being too picky, and being unused to the new dishwasher. I thought that if I gave it a few months, I would get used to the quirks of where things fit and don't fit, and work out a more efficient way to load the dishes. But after working with it, I now believe that the fault lies with the spacing of the tines and wires. And that is something you just can't always find out when doing on line research and examining many models in stores.

Comments about GE 24" Hybrid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought his appliance approx. 4 months ago and have been satisfied with it overall but have had 3-4 instances where the soap ray had not opened during the wash cycle and had to was everything over again by hand as the dishes and silverware had suffered baked on food and stains. Is there a problem with the soap trays not opening on this model????

Wish I had researched this purchase more

By 

from Massachusetts, United States

Comments about GE 24" Hybrid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I made a rush decision in purchasing this dishwasher because mine was broken. I wish I spent more time looking. This dishwasher does an ok job of washing dishes but it takes so long. Up to 2 1/2 hours with the dry cycle. The silverware rack on the bottom rack blocks the dishwasher tabs from coming out if you position it by the door. We moved it to the side and had better results. There is no rinse cycle which I miss. It does not wash as well as my 13 year old ken more did. The spacing of the tines to hold the dishes is not good for bowls. My glasses tip over easily on the top rack due to these little bumps on the upper rack.

Comments about GE 24" Hybrid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

I bought this dishwasher approximately two months ago and although it is quiet and looks nice it does not dry the dishes even with the heat sensor on and the soap dispenser does not work properly. (this is similar feedback to what others have written) Unsure why it does this.

Ease of operation

By 

from Omaha, NE, United States

Comments about GE 24" Hybrid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

The dishwasher is easy to use. I do get a little buildup on the inside of the door directly beneath the soap dispenser and on the racks but probably because of our hard water. I liked the location of the silverware holder on my last GE dishwasher but I will get used to it.

Great Dishwasher, but with a few engineering flaws

By 

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about GE 24" Hybrid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

My parents have been living with this dishwasher I picked for them, about 2 weeks now. Honestly, it's too bad to see it's discontinued, because it's a great feature package. Nice machine with premium features like dual silverware baskets, and a stainless steel door liner, with plastic tub. First impressions, the design is well thought out with a simple, clean look, and tactile buttons that give feedback when pressed. They're durable plastic. None of that junky membrane stuff that other brands have. Membrane buttons wear and crack after only a few years of use. the racks are nicely laid out, and the spread wide tines in the lower back, though not perfect for 100% of the dishes out there, are nice for larger stoneware, which seems to be the fad these days. One caveat is that the silverware baskets are 'outside' the racks, and not inside. So if you move or remove one/both of them, you don't gain any rack space. It's empty space. INSTALLATION: As an engineer, this was time consuming even for me. There was some assembly required with the cabinet brackets. The machine is so low to the ground, make sure you hook everything up before you push it back. The machine seemed very well built EXCEPT for the rear leveling legs. It seems like the screw holes for those were drilled and tapped at sloppy, incorrect angles. It is important to make sure the machine is absolutely level, or maybe even -1 degree back, so that soap tabs properly eject from the soap cup. This machine is very quiet. And it washes the top and bottom separately. It's barely noticeable unless you're in the kitchen. Something odd; the drain pump pulses when it drains. This seems to be normal, so don't be alarmed. Due to the fact that is uses such little water, it runs the spray arms separately, like I said. But the spray still seems powerful. With that said, it is necessary to use the silverware cell covers so items don't touch. If plates and silverware touch, they might not get clean. If everything is loaded properly and in their tines/cells, everything does come out very clean. The cycles are longer than your old 10-15 year old dishwasher. It uses half the water, so it takes double the time. It's not just GE, but all modern brands now. So schedule around the long cycles; like before bed time. One glaring issue with this whole series of GE dishwashers is the soap cup dispenser. It is awkwardly placed very close to the silverware baskets. So it IS possible if tall forks, knives or utensils are placed near it, it might not open, releasing the soap. Even then, there doesn't seem to be any water spray directed at the soap cup, so the soap is not flushed out all the time. It's even worse if you use powder. In summary, my parents are liking the machine, and we'll see how reliable it stays over time. I would recommend this model. And the issues it has, don't seem to be too critical, as all modern dishwashers are different and less powerful than their predecessors used to be.

VERY Quiet and Cleans

By 

from Franklin, VA, United States

Comments about GE 24" Hybrid Black Built-In Dishwasher:

Great Product - VERY VERY QUIET. I purchased this to replace one that was not working and i had my doubts. I never had a dishwasher that actually "dried" the dishes. When i ran it for the first time i had to double check to make sure it actually ran - they were spotless and dry!!1 I did not even hear it running at all. Great dishwasher for people with kids or babies too!! VERY VERY QUIET
