I've been extremely pleased with the Cafe dishwasher by GE. The cleaning, drying, interior design, and noise level are all big improvements over the 7 year old KitchenAide than I replaced. During the installation the serviceman mentioned that I should run the hot water, making sure that it is HOT, before turning on the dishwasher. This was a tip that has made a big difference! I guess that the dishwasher fills up so quickly with water that it is a huge disadvantange if you are still waiting for your tapwater to get hot.Overall, I am pleased with the product and would recommend it to others.

I should have returned this dishwasher immediately. I constantly have to rewash the dishes, because they have a terrible odor at the end of the wash cycle. I always rinse the dishes clean before putting them in the dishwasher. I run the water from the faucet until it's hot, so the hot water is immediately available to the dishwasher when I start it. I use Cascade detergent. I wash the dishwasher itself be spraying the inside and wiping it clean. I've cleaned out the filter, even though there isn't anything in there since I rinse the dishes clean before putting them in there. I've tried washing the dishes on Normal, Deep Clean, Anti-Bacterial, and all cycles produce smelly dishes. I've tried running the Rinse & Hold cycle after the wash cycle to give them an extra rinse (which I should not have to do). Nothing works. This has been a problem since we purchased the machine. When I wash my dishes by hand they do not have an odor. This is an expensive dishwasher that I should be able to rely on to produce clean dishes with EVERY wash. I also purchased a GE CafÃ© refrigerator, stove, and a GE microwave, all of which I am very happy with, but I am extremely disappointed in this dishwasher, and I would not recommend it to anyone. It was a complete waste of money!

Purchased this two days ago, first load came out sparkling clean. Fabulous
I just had the dishwasher installed and it looks fabulous. I love the control panel features. The water bottle cleaning jets are awesome!
It's a dishwasher
from Seattle, WA
What can I say - it works. It's way better than the 1970s one that we had so it's hard to compare, really. Design and functionality have come a long way in 45 years!

This is my second ge cafe dishwasher, I was very happy with my prior dishwasher at my other home, it's still working good only one time we had to change control panel, but this one I got installed yesterday, used first time last night, dishes cleaned good, but water did not dry, heated dry was on so I do not what's was the problem. Also I did not received the use and care manual with my new dishwasher,
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Doesn't get dishes clean, poorly designed racks
from Seal Beach, CA, United States
This is the most expensive dishwasher we've ever purchased. Wanted all matching appliances for our kitchen remodel. This has been extremely disappointing...doesn't get dishes clean, the wine glass racks are difficult to use. The bottom racks are not well designed as bowls "tip" and then interfere with the water spinner.

Quiet, Very Quiet
from Wilmette, IL, United States
My old dishwasher was noisy. This one is very quiet. Since it is near where I watch tv, that is important to me. It also cleans dishes very well. No complaints about that. On the negative side, the capacity seems a bit small and the top shelf has a sharp edge which is annoying. Also, you can't see how much time remains on the cycle once the wash has begun.
