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!

Very quite and my dishes are dry when the cycle is completed, my old one always left my dishes wet.
from Queens NY
It doesn't have a Sabbath mode so if I don't remember to keep the door open with a towel before the Sabbath, I can't load the dishwasher till after the Sabbath. This makes for a dirty kitchen and it is most annoying.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Gritty Film on Dishes
from Houston, TX, United States
This appliance came with our home we purchased a year ago. We have done everything we can think of to get our dishes clean, but nothing works. At first we thought it was because it wasn't getting hot enough water. We fixed that, but the dishes still came out with a gritty film on them. Even the door of the dishwasher had grit on it. We tried using more soap and various settings. We tried changing how we loaded it. As far as we can tell, the problem is the dishwasher.
Quiet and Clean
from Boise, ID, United States
This dishwasher is virtually silent. No buttons facing out so you have nice clean look. Cleans dishes amazingly!

Extremely disappointing appliance
My wife and I designed and built a new house, moved in May 2015. We bought all GE Cafe series kitchen appliances (gas range, dishwasher, French door refrigerator, microwave, range hood) and have been disappointed in both the fridge (CYE22TSHSS) and the dishwasher. We've had our appliance/service company that installed the units out twice for the poor performance of the dishwasher. I could go on about how I pre-wash everything that goes in before a cycle, how almost nothing in the top rack gets clean, and so forth but I'm tired of 7 months of battling with the appliance company about things we "should try" to enhance the performance. I clean the filter after every cycle, I run hot water before every cycle, I run the BOOST and STEAM and HEATED DRY features and the issue remains, this dishwasher does not do it's job whatsoever. Frustrating and insanely annoying.
Quiet while in use
This is the quietest dishwasher I have ever heard! I had to question if I turned it on. The adjustable shelf is a nice feature when arranging large items.
Second time buyer!
from Decatur, IL, United States
Loved my last Cafe sereies washer enough that I decided to replace with another when the old one dveloped enough problems and had to replace. Great look very quiet. Hope this one last like the last.
