Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TeleJohn Purchase something else
Bought this at Home Depot about 18 months ago. 1 month later GE had to replace the control board and pump. Constant trouble with the cleaning of dishes. They either come out clean or something happens where the dishes don't appear to even be washed. I verify the arms are free to move before I start the dishwasher each time. GE tells me there is nothing wrong but the dishes are dirty .... since it is an occasional problem, they can diagnose it. If it happens again, which it will, I am going to replace this dishwasher with another brand even though it is still under an extended warranty I bought. If it doesn't work right, it is useless.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SM Glad this is discontinued
Got this yesterday (last one). Returning it today. High pitched whine. Does not dry the dishes AT ALL. How can it be energy efficient if you have to run the water in the sink before turning it on? This is garbage. What a waste of time and energy. This has completely turned me off of GE.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jason Your kitchen will smell like plastic
Worst dishwasher I have ever encountered. Hoped the disgusting plastic smell would go away after a few cycles...no such luck. It leaves every item in the machine smelling like plastic after you pull it out.
Top it off with the excessive cycle time other people are complaininh about...and you have this terrible excuse for a dishwasher. Do not waste your money on this rancid item.

Bought this unit in August 2015. Within 2 weeks the soap dispenser quit. Took several weeks to fix under warranty. We were able to use it with drop in soap blocks. This morning it won't work at all. It acts like the door is open but it isn't. Now another round with the warranty dept. Home Depot would have replaced it within 90 days but it's just past the cutoff now. And they don't cover re installation. Very disappointed with this purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Appaloosakeeper Wish I would have bought a different dishwasher
We purchased this dishwasher two years ago. Soap dispenser won't open sometimes even when silverware caddy is loaded correctly (it's situated too close to the soap dispenser). I can live with that. However I am frustrated with the following problems. The door seal has moved twice which caused leakage onto our floor. Now boost, sani, or dry cycle will not work; must be a heating element? Very unsatisfied from the beginning, and I usually love GE brand!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JD1964 Overall works well. Doesn't dry even with heated dry.
It's decent for the price. However, I've tried everything suggested, but the dishes are still wet even on heated dry. I've checked the temperature of my hot water, and it is over 130°. I use the heavy wash setting as suggested, as well as the wash temp boost feature. Nothing works well. In addition, I've had trouble with it getting the silverware clean. They must be rinsed well before putting in the dishwasher. This was a replacement for my GE Profile dishwasher due to a recall. I realize this machine is on the low end compared to the Profile, however I do expect all the features to work. Overall, I'm a little disappointed with this dishwasher.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Justin Get what you pay for
You get what you pay for with this dishwasher. It doesn't clean particularly well, even in the Heavy cycle. I use Finish Tabs detergent, which are solid tabs, not gelpacs. I have to use two, otherwise food bits are left on dishes. Also, the silverware basket isn't designed well. It has a bunch of little slots in the lid, where the handles go downwards thru the slots and the business ends stick upwards. I don't understand this design at all. My silverware frequently has food left on them. This dishwasher is not particularly quiet and doesn't run fast. But for $400, it works as well as I expected and gets the job done when I load up on detergent tabs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie Piece of trash
Bought from HD 13 months ago... how convenient for the dishwasher to die just after the warrantee. The control panel is totally hosed. Look online. Many many many of the Maytag dishwashers have problems with the control panel. Obviously a manufacture defect. Maytag DOES NOT take responsibility for it and wants to charge a couple hundred to replace. No wonder their guys are never busy fixing stuff... nobody wants to pay half the price of a dishwasher to repair a piece of trash. Also note that most people who have had their control panel replaced have had a re-occurrence and then decided they will NEVER BUY MAYTAG again. Now I have joined their ranks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cathy Product damaged and poor installation
I have purchased 2 of these dishwashers for a rental property within a 1 month period. The machine itself seems to work properly and the first one I purchased had no issues. The second dishwasher had a damaged kick plate (which I'm still waiting for the replacement and will have to install myself) and was not installed properly. The technician did not have it level and the door would only 45 degrees causing it to hit the cabinet which caused property damage. Machine has since been adjusted, but now I need to deal with the damaged cabinet. Overall dishwasher looks nice and the first tenants have not had any issues with it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle I hate, loathe and despise this dishwasher.
This dishwasher does NOT get dishes clean. The silverware nearly always comes out dirty, although it is placed into the rack *exactly* as the user manual describes. The top rack is shaped so that each time you open and close it, the glasses fall against each other and clink (hard). If you have large utensils (cooking/serving spoons, salad tongs etc) and lay them in the top rack, only one side gets clean - there is no way to lay them on their side. They say you can fit 12 place settings - but if you DO, don't plan on washing any pots or pans with them. The amount of leftover space once the plates go in is minimal. And this wouldn't be a huge problem except that one run cycle is 4 HOURS. I'm serious. I got this dishwasher also because I wanted a vent so I wouldn't have wet dishes. Well, too bad - even on heated dry (which makes the cycle even LONGER) the dishes are wet. I miss my old cheap Kenmore. I *hate* this dishwasher. HATE it. Buyer beware.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convinced Quiet Wash
Recently purchased this GE dishwasher and the contractor in fact installed it yesterday. He did a test run to make sure the fittings/pipes, etc. did not leak and I was oblivious that he had turned it on. Either I wasn't really paying attention or that it was that quiet. Yes, it was very quiet as far as dishwasher goes and it was very efficient. After the contractor left, I did a " light " load wash to wash away plates, dishes, etc. that had a light coating of dust due to the kitchen remodel and it performed wonderfully. Can't be any happier with the choice that I made and would recommend it. Make sure you know what your doing in terms of installation and again I had a professional person doing this to ensure this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lymanbek Great inexpensive dishwasher
I love the fact that this dishwasher doesn't cost a ton and still gets the work done. I like the silverware holder that nestles into the door. There are just enough functions, including steam which loosens soil prior to washing! Great washer at a great price!

This dishwasher takes over 4 hours to cycle and still dishes are not all clean, have had repair out they hooked it up to a computer and said everything checks out. I am sure they did not want to stay for the 4 hours it takes to cycle and actually see the results. The GE that it replaced ran 90 min cycles and the dishes always came out spotless. Service man actually told me that the new energy efficient models do not clean as well as the older models. Not sure whether is a lemon or this is what you get. Not happy with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Taz Great Value
General comments: This dishwasher is very quiet the microwave and range top hood fan makes more noise. The dishwasher is located adjacent to a great room/dining area and does not interfere with television viewing ore personal conversations.
I also purchased the install kit and that made things easy ( mostly because my man installed it for me, I watched). It made attachment to existing water supply line connector and garbage disposal simple. The kit only included one hose ring for the drain line so I did purchase one from local hardware store to ensure a non leaking attachment to the disposal.
I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a dishwasher, great value.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stillwashingbyhand Horrible experience
We bought this dishwasher based in part by the good reviews, and the price/features. So far we have received two units where the power plug is defective. Looks like a BAD design to me. The whole delivery/re-delivery/customer service experience has been poor. Not sure if we should even accept a replacement at this point or go with another brand, at another retailer. It would be our luck that this model breaks down a day after the warranty expires.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied An improvement over my old dishwasher.
I waited several months to give a review based on having more experience. I was amazed at the large capacity for dishes, since the long holder for utensils fits neatly inside the door, leaving more room for dishes. There is also a small basket to hold odd shaped or large handled utensils which fits at the side of the bottom rack. Why the bottom of the upper rack is wavy instead of flat is beyond me. It makes it harder to stack mugs, glasses, cereal and other bowls. There is a rack for each side to hold wine glasses and chopsticks. Really. If the rack had been flat it would have been easier to store ordinary dishes on each side by those of us kitchen drudges. I tried both he light and normal cycles, but since the time difference is not that great I use normal, which takes about 2 hrs./25 min. I'm told it takes about an hour longer than my old dishwasher since it uses less water. The user is given an abridged manual with no illustration for stacking dishes. I called GE and was sent a machine copy of the (complete?) manual with photos of stacking. Whoopee!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ValpoDave Worst Purchase ever...but Home Depot came thru
This dishwasher would neither clean nor rinse. Soap residue always left on the dishes. Went to HD, they said that we would have to have service. I brought up all of the 1 and 2 complaints and explained that this machine was doing the exact same thing and that it had nothing to do with a defective product. It was all about a product that was poorly designed and would never do an effective job in cleaning our dishes. HD agreed and allowed me to replace. That's why I shop at HD, but I will never buy another appliance from any manufacturer without first studying the reviews. Our replacement was a Whirlpool with a 4.8 rating. Wow...our dishes are clean and dry! Shame on GE for putting out such a poor product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MAAM2101 GE Dishwasher? Never again!
Never ever am I buying anything from GE again. We bought our GE dishwasher on September 2012 and by November 2013, the engine started leaking really bad for a couple of days, until it died on us. Mind you there is only two of us in the house, me and my husband-, and we only use our dishwasher a couple of times a week, if any, because we travel a lot. Aside from that I had to pay $99.95 to have some guy come to my home to tell me (in five minutes) that there is nothing to be done and that the change of the engine was going to cost around $400 (of course no warranty), which is what we paid for the dishwasher in the first place. Really bad experience!! Never again…

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rocco Worst Dishwasher Ever!
Have had this Dishwasher for less than a year. It leaks, the soap dispenser doesn't always open automatically during wash cycle, setting change on their own and the sanitize cycle doesn't always complete. Also, Loading is a nightmare as the configuration does not allow for larger items and if you can get them in, it is at the cost of washing fewer dishes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brewerx4 Definitely quiet!
I have a love hate relationship with my dishwasher. ..it is extremely quiet, cleans great and looks awesome. I love the design of the interior as well as the exterior. Washes good on light and normal load. Takes over an hour for the other settings. If you want to use the heat to dry...that takes over an hour just to finish that task. Have yet to use the sani boost so not sure how that particular part operates. Overall I think that I have made a wise purchase. It is a sound piece of equipment and hope to have many years of clean dishes to come... after all it is a G.E!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SooseaQ Definitely worth the price
I was not looking for a dishwasher with all the bells and whistles. I was getting my house ready to put on the market when the old one failed. I caught this one on sale prior to Black Friday and the price was smack in my ballpark. I was not sure what to expect since I was looking to save, but I was pleasantly surprised that this dishwasher is more than I bargained for. I had to put my ear up to it to hear that it was actually working and the Normal setting is fine enough for everyday dirty dishes. The added bonus is one of the two utensil racks can be moved to the door which is a feature my old dishwasher had that I loved because there is now more room to pack in a few more dirty dishes. Love, love, love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Abby so far, so good
We have used this for a couple weeks now & so far all the dishes are coming clean & we are having no issues. We love the lock feature..hold down lock button for 3 seconds & it locks all the buttons. This is a fabulous feature for our curious 14 month old who just loves buttons. Now he can push to his heart's content and not mess up the cycle. Our previous dishwasher didn't have this feature & we love this feature now. We have noticed we have much better results with cleaner dishes if we use the steam feature also.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Diana Not so sure about this one
Bought this in July, 2013. Have had it one month and not totally happy with it. It has a few nice features and is much quieter than my last dishwasher. But, it takes forever to wash a load, so not very energy efficient. Also, no matter what I do, it will not dry the dishes. I don't mean left slightly wet, I mean everything is very wet. That is with the heat selection on! Yes, I have followed all the instructions in the manual, turned the hot water temp up, Jet Dry, letting the water run for minutes before turning it on. Repair visit is in my future. Be sure to read reviews on other sites before buying this dishwasher. Wish I had.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by markb01 Does not clean
Note, I am comparing this dishwasher with a GE I bought in 1997.
Pros: This is much quieter than my previous dishwasher.
Cons: This washer does a much poorer job at cleaning the dishes (it's primary purpose) compared to the '97 model. Even at the maximum potscrubber settings, it just does not do a great job. In addition, if you have any large items (pots, large plates), items nearby will not clean at all (apparently, it has limited water flow direction), a problem I never had with my '97 model. Also note that the plastic pieces seem to break easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by harris Great dishwasher!
Purchased this dishwasher online. We live in a manufactured home with 23 year old plumbing. Needed a 24" unit to fit in the space. Home Depot was only place we found correct size unit. We installed the unit which took a little time but was easy. The dishwasher meets all expectations. Looks great, runs quiet, has three wash wands, three wash cycles plus automatic sensing cycle and steam prewash. The utensil trays fit on outside dish basket but can be used inside the basket if one chooses. Most importantly....dishes come out clean on all cycles. Price was a little more than we planned to spend, but WELL worth the cost. We couldn't be happier with the dishwasher. We highly recommend the it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jbmhgs Great Product definitly recommend to anyone on a low budget
I just installed it and used it last night it was awesome cleaned everything without leaving residue. What dishwasher at this price can you fit pots and pans on the top rack NONE this one can its great and very roomy, also used the steam to clean my babies bottles worked great no more having to hand wash them makes life easier for a mommy that's for sure, takes awhile though. Don't have to only use it at night cause its very quiet..I would recommend this dishwasher to anyone on a low budget its worth the money for sure! Only one thing have home depot install if you have an older home cause my old dishwasher was rigged in there bad so it was difficult to install on our own.
