Customer Questions & Answers

Does this have touch controls or knobs?

I want a dishwasher that has knobs and not a touch control pad. Which does this have? I can't tell from the photos posted.
Asked by: tp95037
Touch. I know this sounds crazy but we actually read the manual b/c there are some nuances with the control that are not very intuitive (pressing the Start button and holding for three seconds to stop it from beeping, things like that).

Customer Reviews

24 in. Front Control Dishwasher in White with Steam PreWash is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 1844.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has draining issues Gets dishes very clean but does not drain completely. Water is left on door, where silverware rack is and bottom. Have to leave door open after emptied to air dry the machine.
Date published: 2015-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher This dishwasher works great. Cleans and dries dishes very good. The only thing I don't like about it is it takes about 2 hours to run.
Date published: 2014-12-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Much smaller inside than some models, especially older ones Bought this for a replacement to a 13 yar old dishwasher that finally failed. Seems great in the store, but has so many shortcomings in actual use. New style dishes, oversized, do not fit in the racks properly. Interior size of this dishwasher is noticably smaller than my previous built-in. The racks are not adjustable in any meaningful way. The top rack glass/stem holders are flimsy and do not stay 'up' or lock to the sides of the rack. using an in-door utensil holder is not practical unless all your dirty dishes are organized prior to loading the dishwasher. Pass on this one and make sure what you buy is both big enough and usable in a practical way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality does not dry This dishwasher does not dry what it has washed. Its a bad sign when you call GE 4 days after installing the machine and you are told they have had a large number of complaints about the machine not able to dry. GE will do nothing to help you and you are basically stuck after you have spent hundreds of dollars for a machine with a huge design flaw. Btw that is what the tech from GE told me when he came to my house. His words were there is a design flaw the machine can not heat the water and does not take in enough water for hot water to even reach it from a water heater. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE IT IS NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible GE Dishwasher The GE dishwasher is so bad that we called for a repairman to fix it. He said there was nothing wrong. Our complaints? The silverware and some dishes do not dry and the cycle is too long (over 2 hours). We have to hand dry many items and we cannot run the dishwasher quick enough to wash a first batch of dishes and then wash a second batch while having a large group of people over for dinner. Our old GE dishwasher was way better. Also, the racks in the dishwasher are not conveniently designed to accommodate various types of dishes. We've had it almost a year and haven't yet figured out how we are supposed to load it. We had no problem with our old dishwasher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GE dishwasher works great Recently purchased my first home and I had the entire kitchen remodeled, including the purchase of all new appliances. After doing research and reading reviews, I decided to purchase this one. I've had it for about a month. Overall, I am very happy. It cleans great and is not noisy. I can hear a faint hum in the next room, but it is barely noticeable. The heated dry also works well if you leave the dishes in for a while after the dishwasher has shut off. I will usually run it in the evening and take the dishes out in the morning, and everything is dry. I'm not crazy about the handle, it is slightly more difficult to open and close than a traditional handle. I originally didn't want a "bar" handle because I was afraid it would stick out too far. Otherwise, everything works great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is not worth the cost The cycle lasts at least three times longer than our last GE saving? I don't think so! The dishes come out wet at the end of the cycle...even with the heated dry on. The glasses come out with a very heavy white film...even using all the recommended settings & cleaning products. We never had any of these problems with our previous GE dishwasher...this product is a dud. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Both good and bad Ok so after a week the good is, super quiet and sleek looking. Bad is that the dishes don't come out dry, not sure what the deal with that is but they have to sit in there all day to dry after being washed. We also noticed that if there is any food stuck on the plates or silverware they don't come clean. Like my hubby said, nothing like washing the dishes before putting them into the dishwasher :( The not good or bad for us part is that thing takes a long time to wash. Over 2 hours. HOpe it was worth it, first dishwasher we have owned and we had to redo all our countertops to make it fit so an expensive add on to our family.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good bang for the buck! This is a nice dishwasher for the price. It does a great job of cleaning, but it doesn't seam to dry the dishes all of the way, or even most of the way. There seems to be a lot more water left over, especially when comparing it to the basic Whirlpool that it replaced.
Date published: 2014-09-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal unit for my purposes. Easy to install. Plumbing fittings have been changed since my last dishwasher installation, requiring a trip to the Home Depot. That was irritating, otherwise I would have given this unit a 5 star. Works well and is relatively quiet. I am satisfied!
Date published: 2014-09-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The biggest appliance regret we've had. It's been serviced twice since we purchased it a year ago. It still doesn't get our dishes clean, despite loading it according to the manual, and buying the recommended soap. I'm so entirely disappointed with this dishwasher. I miss my old one.
Date published: 2014-09-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not pleased with washer. Quiet, but does not do a very good job on the dishes. Black on inside makes it very hard to see where you are putting the glasses and dishes. Very poor arrangement for putting in the utensils. When you close door, glasses have tendency to fall.
Date published: 2014-06-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from Great Dish waster Easy to install and comes with everything you need. I installed it in no time at all. Cleans dishes great, Is a tad noisy but not loud enough to bother me. Put for the price style and size it is perfect. I bought this product because of the price and movable utisle holder that can be placed outside of the basket opening it up for more pans, pots, and plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice! Controls are easily read and selection choices are more than other brands. This dishwasher is extremely quiet and the perfect choice for those homes where the kitchen is adjacent to family rooms. Great choice for the price.
Date published: 2014-09-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features for the money If you want a nice looking, tall tub, with a food grinder as well as a delay start for a decent price, this machine is a great choice. I see that folks have had trouble getting the dishes dry. If you put the cutlery basket on the lower rack, not the door, and take off the blue cover pieces that are on top, it helps a lot. That thing is more complex than it needs to be, and it gets in the way. VERY satisfied.
Date published: 2013-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier. This is a great dishwasher. Extremely quiet and my dishes have never been cleaner. Gets off all the baked on stuff and my glassware just sparkles! Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from Cleans my dishes, keeps to itself.. Dishwasher works well. It takes longer to run than previous model, but I guess that is the "Energy Efficiency" thing. Noise dampening blanket that came with DW was very, very thin, so I reused my old one. I don't think this one is any louder that old one, but with all the start/stop cycles you might notice it for a while. Install was easy. HD hauled my old one away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 1 out of 5 by from Stay Away! Do not buy this dishwasher. In fact do not buy any GE product. I purchased this dishwasher and had GE send a repairman out 3 times. It still doesn't work and I have yet to have a resolution. I understand that you can occasionally buy a product that is a "dud", but in this case the GE customer service has been horrible. I have had this unit for over a month. I called customer service the day after I received it and told them it didn't work and they continue to waste my time having to wait for a repairman and I still don't have a resolution or working dishwasher.

Date published: 2014-09-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal! Quite Quiet! It does take a long while to complete a cycle. But everything comes out clean. And that is the point, isn't it? There is a time delay if you want to run it during off peak energy use hours. The heated dry works fine on everything except plastics. Plastic items still come out wet. I don' know if any dishwasher gets plastics dry. The insulation does a GREAT job of reducing noise, of course. But it also keeps the granite above our dishwasher cool, which I didn't consider. The motor section is very slim and sits very close to the floor. This provides a little extra vertical space inside the dishwasher. I think the utensil holders are pretty straight forward and work fine if you load them as the instructions recommend. I have read reviews about problems with this dishwashers detergent door. GE must have redesigned and improved the detergent door. The utensil rack doesn't interfere with the detergent door at all, as far as I can tell. I load the racks as recommended in the instructions and I haven't had any problems with glasses (or anything else) falling over. In short, I think this is an excellent dishwasher. With the Home Depot special that is currently offered - total all in price around $450 delivered and installed - This is truly a Great Deal!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a great idea We have had this for about 8 months. The "features" sound like they would be good but it is hard to tell. The heat dry works well, and sani booster and steam seem to work. The soap dispenser is blocked by utensils if the removable utensil tray is full, this causes the soap to be ineffective and actually stays in the dispenser. Rather strange when the compartment door for the soap slides open when in use. The tub does not drain, I had a technician come out from GE and repair it. He replaced the main board and we confirmed working. Three weeks later about three or four uses as we were out of town for one of the weeks, I have found the tub not draining again. I would love to replace this piece of junk but I just spend $400 + on it. At least it is easy to schedule a technician, hopefully he replaces the whole thing and this is just a lemon as so far product reviews have misguided me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Do not buy. Dishwasher is poorly made, components are unreliable. The door and racks are flimsy. The Drain pump failed less than 60 days after I had it professionally installed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beware..... home depot will not install this dishwasher Or any dishwasher if you don't have an "air vent" Beware..... home depot will not install this dishwasher Or any dishwasher if you don't have an "air vent" on your sink. They did not inform me of this when I purchased the dishwasher. I purchased another brand dishwasher from them 3 years ago and I had NO problem with them installing it. I had to hire someone to come in and install this GE for me. I am sure the dishwasher will work great now that I have it installed. If that changes I will be back here to tell you about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice product Bought this a few weeks ago and have used it several times. The unit cleans well and holds a ton of dishes. My only complaint is that it does not dry the dishes very well even on heated dry. Other than that I am very happy with the unit and hope I get years of service out of it.
Date published: 2013-02-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher We've found that using the light setting doesn't always get the dishes clean and perhaps it's the soap tabs we use as they are only partially dissolved. The other settings work just fine and it's a nice dishwasher. It's not as large as my old one, but that's my fault, I should have measured more completely before buying, but this easily fits everything we need for a family of five and we can go two days before having to run a load. My biggest surprise was how quite the unit is. My old washer wasn't noisy, but compared to this, it was a brass band. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Choice Purchashed this Model in Nov. of 2012. Have replaced the Control board, Thirmister, Temp Control, and Timer. Have had a new kit to extend the cycle time installed to try and get dishes clean. Quite a bit of replacement parts for a machine less than 6 months old.
