Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roxy Basic machine with good and bad features ...
The best thing about this dishwasher is the knob control, which is why I bought it. I had already experienced a break-down of a 4-1/2 year old dishwasher having faux buttons that just pushed a contact area on a ribbon. I hope manufacturers stop making those!
The next best thing is the price - can't get much more reasonable. The low price probably explains the more negative aspects. There is not enough space between the top rack and ceiling, and it's not adjustable. The bottom rack doesn't seem to hold much, probably because of poor design. The plastic coated racks don't have "spikes", they are just "U" and "V" shaped curves. I find myself bending the wire to make glasses and pots fit.
Cleaning ability seems to be good, but I do always rinse my dishes with hot water before putting in the washer. I have noticed some spotting even though I use a rinse aid.
This washer has a feature to pre-heat the water so it starts out hot to clean better - that's neat!
Even though there is a heated dry feature, there will be pools of water on top of cups and glasses. No problem, I just take a clean towel to dry before putting away.
The dishwasher did not come with the insulation around it and I had to go purchase some batting myself before installation.
All in all, for the money this is a good basic washer that could use a better design of the racks so that it holds more.
I sure wish manufacturers would standardize the racks so they could be interchangeable between models and even brands!

This is a good basic dishwasher. Does not have many options but gets the job done (I use light wash heat dry only). Dishes comes out clean and dry. So far no complains.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Newbie I hate it!
This is what was in my apartment when I rented. It does not dry unless I open the door & pull out the shelves. I have dry soap from my last place & this dishwasher leaves soap powdered on my dishes. Worst of all, it doesn't get things clean! Even on the Hot Start feature. I have to completely clean my dishes before placing them in the dishwasher. Any small fleck of food, stays exactly where it's at throughout the entire cycle. I end up rewashing half the load! I expect more from GE!

I had the same dishwasher for 32 years with no troubles, until the plastic ring broken. I bought the same one online with no hassles. Jose came to install it quickly and efficiently.
It is a no frills dishwasher that does its job.
You can't beat Home Depots price. I don't know why people spend a thousand dollars on a dishwasher when this one is just fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FLAHWC Good Dishwasher for the money, easy to install, we did it ourselves.
This dishwasher is American made , and it works very well. Dishes complete the cycle spotless, and the Air Dry or Hot Dry option really is a good feature, save energy if you do the Air dry option, and leave the dishes for an extra hour or two in the dishwasher. Would definately recommend this purchase.

I've only had this dishwasher 2 weeks. So far, so good. It cleans well, although the heat drying isn't as good as other dishwashers I've owned. But for the price, this seems to be a good machine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Good inexpensive dishwasher
Does a good job of cleaning. Easy DIY install. The dishwasher was missing a roller for the lower tray when it arrived, called GE parts and they shipped the missing in a few days. Overall it was a good purchase.
