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

Front Control Dishwasher in Black with Steam PreWash is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1596.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Between this dishwasher and the GE Washing machine I bought from Home Depot I will never buy anot... Between this dishwasher and the GE Washing machine I bought from Home Depot I will never buy another GE appliance again! I have had problems with it from the start. Had service out several times. the service guy claimed (on both of my appliances) that I was using too much soap. I cut it in half. My dishes still do not come out clean. Now, the door to the detergent cup does not even open during the cycle! Absolutely the worst dishwasher I have ever had. I hope they will honor this extended warranty I bought with it because I want this fixed- or better yet, replaced!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mid-Price Range Quiet Dishwasher We bought this dishwasher as a replacement for our older dishwasher of a different brand. The noise difference when it is running is amazing! We used to wait until going to bed to start our old one because it was so loud. This one we hardly notice when it's running. We debated buying a more expensive one but didn't want to spend a lot for a new dishwasher. The prices was right on this one and it was worth every penny. The only thing I wish it had was a rinse only cycle but we hardly used it on our old one so I don't think we'll really miss it. We also really like the built in hard food disposer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet and capacious I've only had it for about two weeks, but I'm impressed by how quiet this dishwasher is, and how much it holds. It does a great job of cleaning dishes, and water jets are well designed to reach everything in the main racks, both top and bottom. I have two small complaints: there's no "rinse" feature, so if you leave food in it for a while, it will get dry and crusty. (Having said that, the "steam" feature seems to do a good job of loosening old food.) The other issue is that there isn't enough water coming through the silverware basket, so sometimes a couple of those items come out dirty. Oh, another minor thing: there's no timer, so you don't know how far along a load is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use I have had this dishwasher for a while now and I really like it. I changed from a dishwasher that had the buttons on the top of the door. I had to have it fixed 4 times in 3 years!! I eventually just trashed it. I wanted a simple dishwasher that didn't have a lot of bells and whistles. It does what it's supposed to do. I would recommend this dishwasher.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete Garbage Do nt buy this. We bought one in March and it lasted about 3 weeks.After that it became very difficult to get it to start. You get a flashing " start" button indicating the door s not shut properly. It turns out to be a design flaw that causes the door sensor to easily mal function. GEis totally aware of this as when you call they know exactly what you are talking about. To get it fixed the technician has to come twice. The first time they fiddle with and can probably get it to work for a short time ( in our case less than a day) Then they will order a new door and we are still waiting for this. Hopefully the new door fixes it. If you search on the web you will see this is well documented. Don't buy this product and I would question all GE dishwashers as they probably share design features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was hesitant to purchase after reading reviews, but so far so good. I've had this dishwasher for 3 weeks now, and have nothing bad to say so far. Does a great job of getting the dishes squeaky clean, and dries thoroughly. I was extremely hesitant to purchase given the reviews on the site, but decided to take the leap for myself. At this point I am very happy with the dishwasher, and have not had any of the problems mentioned to date. I am extremely finicky consumer, and will keep my review updated should the situation change. Extremely quiet by the way. I guess I didn't realize how loud my old dishwasher was until I got this one!
