Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 222 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed This has nothing to do with the product. The GE contractors are limited to installing the product at home whose plumbing outfits are made of PVC pipes. Most homes I know are fitted with PVC pipes for plumbing. I've selected this product because I owned several GE appliances that lasts for years and reliable. Please review your contract requirements and restrictions. The contractors refused to install the product due to technicality or policy restrictions. This will only increase your clientele interest thus losing revenues. January 21, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk Bought this product 1 year and 3 days ago. When it first arrived, the blade holder inside was broke and needed to be replaced. Doesn't clean silverware at all. Cleans only plates and bowls pretty good. Just today the inlet water valve failed and needs to be replaced (coincidence that it fails just out of warranty.). Do not spend your money on this. It is junk. March 14, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Save your money! This is by far the worst dishwasher I have ever owned. The wash cycle takes far too long. Half the time the soap doesn't come out of the door insert. We were using tablets and switched to liquid and the soap still doesn't desolve. The dishes are either still dirty or they are covered in soap. The only plus is it is quiet. If you want dirty, soapy dishes plus a very long wash cycle, but need quiet this is the dishwasher for you. I don't know if we can take it back at this point, but it is worthless for us to have.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible dishwasher. Don't buy this dishwasher was advertised as a steel tub but when I received it, I realized it was not steal tub also after installation I realized that the dishwasher was damaged with a huge crack I had to have it replaced.Takes a very long time for a wash cycle and doesn't dry yourself the trouble and do not buy this washer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great, works quietly We replaced a dishwasher that leaked and moaned. This model is nice inside and out. And, it operates quietly. My husband had no problem installing it. GE is a name I can trust. February 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not satisfied - let the other reviews speak for themselves. Be prepared for extremely L O N G wash times. With unit set to Normal cycle and Heat Boost expect wash cycle to run almost 2 hours, even before the dry cycle kicks in. It does an "ok" job on washing but if you do not select heated dry, expect to towel dry your dishes, even if you start the washer before bed and open it in the morning. For the "steam" feature, no great plus. If I could return I would. January 31, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I am a reasonable person, and this is not a reasonable product! I've bought a lot of "stuff" in my 41 years, and this is the first time I've ever been so disappointed with a product, that I feel compelled to leave feedback about it. We replaced a 15 year old dishwasher and wanted something slightly better than middle-of-the-road, and opted for the GE, thinking it would be a solid design, from a known brand. This first big issue is that the soap dispenser only opens about 50% of the time. The second big issue is that the cycle takes about 1.5-1.75 hours of run time (not including a dry cycle). The pump goes on an off incessantly, causing one to believe it is malfunctioning. Apparently this is the intended design. It's incredibly annoying. When one opens the door, the door seal comes off with it, and must be reinstalled about twice a week. We have to run on "temp boost" to get dishes reliably clean. (never had to do this before) I wish I could return this piece of junk, I feel totally "taken" by GE on this one. Please take this post into consideration when planning your purchase. I'd avoid this product. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quietest Dishwasher ever This is the quietest dishwasher we have owned. I hardly hear it when it is in use and I love the alert button telling me that the dishes are clean. No more guessing did I run the dish washer today. Great buy for the money. Even the dogs are not afraid to lay in front of this one so quiet. June 24, 2014
