Rated 1 out of 5Â by COPYCAT NEEDS CONSTANT REPAIR
I purchased this a year ago it has been serviced 3 times. Once for a broken electronic board during the 1st week. The second time because the top arm fell off. The 3rd time because of a leak. Guess what the top arm fell off again yesterday. That makes 4 service calls in 15 months.There was nothing touching it. My wife was loading the bottom. It might be a factory defect. If you purchase this by the 5 year guarantee or you'll be paying for all the service that this piece of junk needs. It also runs for about 3 hrs to wash a load. How is that energy efficient?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CollegeGirl2012 Solidly performing dishwasher.
Home Depot's delivery and Install team were efficient. The dishwasher is solidly built and works as advertised, especially using the little packets of dish washing soap provided with the machine. A new feature we discovered is that after starting a load of dishes, if you open the door for any reason (e.g., add a dish or cup, etc) one needs to push the "Start" button before closing the door, otherwise, the wash cycle does not continue. Other than that, operation is straight forward and we are pleased with the results after several weeks of regular usage.

Cleans well. Very quiet (as quiet as our $800 Kenmore was). I don't like the silverware racks. Locations are fine but they are cumbersome to lift out off of their hooks and the compartments are strangely sized. Still, the silverware gets clean - so no harm no foul... Not many features, but we replaced it with a unit that had lots of features and we pretty much only used on of them. Lots of plastic components on this, so longevity is a question. Talk to me in 8 years and I'll let you know how it lasted. As of now, we are completely satisfied though.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KMWin I love this dishwasher
I read most of the reviews for this dishwasher and thought I was going to be so disappointed because there were a lot of people who didn't think it was a good purchase. But I didn't want to spend $800 on a dishwasher so we went with this one anyway. I don't always write reviews but after having this one for a month, I felt I needed to give my opinion because it's totally opposite of what I read. Now, I will say that the dishwasher we replaced with this one was 11 years old, very loud and it cleaned horribly in it's last days. This one is pretty quiet. You can hear it doing it's thing but it's not obnoxious and we don't have to turn the TV up when it's running. It cleans our dishes wonderfully! We do lightly rinse our dishes before loading them but they're spotless when they're done. I don't have any issues with how we arrange the dishes like I read in some reviews. It's got so much room so it's easy to wash those oddly shaped bowls, etc. I love the silverware and the wine glass holders. I don't know about the complaints regarding the heat dry because we always air dry our dishes and I don't think it takes any longer than our other dishwasher did. In the end, it's a great dishwasher for the price so I hope that someone who's unsure about this one but doesn't want to pay $400-500 more should definitely consider it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Flyerfan4evr Nice bargain, no-frills Dishwasher
Ok so our very old Kenmore washer died on Presidents Day and we are not able to afford a nice pricey model with all the bells and whistles so I knew not to expect too much of this model. Of course all the HD stores in my area were wiped out of their in-store stock so I had to order this one online because it was one of the cheaper models and could get here first. Frigidaire's were cheaper but had horrible reviews so went with the GE.
Delivery: the Delivery was perfect, on-time and quick. They use an automated phone system to let you know when they are scheduled to arrive in a 4 hour window the night before, then an automated call to let me know they were 30 minutes away, followed by a call from the driver when he was 10 minutes away. The guys unpacked the new unit and took away our old one in 5 minutes. They also gave me a universal dishwasher install kit which was awesome since I thought I had to buy that separately.
Installation: Install was ok, I am not the most handy but managed to do this on my own. Most headaches were with my existing crusty old plumbing fittings not the new stuff. It wasn't complicated, just a drain hose, water supply line and power. Make sure to level it and use plenty of teflon tape-very important!
Pros: Nice sleek black front. Deep tub can fit a lot more than the old Kenmore with a lot more sprayers. Just a few simple buttons on the panel to operate it. It's a little quieter than the old one and would not consider it "noisy". You will hear it running, it's not silent :)
Cons: Don't like the individual silverware basket holders but we just leave the baskets open and throw the silverware in loose. Also once it starts you don't know when it will be done, there is no status or way of knowing what stage it's on. Must use the Heated Drying option which adds another hour to the cycle. If you don't use it, everything is dripping wet when its done.
