Questions & Answers


What is the cycle time from start to finish?

Asked by Queen October 24, 2020

The worst piece of crap I ever bought. Did the morons who designed it realize it was supposed to hold dishes and glasses

Asked by Mayor October 19, 2020

I love our new dishwasher and find the design is fine. We have an overlapping ceramic countertop, it tucks under there perfectly. Also, we needed the controls on the front face, as we would not be able to reach them if they are on the top. We have all black appliances, shiny black, so this matches fine.

is the stainless smudge proof

Asked by bob October 18, 2020

My dishwasher is leaking in the front like some of the reviews says it does. Did anyone get this problem fixed?

what does dBA mean?

Asked by Ree August 22, 2020

Hi Ree - Thanks for considering GE! Decibel Ratings (dBA) are often used when describing sound levels of appliances. The lower the dBA, the quieter the dishwasher (18 dBA - Normal breathing; 38 dBA - A soft whisper; 48 dBA - Libraries; 58 dBA - Moderate rainfall. Information provided by The League for the Hard of Hearing). We'd love to have you in the family. Keep in touch at Sue

is old dishwasher removal and installation included?

Asked by jrc August 18, 2020

Yes the old dishwasher was removed. I installed the dishwasher my self in about an hour.

is instillation part of the purchase or a separate cost

Asked by dishwasher August 13, 2020

It's a separate cost but, if you want clean silverware and dishes that aren't soaking wet after they are "done", pick another dishwasher.

I like my new dishwasher, the only thing I wish the controls were up top so that my 18 month old grandson can’t push the controls. Other then that it’s great.

Great for price
Customer review from logo
I am very happy with this model. Not overly loud. Wash seems to be good. No spots on the dishes. I wanted a stainless steel tall tub but went with the plastic tub to help with price. So far so good. Some of the bad reviews almost made me not any to purchase this model. However to be fair this machine is for weekly use not necessarily for daily use. I did the install personally so I am happy with the ease it took.

Excellent quality always from GE
Customer review from logo
Great quality as always from GE. Never have i owned a dishwasher that could wash pots and pans along with my normal dishes which is alot for a house of four occupants 2 of which are children that make messes like you wouldn't believe. Bit on the costly side but in my opinion worth every penny. the new slate fingerprint resistant material is sleek and lives up to it name. sticky fingers oily fingers forget about it never worry about it again. This unit comes with a very powerful motor allowing for flawless clean and much more silent than my last unit. this unit compliments my French door slate fridge and stove wonderfully. if you know anything about plumbing and simple electrical the manual is super easy to understand and makes for an easy fast install. This dishwasher also has tons of features including a steam sanitation which is great this day in time and the rest to meet all your other needs. What else can I say Great product! way to go GE!

Fairly quiet, my wife and I love the Slate look even better than stainless steel! Very low key cool. Going to look for matching appliances for the rest of the kitchen.

Customer review from logo
the dishwasher is awesome compared to our old builder's grade one that came with the house. I installed in myself but ran into a problem. Don't know if I caused it or it was messed up before me. I hand started the adaptor fitting you have to buy to hook up the water line. Never been a fan of Garden Hose threads, especially plastic, and this experience didn't make it any better. I couldn't get it to not leak at that connection. I pulled it back out and removed the water valve and sure enough the first 3 threads 22

Works Great but Plastic Broke within a month
Customer review from logo
I bought this GE appliance in July by August the top plastic part the secures the function buttons keeps popping off. I have tried to pop it back together but the buttons have shifted. I emailed GE and have not received a response but an email offer to buy an extended warranty, sad! I really like the overall machine but would hope it lasted longer then a month.

I wanted to love this dishwasher because the one it was replacing was over 15 years old. Not only did it take almost three hours for them to install the dishwasher but I suspect that it was improperly installed. The washer door feels like there is a slight gap on the left side and I noticed about a week ago that it was leaking water on my floor mid-cycle. I have run the washer without anything inside and it still leaks about 3 tablespoons of water every time. I am angry -- I tried contacting GE support and they did not respond to chats, emails, or phone calls. I want someone to fix this because it is a brand new dishwasher and still under warranty. I should not have a new appliance that works worse than my 15 year old replaced one. Extremely disappointed.
