This dishwasher is poorly designed. The handle has broken after 2 years of use just from opening and closing the plastic wore out and snapped off. Now the power keeps cutting out and everything that ge tells me it could be you can't even buy parts for. I would never recommend a ge product since the "warranty" doesn't cover any of these manufacturer mistakes even though that's what a warranty is for. My last dishwasher lasted 15 years without any repair. 2 years, really? Things cost more nowadays and you can't even get quality products anymore.

Appliances look very nice in Slate. We have the matching suite and have loved all of them so far. We have not had the dishwasher long enough to speak on longevity but it all works well, the lights are great. The best thing is the 3rd shelf on top for flatware or other dishwasher safe cooking tools, ie wooden spoons, ice cream scoop, plastic cooking spoons.

Hello KJG2606222 - Congratulations on your new dishwasher purchase! We appreciate the trust you've placed in us and our products and we are sure you will enjoy great performance from your dishwasher for many years to come. We are glad you like the 3rd rack. Thanks for making GE Appliances a part of your home!
We purchased this built-in to replace a portable GE dishwasher (which had lasted 20+ years) during a recent kitchen renovation. It is powerful and yet amazingly quiet while it is running. I love the third rack on top for silverware. It makes it easier to unload and sort the utensils after the cycle has finished. This model also has bottle jets which can be turned on or off, depending on need. While I love those jets for power washing bottles, cans, and yogurt containers for recycling, they do not accommodate larger re-usable water bottles - there is not enough clearance with the third rack above. I was amazed the first few times I ran a load of dishes at how sparkling clean everything came out, and realize my old portable probably should have been replaced a long time ago. I love the results of a clean load of dishes. The only disadvantage is the buttons on the front; contact with them, can set off the alarm that the DW is not closed, but was an attempted start. Easy enough to fix by simply holding in the Start button for 3 seconds, but we did not realize how sensitive those buttons would be. Lots of run options, including sanitize and boost wash temp heat and boost dry (REALLY HOT! - use with caution and no plastic lids in bottom rack when you do...). Overall, I am immensely satisfied with this purchase, and hope that is lasts as long as my last GE dishwasher did.
We love the slate finish and are fans of GE appliances. However, this dishwasher doesn't seem to dry very well. Although it dried our dishes, the top, sides, and bottom of the appliance were soaking wet. It makes us concerned that it will begin getting a mildew smell. If this improves after running it a few more times, I will come back and give it a higher ranking.
