Well where do I begin, takes time deciding on any new appliance and the one I had lasted 12 years of faithful service until recent. It was a Whirlpool Gold with every feature you can think of, more then any new one out there today. Times change.
After deciding on this GE Dishwasher, price was considered and the brand name also. And had to like the looks of the dishwasher. There is always negatives no matter what review you read, so I can sort of read between the lines of the ones fussy as heck, or that have a problem. And for this price range what do some of you expect, it is roomy inside, has a steam feature that some more high price do not have, has the upper and lower that a lot of other models do not offer. And the bottle jets if you use that feature. Plastic or the stainless steel. All I can say is that this model cleans so good, the glasses sparkle and the dishes sani clean and dry.
And the most quiet dishwasher I have ever had, with no noise what so ever, that is so nice. And a lot of people complain about a rinse feature, I have had this on other models, did not make those models any better then this one, the dishes still get rinse and dry.
With all that said, for the most part I am happy, but when I order new new means exactly that. No scratches of any kind, no dents, not pot marks in the appliance. When you go to open up the dishwasher the very top part where it is black, has scratches on it, and some marks I do not know what they are, could not tell until the dishwasher was in, and we took off the protective shield. That really upset me off, because I was so happy to get my new dishwasher, and then totally bummed out.
Quality is not what it use to be, as far as weight of this item, I had an old GE that was sturdy.
You do have to maneuver the dishes in this dishwasher, to fit properly, other then these issues I am happy, with the cleaning performance. But after spending all day my husband putting this dishwasher in, I am not happy with the top part of this dishwasher, if I wanted as is I would have bought as is dishwasher. For this price that I paid, there should be no scratches on it what so ever new means new, do Companies not understand this theory. This is the first purchase made at HD and buying a GE appliance, that I am not happy about. Delivery men were great price was great, dishwasher cleans better then expected. But with the scratch top part, GE really ought to give me a discount, because new means new and not as is PERIOD.
Never had a problem buying appliances at any other local store ever with these cosmetic issues and if I did, the stores offered a replacement or a discount on the item, which I took the discount.
Do your homework as to where you buy an appliance, buying is the easy part, GOOD CUSOMTER SERVICE they say is almost non existent today. And that is sad.
Good Customer Service, is that they listen to the reviews, and why a customer is unhappy I am very upset about the top of the dishwasher if I want an appliance with scratches, I will buy as is. My 12 year old whirlpool gold, looked brand spanking new still, because of how I treat my belongings.
Besides the cosmetic issues, this dishwasher in this price range has a lot of features, cleans really good glasses shine, have the upper and lower option, the steam clean and boost, are really great, and the bottle jets if used are nifty. Am happy except for the very top part, thank goodness it is on the top.
Lots of Features, Looks Great, Stylish, Nice Design
