Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Runs quietly

BarBVW 7/17/2020

Easy to use. Runs quietly. Love the slate color. The buttons are extremely sensitive and turn on if I walk by and accidentally brush against them. Other than that, I am satisfied.

Well made. Very quiet.

Analog dishwasher 6/9/2020

The dishwasher is a great upgrade to our kitchen. It's very quiet. Cleans the dishes well. The only issue I have is mine. There is no real flow on how to load the dish washer. It's the same pattern across the top rack, and then the bottom. It does a great job but hard to get used to just putting the glasses in any order.

Starting

Gary W 123 5/14/2020

I am so disappointed with this dishwasher. We have had trouble since it was new in late February. We have had numerous GE dishwashers in the past and this one is terrible. The dealer is coming back tomorrow for the 4th or 5th time to try and fix it. It is almost impossible to start! You have to put it on "Delay" before it will even think about starting.

The face design for push buttons is horrible

Geegee65 5/12/2020

Although the dishwasher functions great! It's the front panel design that's horrible. The print is small and a very light gray color, which you can not see at all!!! it would be nice if the panel lite up when selecting Your wash cycles. The same with the refrigerator and gas stove we purchased. You literally have to turn on every kitchen light to read what settings you want. Gas stove knobs are same small gray print - like size 8 font! Same with refrigerator ice/water - you have to bend down directly in front of items to read it. For $4,500.00 on all appliances you would think they would design the panels with maybe lighting or at least a darker print color - like black maybe?,... my appliances is the slate color.

Love the look

pokedot21 4/24/2020

We purchased this dishwasher because it didn't have a handle and matched our other slate GE appliances. I love the look of it. The buttons when brushed up against are extremely sensitive but when you push them to start a load take a second to initiate a response. The button panel is so flat you can't feel where you are supposed to press. The dishwasher is extremely quiet which is a huge plus. I also love the jets up on top for glasses and how it keeps the silverware upright and seperated for better cleaning. The con would be the wash cycle. A 1 hour wash with the dry boost is actually 164 minutes. Seems very long. This replaced a unit that was about 15 years old so it's been wonderful having something updated.

Very quiet

DCSTV 3/11/2020

One of the nice features of this dishwasher is that it runs quietly. All we hear is a gentle swish and hum as it cleans the dishes. Four bottle jets thoroughly wash out water bottles or personal coffee thermoses if they're not too long, and there's actually a rack for chopsticks (which we use). When we had to have this unit serviced, the local tech whose company works on several other brands, said the GE units are the ones they get the least number of calls. And that says a lot about reliability.

jonna1024 1/28/2020

Had it for about a month it could be a little quieter in our personal opinion. We had a different model but it didn't come in the slate color which was extremely frustrating so we had to settle on this one. The buttons are hard to push at times but it seems to work and match everything else. Hopefully no issues.

This dishwasher has done a great job removing stuck on food. I purposly left more difficult items un-rinsed as a test. I refuse to wash all my dishes first like my mom used to... the dishes came out clean. Nice. The thing that knocked it down a star is that i have front panel controls and every time i lean on the cupboard the dishwasher starts. You have to be quick to stop.

We really like this dishwasher, it's so quiet! The "clean" indicator is very helpful & we like the fact we can fill either the top or bottom & run the machine without having a full load. We installed ourselves & it went quite smoothly. We absolutely love the slate color! Great appliance so far!

Dissapointed

SMWendler 11/8/2019

This is our 3rd GE dishwasher in 20 years. The last one was a profile. And this one seems smaller than the others. My dishes seem don't to fit. The top rack will not fit the small items on the fold down racks if there are glasses underneath. And therefore useless. The silverware holder is definitely smaller. Just seems the racks are not designed properly. all the prongs on the bottom were pointing out, I tipped them straight so dishes could be placed behind in back. There is no rinse and drain feature, If I don't fill it in a couple of days I like to give a rinse so it doesent smell.
