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.

Glass and Dishware Fit

12/13/2018

Looking for a certain color and had two company options. This one fits wine glasses and our large dinner plates. Arrived missing front right roller wheel assembly but G.E. Parts took care of this and sent them right away. It has a design issue with the cutlery basket and soap dispensing. We leave the middle of cutlery basket empty in order to dispense the soap. The dishwasher is fairly wet even on the dry cycle when cycle is well finished. We open the door for a while or dry with a cloth. Cleans well but we rinse our dishes before putting them in the washer.

dishwasher takes too long to use....

8/15/2018

we had our dishwasher installed in april 2018...we used it only 2 times....my question is why does it take at least 2hours 30 minutes to run....I would not think that is energy saver.....Is there a cycle that takes a shorter time to run?

Pleasantly surprised

7/27/2018

This is my first GE dishwasher it replaced a 13 year old other brand high end dishwasher that was a powerhouse and not under the new energy water saving requirements. I needed the color bisque to match my other appliances I always buy American made I had a small depth requirement in inches because it would be located in a corner and all that narrowed down my choices considerably. I was wary of buying a simpler model with plastic tub and the new low energy water requirements. I do a LOT of canning and needed one that could handle a big work load. But I am very happy with how well this one washes and it washes up to 4 loads a day right now. It does take longer to wash a load depending on the settings selected but I can do a simple light load in under an hour. It doesnt dry the dishes quite as well as my old one but it does a good job. It is quiet We can barely hear it 10 feet away. The one feature I miss is quick rinse. The online description of this dishwasher is accurate. This is a very nice looking dishwasher and fit perfectly with my other appliances.

Really Quiet

6/18/2018

There are a lot of features but the best is how quiet the machine is the other feature is the waste option I would say its like having a small garbage disposal within the machine. My last dishwasher mad a lot of noise so that feature is greatly appreciated. There are more than enough options and it cleans the dishes just fine. I do like the utensil holder. Each fork spoon or knife has its individual slot so they are washed more thoroughly and do not stick together when drying. The bisque color matches my other applicance perfectly.

Worse ever

5/31/2018

I was given this dishwasher as a replacement for another when the control board short circuited. It is a lower level dishwasher with very few settings no extra rinse which is badly needed. I have to constantly re-wash half of the dishes because it leaves behind tons of soap scum and some kind of brown sticky residue. I would never recommend this product to anyone. LESS THAN 1 STAR.

Great Dishwasher

4/22/2018

My old dishwasher was from 1991. Although it still cleaned fairly well the racks were rusting out. This resulted in rust being on my glasses and plates. It was time to go The tall tub fits our reusable water bottles easily-so no more hand washing. Also it is very quiet compared to my old one. Im overjoyed with my new GE dishwasher

I had a similiar pne that was at least 15 yrs old. It quit and after researching Dishwashers in my price range they seemed similiar. This one had some good reviews and bad I should have listened to thebad. It doesnt dry or clean very well. Its not any better than my old one except for the noise and didnt botherme in the old one.

Purchased the item in January 2018 so we a still getting use to its features. So far so good. Not exactly excited with the silverware holder. When silver items are stuck in a black holder and reflecting black on the silver item it becomes difficult finding a empty hole. The silverware holders have been replaced.

GE Dishwasher

Replaced a dishwasher that was almost 20 years old that decided it wanted to retire. The new one looks so nice and runs so quietly I can almost forget that its there. I really like the sani-cycle especially when it takes a week to get a full load. Everything some out so sparkling clean.

Less than expected

1/31/2018

Bought on line and didnt realize how much smaller it was than the GE machine it was replacing after 15 years. Dont like the fact that the back set of dish holders is slanted making it suitable only for dinner plates. Also the uneven size of the silverware container is awkward and the drainage slots wider than on my older model. I load utensils handle side down and some items slip through the bottom. The length of time the extra wash features seem excessive and once I stop the machine before it finishes using heat to dry the dishes even by turning off the machine at the power source for several days it then continues through that heat cycle rather than starting the next load from the start. Ill certainly share my issues with this machine with anyone buying another dishwasher regardless of brand

This must be GEs bottom-of-the-line dishwasher since the inside seems to be all plastic-like parts. I bought it because it is the ONLY dishwasher that GE sells that comes in an almond color which matches our GE refrigerator stove and microwave.
