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.

Good so far

cruisn 9/4/2020

Was an easy install and cleans dishes good. Only issue so far is sometimes when you hit the start button all lights go out and then on and it runs. After the wash cycle is done the light saying it done doesn't come on. Other times it works fine and tells you when its done and stays lit till you open to empty the dishwasher

Tam0928 8/27/2020

It is easy to work and quiet. I do not care for the plastic silverware holder though because it is very thin. The bottom tray as well has an odd design the way the rows are..the slats are oddly shaped and plates do not fit in like I am used to as well as too much spacing that feels waisted.

Dragonfly17 8/16/2020

This dishwasher cleans like no other I have owned before. Rarely do I have to dry even plastics when I remove them from this machine. Dishes feel clean and sanitized. This wasn't my first choice when I went to the appliance store however is was in stock, so that is why I purchased it. Beyond Happy with this product.

Gamtnmike 8/12/2020

We replaced our dishwasher of 12 years and we're a little nervous about what kind to buy. We liked the specs on this washer and purchased it with high hopes. After about a month I can easily recommend this dishwasher and we are very happy with it's performance. It's quiet and easy to use. We love the auto sensing cycle and the drying function is far superior to our old washer. Other than lacking a rinse and hold cycle it is perfect for our family.

Needs work

RayM57nAVL 8/12/2020

The 1-hour cycle shows 40+ minutes when you start the cycle. Have not timed it to see how long it actually is. It's always wet inside even after using the dry option. Did not try Dry Boost. I wish it had a rinse only cycle and a handle-to-open latch, you just have to pull it open. Once you open the door the clean light goes off, old dishwasher clean light went out when you re-shut the door. Cleans good, no issues there and it's quiet. I don't understand why it doesn't come with a power cord.

Broken when we got it home

TracyW2020 8/4/2020

This looked like a great dishwasher and we were excited to get it home. However, when trying to install it, we realized that the threads on the plastic water valve were fouled. We reached out to GE to request replacement of the part and were told we would be contacted by a repairman to schedule a time for him to install it. We reiterated that we were happy to do it ourselves if we could get the part but no go. We went nearly a week with no call so we called back and got their parts people, who informed us the part was on back order. Called again a few days later and never got a service call. We ended up returning the washer and buying a different brand. Our original call was a month ago and we still have never received a call from their repairman. Very disappointed.

So Quiet

nana di 8/2/2020

Not only is our appliance attractive and looks nice, it does as promises and the dishes are clean and sanitized. I've never had a dishwasher that is so quiet, the first few times I used it I needed to confirm that it was running. I appreciate greatly the "read out" on the appliance so that I now the time frame of dishwashing and the "clean" indicator. I don't have the need to run the dishwasher everyday and I will admit I, in the past, needed to do an extra check of the items in the washer to see if I had run the cycle yet.

Absolute disaster

JonH85 7/31/2020

Producers arrived on 7/16. Installed and didn't work. Took a 11 days to send out a technician and find out the door sensor was faulty. Technician relaxed the door and made sure everything was running properly before he took left. Halfway through the cycle it starts leaking from the tub seal. Another 7 days to get a technician back out to look at it.

Fairly good (for this generation of dishwashers)

JDC217 7/21/2020

Short version: This is a decent unit for this generation of dishwashers. You need to be especially careful with the leveling feet during installation (read on to learn from my mistake). The bottom rack is a little funny but once you learn to work with it, it can actually be pretty helpful. Also, understand that modern dishwashers use less water, less energy, and more time. The countdown timer is a great feature to help you plan around long cycles. There is a one hour cycle, but the water temperature does not increase to compensate for that--it's actually lower, according to the manual. Things generally won't get as dry as in older dishwashers. All in all, it's a good value, but you need to be aware of these things. Looking at reviews of higher end models, I found that cycle time and drying performance don't really get better at higher price points, so you have to accept that. That said, we had a long hunt for a new dishwasher, so if you're in our shoes, read on and learn from our experience. Long version: We had a long hunt for a new dishwasher, so if you're in our shoes, read on and learn from our experience. We were replacing a competitor's machine that had nice features and lasted ten years. While this machine doesn't quite have all the features we were looking for, it's good enough so far and after weeks without a dishwasher, we're going to thank God and be happy with what we have. I thought a competitor's machine at the same price point was better built; however, it would not power on, so we returned it. Providentially, --one-- of these happened to be available in black about an hour away in a different state. Competitor had only stainless steel and my wife preferred black to match the rest of the appliances (see note).* A few things to note: Appearance: Black is good (again, see note). The scoop handle is good if you have small kids who like to climb :) Features: The *countdown timer* is perhaps the best feature! We loved it on our old model, and it is increasingly rare on new models! A timer is very helpful for planning. It is accurate and tells you exactly how long each cycle is. Very helpful. The AutoSense cycle can shave a few minutes off the projected time, but otherwise it is quite accurate. The *plastic tub* is good. It seems that all stainless steel tubs have insulation panels made of an emulsion of latex and bitumen bonded to the outside of the tub. We have a known latex allergy in the family, so that broke the deal. The *cutlery basket* is small, but you can fit many pieces using the covers with holes provided that your utensils fit. Our fork handles are a bit wide, but they can be pushed through. The *third rack* is an option, but so far we have found that we don't need it. It also doesn't look terribly deep. The *lower rack* has oddly spaced tines on the back row which are good for plates but make bowls and smaller things awkward. The *sanitize feature* is good to have, but there's a caveat: it applies both steam at the beginning and a sanitizing hot rinse at the end. Before purchasing, I thought that Steam and Sanitize were separate options. Had I known they were combined, I might have made a different decision. I would prefer to save time and energy by just getting the sanitizing rinse at the end. If I want things sanitized, I'm going to put them in pretty clean. A sanitize cycle takes a long time, and I'm not going to risk things coming out dirty. The functions should be separated. I can see situations where you might want steam without sanitizing (soiled cookware, for instance, since it's going to sit for a while and then be heated), and most of the time I want sanitizing without steam on the front end. Performance: Others have said that it doesn't clean well. I can't speak to this because we scrape and rinse before washing for a few reasons. (1) Any cycle longer than the one-hour cycle (which has a lower wash temperature) takes a long time to run, and I don't have time to take chances. (2) I don't want to have stuff hanging out in the filter between filter cleanings, and I don't want to clean the filter every day. (3) I don't expect water to scrub like a brush; all I expect of a dishwasher is to deliver microscopic cleanliness through detergent and hot water--sanitized if I want it. I'm not shooting dishwasher commercials in my kitchen. That said, things come out pretty dry on the sanitize cycle without adding a dry cycle. On the the AutoSense cycle, the dry cycle adds about 64 minutes, and things come out pretty dry. The DryBoost adds more time. Quality: *Leveling feet*: One thing you must know before installation is that the wooden frame in the packing crate is attached to the frame of the dishwasher by the *leveling feet.* The instructions say to lay the machine on its back to remove the feet and frame. Be careful, because the leveling feet will be bearing the weight of the machine. You need to transfer the weight to something else so that the leveling feet are relieved. I accidentally re-threaded the rear leveling feet at an angle because the steel frame is so thin. It works and it's level, but the rear feet contact the floor at a slight angle, so it's not ideal. Also, some other things made installation quite difficult. Compared to the competitor's unit that ended up not working, a few steps made installation difficult. The mounting brackets were particularly hard to attach because they need a lot of force to thread them through. You should use a nut driver, but I ended up using a small wrench around a drill's nut driver attachment, and it worked. Some reviewers said that some units came with incorrect door seals installed, causing water to leak. We don't appear to have this problem, although the lower rack rolls in and out over the lower door seal, which may create accelerated wear over time. I've read a lot of dishwasher reviews this summer, and I'm not sure if others said it was loud. Just to be clear, I did not install the toe kick because I want to see leaks immediately. It's very quiet even without the toe kick. *(If you have kids, you want black. I prefer white because it feels to me like home. I don't know why stainless steel is the current fashion, but it strikes me unfinished, industrial, and cheap--not like home, and not very pleasant. Regardless, both white and stainless steel will show marks and nicks that you need not worry about. Black will hide them. You do not want black stainless steel, which is just an easily scratched black film over stainless.)

Love this dishwasher

Have never been a fan of GE products but Lowe's salesman said this was a really nice one. So glad we listened. This dishwasher is super quiet and cleans great. Super happy with our purchase.

I HATE this dishwasher.

JuneCFL 7/20/2020

This is the worst dishwasher I have ever used. Silverware does not come clean, the dishes are left soaking wet, the top wash arm dislocates on a regular basis (it is attached to the top rack) and it takes FOREVER to run a regular cycle. The only good thing about it is that it is super quiet. You can't even tell it's running most of the time.
