Summary: I needed to replace my dishwasher and noise was a main consideration for the new one. This dishwasher is nice and quiet, well designed (it holds a lot more than my previous one), and overall a great value for the money. I wish it had a "no heat dry" option, though. Also, even with the heat dry option things stay pretty wet. I have to open the door for a few minutes before unloading.
Summary: Despite Best Buy's claim that the machine had been tested at the warehouse, it didn't work once installed. The problem is a faulty latch that doesn't allow the door to quite connect with the main part of machine. The repairman (who has made two trips out to fix this, with no luck), said that they've had MANY complaints about this model. Apparently, it's a new latch design for G.E., and sadly for us, it doesn't work.
Pros: It works if you re-apply duct tape to the latch once a week
Cons: It doesn't work without the duct tape, and good luck returning it
Summary: We bought this to replace a 6 year old dish washer that was put in when we bought the house new. This is a HUGE step up in quality of wash and noise. To me this is a very quiet unit but I do know there are some that are nearly silent. For the money this is a good product. We have ran it 4 times since it was installed Monday and the dishes have come out great.
Pros: It is quiet and washes the dishes very well.
Cons: No indicator to tell you how far along the cycle is.
Summary: After installing this new dishwasher the simple flaws started to become apparent. The latch system is flimsy and bumping into the dishwasher that was located beneath the counter-top would toggle it off/on. It beeps loudly whenever you intentionally or unintentionally bump it. Although the unit runs very quietly it does not dry dishes. Even dishes left overnight were still wet. After a short 2 months the system failed completely and has no power at all.
Pros: Good Price, Has a Warranty, Stylish Interior, Quiet
Cons: Front Latch is Weak, Does Not Dry Well, Short Lifespan
Summary: My husband thought it was odd that there was no water in the lines when he took it out of the box. Usually the manufacture test the products before they send them off so there is usually water in the lines. So he hooked it up and put water in it but when we went to start it up the light would stay on and then start blinking. So we did the troubleshooting steps and still nothing. We called customer service and they told us to call a repair man.
Summary: Bought this to replace a GE Nautilus that was included with our new house 10 years ago. Best Buy installers had it ready to go in just under an hour (thanks, guys). Dishwasher does a great job cleaning the dishes. I can't believe how quiet it is. The only time it gets close to being noisy is when it's draining the water. My only complaints are that it takes twice as long to do a load of dishes as the other machine.
Pros: Extremely quiet, looks nice, gets the job done.
Cons: Wash cycle takes twice as long as the last dishwasher
