Summary: I was renovating the whole kitchen, bought 2.5K+ items such as under-the-counter drawer Italian fridge, stove, exhaust, best W/D combo I could find on the market, German/Swedish fixtures etc, so I thought I would go middle of the range for the D/W, but still a respectable brand, eg (I thought) GE. Plus I thought I could use something 'american' with all those snooty europeans in the house.
Summary: This is my first dishwasher and it is a gem. The price at AJ Madison was the best around. I was so happy they had this 18" GE since I wanted a brand I could count on and a size to fit into my small galley kitchen. The dishwasher accommodates plenty of dishes, glass wear and utensils, washing and drying everything thoroughly and quietly. I've used it to clean pots too and they come out shining. I certainly recommend this GE dishwasher and the sales team at AJ Madison.
Summary: This is the first time in my life I've owned a dishwasher and I couldn't be happier with this one. The size is perfect for just the two of us. Dishes are sparkling. We live in our country kitchen and it is QUIET. The refrigerator ice maker makes more noise! We have all GE appliances and are pleased with them all, especially this latest addition.
Summary: I am vrry unhappy with this product. the interior is actuallysmaller the the unit it replaced. The racks are vastly inferior in design to the previous Frigidaire model. The openings are so large smaller plates can fall through. There was no investment in design.
Summary: I was REALLY lucky and scored one of these on CL for a fraction of the retail price. I've installed it myself in a very small kitchen that did not previously have a dishwasher. I bought the dishwasher around noon one day and among other tasks, it was installed an running that same night. My wife and I eat at home more often than not but we are both very busy with school and work so dishes piling up in the sink was starting to get really old.
Summary: Our last washer was a Kenmore (same size), it held more and was easier to load. This one is quieter,and has a separate top sprayer probably why it does a better job. Tip! Don't latch the door until you have set the desired cycle. Doing this will avoid damaging the timer and drive.
