This chic model from GE is packed full of innovative features. The contour door, with its sculptured handle and hidden Controls, lends a beautiful designer appearance.

Product Reviews
Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Worst ever! We have this dishwasher, but didn't order it through this company. Feeling that it was top of the line and we have all GE Profile series appliances, we ordered it. It truly is the worst dishwasher we've ever owned. Although I do like the automatic soap dispenser, that is about the only thing that I like about it. Oh, and it IS very very quiet. However, the rack system on the bottom doesn't work - I place the plates in the tines, and the minute I push the rack back in, the plates go tumbling into a big heap. It also does NOT get the dishes clean - and I am always certain to run the hot water in my sink before I turn the unit on. It also doesn't dry the dishes. It does better on drying with a rinse aid, but my old Kenmore didn't require a rinse aid and got the dishes dry everytime. I would not recommend purchasing this product - and we are now replacing ours with something else. Probably a KitchenAid. 5/30/08
Rated 4 out of 5 by Talk about quite We have two young children and run a load of dishes at least once a day. We love the dishwasher. I was somewhat apprehensive about changing from my Kitchen Aid Whisper Quiet to a GE, but my husband assured me the GE would be quiet as well. Now that we finally have it installed and I have started using it, I love it. I often have to check to make sure it is actually running. The knock on this unit was its mediocre cleaning. I have found that it cleans very well, every bit as good as my Kitchen Aid. I love the automatic liquid detergent dispenser, very handy. The one criticism that I have at this point is that there are no internal clips to hold onto lids. I would also like to have a readout on the face of the dishwasher as opposed to the top of the door. Although this is not a big deal. If I am standing back in the kitchen I can see the readout and time left display pretty well. 5/14/08
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quieter than a mouse We wanted the quietest dishwasher out there and I think we got it. I love the pre-fill liquid detergent dispenser. Fill it up, lasts a month. Great cutlery and knife holders, stemware rack and bowl racks. I am happy with this purchase. 2/21/08
