“I never write reviews. I will from now on as the reviews on this and other sites led me to get a GE dishwasher. As a man it is not “exciting” to search for dishwashers but at least my GF was happy about my research. This dishwasher (wait for it……) washes dishes (and very well). We just got it three days ago and we have been putting dried plates (no rinsing) in their to test it and they are all sparkling. What else do you want? At Lowes I talked to people that had paid 1200 for a d/w and not been as happy. Go forth and spend the money you saved on that convection oven you’ve been dying for!”

“I have had this drawer dishwasher for about a year and am over all very satisfied with my purchase. I have had not problems with the dishwasher. There are several nit picking things that irritate me though.
Most important of all I have found that the dishwasher does an outstanding job of cleaning glasses and dishes. It has an upgraded silverware holder with dividers for each piece. This is a great asset as it prevents nesting of the silverware and generates consistently clean silverware. The washing area is cavernous and there are numerous holders and racks for various kinds of cups and glasses.
There are a mind numbing number of controls, most of which I do not use. The unit is very quiet and has a delayed start that permits automatic deferred operation up to 9 hours latter. The controls and settings is very flexible. One thing that you are  ot aware of before you buy is that the digital display is always active, even when the dishwasher is not on, when the door is latched shut. I find it highly irritating to see the setting for wash and time showing on the display all of the time even though the dishwasher has not been set to operate.
There are a number of aesthetic issues with the door. I have the stainless exterior door panel which I have learned is a tremendous pain to keep finger prints and water marks off of. A large amount of debris tends to get trapped inside the dishwasher between the base of the door and tub base. This is unsightly and requires period manual cleaning with a sponge. The detergent dispenser is extremely poorly designed for powder soap. The trays are very small and difficult to pour detergent into, especially of your box of detergent is full. It easy to pour to much into the detergent holder and fill the latch area with detergent. This makes it difficult to close the detergent holder cover. The full panel front door is nice  ut you also have to bend down further put dishes on the lower level.
In summary a very good dishwasher. It cleans for me very well. Its small quirks keep it from being rated an outstanding dishwasher.”

“We bought this dishwasher to match our new GE Profile bottom freezer fridge. GE makes very nice looking products.
The dishwasher itself may only be slightly above average in cleaning ability and sound reduction, but it’s much better than our old Frigidaire. I think some people need to double check their installation, because this model is not as loud as some people have been complaining. Drying, we have had no complaints at all. We don’t even need to use the ‘extra heat’ function.
I do like the LED countdown on the control panel that tells you how long a cycle will take and what time is left.
This model does have a plastic tub, but a stainless steel tub is available for about $100 more on the next model up, however, you don’t get the LED timer for whatever reason. We were fine with the plastic tub, the issues with odours and staining, in my opinion, are overhyped by sales staff. As well, if you ever drop a pot or dish on the stainless door liner, it dents very easily.”

“This dishwasher was purchased because it matched all of the other GE Profile appliances to go in the new kitchen. The stainless steel look was important in the decision to buy this particular model.
We installed the dishwasher ourselves, and had no problems doing so. We also had no problem with the service department of GE when an issue appeared with the hinge of the door. The dishwasher hadn’t been in our house for six months and that problem came up. The service people came and took a look at it, and had a new one ordered for us by the end of the day. It seemed as though the welding was done inaccurately, which caused the door to not close properly. The new one was installed by the service department. This one worked great for the first few months, but recently, the scroll pad that changes the wash selection has not been working properly. The selection was just changing on it’s own.
It saddens me that there have been problems with this machine. I love the options that I have! I can use the single-rack option, the anti-bacterial option, and the added heat. The options don’t end there. The delay start works great for making sure everyone gets in the shower, and then the dishwasher starts, on it’s own. Another great option there is with this dishwasher that I love is the tines on the bottom rack are adjustable. I like the fact that I can put big items down on the bottom rack and they fit! The top rack is removable as well, which is nice. This dishwasher also included different baskets to put utensils in, which helps with the amount of room needed. To top it all off, the machine is incredibly quite. The hidden buttons are bittersweet. They are nice for the design of the dishwasher, but you cannot read the status of how much time is left or what cycle it is on.
My main problem with this dishwasher is the issues that we have had with it. It hasn’t been a year since we got the first one and two problems have emerged. A minor problem that I have with this dishwasher is that the single-rack option is only used for the top-rack.”

“We replace our old Dishwasher 2 months ago and we installed this one by ourselves. The dishwasher itself is easy to install but the 90 degree coupling for thew water hose that I bought at the store was leaking all the time. I bought a new one and it was OK!
We first tried to finish our old box of powder soap and it did not wash the dish correctly. I think I did not put enough but the soap dispenser is not that big too. Then we bought liquid dishwasher soap and pour the entire bottle in the automatic dispenser. It works great because you don’t have to put soap every time. It wash the dish perfectly.
Finally, the sound upgrade that came with it was easy to install for me. If you read the manual, you have to remove the existing toe kick, THEN REMOVE THE STEEL PLATE UNDER THE DISHWASHER. It is clearly written on it. Then install the plastic toe kick and finally place back the existing one (black metal). Both (Plastic and metal) toe kick have foam to insulate the sound. The dishwasher is so quiet that if it was not for the water that get out of the drain, I would almost not hear it.
The only problem we had is that the door gasket had a small default that let the steam out of the dishwasher and wet the counter and the door. My girlfriend repaired it using her iron (for hair dressing). No joke.
I like the tray to place all the spoon, knifes and fork so that they can’t touch. We are very satisfied with this machine.
New part of reviews: We still use it and did not have any problem with the dishwasher. It his still very quiet and it wash the dishes in about 63 minutes. It will adjust the time depending on how hard the water is at you home. Its almost intelligent.”

The GE Triton GSD6100KCC features a giant tub with maximum capacity nylon racking. The GE XtraClean wash system has 3 direct-feed wash arms. The XtraClean sensor continually monitors every cycle and adjusts for water soil content, water temperature, wash cycle length and the amount of water needed to clean dishes effectively and efficiently. The control panel features a countdown display with 2, 4, or 8 hour Delay Start. This countdown signals remaining cycle time and starts the dishwasher when no one’s home or during off-peak hours when utilities are at reduced rates. QuietPower II creates an even quieter wash with the addition of mastic in the door and Thinstall insulation to deaden sound. The GE QuietPower motor and sealed toe kick reduce noise and keep residual sounds inside the dishwasher.

“I just moved into a townhouse that has this dishwasher in black.

It is extremely similar to the GE Triton XL 6600 dishwasher that my parents have. For an in depth look at the technicals behind this dishwasher design, find my review on the 6600.

I’ve done a couple loads so far in the new house and this dishwasher performs exactly how I’d expect it to since my parents have is more expensive relative.

Cycles: Pots & Pans, Anti-Bacteria, Normal, China, Rinse Only

With today’s modern appliances, and as cruddy as they all are, I would have to highly recommend GE’s tall tub dishwashers. Of course they won’t be as familiar and durable as your appliances from the late 80′s, but with the junk out there today, these’ GEs are the best.
Whirlpool’s tall tub machines contain mostly asian components now with shoddy electronics and a very weak pump.
These GEs have a very powerful pump and are still able to wash a full load of dishes in as little as 5 gallons of water.
Their wash system is quite durable and powerful.
The electronics are the weak links in all appliances today.

Again, I’d highly recommend GE’s tall tub dishwashers.
The only other domestic tall tub dishwashers I’d recommend are Maytag since they too have a very powerful pump and filter system. However some Maytag components could be flimsier than GE. But that could be subjective.”

“I’ve been in an apartment for about a year that didn’t come with a dishwasher. I was fine with it at first, but after a almost a year of hand washing I was getting pretty tired of washing the dishes. I started to loathe the entire process. My hands in the water, wet shirt/shorts, wet floor/rug, wet counter, time consuming labor involved process. All for dishes that were at best barely sanitary. I am just one person, but I bake a lot and always have a ton of dishes. As a self supporting college student, I don’t have time or energy to be scrubbing away at my dishes. I needed a machine to do it for me so I can do other things.

I looked at new dishwashers. I was shocked to see that even countertop models were 300 or more dollars. After some careful searching on Craig’s List, I found this GE dishwasher for 100 bucks. Loaded it up in a friend’s van and home it came! I can’t even begin to say how wonderful it is just to HAVE a dishwasher and how human it makes me feel, but this review is about THIS dishwasher so here goes…

I LOVE it. I’m surprised there are no other reviews written about this machine. It’s black with a brown wood laminate countertop. Like all other portables you have to roll it over to the sink and hook up the unicouple. Also, like all other portables it adds a very nice amount of counter space to the work area in the kitchen. Of course when I got it home I had dishes waiting for it. I bought some Great Value liquid dishwasher detergent (didn’t know how or if it was going to work at all with it being used, so I didn’t want to invest in expensive detergent). It DOES have a rinse aid dispenser unlike a lot of cheap dishwashers. I filled that with Jet Dry. I loaded the racks up and filled the detergent cups. Plugged in the power and hooked up the water. The machine has 6 very nice buttons (large with great tactile feel, unlike electronic touch pads… or cheap rocker switches that just let you turn the heater on or off) on the left side. They are settings for pots and pans or normal cycle, high temp wash on or off, and heated dry on or off. Then it has a dial timer on the right side. I like this better than an electronic model because you always know where it is in the cycle… how close to the end. Plus, you can advance it manually if you ever need to.

One feature this dishwasher has is a Hot Start option on the dial timer. I’ve never seen that on any other dishwasher. It will get the starting water up to 140 degrees if you need it to. I don’t use this feature because my water comes out of the faucet at about 120 degrees which is the minimum required for a dishwasher. So, I turned it on and waited. I heard it fill and then wash. The racks do tend to rattle a bit when it first fills. It is also a bit louder than most built ins that I have heard. It is supposed to have a blanket of insulation and a quitepower motor, but still a little loud.

The real miracle comes when you open the door after a cycle. I do NOT believe in rinsing ANYTHING before putting it in the dishwasher. If I wanted to do that I wouldn’t have gotten the dishwasher. The machine left EVERYTHING I put in it SPOTLESS! The glasses were most impressive. Crystal clear with not a streak or spot on them. Flatware, plates, bowls, and saucers all spotless. Frying pans and stock pots also clean as a whistle. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this dishwasher. Only time will tell if it is reliable or not, but for now, it’s GREAT the best dishwasher ever.”

“I was skeptical about buying this, for one thing, because it was so inexpensive. How well could it possibly work, I wondered, when I only paid $350 for it?

Well, the surprises were all good. It works very well, sparkling clean dishes, dries well. It uses an average amount of water (less than you’d probably use doing dishes the old fashioned way). It usually probably a little more electricity, but for someone like me who hates doing dishes, it’s worth every penny. The inside of the dishwasher is pretty big in my opinion, big enough to hold 2-3 meals worth of dishes for a small family.

It is a heavy machine, but the wheels work well and the hoses retract for easy storage. It is a portable model which is perfect for someone who doesn’t have the room or circumstances to install a permanent one. I move mine across the kitchen each time a meal is finished & hook it up. After the water cycle is finished I can move it back to it’s storage spot & plug it to the wall to finish drying time.

The hose connectors hook seamlessly up to the faucet & holds on despite the pressure. The cycles are normally about an hour including drying time, which isn’t too bad. It is a little noisy, but I’ll take a little noisiness over doing dishes any day. I think this is a really good product for the money. I also noticed Bob Villa has it listed on his page as a good buy. He’s right.
