Enjoy cleaner dishes and utensils with this black GE dishwasher. It has a steam prewash that unsticks food particles and four bottle-wash jets to blast hard-to-reach places like tall glassware. This 24-inch GE dishwasher has Dry Boost that dries three times better than the standard cycle, leaving you with a spot-free load.
Easily clean an entire flatware collection, knives and small utensils with an additional rack across the top of the dishwasher.
Gets hard-to-dry items up to 3 times drier than standard dry cycles.
4 bottle wash jets
Clean hard-to-reach areas inside tall items with up to 4 dedicated jets integrated into the upper rack that shower water deep inside for the ultimate clean.
Wash a true half-load in either the upper or lower rack without sacrificing cycles and options available on a full wash.
Three-level 600 Series sash system
Get full wash coverage from three pressurized wash zones.
Loosens tough soils before any cycle virtually eliminating the need for soaking or pre-rinsing dishes.
Dedicated silverware jets
Get table-ready silverware thanks to powerful jets that focus on silverware baskets.
Piranha hard food disposer
To ensure consistently clean items, this stainless steel blade rotates at 3,600 RPM to pulverize food particles and helps to prevent large particles from clogging the wash arms.
Adjustable upper rack
Fitting plates up to 10.5" and other tall items in the upper rack is possible with an adjustment.
Since we are changing all of our appliances over to GE, the dishwasher was the 4th major appliance that was changed out due to the older dishwasher leaking, and in need of replacement.
Installation was straight forward after removing the older unit. Since I wasn't sure if all the hose connections would be the same, and since the stainless braided hoses should be replaced every 5 years anyways, I also purchased the installation kit for this unit from Best Buy as well. The main water line into the dishwasher needs a 1/4" flex line to garden hose style adapter.
Installation of the power line can be either via a 3 prong cord, or hardwired.
We were missing 4 of the self-tapping screws that are used to mount the bracket cabinet brackets to the dishwasher, and the screws to go into the cabinet itself. #8 x 5/8" self tapping screws work very well for replacing the missing screws.
If you have a standard 24" wide opening under the cabinet, you won't need the side seals, as these prevent the unit from being installed flush with the top of the counter top.
There is additional sound proofing material that comes with this unit, and gets installed under the kick panel in the front.
This unit also comes with the drain hose, and a garbage disposal fitting, as well as hose clamps.
In addition to being super quiet, a 24" box fan on low speed is louder than this unit when running! There are multiple settings for cleaning cycles, as well as a sanitizing cycle.
There is ample room for silverware, and large pans, and even cookie sheets!
The top rack has 3 adjustable heights, and also has water jets for super cleaning.
We are really pleased with how well this unit functions, and performs.
Overall this is a nice dishwasher with some cool features like dedicated water jets for the silverware, a third rack for cooking utensils for things like spatulas, larger silverware, small lids, etc, and bottle jets. However the inside of the dishwasher seems a little cheap. The inside of the door is plastic and not stainless steel like my last dishwasher and the dish racks have a lot of play in them when you pull them out and push them back in. They do not roll smoothly and make a lot of noise when moving them. Just seems very loose. Also the clip that matches the door closed was broken (see attached pic). It still functions but I’m afraid it’s going to break off over time and will no longer hold the door closed.
Also Best Buy, you should tell your delivery drivers/helpers to be a little more personable. I greeted them and told them where to go with the dishwasher and neither said a word back. Not even a “Hi”. They both seemed like they hated their job.
Love this dishwasher! Runs so quiet, I can have it running while working from home. I literally work right next to it. The first time we ran it, we heard the water run but not much else. We were like is it even working? After about a minute we could hear it, but barely. To test it out, we did not scrub or rinse off anything. We were so amazed! Even my casserole dish came out spotless. Love it! Two reasons I do not give it 5 stars. First is where you put your jet dry. The hole to put it in, is so small, I thought surely there is a bigger hole somewhere. After going through the owners manual, and researching online, there was nothing that explained the best way to add the jet dry to the tiny hole. Maybe it is operator error, but I can not figure out a good way to add the jet dry without wasting some, because the hole is so small. Also, the rubber seal at the door doesn't appear to be great design. We are concerned that if we keep rolling the bottom rack over it, that over time it will damage that seal. So, when I pull out the rack, I always try and remember to lift it up and over that seal. Other than that, very happy with my Christmas present from the hubs! Looks beautiful in the kitchen too
I've been very happy with this dishwasher so far. I enjoy the too rack for odd utensils. However, there is no option to run a rinse only. I don't fill it fast enough to run frequently, so a rinse feature would be nice so it doesn't smell.

Overall Very Good
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
Overall very satisfied. Previous 'Whirlpool' unit never did dry properly. Nice to not have to deal with that. When removed from packaging, the legs were all slightly bent. Straightened them with no problem. Cable on door seems a bit flimsy (string, not metal) and expect issues with that down the road.
Our existing dishwasher finally kicked the bucket. We chose this model due to price and features including the top drawer for silverware. Installation was a breeze and have not looked back since. Thanks!
A:AnswerHi Terrifrmtx - Thanks for considering GE Model GDF630PSMSS! This model has Automatic HotStart and will preheat the water. Water coming into the dishwasher may be as low as 95 degrees F and this feature will help raise the temperature to the required 120 degrees F. It actually heats the tub, spray arms, dishes, (prior to the main wash cycle) allowing proper cleaning. Once selected, approximately 1-1/2 gallons of water enters the tub, circulates in the tub for 5 minutes and then drains. This helps to purge cold water that may be in the line. Then another 1-1/2 gallons of water enters the tub and circulates for approximately 15 minutes and then drains. The heating element is on during this period, heating up the water and the tub. After this option is run, the dishwasher will automatically go into the cycle that has been selected. Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com. Sue
A:AnswerDon't know if it's an improved model - but I have GDF630PMMES for a little over a month. I absolutely love this dishwasher. It is so quiet we have to really get close to see if it's actually running. I've not had a single problem with this model.
