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.
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.

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!
It’s certainly true that appliances don’t last as long as they did 30 years ago! This replaced a DW from 2016. This dishwasher does have the added feature of a 3rd rack — which is located at the very top. The sanitizing and boost and dry cycle are also great to use. So far, all is holding up well. The spinning, water sprayer arm can pop off, but is easy to put back in place.
Good overall performance. Very reasonable noise level.
GE should include the 120 VAC cable with the device and should not depend on the customer to supply that. Also the 3/4 to 3/8 inlet water adapter should be included to make our life a bit easier.
The 3rd tray is definitely a plus.
The 2 supplied black plastic covers to be used on the edges ( similar to door brushes ) are nice additions which provide professional finish.
A review after a few weeks of ownership for anyone considering this model.
Really easy! Ordered online on Wednesday and had it that Saturday. BB dropped off new and hauled away old in under 5 minutes. Masked and gloved; No muss or fuss. Part of the reason I went with this, was the potential for a fast turn around. And they did not disappoint.
Not difficult, but took half a day for me. I chalk that up to this being my 1st dishwasher replacement. No special tools required. I got by just fine w/ screwdriver, ratchet, wire cutter, wrench and level. I am glad I got their install kit. I didn't have the wire nuts, and clamps. Replacing the feed line wasn't a bad idea either. It saved me a trip to the box store in the era of COVID. Annoying, that manufacturers go cheap on these small connector items.
It's Plastic Fantastic on the inside, but not in a completely cheap or bad way. It seems like a solid build. I would call it a working man's special: more practical than flashy. It won't impress your image conscious in-laws, but it will get the job done (it's a dishwasher for God's sake.. not a particle accelerator).
3rd rack is nice and makes up for no door based cutlery basket and that gives you some flexibility. I was glad to see this feature on a medium range unit. Trays seem plenty deep and big enough.
Nice wash options and I do like front facing controls that show you remaining time and your chosen wash options.
Specs say operation is louder than other new units, but I really didn't find it that bad. I kinda like the white noise of it in the background after your wash up and are relaxing.
These are really minor nit picks, given the good price, so take them with a grain of salt.
I don't like the door clasp. It's just a cheap plastic wedge you force snap the door too. I expect that to wear down quick. The LEDs are super bright and they ping annoyingly when you press them. Would of been nice to have some option to tone the button interface down.
There was an initial chemical smell but it's gone now after a few empty washes alternating White Vinegar and Baking soda.
Dishes do tend to come out a little wet and the run time can be longer (I think this is true of all the new units, to make them meet energy requirements?) but if I run it with longer & hotter options it doesn't seem to be an issue.
I probably ended up going a little cheaper than I had meant too. If I had to do it again, I would try to upgrade to a metal tub. But I am really not that unhappy at this price point. I am not going to return it now. If I get 3-5 years of problem free use out of it, I will call it a a fair trade off. If I get more than that, then I call it a good deal. If I replace it in a few years, then the lessons learned here on how to install one will help me out.
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.
A:AnswerHi - Thanks for choosing GE Model GDF630PSMSS! We certainly appreciate your loyalty. The dishwasher can be hard-wired or installed with a power cord kit (sold separately). A drain hose is included. We suggest viewing the Installation Guide at the following link (See page 2) : https://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=31-4000103.pdf - Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com. Enjoy! Sue
We thank you for contacting us. If all of your other appliances are Slate, then the dishwasher, also being in Slate, will compliment the rest of your appliances well. Light can play a large role in how finishes are perceived. If you are worried about the Slate finish's look, we would recommend contacting a local dealer so you are able to see the finish in person. But do know that we sell full suites of appliances with finishes that will allow them to compliment one another for a complete look in your home. We hope that this helped to clear things up. Thank you very much for your question.
A:AnswerHi JoJo - We have great news! Model:GDF630PGMBB (Black) has a gloss finish. All GE dishwashers in black (model numbers ending in BB) have a gloss finish. Black Slate appliances (model numbers ending in DS) have a matte finish. Thanks for your loyalty! Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com - Sue
