    I've owned this washer for years, And in that time it has run about six months total. On the first run, It leaked all over the floor until i turned it over and tightened all the hose connectors. It also leaks out the front door if the water hits it at the right angle. Four months after i bought it, It started shutting down mid cycle, And i would have to open/close the door to get it to run again. Eventually this led to a complete failure of the controller board, And this board costs hundreds to replace not including labor. So i did it myself, And within a month it blew the new board as well. The interior is cheap plastic garbage that can completely fall apart at any time. The top rack is almost useless unless your washing bowls, Because of the cheap and badly designed layout. It is very heavy, And very hard to roll. So my wife could never move it to the sink. And beyond all of that, It washes dishes terrible, Regardless which type of soap you use, The machine will not do a good job. I will never purchase anything from GE ever again.

    There is no good place for bowls... Small plates barely fit on the top rack. They have to be layed in an angle this causes them to fall together and they dont get very clean, if the slots were a little taller you could put the bowls there but theres just not enough there to hold them in place. the slots on the bottom racks arent wide enough for the bowls to fit there either. I make them fit on the sides of the slots, i can put 3 or 4 plates or 1 bowl on the side. The dishes in the corner of the top rack are never clean, other than that they get pretty clean as long as they are pre-rinsed...Its not too loud and it goes through the cycles pretty quickly. The white sides dont bother me as bad as i thought they would. The cord and adapter come with it so dont buy the one they try to sell you. It comes screwed to a wooden pallet took me 10 minutes to get it off and set up on my own... it beats doing dishes for 5 people.

    Simple, easy-to-use portable dishwasher

    So far, so good! This dishwasher has been a wonderful addition to my kitchen. It glides well, hooks up in 2 seconds and gets the dishes sqeaky clean. For the price, I would have expected better construction of the racks, but they aren't so bad. They don't have tall pegs, if you will, (rather - it's just rounded "hump" dividers that don't come up but a few inches) and it's difficult to get some dishes and cups to stand upright without that support - either that, or they just get in the way. But still, I can get what I want in there and clean despite this. Perfect for light use (it's just me and one other person). If you have three or more people in your household, you may want to consider a different purchase, as the capacity of this washer isn't quite as big as you may like, and it doesn't have all the bells and whistles for making good use of the space you do have.

    DO NOT BUY THIS. I normally don't post reviews but I want to spare others the annoyance I'm experiencing with this product. I've owned it less than a month and the coating on the lower rack is already coming off. I'm assuming it's a manufacturing defect. When it was delivered, I was surprised out how cheaply made it appeared. It cleaned OK so I decided to not return it at that time. Now after a month I have two spots on the lower rack where the coating has come off and the exposed metal is starting to rust. Also, I can see where there are other divots forming where the plates rest while being washed. Based on this experience I will NEVER buy an appliance online again without first looking at it in a store.

    This is one of the best dishwashers we have ever owned. Get dishes, pots and pans clean every time. It's not as noisy as some others have complained about, it's a dishwasher for Pete sake. I don't know of any that are whisper quiet so I don't know what they are looking for. The purpose is to clean dishes and it does a phenomenal job. Easy hook up. The only complaint I have is regarding the adapter you have to put on the faucet to hook up thee hose. When not hooked up to the dishwasher, the faucet tends to spray everywhere instead of flowing normally. That is a pain. I dont know why it doesn't have a screen in the bottom of the adapter, it does at the top of it. Otherwise than that the dishwasher is great. Easy roll away and later I plan to install it under the counter.

    Overall it cleans the dishes well.. But the cons are great.. The front is the only thing black... the sides are white.. It is very loud. If you do the dishes over night your hot water has to stay running all night. There are much better dishwashers for the price.. also best buy mis-quoted me on the delivery time. the dishwasher arrived and when I went to run the "Wet Test" the water inlet .. or feed... was leaking really bad.. 5 towels to dry the floor.. I had to wait 2 weeks for GE to come fix it because best buy told me it was under factory warranty first.. It also took a month for this to be delivered. Not very happy at all. Would NOT recommend to anyone.

    The dishwasher was delivered within the time frame. It is a portable style dishwasher that is free standing and you hook it up to your kitchen sink to wash your dishes. It was advertised as black but only the front of it is black. The rest is white. Portable dishwashers are visible from every side, I wanted a black one so I don't have to clean it as much. 3 sides are white, obviously the manufacturers don't mind cleaning. I also didn't know that modern faucet spigots are not compatible with portable dishwashers. We haven't been able to hook it up yet because of this although we have tried. Best buy sales staff didn't know this. I hope we don't have to buy an ugly old style faucet in order to make this work...

    I bought this product intending to convert in a year or 2 when I remodeled my kitchen to accommodate a built in dishwasher. Plans changed and I was able to start renovation soon after delivery. Too late to return the unit. No problem it was convertible and I had purchased the kit recommended for about 30 dollars. It turned out that the kit was not the kit that GE recommended. That one was over 200 dollars. There were no leveling feet nor kick plate in the lesser kit. We are making the thing work, but on top of the installation issues the interior is small . The machine is loud., and the dishes do not dry very well. It is however better than washing by hand. Not as good as my last portable
