  • Q: What is the noise decibel rating on this model?  (2 Answers)

    By Jo 

    • Best answerNot sure of exact decibel rating but unit is extremely quiet and does not clean anything. I'd consider a louder unit that gives you clean dishes.

    • Best answerHi Birdland- This is Sue at GE Appliances. We are excited to hear of your interest! Yes, the dishwasher features a lower Wash Your Way Customizable Rack. The lower rack has removable tines that are positioned in one continuous loading direction. With most racks, the tines face opposite directions, so plates and dishes face each other in the center of the rack. With the Wash Your Way rack, plates face in one continuous direction versus changing direction in the center. Align the tines to fit your best loading direction based on which side of the sink the dishwasher is located. The tines can also be completely removed to create a 100% flat loading space, perfect for large cookware items such as stock pots. Remove just one row or both rows of tines. Thanks for checking with us!

    • Best answerOh gosh. The same thing happened to us, and in fact was just on here to write a bad review for GE because of this problem. They are replacing our dishwasher for free, but we’ve had a broken dishwasher for longer than we’ve had a functioning dishwasher at this point because of the slow customer service. They deemed our dishwasher unrepairable because of this issue.

  • Q: What does it cost to install it??  (3 Answers)

    • Best answerI think Best Buy charges about $160 for installation but there is also a hook up kit for another $15 and they charge $10 or $15 to haul away your old dishwasher.

    • Best answerHi Kimmy- Yes, the dishwasher vent is located on the top left corner of the control panel. Styrofoam is placed in the vent area on the dishwasher door to prevent moisture from the steam and humidity from dripping. While all dishwashers feature a rinse aid dispenser, rinse agent is recommended but not required. Using a rinse agent is important, especially in hard water areas. A rinse agent breaks down the surface tension of water, improving water flow off the dishes. This reduces drying time as well as water spotting and streaking. Thanks for choosing GE! SUEatGEA

  • Q: When I shut the door and push the start the light will come on and blink and start beeping  (1 Answer)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerHi-this is Sue from GE Appliances. Thanks for your purchase! We are happy to help. If the Start Status indicator light flashes, this generally indicates the door was opened or the cycle was interrupted. Make sure the door is completely closed. Press the Start pad once to start the dishwasher. If the dishwasher beeps once every minute, this is a reminder that the door has been left open. It will continue until you press Start and close the door. See page 14 of the Owner's Manual for reference: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-55097-2.pdf- If the door is hitting the cabinet, it will not close properly. The dishwasher must be aligned in the cabinet so it does not interfere with the closing of the door. Make sure the dishwasher is leveled. Make sure the upper rack is in the correct position. The rack is adjustable up or down 2" but should not be raised or lowered on one side only. If the rack is not level, it will not push in all the way. This prevents the door from closing all the way. For further assistance, we encourage you to contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 for assistance or conveniently schedule an appointment online: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/service/- Thanks for checking with us!
