15 Place Setting 3 Wash Cycles Energy Star Qualified

The GLD4404RBB is another offering from the GE dishwasher line that comes packed with an array of features which are energy efficient. Enjoy keeping your dishes clean with such features as the five stage filtration system and Steam PreWash.

Interior Features
  • Ensure that dishes come out dry and clean with the five stage filtration system which subjects the water to five stages of filtration in order to make sure that only clean water touches your clean dishes. The plates and dishes are dried using the convection drying system with the help of the Calrod heater. Plates also come out sanitized with the SaniWash cycle which removes up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria.
  • Other convenience features include the Rinse Aid dispenser and the Silverware spray jets which utilizes three spray arms to ensure that all surfaces are covered.
  • The unit sports an impressive racking system that is coated with nylon. The platinum silver nylon coating prevents scratches on the glassware and china. The racks are adjustable and can be folded down so you can make room for larger items. Also included in the racking system is the small items basket and two plastic utility shelving for more shelving options.
  • Operation is quiet. The unit hums in the background with the help of the Quiet Package which includes QuietPower57 sound package. This reduces the sound level to just 57dBA. Other components include the sealed toe kick and the QuietPower motor.

    Exterior Features

  • The control panel is located up front. It houses the control buttons and knobs used for setting the child lock feature, delay start and othe features. The GLD4404RBB also comes with a black, smooth long door design that is simple yet elegant. The smooth texture of the door makes it easy to clean up with just one wipe.
  • There are levelling legs for adjusting the height of the unit.

  • The classic black color is perfect for any kitchen.
  • The unit is compact but it can accomodate up to 15 place settings.
  • The unit is quiet even if you are running the hard food disposer.
  • The GLD4404RBB offers a lot of savings in power and water with its Energy Efficient features.


  • There is no electronic display and the control panel markings tend to be too small for easy reading.
  • The unit lacks several basic features you would normally find in other units such as a stainless steel interior, Quick Wash, China/Crystal and Heavy duty settings. The lack of a stainless steel interior could also be the reason why the tub is not as durable as other models.
  • Drains tend to clog often, as does the hard food disposer. Frequent clean-ups are a must.
  • The washing ability is often problematic. Plates come out still coated in detergent residue.
