GE Model GSD2000
We purchased this dishwasher in 2006 from the Home Depot. It was a mid-grade model at the time at an economical price-tag. We purchased it in black to match the kitchen, however it shows dirt.
Newer models are available in stainless steel which is what I would recommend for future purchases. Stainless steel tends to wear better over time.
Overall I have been moderately satisfied with the quality of this dishwasher. On occasion the dishes will come out with a fine layer of food stuck to them. This may be attributed to the dish detergent, however it is very frustrating taking a drink from a glass and seeing flecks of food at the bottom.
For this particular model I have figured out that loose powder detergents work better than the condensed brick powders (Electrasol Tablets). I have noticed a slow decline in the efficiency of the dishwasher. I am fairly adamant about removing food residue before loading dishes however this dishwasher does not seem to handle chili pans AT ALL.
Every time I make chili, even if I rinse it completely clean, I end up with chili powder on all the dishes and have to wash them again. My dishwasher is only two years old but it seems that it may only last for maybe another year or two. For the price tag I had hoped to get atleast five years of service before having to replace it.
Over all I would rank this dishwasher on the same level as the other GE models that I owned in the past. For future purchases I would recommend doing some comparative shopping, as new models and new technology are cranking out better products.
