We, my husband and I, are currently renting our house. We moved in just over two years ago. With the house came all the major appliances including the dishwasher. It is a GE Nautilus model. I’m not sure how old it is.
The capacity is fairly small but for the majority it does a decent job of cleaning the dishes. I originally thought it was not working well until I tried different dishwasher detergents. Now I’ve found one that works very well most of the time. One of the problems I do have with it, though, is occasionally certain items get food material inside them.
For instance, I have a pair of water bottles that notoriously do not get clean in the dishwasher. When I pull them out there is almost always little bits of debris inside even though they remained upside down on the top rack. Occasionally this happens to other glasses and other items on the top rack and I have been able to identify the cause and, therefore, the solution to the problem.
It also doesn’t appear to have a very good seal around it. We have been battling an ant problem not for several months and even when we keep the kitchen counters free of dirt dishes, we still end up finding the ants marching into the dishwasher scrounging leftovers off those in the dishwasher.
It offers features such as a heated wash, rinse only, plate warmer and pots and pans wash as opposed to normal wash settings. The only feature I wish it had in addition to those is a sanitize option. I have a 7 month old daughter and could really use that.
Overall, it is a decent machine but nothing special.
