    Dishwasher performance
    by: Kedre James

    This is absolutely the worst dishwasher I have ever owned. It does NOT get dishes clean. Often times my dishes will come out dirtier than when they went in. This dishwasher has ruined several of my glasses by leaving them either cloudy or yellowed or both. I DO NOT reccomend this appliance. I had service come out only to say "it is doing what it is designed to do". I thought I could trust the brand name GE....I guess not.
