GE Quietpower 2
We were in need of a new dishwasher as the old one was very noisy and the dishes were just as dirty when it finished as they were when it started. We did some comparison shopping and settled on the GE Quietpower 2, which we purchased at Menards. I have been very pleased with this purchase.
It has a very nice layout and I especially like that the silverware baskets are on the side rather than down the middle. This allows for better usage of the rest of the rack area. It has both and upper and lower sprayer arm which gets all the dishes on both racks clean.
I am very surprised at how quiet it is. Even though my husband forgot to put the insulation around it when he installed it, you can hardly hear it when it's running.
It does a great job of cleaning the dishes and the glassware comes out spot free. It does the same great job even when fully loaded, both top and bottom. It also washes cookware very well.
I always rinse my dishes and cookware well before loading into the dishwasher so I don't know how well it would do with unrinsed dishes.
The controls are straightforward and easy to use. I usually use the normal wash cycle with hot start. All in all, this was a great choice and I would highly recommend it. It was a mid priced dishwasher with most of the features of those that were much higher priced.
