GE Tall Tub Dishwasher/Model#: GLD4600NWW

This washer came with the house we bought 3 years ago. It is not GE’s base model, but it’s close. We did not upgrade and it is just the standard dishwasher with no extra frills. In the 3 years we have used it, we have only had one problem. It was still under full warrantee so GE came and fixed it for free.

A sensor went out on the control panel and the repair man said that it happened all the time after a year and a half or so. We haven’t had any trouble since.

It washes very well. It does leave food particles on the dishes occasionally though. In addition, the holes the water shoots out of get easily clogged with food. It only has basic cycles as well—normal, pots and pans, glassware and sanitize. The sanitize cycle only works if the water is hot enough which means the thermostat on your hot water heater needs to be turned up enough. It explains this in the manual and tells you what temperature water it needs. I used the cycle without adjusting the water and the cycle didn’t complete.

This machine is much better than a basic model or an apartment style dishwasher, but it is not the best out there. It gets the job done. On the plus side as well, it is very quiet. The loudest noise I have ever heard coming from it was just a low hum.

I would recommend this washer to someone who wants an adequate dishwasher for a reasonable price.

-lots of space for dishes
-very easy to install

-hard to clean filter.
-occasional bad clean job

My fiance and I bought a house about 2 years ago that had a dishwasher in it. However, that dishwasher had a broken door and needed to held shut. We decided to get a new dishwasher and have been very impressed with this one.

I'm a fairly handy guy and was able to install it relatively easily. It took me about 2 hours to get the old one out and the new one in.

Overall, I haven't had any problems with it at all. The filter is difficult to clean as it's in an odd place. But you don't have to clean it that often, so it doesn't come up much.

Also, about every 20 loads or so we find that it doesn't clean a load in just one wash. When we put it through the second time, it gets clean though. Again, not a huge deal in our mind.

Overall, I really like this dishwasher. It's got plenty of space and mechanically runs great. It's also not very loud. I've had some in the past that if you ran during the day, you'd need to turn the TV up. This one is fairly quiet. It comes with nice accessories for stemware and the rack folds down in certain spots for larger items.

I would easily buy this model again if I ever needed another dishwasher. We've owned it for two years and haven't had a single mechanical problem with it. We bought the extended warranty when we bought it, but haven't even come close to using it.
