Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

6/30/2018

Bought the unit and decided to install myself. Found the instruction fairly easy to follow until I got to the part where the water line connection requires a 90 degree fitting that was not part of the unit. So off to the hardware store to purchase the item about $5 and completed the installation. Great it powers up Where is the operator manual? Well after going through all the accessories/instruction/box container no joy The manual is on line and had to download a copy. So the wife was happy and I took a nap

Kind of noisy. When the water is running it sound like water is leaking on the floor but its not. Maybe more sound deadening in needed. After two months it started leaking a little from the door gasket. Havent fixed that yet and I think Im on my own for that. Dont think I would pick this GE again. Doesnt dry very well either.

Great but one problem

5/26/2018

Had it two weeks installed it myself. Very quiet controls are easy to understand. The only problem is the interior color - its dark almost black. That makes it very hard to load. If I had it to do over Id buy something else. This purchase was to replace another GE one that had a white interior. It was much easier to load and unload.

Designed Beyond Expectations

4/29/2018

This dishwasher replaced another brand that failed miserably after 5 years of light usage. Having been content with the old unit until it failed I wasnt sure what to expect from this mid-priced GE. Let me just say WOW what a difference. The designing that went into this machine is incredible. The stemware racks double as chop stick holders the silverware basket can either be placed on the door or lower rack and a second convenience basket Is provided for things such as small lids spatulas and cooking utensils Both baskets even give the option of standing silverware /cooking utensils upright via slots on the lid. So far every piece of stemware has come out clean using the door position and just tossing them in- - that cant be said about my old one. The GE also washes at a much higher temperature and the dishes actually come out dry The controls are easy to understand the noise level while slightly higher than more expensive units is unobtrusive. The handle and door are solid and the 3 dimensional GE logo is a classic. This unit packs the punch giving you everything from the more expensive GE models except for the stainless steel interior and goofy bottle jets. The only con I have are the sometimes challenging tines in both racks. My average ordinary bowls dont cooperate with them and I lose space for other things having to spread the bowls out further than desired. I also wish powering on/off was an option not automatic by opening /closing the door. It gets annoying hearing the unit power up and the display light up when loading a glass or plate. I just dont close the door anymore to till its time to actually run a load.
