General Electric Dishwasher model # GLD2800TWW

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

Although I have had times in my life where I have had to do without, I can honestly say I prefer to have a dishwasher in my home. Since living in the US, I have always had General Electric dishwashers and currently own model # GLD2800TWW. For the modest MSRP of $329, this product is pretty good value for money.

My model is a tall tub built-in dishwasher with a white front panel that matches my kitchen. It features a four level towerless wash system with two wash arms and self-cleaning five-stage filtration. This sounds impressive, but I still have occasions when I have to re-wash glasses because they have a residue inside or bits of food sitting in a pool on top. This aside, the dishes do get a good clean, especially heavy soiled pans for which there is a heavy soiled setting.

The interior capacity of the dishwasher is spacious and the white titanium racks provide enough room for 12 place settings of tableware or a variety of different dishes with room for approximately 20 glasses on the top rack. Silverware can be stacked separately in a deluxe multi-compartment basket.

Once the dishwasher is loaded and the detergent and rinsaid are added, the machine is easily closed and started with the push of a button. There is a separate button to add heat for drying at the end of the wash cycle. There is even a delayed-start option so you can set the dishwasher to come on two or four hours later. Personally, I have never used this function as I prefer to run my dishwasher while I'm home and awake. I find the audible end-of-cycle signal a little irritating too as I don't need reminding that the dishwasher needs emptying.

This model features a QuietPower motor and a Quiet water valve, but I still find I need to turn my television volume up while the dishwasher is running because I live in an open-plan house.
