John's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Woodland, WA: - May 10, 2016
This is the quietest and best cleaning dishwasher we have owned to date. I did my research before purchasing and of course Appliances Connection had the best price!
Mansi Shah-Patel's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Oxford, MS: - March 10, 2014
chowdary's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Plano, TX: - January 22, 2014
I like it.
Stephen's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Drexel Hill, PA: - January 15, 2014
This is my first dishwasher for my home. I haven`t had one in the almost 10 years I have owned this home. I must say, it is quiet, it looks beautiful in my kitchen and it cleans wonderfully. I do NOT rinse anything and the dishes come out sparkling clean. I haven`t been happier and what a time saver for me.
blenny's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Johnston, IA: - January 5, 2014
This dishwasher is great! It gets the dishes very clean. The run time for a normal wash is very long though not that it may matter. Probably why our dishes are clean compared to our older unit. Drying works nicely but those items with grooves or crevices where water can sit will still be wet. Still a 5 star product in my opinion. Great product!
Sarah Sunderland's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Dutch Flat, CA: - December 26, 2013
We like our dishwasher very much. It is quiet and gets the dishes very clean.
jleidy0702's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Port Orchard, WA: - November 18, 2013
Really like the option to just do one basket at a time if you want.
Houston Woods's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Fayetteville, NC: - November 16, 2013
Outstanding service for an excellent quality product.
Mark59's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Dorchester ,MA: - October 30, 2013
This G.E. is the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned, very happy I bought it.
Amanda R. 's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Waco,TX: - October 30, 2013
I just got my new dishwasher installed. It works great! Dishes are clean and it is very quiet. Very Happy!
Quiet & Clean 's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Buford,GA: - October 30, 2013
I love this dishwasher! It is the first time I have ever bought an appliance and I am completely satisfied. It is so quiet, I have never heard a dishwasher be this quiet before, it is truly amazing! Plus once the wash was done my dishes were actually dry and were sparkling. No ring marks, or food stuck on the plates either! Feeling Happy
Norma Bell's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Shreveport, LA: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher does a great job cleaning the dishes. Plenty of room for your large pots and tall glasses plus an extra tray for the silverware on top rack.The sorters on the silverware trays are a little clumbsy but really this doesn't take away from the overall performance.
Annie's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Alexandria,VA: - October 30, 2013
Great dishwasher but all the new dishwashers cycles are so loooooong. it will take you two hours to do a load of dishes if you want them dried.
Jools918's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Tulsa,OK: - October 30, 2013
It does a great job cleaning and is SUPER quiet! I am very impressed with the quality of it. I also like the filter basket.
Cara B.'s GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Brooklyn,MD: - October 30, 2013
So far, we have really enjoyed using the washer. It cleans really well, is quiet and as I stated before, the silverware containers are a special benefit to us.
Don Juan 's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Santa Fe, NM: - October 30, 2013
Dishwasher is very quiet operation, and cleans effectively. Has many options to suit the user's specific needs.
Moxie Man's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Carriere, MS : - October 30, 2013
We were very pleased with the quietness of the dishwasher.
Dykstra's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Cheyenne,WY: - October 30, 2013
I love how quiet the dishwasher is! I can hardly believe it!
Cherie's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Cherry Hill,NJ : - October 30, 2013
I am very pleased with this dishwasher, because it is very quiet when it runs and all my dishes come out clean everytime. I would highly recommend this product to others.
Jeanne's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Baltimore,MD: - October 30, 2013
It washers good with the split water areas. I like the electronic controls and the different setting choices you have.
Yankee1's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Hartford,CT : - October 30, 2013
My only complaints are the wash/dry cycle on light load takes 133 minutes, which is too long! Also, I don't like the fact the silverware holders disattach so easily; they often fall away from the dish racks when I am loading the dishwasher. Otherwise, the machine is great!!
CConey 's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Brooklyn,NY: - October 30, 2013
I love how Quiet it is. I like how the flat ware is in it's own slot, they are cleaner and makes it easy to grab and put away. Well insulated, holds heat. I use this one more than I did my last one, it cleans so much better. We did have an issue with it at first, the top rack was not getting clean, called repair guy out, the O ring was collapsed and blocking water supply.
Jay 's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Vineland,NJ: - October 30, 2013
This new dishwasher is great. I bought it because I wanted one that would wash half loads. Has other great features also. So happy with this purchase.
Cat P.'s GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Miami,FL : - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher looks great, fits numerous dishes and pots and pans. It has an adjustable top rack. The dishes are spotless. Very, Very quiet. The only issue I have is that the cycles are very long.
Steve's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Tampa,FL: - October 30, 2013
Great features. Many of these features are only found on much more expensive models. Very quite. Was ready to by another model until I found this one. Very Happy! Two suggestions for those who say this model does not dry their dishes very well. 1. Make sure the water temperature is between 120-150 degrees. 2. After the dishwasher completes it's wash/dry cycle wait until the warm, moist air stops coming out of the front air vent. My dishes have dryed just fine.
Dorabelle's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Biloxi, MS: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher is very quiet and has a number of features typically found on more expensive dishwashers, including a stainless steel door, auto wash, hidden controls, and top or lower rack only wash. The dishwasher is also roomy and fits significantly more dishes than our prior dishwasher.
H B 's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Lafayette,LA: - October 30, 2013
I love this dishwasher. So much better than the one it replace. It is quiet and so easy to use. It washes so many dishes at one time. I didn't realize how bad my other dishwasher was till I purchased this one.
Kat's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Jackson, Mississippi: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher is very quiet. Really like all the features, especially wash temp. boost and sani wash. Easy to load and change tines to manage more efficent use of space.
Mr. Shop339's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Chillicothe, Ohio : - October 30, 2013
bought this on sale and I am pleased at the quality and looks of this dishwasher.
Deana's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from St. Paul, MN: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher is so quiet we almost thought we forgot to turn it on. The option of being able to just clean the top level is very nice for quick, small jobs. It is attractive and easy to clean and it does a beautiful job cleaning. We are very happy with it.
Suzie Q. 's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Manassas, VA: - October 30, 2013
This dishwasher not only looks great, but it performs great. I would never have believed that a dishwasher could be so quiet. I live in a villa with an open floor plan, and I can now watch television and run the dishwasher at the same time. I would like the dishes to be dryer at the end of the cycle. It has only been through 2 washes, so I'm hoping the adjustment I've made to my water heater will solve this minor issue
Thaddeus Lloyd's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Lithonia, GA: - October 27, 2013
Excellent buy
Deborah Hipkins's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Silver Spring, MD: - October 14, 2013
Looks beautiful and fits my tiny kitchen well. Delayed start is great and it is so quiet I can`t tell it`s on unless I`m standing right next to it.
algebra4me's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Birmingham, AL: - August 22, 2013
I could not be more pleased with this dishwasher. It is so quiet and it really cleans the dishes. I have copper bottom pots and they look like they have been scrubbed clean.
Katie Schroeder's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Urbana, IL: - May 23, 2013

This was a present for my mom and she is a pretty tough person to please. I did my homework and was able to get all of her must haves...had to be quiet, stainless steal tub, lots of room inside, stainless steal front, etc... at a reasonable price. She loves it...boy I did good!
Natalie Woods's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from Gainesville, FL: - April 10, 2013
Awesome dishwasher -- super quiet -- has two silverware baskets )yes I`m easily amused( and I love that you can just run the top or bottom rack and not the whole thing. And delivery was fast and easy and AC had the best price by a mile !!
mykey1971's GE GDT550HSDSS Review from warsaw, IN: - March 23, 2013
This is so quiet. Sometimes I will hear a noise and since it is a new noise I am not used to I will turn everything down and tell everyone to be quiet. Then I will ask my family if they hear something. My wife then says it is the dishwasher.

How a Dishwasher Works

When purchasing a dishwasher, there are a few things to keep in mind.  In order to choose the best features for you and your family, you must decide how often you will use the dishwasher and what you will be washing. Another thing to take into account is how much energy and water each model will use.  We suggest purchasing an Energy Star model.

The Soap and Detergent Association recommends a water temperature of more than 130 degrees Fahrenheit, and other sources recommend temperatures up to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it very important for a dishwasher to be able to reach high temperatures. Having a high-temperature cycle (or rinse) will ensure that you sanitize the dishwasher's contents. You can also look for dishwashers with an option called NSF sanitizing rinse. The NSF national standard establishes evaluation criteria to ensure residential dishwashers clean and sanitize dishes effectively to help prevent food borne illness. Some models have internal water heaters which raise water temperatures to 160 degrees Fahrenheit thus allowing a household to keep the water heater turned down to an energy saving 120-degrees and get the desired results from a dishwasher.

  • If you plan on using the dishwasher more then one time each day, it is recommended to purchase one with an accelerated wash cycle and a thermal heating feature to quickly dry dishes
  • If you bake or host big parties, you should choose a model with adjustable racks to fit baking sheets and party platters. Find Adjustable Rack Dishwashers Here
  • If it takes you a week to dirty enough dishes to wash one load, look for a model with the option to wash the top-rack only or the bottom-rack only
  • If you have a large family, you should select a dishwasher with a higher capacity, such as a tall tub design. You may also want to consider a dishwasher that has adjustable racks and a capacity of up to 15 place settings at a time. Find Large Capacity Dishwashers Here.

    A number of models include a built-in food disposal. Other models paired this built-in food disposal with other features such as multidirectional spray jets and rinse-and-soak cycles. These features can save you the hassle of hand-rinsing dishes, glasses and flatware before placing them into a dishwasher. If dishes are pre-rinsed using a dishwasher pre-rinse cycle, approximately one gallon of water is used compared to 25 gallons of water pre-rinsing in the sink.

    There are a few dishwashers with self-cleaning filter systems. If the dishwasher does not have this feature then you will need to manually empty the filter periodically, Failure to do so can negatively affect daily performance, as well as increase the likelihood of damage to the machine.

    Below is a list of the main features of a Dishwasher:

  • Auto-Clean/Sensor A mechanism within the machine that is intended to adjust water levels to the soil of the dishes
  • Automatic Temperature Control Heats the water as it enters the machine, insuring proper water temperature.
  • Child Lock-Out Feature Prevents children from operating the unit.
  • Controls Both mechanical and electronic controls are common.


    Dishwashers Controls

  • Cycles Three cycles (light, normal, and heavy) will handle most loads. Some models offer many more, but three should be sufficient. The most important dishwashing cycles are Light, Regular, Pots & Pans and Econo settings. The econo cycle will air dry dishes saving on heating element energy costs. Enhanced cycles such as Glass or Stemware, Rinse, Quick Wash, Pots Scrub and Sanitize Wash are features you want to have, but expect to pay more. A stainless steel dishwasher interior is a beautiful feature but will not improve washing performance - it is mainly a style option. However, a stainless steel dishwasher washing arm will not rust and will be more durable.

    Dishwasher Performance Features Performance is influenced by the number of washing levels - how and where the jets of water are distributed during the dishwashing cycle. A three tier system will provide a good washing and more levels will ensure even better coverage, but price will be influenced. A 'quiet' package is also a good feature. Dishwasher detergent and rinse agent dispensers are usually standard features and a detergent dispense system ensures the right amount to clean the load. Electronic dirt sensors are definitely nice-to-have features. A child safety lock is important if you have small children.


  • Energy Star Qualified
    Energy Star Dishwashers To see our assortment of energy star dishwashers, click here.

    The unit meets the new federal energy consumption guidelines. This feature allows you to save money and help conserve energy. ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers use at least 41 percent less energy than the federal minimum standard for energy consumption. These dishwashers use “smart” features such as effective washing action, energy-efficient motors, and sensors that determine the necessary cycle length and water temperature.
