Mixed Feelings - Some Good, Some Meh, Some Disappointments

By  from Madison, WI  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 2
Ease of Use: 3
Meet Expectations: 3
Bang for Your Buck: 2

This is a review of GE Profile PDF820SGJBB automatic dishwasher. The Good: Delivery was much faster than expected, with the delivery a week ahead of forecast. No shipping damage and the delivery was within the promised 4 hour window with a 24 hour advance phone call. Internet searches for discounts and incentives were not fruitful. Made a purchased based on a discount retailer`s past performance and small discount. I guess there isn`t a lot of deep discounting available for mid-tier dishwashers, this model included. I don`t have a sound pressure meter, so I can`t say whether the advertised 45dB is achieved. However, the new dishwasher is considerably quieter than the one it replaced. It is so quiet you must look at the control panel display to know if it is on. The `Meh`: We had hoped for clean-every-time washing, but find that there continue to be one or two dishes that seem to come out dirty. This was true of our old dishwasher as well. I am not sure that automation has an answer for what is inherently a manual task. Sigh. The specifications indicates a vented fan to speed drying. I found the vent openings and can`t say if there really is a fan (it is very quiet if there is) but even after an overnight washing the dishwasher has some drops of water on some surfaces inside. If the heated drying setting is used, the dishes came out dry after the extended cycle. So that works. But we don`t like the idea of using more electricity if we can avoid a heated drying cycle. If I leave clean dishes in a drainer on the counter overnight they always air dry. I would like my automatic dishwasher to have the same result. Disappointments: Installation includes a trim package which apparently fills potential gaps on the sides and top if the under-counter opening is slightly larger than specification. Our opening is exactly the specified required size, and I followed the installation instructions which includes the trim. I assumed the trim (plastic weather stripping) was a good idea for sound proofing, etc., I attempted to install it. The instructions were not clear because the trim installation (step 11) and illustration is followed by mounting bracket installation (step 12) without pictured trim. In fact, there is no way to do both. I struggled with this and realized I had to abandon the trim to get the dishwasher to slide into the under-counter opening. I wasted over an hour trying to attach both the trim and the mounting brackets. Finally realizing I could only choose one or the other (and really, you MUST use the mounting brackets). What the GE installer expects is a complete mystery! Like I said, our opening is correctly sized, so we did not NEED "trim" to fill a gap to make a finished built-in look. I don`t know what you would do if you needed both the trim strips and the mounting brackets! I even tried calling the 800.GE.CARES but that phone number does not include installation help. One of the features advertised is "Floor Protection: Floor Protect" which apparently consists of nothing more than a galvanized metal pan under the dishwasher with a capacity of a couple tablespoons of water. The installation guide says "on some models" there is an electronic water sensor to attach to the pan which is designed to shut off the dishwasher in case of leak. Our model apparently has no such electronic sensor although the description led us to believe we would be getting it. We have high-gloss black kitchen appliances and ordered the black model. Our dishwasher`s metal front has a painting defect. It looks like a speck or bubble during painting. We are not going to go through a hassle of a return over this, but it is disappointing. There are apparently imperfections in the alloy used within the stainless steel interior because some rust (red discoloration) is now visible on a couple of patches after only a few wash cycles. I intend to monitor this closely and will make a decision to seek warranty replacement if it gets worse within the 1 year we have. We provided both a land-line and mobile phone number in the Appliances Connection profile. These numbers were passed along to the delivery company. The delivery company only called the land line and did not leave messages when the land line was not picked up. They should leave messages or try the mobile. Luckily I happened to be home on their 2nd call to the land line and picked up.

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Installation Difficulties, Stainless Steel Interior Rust, No Overnight Air Drying

Very Quiet

By  from Miami, FL, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

I picked this dishwasher because of other reviews and because of its very good rating on noise of operation. This is because I have an open kitchen with the living room area very close. Not only does this dishwasher clean extremely well, most of the time I cannot tell that it is on because it is so quiet. The only comment I have which could be construed as a negative, is that the wash cycle seems to take a long time.

This is a quiet unit with a lot of room for dishes. The door is really light weight, trays roll very well. Really happy with this unit, it was a great upgrade over a competitors unit we replaced.

Good dishwasher

By  from West Chester, PA, United States  Verified Owner
Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ ★★★★★ 4

Recommended Product:

Purchased this dishwasher a few months ago and just love how it washes the dishes. Not so happy about the amount of cycle time ( some cycles are at long as four hours) or the drying cycle. I almost always find that things washed on the top rack will still be wet at the end of the cycle and that I will have to reach for a dish cloth to dry them before put them away. While this is an inconvenience, I am happy that they at least come out clean.
