GE Americana Series 1

****BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT**** We manage an apartment complex and had purchased several of these units. Last month a tenant complained that it was leaking. When my repairman looked at it he said the tub liner was warping. The tub liner could not be replace so we would need a new unit. This washer was 3 years old. When I called GE they said that dishwashers should last 8-10 years and offered to give me $150 credit which I found acceptable. Two weeks later the same thing happened to a second exact unit. This time when I called GE it was a completely differect expierence. They said they would have to send an authorized GE person out to look at it...The earliest appointment was a week. When the GE repairman can out he confirmed that it was a warped liner. The problem was he could not get through to GE so he had to reschedule to come back AGAIN in another week. At that time he could STILL not reach the office- so he emailed them. In the meantime I have a tenant now that has not had a working dishwasher for 2 weeks. Another week went by before I heard from GE. At which time I was told they could offer me a $30 credit. I told them to shove it!!! I understand these units are the bottom of the line and would be willing to pay for any repair that might have been needed but the entire unit could not be repaired. Obviously this product is defective. We have original dishwashers in 70% of our unit which we bought in 1993 and are still running fine. When I ask the GE rep if thier product is only expected to last three years she could not answer that question. Needless to say we are VERY disappointed in how GE handled this situation and will not be buying ANY products from them in the future. I now have a third unit that looks like the same thing is happening to. So all the people that gavet this item a good rating....I'd like to see if you feel the same way in 2-3 years

The point of a dishwasher is to clean your dishes...right?

This was inexpensive, but I was ok with knowing it would be a little noisy and low on features. But it does not clean dishes well. Many times more than a third of the dishes need cleaned by hand afterword.

It looks nice and runs, just wish it cleaned.

I own a 1962 Avacado double oven/stove. It is the wierdest thing ever. It works well but boy is it ugly as sin.

GE Americana Series 1

To sum it up in one word: JUNK! This dishwasher has been the bane of my existence. I have tried everything to get this dishwasher to actually wash dishes. The dishwasher is only just over one year old. I've tried cleaning all the filters and parts. I've tried multiple brand-name detergents. I've tried dishwasher liquid cleaning products to cycle through the dishwasher. I've tried rinse agents. I pre-rinse all dishes that go into the dishwasher. And I've also tried loading as little as 1/2 of its dish capacity. But no matter what I've tried this dishwasher has constantly failed me on every single wash, leaving behind small food particles and detergent films.

I absolutely recommend that everyone in the market for a dish washer stays as far from this series as possible. Do not let the price of the dishwasher entice you to select it. You will be utterly disappointed and will end up purchasing a better dishwasher shortly thereafter.

Spend a little more money up front in order to save yourself the complete aggravation that I have experienced.
