Was great til the warranty ran out

7/28/2018

I bought this admittedly for the color. The slate which is only really offered by GE was exactly what I was looking for. I bought this a fridge and a stove. A couple years later it stopped drying.

No, I do not recommend this product

Awful dishwasher

5/26/2018

It worked pretty good for close to a year we have had parts replaced and the technician has been here numerous times says we are putting dishes in with food on them and clogging up the filter .... BUT the filter is clear everytime we check it and we rinse/practically wash them before they go in. Replaced pumps a few times works ok for a while then once again it does not work and now out of warranty. I love the color that about but now I cant find another that matches unless I buy the same one .

No, I do not recommend this product
