Rated 3 out of 5 by Planned Obselecense Hope it lasts longer than GLDA690P02
Good Dishwasher when it works.
The previous model GLDA690P02WW lasted 5 1/2 years. Had to replace with another GLDA model due to size issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AlanB50 Dishwasher is adequate
Unfortunately we did not have enough clearance space to fit a normal-sized dishwasher to replace the one we had, so had to get an ADA-compliant one, which is slightly smaller. The dishwasher is quiet and does a good job of washing the dishes, however, its drying cycle takes an excessively long time. Also the arrangement of the tines in the dish racks is not convenient for washing bowls or other large or oddly-shaped items. We do like the stainless steel interior. We are somewhat concerned that the dishwasher may only last 7-10 years as the sales associate warned us. Our old one lasted over 20 years, so we are concerned about the apparent lack of durability of newer dishwashers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vvvvjjjjffff Nice dishwasher
This has only been in use for one week. So far, so good. It is quiet (at least compared to our previous dishwasher). It cleans and drys well. Most important, the ADA height worked for our lower than standard countertops. Cons -- the normal wash cycle seems a bit long (about 2 hours with heat dry) and I find it difficult to fill the top rack (it's almost like the top rack doesn't pull out far enough). The interior seems smaller than my last dishwasher, but that has not yet been a problem for us.

The first dishwasher I purchased didn't work at the time it was installed. So a replacement was ordered. I used the replacement for a month and then it stopped working (same issue).

Rated 1 out of 5 by KayCarter Not very capable
Only had for about 2 weeks. Loud and dishes no cleaner than with my old broken dishwasher. Would give zero stars if I could. Immediately removed and replaced with model GDT580SMFES. Much better model. Don't bother with GLDA 690FWW

We bought this to replace a unit we had for 24 years. We needed to get this model because we had put in a new tile floor and due to height restrictions, this was the only model GE that would fit. Buying it sight unseen was a concern but when it
was delivered a pleasant surprise was the stainless interior. It cleans really well. I
removed most of the upper rack attachments for wine glasses, leaving one in, also I removed 2 of the basket covers on the utensil basket. The normal wash
was very long, it seemed, but the light wash works very well. It is extremely quiet
when running. Excellent choice. My only complaint would be that the top rack
comes out only halfway, meaning I have to reach into the back to remove glasses and mugs.

This machine washes extremely well, however I am very disappointed in with some other aspects. The top rack is very hard to fill as it does not seem to come out fully so it is hard to get stuff in every spot. Also have a problem with it not always drying completely and have to frequently put some items in dish rack to finish the drying process.
