Although at first glance, the GE PDT750SSFSS Profile 24" seems like an excellent choice, the bad customer reviews it has received made us doubt its yield.
The GE PDT750SSFSS Profile 24″ is a spacious dishwasher that can handle large loads of dishes and uses a wide range of features designed to make it very efficient. Although the price recommended by the manufacturer is $1,200, you can get it for as low as $799 on various websites of the retailers. Not the best in the range, nor, the most disappointing, this appliance might be what you are looking for.
Design and Capacity
It’s not hard to notice this model due to the beautiful design with a stainless steel finish, large door with the controls on top and a color LCD display that perfectly completes the stylish appearance. The interior is made of stainless steel as well and it can accommodate up to 16 place settings so you can easily adjust it to the needs of a large family. The overall dimensions of this built-in model are 34 x 24 x 23 inches and it weighs 115 pounds, making it an average size unit that won’t get you in trouble when it comes to fitting it.
The spacious interior of this appliance is smartly divided so that you can make room for every dish you have to wash, regardless the size or shape. The adjustable upper rack can be easily lowered or raised 2 in. in order to make room for tall glassware of large plates. This leaves plenty of room in the lower rack for big pots and cookie sheets. The silverware stays in place during every washing cycle thanks to the silverware basket with soft handles that allow you to separate and make room for all your cutlery. There is also a small items basket so you can keep the small dishes from spreading inside the appliance.
Features and programs
There are 7 washing cycles to choose from, so you will always find the one you need. There is a washing cycle for each amount of dishes you need to clean, as well as an Auto Sense one that measures the level of soil on the dishes. This unit can also rinse only and there is an eWash cycle that uses less energy while cleaning with the same efficiency.
If you want to extend your washing options, the unit offers you another 10 choices that include a delayed start for customizing the washing time, a pre-soak that increased the washing cycles with 30 minutes, a sanitize option that kills 99.99% of the bacteria from the dishes, as well as a heated dry for dishes that are ready to store. Thanks to the dedicated bottle wash jets in the upper rack, it offers the possibility to hard-to-reach items that normally remain dirty. With the Wash Zone option, you can decide which rack to half-load without taking up time or washing power from any cycle.
The revolutionary reversing quad-blade wash arm was integrated into the design so that the washing performance will be increased by the 25 spray jets that reverse direction so they will cover the whole interior. There are dedicated spray jets in the silverware basket as well for the best cutlery cleaning.
You will never use too much rinse aid or run out of it thanks to the Rinse Aid light indicator and Adjustment Electronic sensor that keeps an eye on the amount of rinse aid used and left in the detergent dispenser.
Performance and efficiency
For the ultimate dish cleaning, this unit features the most advanced system in the industry that uses more than 100 cleaning jets to cover the entire interior and to reach every spot of your dishes. However, the yield it has shown is not as satisfying as advertised and many users have stated that the performance is quite disappointing. What seems to a be another problem with this unit is the drying part where the dishes come out still wet. Bottom line, it has received some bad customer reviews that don’t make it a reliable choice when it comes to performance and quality.
The appliance uses an innovative technology called Alert Technology that easily detects the water leaks and lets you know about them through an alert notification. This adds to the durability of the unit, although repairing it is a matter of the service. Also related to the durability, the stainless steel tub ensures a perfectly clean and lasting interior for many years of intense use and it adds to the sanitation of every washing cycle.
As the advanced appliance that it is, this model is Energy Start rated and it meets or exceeds the federal guidelines in terms of energy efficiency and money saving. With an estimated yearly consumption of only 275 kWh, it will not add more than $24 to your electricity bill.
This is as quiet as a dishwasher can be, with a noise output that hardly reaches 42 dBA. Thanks to the quiet features that include a water valve, a sealed toe kick, and a tub collar trim, it keeps the noise inside so you won’t be disturbed by its operating. It is so silent that it has a status indicator to let you know if it’s washing or drying the dishes.
The short warranty of this product is one of its drawbacks and it doesn’t make it too trustworthy. You will only receive a 1-year warranty for the parts and labor, which is one of the shortest warranties in the industry.
