  The GE GLD5664VSS is a large-capacity, basic dishwasher with a few extras, like the adjustable and removable upper rack; fold-down tines in both racks for flexibility; sensor technology that adjusts the water levels to match the load; and the sleek look of the tall-tub design (no front access panel below the door). The start of a wash cycle can be delayed by two, four or eight hours, and a hard-food disposer grinds down chunks of food washed off the dishes. This machine may not be as quiet as many of the high-end models, but it should be less noisy than older dishwashers or most low-end models.
