YAY RYAN! And dishwasher update

So excited! My sister had her pre-drywall earlier this week and it looks like they'll be able to move prior to family arriving from Germany! YAY!!! So excited about this!! We all are! There are no words for the excitement and relief we feel. Thank you Mr. PM!! YOU ROCK!

Remember my post about the dishwasher after we first moved in? I wasn't really thrilled with it, but found that Jet Dry did help some.

The other day, I stopped to tie my shoe. I was in the kitchen, in front of the dishwasher. I noticed a little bit of water running down the front of it from the vent at the top of it (it was drying the dishes at the time, so condensation build up maybe?). Could this be why the seam in my floor started to pull apart in front of the dishwasher? (we use it every day) I am not sure. But it would make sense, right? I don't know if we'll ever find an answer to that question.

We have the stainless steel GE model number GLD5660RSS. It has a small vent in the upper left corner of the dishwasher.

I have done some research and GE is no longer making this model (wonder if this why?). So hopefully anyone just now starting the building process won't get this model.

We loved how quiet it was. And we love that it has an alarm to tell you when the process is done and you can start unloading it. We wished for it to dry a bit better or at least have the option to dry/warm longer on the dishwasher. All just personal preferences really.

Now that we have noticed the water while drying issue, I'm paranoid. DH isn't fond of that either. So now we're saving up for a new dishwasher. lol Mother's Day maybe? lol


  1. Thanks! =) I love new appliances! lol

  2. Did you guys do the standard stainless package? We did and I am a little wary because my last house had all GE profile appliances. Should we upgrade?

  3. Yes, we just did the basic Stainless package. I'm not sure if you will get the same dishwasher as us or not. GE's site says it's discontinued. If you are already to pre-drywall, I don't think you can change much....
