The GE PDT855SSJSS is available in a panel-ready variant (PDT855SIJII), which lets users maintain a more streamlined-looking kitchen, and it lets users monitor its washing status through their smartphones, via its Wifi Connect feature (requires the GE Kitchen App to be downloaded first). It also looks like it keeps company with the more silent dishwashers, with its 40-dBA noise rating, which is not the most quiet, but already nearly touches the bottom of our table (at least as of 2016).

Also called GE PDT855SMJES, GE PDT855SIJII.
