If fits 33 5/8 and is still full sized inside!
Strengths: Full sized yet fits after new floors and countertops
After installing new countertops, and new hardwood floors, we realized a standard 34 inch dishwasher would no longer fit. I search all over the internet for advice for a full-sized Tall tub dishwasher that would still fit. I was unwilling to give up depth or rack size (btw beware, rack sizes have shrunk in many full sized models???), and found no help in the threads I found. I knew that if I was ever successful I would post about what I found to help the many others in my place. After measuring we discovered we only had 33 5/8 to work with. Specs on washers online are useless and not exact; you MUST see the dishwasher and measure all sides to discover its true min/max height. We finally found an LG that fit, but with HORRIBLE reviews, and were unwilling to try it. Instead we have gone with a GE Profile: PDWT280VSS GE Profile Built in Dishwasher with Hidden Controls. It is so new that it currently (9/20/11) has zero reviews. It arrived yesterday and it fits our space without removing the feet! It’s gorgeous, and after one load we are very happy. Quite enough that you can hear over it no problem, quieter models just don’t fit. I’ll update if we have any problems with it.

Purchased a week ago and have run several loads and I have no problem with the way way it cleans the dishes. The machine not only looks nice, it cleans very well. I would highly recommend this dishwasher as well as my other GE Profile appliances to anyone.

Do not Buy
As mentioned in the previous review - this dishwasher does not get your dishes clean! This is my third diswasher in my home and it is the by far worse than any of the other two. My first one was a cheap "builder installed" model - lasted 9 years. The second was a maytag (which I loved and would have kept if I didn't remodel my kitchen with stainless appliances). This just does not do the job - even after trying every detergent, every setting and every suggestion by manufacturer!

GE makes the worst stainless dishwashers
You'd be a chump if you bought this $600 product. You'd have to find another $500 and the space to install a dedicated water heater, then this may be the product for you. This dishwasher replaced two previous ones that lasted for 10 years each. Within a few months there was severe blade clogging and streaking. The GE tech insisted that "modern" dishwashers did not have localized heating to qualify as energy-efficient, and then lowered my expectations that I would be always unhappy with the dishwasher until I installed a local water heater, and that modern soaps could not contain some chemical any longer and did not break down and combine well with less than 120 degrees water. Nowhere in any literature does GE warn you that you have to install a local heater in most homes where the main heater is more than 20 feet away.
