Happy dish washer 10/16/2020

Our old dishwasher died slowly and time of death was called July 16, 2020. We contacted a local appliance dealer to purchase a new one. We originally chose a competitor's product, but because of the COVID pandemic, the company's supply chain was disrupted. We decided to choose your product instead of waiting a month for the other product. I can't say the other company's product is worse or better, but I can say your product was reviewed more favorably. That said, thus far your product has been great. I like being able to set the water temperature, the unit is super quiet, and the dishes come out nice and clean. My only complaint after a couple of months is the layout of the upper rack, which is smaller and with a somewhat awkward configuration compared to our older unit. We're adjusting, however, and we're glad we chose your product. Overall, I'll give the unit a four because of the awkward upper rack. If not for that issue, I'd give your product a five-star rating.

I like the machine except for one thing---I wish the utensil rack was to the front of the rack instead of the back.

Love It!

ShariG 10/5/2020

We have had this dishwasher installed for a little over 2 weeks now. Purchased because it fits in our small kitchen and we haven't had a dishwasher for the 23 years we have lived in this house. It fit perfectly in the cabinet space that we took out and cleans the dishes without spots. It's great! Thank you!

1st Dishwasher

Kc4444 9/21/2020

We never had a dishwasher before since our kitchen area is small. But the 18" was just the right size. We have only had it a month and has worked great. There are times when the noise is a little distracting, but we have learned to run it at night so we do not heard it at all.

Good Small Size Washer

CSeanSpi 9/8/2020

We bought this dishwasher recently and so far it has performed as expected. I would note that the prongs are designed and laid out in a tight configuration so you are somewhat limited in how to place dishes inside the washer. But I think this was done to try to accommodate more place settings (assuming they fit into the compact spacing).

Problematic..

ThisOneGuy 8/27/2020

Install was not the easiest, plus it was almost too short for the opening (standard size cabinets). Had the dishwasher for just over a month and it stopped working mid cycle. It™€™s been over two weeks and still waiting on the parts to fix it. At least it™€™s under warranty... this time. Frigidaire is/was a great brand, starting to wonder if that™€™s no longer the case.

Great Dishwasher for the Money

pzero24 8/4/2020

I have had my Fridgidaire dishwasher for a few weeks now, and I am very happy with it so far. From installation to usage, it hasn't given me any problems that I didn't cause myself. The cabinet is understandably smaller as it is a compact model.Using the dishwasher is very simple. I typically do not wash any pots or pans, so the 1-hour wash setting gets my dishes perfectly clean and takes much less time. I do find that most of the other settings are not really relevant to me personally, but it's good that they have those options for those that need them.My only issue with this dishwasher is the design of the dish rack. The pins are way too close together, which makes putting bowls into take much more space than is necessary. There was definitely more priority given to plates than to bowls in how it was set up, but my family uses a lot of bowls. I personally wished the rack had a removable insert that took away some of the pins.

Happyno1 7/3/2020

In less than a month the dishwasher is leaking, even when it is not in use. I called Service from July 1 and they cannot send someone before July 9. I am so scared of water damage to the unit below me

Dead on Arrival!

Common Problem 4/1/2020

I bought this over a month ago. It was delivered on March 10 and today is April 1st. I have had two repair visits and it still needs a water level part. Frigidaire did give me an extra year warranty coverage but it has not worked since nice day one. I will check to see if the lemon law can help. Major league disappointment!

Dramatic Improvement over the previous model

lee bee 3/12/2020

I previously onwned a Frigidaire 18" dishwasher and I was not happy with it. The filter had to be cleaned very often and the dishes were not coming out clean. The store representative assured me that he was getting positive review on this model and I am glad I listened. I have not had to clean the filter in the month+ I own it and dishes come out much cleaner. The racks are a much better design too.

Great feature packed "little" machine

Mpdes 1/1/2020

I had an older Frigidaire 18" dishwasher for many years and only updated it because we were doing the kitchen floor over. I was excited to get control and features not previously available in my older one's era. A big plus with the upper rack spray nozzle, stainless interior, and an electronics panel with a lot of bells and whistles including my favorite: delay start.I would recommend to anyone in need of an 18" model.

The variety of wash and rinse settings are great for conserving water and electricity. If you have something specific that won't require a long cleaning cycle, you have plenty of choices for time and temperature.

Dishes are coming out sparkling clean.

Mom29cats 10/29/2019

Have had my 18™€ dishwasher for about 3 weeks I was a little confused about how to tell the level of the Finish dry at first, so dishes weren™€™t coming out fully dry. I purchased this model specifically for the heating element to dry the dishes. You have to fill the well with the Finish dry until you see the little black line showing full, but don™€™t overfill. This is the ke to having dry dishes. This small dishwasher is just the right size for 2 people. We are retired and don™€™t do a lot of involved meal prep/cooking.

Big Work in a Small Size

Piano Girl 10/29/2019

I planned to buy a full size dishwasher when my current dishwasher bit the dust. After a lot of research I decided to go with the 18 inch built in dishwasher. We are glad we did. Not only does this dishwasher save cabinet space, but it does a great job.

Good job on heavy

deacon8385 8/2/2019

I started using this item about one month ago. I does a very good job on the heavy setting but not as good on the others. My main complaint is with the control panel as it can't be read without getting down on your knees and getting a flashlight to read the small print on the controls. The print is almost the same color as the background. Unit was easy to install as I did it myself. Good instructions.
