Very Quiet!

Submitted by NYCdave - 6/18/2021

Was one of the more affordable brands, but it cleans very well, looks good (I would describe the design as sleek) and is the quietest dishwasher I've ever had.

wonderful upgrade

Submitted by musicianmotl - 4/3/2021

Got this a month ago and it is a great upgrade over our older dishwasher. It does make some weird noises at times as it stops and starts, but it gets the dishes clean. And at the end of the day, that is it job.

well-built, compact dishwasher

Submitted by dennis2 - 3/23/2021

We preferred this dishwasher because it was one of the few 18" models with a steam-dry option. The dishwasher provides a variety of settings, and has modern features like soil level detection, load detection, etc. It is not too loud and it cleans very well. It can fit a surprising number of dishes, and overall it looks and feels very well-built. It fits a surprising number of dishes for an 18" dishwasher, but do not expect to fit large pots in it. Sometimes, some of the dishes come out a bit wet even after the steam dry cycle, but this is definitely better than any condensation-dry option. Perhaps my water is hard and needs some rinsing agent. Good product overall.

Simple to run, washes and dries well.

Submitted by HandyD - 3/10/2021

We've only had this unit installed and running for a couple of weeks, but this has been long enough to see that works well- easy to load (adjustable height top rack is a great feature), holds a lot for an 18 inch unit, and washing/drying performance is very good. You do have to be mindful to not put items that have a small opening and a tall inside in the four corners of the top rack- these don't get enough wash water projected into them by the upper washer arm. We put bowls and other shallow items in the corners, and it does great with these. The door is a bit flimsy, but it shuts securely. Installation was very easy except for the water line hook-up. The T fitting tightened facing in a bad direction, making it very difficult to line up the water line-- there was interference with the plastic casing of the internals of the dishwasher.

Doesn't work. Lack of customer support.

Submitted by WM20 - 12/26/2020

Bought this over a month ago. After install I ran a cycle just to make sure it ran and it stopped within 5 minutes. It won't even power up. Called for warranty repair and lengthy hold times. First time service was to come they cancelled and said they would come next week. The dishwasher rarely will even power on as I check it daily. The day before service was to come it turned on and would power up when the service guy was here so they say nothing is wrong with it. I run a rinse cycle later that day to confirm it will work then load up dishes and plan to wash. It runs a few minutes then quits and won't power up. I can't get thru to customer service and have called numerous times with hold times over an hour. At this point I want a new unit or just give me my money back and I'll shop elsewhere. Customer service lacking.

Great dishwasher

Submitted by hds2118 - 12/7/2020

I bought this dishwasher about a month ago and have been very happy with the product. The sanitize feature is a favorite. It is sleek and easy to use. Some reviews have said it does not dry dishes properly, but I haven™€™t had an issue yet. I™€™m still figuring out the most efficient way to load the dishes, but I like the overall design.

Submitted by tap6 - 11/29/2020

This machine was a replacement for our original 15yr old dishwasher. I washes well and is very quiet. I do find the utensil basket to be too small. I am still trying (after 2 weeks) to figure out the best configuration for the dishes. The inside is very strange.

Door will not stay open

Submitted by Louis 1 - 11/11/2020

I am not happy. The door does NOT stay open. I must be weighted with the bottom rack or my knee or else it will pop back. I called customer service twice, and each time the automated voice tells me to call back. You are too busy to take my call.

Great Features

Submitted by Judy walden - 10/19/2020

Bought this a few months ago and picked it due to the rating and also needing a smaller dishwasher. Love it, very quiet when running you would hardly know it™€™s running, does an excellent job on dishes and overall just what I wanted after 25 years of not having one and Frigidaire is a good appliance in my opinion.

Compact but big on function.

Submitted by 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.

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

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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..

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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.

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

Submitted by 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.

Submitted by 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.
