Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Very pleased with new dishwasher.

SusieII 9/20/2022

This Frigidaire dishwasher works well. I am quite pleased. It's quiet and has a few more settings than my old one. I like the design of the tableware caddy, for it makes it easier to efficiently fill it with tableware.I might have designed the racks just a bit differently or made them, so they could be adjusted a bit. I don't often fill the racks with place setting for 8. Just the same, I'm pleased with the racks and I can put most skillets, and pots/pans in the dishwasher and everything comes out clean and air dried.Adding rinse aid ensures glassware comes out clean and much better looking than my old dishwasher towards the last.

JC714 9/11/2022

The dishwasher is just perfect for my 1 bedroom home. It fit perfectly in the space available and was easy to install. The adjustable legs meant it was a nice, snug fit up to the bottom of my counter. It™€™s easy to use, and does a great job cleaning and sanitizing my dishes.

Great compact dishwasher. Perfect for smaller spaces

jake615 8/24/2022

Great dishwasher. I installed a dishwasher in a kitchen that has never had one before and my only choice was to do an 18™€ dishwasher, unless I wanted to customize or replace a few of my cabinets. So far, this dishwasher has been great. We knew when we purchased it that the capacity would be less than that of a standard 24™€ but for a 2-3 person smaller household, this size dishwasher is able to handle our number of dishes just fine. Installation was simple and the cutout dimensional guide was perfect for cutting out an opening from my cabinets.The dishwasher itself works great. So far, the only complaint is that the dish pod holder can be tricky to snap closed and usually takes quite a few tries after putting a pod in.

Perfect For Our Small Space

TOMALLEN63 4/8/2022

This replaced our 18-year-old, 18" Kenmore beast that sounded like a jet plane just before it died! It's surprisingly quiet and gets dishes clean. Who could ask for more? I just have one beef: the bottom tray gets stuck EVERY SINGLE TIME I pull it out to load. I then have to wrestle to get it back on the track so that it can roll back in.

Better instructions would help

dcsemp 1/22/2022

So far it is a very nice machine as far as function. My problem was with the installation. No where in the instructions does it state what the size of the water intake connector is. When the installion kit I ordered that was recommended by the seller had the wrong connector, it took me a week of trial and error and trips to the store to find the right one.If it had simply stated the size, my life would have been a lot easier.

Love all the settings on this dishwasher. Fits alot for being half the size of a regular dishwasher. Easy to clean and haven't had any issues with its cleaning abilities, especially since I typically don't rinse dishes before loading.

Exactly Right

VJ2021 11/12/2021

After researching available 18" dishwashers, I went with the Frigidare. So far, and it has only been about a month, it has met my expectations. The black model looks great; it cleans well; it fits the small space that I have. The GE it replaced was over 10 years old and no problems until this year; that is what I hope for with this Frigidare. BTW I believe the Frigidare cleans better than the previous dishwasher when it, too, was new. Rated 4 stars for now because we haven't used it long enough to give it 5 star rating.

Game Saver

rgrove86 10/3/2021

As our 20 year-old dishwasher died, we search franticly for a new dishwasher. We found the reviews very favorable for this model. The modern design fits our kitchen perfectly. Operation of the Frigidaire was intuitive. All controls were well marked. The storage for dishes, cups and utensils were more than adequate. It is very quite which was a very nice difference than our old dishwasher. We have other Frigidaire appliances and they never have failed us. Would recommend this everyone.

Wrath 9/23/2021

There™€™s only two people in the house so a big washing machine would never have been filled. This little guy is just perfect, and I love all the settings that are offered. Low energy, quick wash, delicate, etc. My dishes are perfectly clean and don™€™t require you to scrub them over the sink first.

I bought this about 3 weeks ago, and it has been working wonderfully. despite it's compact size at 18", the space is more than enough for a small family of 3. The one touch buttons makes it easy to use. and it's not loud at all. We love this product!

well-built, compact dishwasher

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.

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.

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.
