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.

Good looking

Lovesushi 9/14/2020

I've only had an opportunity to use this twice. It seems like the cycles are quite long and I'm not sure how much water they use. Also, I put it on heat dry, but some of the things were still wet. Additionally, the washer still had water in it 2 days later and I have to leave the door open in order for it to dry out.Therefore, I'm not sure about the drying feature. Do I have to use a drying aid in order for everything to dry? Overall, it is a nice dishwasher.

Super quiet.

Culebra56 9/12/2020

Great machine. Cleans everything extremely well, and quietly. The user manual mentions fold-down tines on the lower basket, but my model does not have that feature. My model, does, however, allow the upper basket to be lowered so taller items can be loaded there - which the manual does not mention - - I discovered this on my own.I run the 1 hour wash cycle without heat dry, nearly every day, and my electric bill has not been noticeably affected. The only issue is that the rinse aid drains directly out from inside the door, indicating that the dispenser is cracked or otherwise defective. A new one is on order though, so no worries.

Sump leak and terrible repair support

Ludwig 9/10/2020

I'm telling everyone I know to not buy frigidaire products. My experience with this dishwasher is the same as many other 1 start reviews - a leak error message and terrible service getting the repair. The dishwasher has been broken for longer than it worked. Electrolux has serviced my dishwasher three times now and they keep literally guessing at what part it could be. I'm cutting my losses and buying a different dishwasher.

Wiscobuffalo 9/7/2020

I like the stainless steel look. It does what is expected of an 18" inch dishwasher. It cleans extremely well and has saved me hours of manually washing dishes every week. It has great basic features such as delayed start, heated drying, extended wash cycles, and is extremely quiet.

Unhappy with this dishwasher

rose p 9/5/2020

this is the dishwasher installed by my apartment complex. Normal wash cycle takes close to 2.5 hours to complete and when done dishes are still wet as if there is no drying cycle whatsoever.

MP69 9/2/2020

Bought this model as a replacement for a Frigidaire 2004 model. Cleaning is great, but, the model is smaller than the 2004 model and the inability to place a lot of dishes and glasses and utensils in the racks due to the rack tines placement leaves alot to be desired.

Worst dishwasher on the planet

DOUG334 8/25/2020

I bought this a couple of months ago and it is already broken and just try and get fidgidaire to send someone who knows what they are doing to try and fix it no they send idiots who can't even figure out how to take the dishwasher out the cabinet I am so stressed out with this and it's been broken for over a month and still no repair man can come and fix it they are supposedly ordering a pressure sensor without even looking at the dishwasher I am so upset with the way we are being forgotten about on a daily basis I will never ever buy fidgidaire again

Great dishwasher for 18" compact space and drying your dishes!

NOLA Summer 8/16/2020

We bought this for our compact second home - and it allowed us to install a compactor. Having the two together is great. The dishwasher is better than we imagined - and the heating element dry cycle is exactly what we need in the humidity driven south. Works great and I would buy another.

Super Compact and Super Performance

Willow Glennite 8/15/2020

I purchased this dishwasher as part of an appliance package for my home renovation. The designer suggested this size to maximize the cabinetry. It holds a large load of dishes, has several cycle selections, and is amazingly quiet. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

BillChuck 8/3/2020

Very quiet - I can hear a game or movie when it is running. Filter setup was a welcome upgrade from my last dishwasher. Easy buttons and at least as many cycles as you need. After playing with the adjustable legs, et al I got this puppy to snug into the spot perfectly.

Decent dishwasher

TedTheDIYer 7/7/2020

Pros: stainless steel interior. Quieter than the old dishwasher. Washes dishes.Cons: The drain outlet is on the front which meant I had to replace the water line with a longer one (the old dishwasher drain outlet was on the bottom). The leveling feet are plastic not steel. The entire bottom of the dishwasher was covered with a plastic cover (probably a sound deadener) and would likely take longer to disassemble for repair. They also have the inlet hole for the wire strain relief into the electrical box so close to the dishwasher bottom that you have to install the wire in the relief, then clamp it down, then turn the relief backwards so the screw heads are facing the bottom before inserting it into the electrical box hole.Yeah I know people buy these things for the looks and ease of use but is it really necessary to shaft the service guy who is installing the thing with oddball placements? Some of us install our own appliances and we can see what you think you are hiding. Next time put the water inlet in the BACK. And the strain relief hole placement is just a dumb millennial designer who designed the dishwasher but has never held a screwdriver in their life!!! I suppose I should be thankful they got the strain relief hole the right size!!

Fits in a small space, does the trick!

Sarah22 7/6/2020

We bought this to fit within an 18" cabinet space, and it fits perfectly. I bought it because it was the only one at this price point that had a drying feature, whereas dishwashers of the same size at this price point from the other brands did not seem to have heat drying. The drying feature works rather well, but you will still find some water resting on top of the glasses, etc. I think this is rather normal, in my experience anyway, and we just leave the dishwasher open for a bit before unloading to let them air out.The instructions say that it needs at least 2" clearance from the wall, but ours is installed right against the wall (about 1/8" clearance) and it opens just fine.

Had nothing but issues with the unit.

JChesser26 6/1/2020

I™€™ve had to have it replaced once already, we purchased in January, then had issues with the draining, been waiting on parts for that since for a month and a half. When it was running it ran great. But it has been a nightmare. We™€™ve only been able to use it for 1 1/2 months out of the 5 months we™€™ve had it. It looks nice, when the thing works it works great, but it hasn™€™t been running for us long enough to actually give a fair review of how well it runs regularly bc since we™€™ve had it, its been broken longer than in service.

Kate R 5/30/2020

I bought this as an addition to a kitchen remodel. We moved into a fixer upper that didn't have a dishwasher. I didn't want to lose a bunch of cabinet space but I also needed a dishwasher! I was so pleased to find out they made them smaller than the standard so we only had to cut out one cabinet. The dishwasher holds a lot more than its size might suggest. It cleans incredibly well and fast. It is fairly quietly as well. The sleek stainless steel looks beautiful with my other stainless steel appliances. I am pleased with this purchase.
