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 and 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.

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

Bottom rack won™€™t stay on the track

Submitted by freddiecatt - 11/2/2020

I moved into a newly renovated apartment with all new appliances two months ago. This dishwasher is such a pain that it™€™s often easier to wash my dishes by hand. The bottom rack refuses to stay on the track if there are more than a few dishes loaded into it. It™€™s as if the wheels are too small or the rack is too narrow. If you try to move the rack in or out of the machine it falls off the track and won™€™t move unless it™€™s lifted out of the gutter. It doesn™€™t happen some times, it happens every time. I was surprised to see it advertised as fitting service for eight because I can barely get service for two in the bottom rack before it revolts. I™€™m glad I didn™€™t pay for the machine but unhappy that it™€™s taking up cabinet space.

Good size for NYC apartment

Submitted by sophs - 10/25/2020

We had to retrofit a dishwasher b/c we made the poor decision of doing a full renovation on our kitchen in NYC and thinking it was fine not to have one. We've never owned one and now that we have one installed for the past month, it has made our lives so much better. We are a family of 3, we only run it maybe every other day at most b/c it fits so much even with the amount of dishes we generate. Not silent but more than quiet enough for us, dishes come out great and drying function works well.

Cheap manufacturing

Submitted by Billy1974 - 10/21/2020

I bought this about a month ago. It was very troublesome to install due to its non-standard height. Materials it was made from are fragile and the machine has a part that keeps leaking slightly from the front. The quality of wash is satisfactory, but I am not happy with the craftsmanship.

Submitted by LW Mo - 10/18/2020

I am still waiting to see how I will like my dishwasher. we installed it, and right away it leaked around the bottom of the door. I called where I purchased it from they said I needed to call Frigidaire. So I am waiting for a serviceman to come out. Doesn't seem right to me.

Very Satisfied

Submitted by Bobbie Ann - 10/6/2020

We had a Frigidaire 18" dishwasher that was 13 years old. It was showing it's age so we felt it was time to get a new one. The new one has a stainless steel front (the old one was black) and it matches our other appliances. It is so quiet that we don't even know it's running. That is the main reason for my satisfaction but the dishes also are very clean.

Nice Little Dishwasher

Submitted by PLmqt - 10/3/2020

I've used this 18" dishwasher 4 times since it was installed. It runs pretty quietly and I haven't had any problems with it. My only issue is that it is quite short. My plumber had to raise the feet up to their maximum height so the top of the dishwasher reached the countertop. Could've had an extra 5"-6" of interior height if it wasn't this short.

Submitted by billm31748 - 10/2/2020

We just moved into a new home and needed to replace the dishwasher it was in it due to it being old and leaky. Research many different home stores for an 18in dishwasher that met our needs, so far we are very pleased with the Frigidaire 18 inch dishwasher that we bought

I™€™ve been using it for a few weeks now, worth the purchase! Cleans dishes very well, quiet, easy to use. Only complaint is it™€™s hard to fit/angle larger bowls and pots because of the silverware basket. Cups, plates, and silverware fit perfectly. So happy to have a dishwasher in my life again.

Good looking

Submitted by 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.

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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.

Great dishwasher!

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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.

Cleans great...but,

Submitted by 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.

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

Submitted by 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

Submitted by 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.

Decent dishwasher

Submitted by 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!

Submitted by 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.
