This dishwasher is adequate for a small dishwasher. Note that it is not very tall and the feet had to be extended about 2" to meet the standard-height countertop. But this is typical for the 18" dishwashers. It is IDENTICAL inside to the GE 18" model - I asked the salesman what the difference was and he said they were made in the same factory. So far, it is performing well and cleaning the dishes and pots and pans. But don't be fooled by the "quiet sound" package - it is not at all quiet compared to my three previous 24" higher quality dishwashers that can barely be heard 6 feet away. You can hear the water swishing against the interior walls well into the next room (and it is not in an open kitchen). So if this is your price point, the Frigidaire and the GE will perform the same and be satisfactory. Pay more for the Bosch and I'm pretty sure it will be a quieter machine.

I've had this washer for two years and it has never done the job. We've simply lived with it all this time. It looks pretty cheap, is loud, is very slow to cycle, doesn't wash or dry properly,leaks detergent everywhere, the steel inside is stained, and it's hard to load due to the awkward rack setup. Dishes come out cloudy, spotty and/or still dirty, and are never fully dryed. Also, everything must be pre-rinsed. DO NOT BUY THIS.

Wife LOVES IT!

By 

from San Benito, TX, United States

Comments about Frigidaire Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:

Wanted small dishwasher for a park model. Added counter space onto kitchen/living room area also added additional insulation around inside of cabinet for dishwasher as it was close to TV in living room. Was really surprised how quiet this machine is. We can watch TV and use the dishwasher without any problems. My wife removed the top of the silverware holder so our silverware would go into it, very easy to remove. Took advice from some one else who suggested running the hot water before starting dishwasher. Had to remember to do this. We do have a little water which sits atop of our cups because we don't tip them on the top rack which would solve this. Can wash some pots and pans but found if they have anything burnt on them need to wash by hand. Please note: we use the normal wash cycle and have not tried the pot n pan cycle for washing which might do a better job on the pots and pans. One thing we did learn is when closing the door to watch where you place your fingers because it is easy to hit a button to start a cycle. We are not sorry for buying this machine. Would recommend it to anyone who has a small place.

Quiet and performs well

By 

from Streetsboro, OH, United States

Comments about Frigidaire Stainless Built-In Dishwasher:

I got this dishwasher in April of 2016, so far no complaints at all. From the time I installed it, this thing runs like a champ. I got this because of the low amp draw, and did a lot of research on other dishwashers. This is a quiet dishwasher, has multiple wash cycles. For a quick hour or so wash, the energy saver wash cycles is great for not so dirty dishes. It has a hi-temp wash for the tough dishes to wash. Being an 18" it is smaller than a 24" obviously but it is perfect for my family. I would recommend this product, easy install as well.
