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.
