My kitchen is pretty small, and unless I went with a major remodel, I had to stick to an 18" dishwasher if I wanted to have one installed. I've been using this model for a few weeks, and really like it. It's surprisingly quiet--my plumber remarked that many dishwashers have only a spray-on layer of sound insulation, while the Frigidaire is wrapped with actual padded insulation. My dishes are clean, and the stainless steel interior always looks good. I need to juggle a bit if I wash a number of large bowls, but other than that I have not had an issue with loading. This dishwasher is probably too small for a family of three or more, but it's perfect for a singleton or a couple.

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.

For Small Size, Fantastic!
Bought this after reviewing several 18" dishwashers and am glad we did. Great features and very quiet. We have always had this size so we had to stay with it or redo the kitchen. No need for a full size. This one holds a lot of dishes. as far as install, we had it installed but watched them do it and looked very simple.
nice features for an 18 inch
from Dayton, OH, United States
not sure why people are complaining about it not turning itself completely off. I've had dishwashers for years and none of them ever turn themselves completely off. in my home I have an expensive 24 inch which has every feature imaginable but it doesn't leave a light on when it is done. I wouldn't want one that didn't since you would like to know if there are more people in the house whether or not the dishwasher has clean dishes in it.
Quiet when in operation.
from Menasha, Wi.
Purchased this item a couple months ago and are very happy with the performance and how quiet it is when running. Our last dishwasher was the small one as well and was quite noisy when running.
Fits perfectly; quiet; stainless steel tub
By Radio Rick
from Pahoa, Big Island, Hawaii
We have a Balinese hardwood home in Hawaii without much counter and under cabinet space. Found a craftsman who disassembled the cabinet to the left of the sink, built a box for the new dishwasher and reassembled the cabinet to the left. Since matching our teak counter tops would have been impossible, found an end from a granite installation that's perfect for the coffee area above. Couldn't have done it w/o the 18" DW. Reviews were excellent, especially for the stainless tub.
Overall a great unit for small spaces
from Troy, NH, United States
I bought this dishwasher so we wouldn't have to hand wash as much. And it works surprisingly well for a small model. My only complaint was one of the metal tines to the top rack broke very quickly but the warranty covered a replacement. I am very happy so far, and look forward to using this model for years to come.
Clean, Reliable, Attractive
from Dorchester, Ma
My new dishwasher over the last 6 months has worked superbly and its appearance is very contemporary rounding out a clean finish in my new kitchen. Thanks
Just the RI\ight Size
from North East, PA, United States
I have wanted and dishwasher for year in my small kitchen. It meant that I would lose my only drawers so I resisted. That problem got solved and an 18 inch was the only size that would fit. It is adorable. I love it - fits everything, gets them clean and is so quiet. I can't say enough about it. Love it!!!
from Rittman, OH, United States
This was our first dishwasher in 50 years of marriage. We had limited space to have it installed and it works so well for us! Love it and does a great job for cleaning/drying dishes, pots/pans
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Does Excellent Job
from Georgia, United States
Bought this about a month ago. Wife just loves it. It may be small but does a great job of cleaning dishes. Sometimes we rinse before washing but also, have washed without rinsing and can tell no difference.
