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.

Love It

By 

from southeast, mi

Comments about Frigidaire Black 18" Built-In Dishwasher:

I purchased this about a month ago, my son installed if for me right away. I am so happy with my purchase. It is quite roomy and I love that I seldom have to hand wash those small plastic cups and lids, as small things have their own place. It's very quiet and even though I don't use all the different settings, I am happy to have them as a bonus if I should need them. I got a great deal and am very happy with my new dishwasher.

Was a great gift

By 

from Arizona, United States

Comments about Frigidaire Black 18" Built-In Dishwasher:

Received this as a gift from our daughter. We were starting a complete kitchen remodel and had to modify our cupboards a little to add a dishwasher. Glad we did as it works very well and is a lot quieter than any other I have been around. Dishes come out sparkling clean also.

Excellent cleaning.

By 

from Ohio, United States

Comments about Frigidaire Black 18" Built-In Dishwasher:

I have never had a dishwasher until 3 months ago. My husband and I wanted to update our very small kitchen and we had to choose the 18" Frigidaire because of space restraitants. I figured that a "small" dishwasher was better than none. But, I have to tell you...we are very pleasantly surprised. The "smaller" dishwasher is totally a little powerhouse! So very, very pleased! Way to go Frigidaire!!!!

For Small Size, Fantastic!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Frigidaire Black 18" Built-In Dishwasher:

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

By 

from Dayton, OH, United States

Comments about Frigidaire Black 18" Built-In Dishwasher:

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.

By

Comments about Frigidaire Black 18" Built-In Dishwasher:

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.

Compact and Quiet Dishwasher

By 

from Glen Allen, Virginia

Comments about Frigidaire Black 18" Built-In Dishwasher:

Extremely easy to install with old school quality. Needed a dishwasher for a confined area and the Frigidaire FFBD1821MB worked out extremely well. Had all the features I had in mind although initially the cost seemed high, after a few months of use it was worth the investment and I am very pleased.
