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.

Fits perfectly; quiet; stainless steel tub
By Radio Rick

Comments about Frigidaire Black 18" Built-In Dishwasher:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Great compact dishwasher
from Dallas, TX, United States
We buy a lot of this unit and the really work great for our apartment complex
Great Little Unit
We bought this for our family of 3 and it does a fantastic job. It just stinks that these small ones cost as much or more than some of the full size ones. Other than that we are super happy with our purchase.
I could not be more pleased with this dishwasher. Everything fits inside and it does a great job cleaning and drying. Quiet, too. The black finish is also nice, not too shiny.
a solid choice

Comments about Frigidaire White 18" Built-In Dishwasher:
Some of the slots in the bottom rack are so close together, it can be hard to fit in larger items, including Tupperware. Also, some water collects on the top of cups, in the lip of Tupperware, etc., using the normal cycle. Otherwise, it works well, cleans well, not too loud or disturbing, and looks nice inside and out. The manual filter is simple.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was great. This was also a brand new installation. It was done with care, and finished in about 3 hours, including removing cabinets, adding electrical and plumbing, as well as testing. No leaks or problems since the install.
