This dishwasher was a new install in a home that previously did not have a dishwasher. It was purchased as part of a 4-piece kitchen suite. DESIGN The design/aesthetics of this dishwasher is fantastic, especially for the price paid. The contrast of black and stainless steel go well together, so the unit is pleasing to the eye. I've only had mine installed for a little over a month now, and have had several compliments on it and the rest of my Frigidaire suite. It has fairly basic features/controls, not all the bells and whistles like other units. However, that is to be expected with a unit that's more budget-friendly. The only design flaws I see with the unit are the door handle/latch and the vent - the door latch is easy to engage in order to open the door, but there's very little to grab on to; you have to use your fingertips to get the thing open. a door latch with a bit more curvature and a front-facing surface would provide more grip for the user. The vent is located in the door in such a way that the hot, heavily most steam flows right to the underside of my countertop, which is a laminate. The exposed wood underneath is getting a bit wet, which concerns me a bit. How long will it take for the material of my countertop to get soggy/waterlogged? Luckily, I'm single and live alone, so the dishwasher only gets ran about once a week. FEATURES Like I mentioned before, this dishwasher doesn't have a lot for features. However, this is to be expected for a lower-cost unit. I'm pleased with what is offered on this unit, and it gets the job done! QUALITY The quality of this fridge isn't surprising - for a budget-friendly unit, the quality is about as good as it gets. Many factors affect the bottom line of a product from a business standpoint - quality of raw materials, workmanship, and manufacturing/assembly techniques are key. For a unit of this design and features available, the quality is pretty high. However, I do have a couple of concerns on this front as well - the door latch/handle and the stainless steel front cover. The door latch is cheap plastic (like the whole upper console on the door). Because of the feel and sound of the latch when opening and closing, I'm convinced the latching mechanism itself also has several (if not all) plastic components. Over time these will wear out, and eventually the door latch will no longer work - either locking you out of your unit, or making it impossible to lock and wash dishes. The stainless front cover is nice appearing, but don't play rough with it (I feel sorry for families that own this and have kids/pets). It is very thin gauge material and will easily dent/crease. This ties in to the bottom line cost of the unit in relationship to quality...stainless steel isn't cheap. I'd recommend that this cover be thicker in the future. It also seems that the stainless cover isn't mounted the best - I fear that, after my dishwasher gets "broken in", I will start to hear vibratory noises due to the stainless cover and the way it is mounted. It would have been a good idea to use some adhesive foam rubber on the backside of the cover to isolate vibration from the unit reaching the door. All in all, this is a good solid unit for someone looking for a dependable, low-cost dishwasher that will last at least a few years, if not longer. Having good quality water, using easily dissolved detergents, and gentle handling of the door and controls will ensure this unit will last.

Let's see. We've had this dishwasher a year. The design has it where the soap door doesn't open half the time and you have to run it through again, the cord that connects the door broke so the door just falls to the ground. Water leaks back into it about once a week. There's more. I can't remember. It has been serviced twice already. I know some of these might not be the dishwasher's fault, but they never happened with our old model. The only problem with the old model is that it didn't get our dishes clean. This one does, but half the time, it has to be run twice to go through a full cycle.

Comments about Frigidaire 24" Built-In Stainless Dishwasher:
I purchased a dishwasher recently after remodeling my kitchen. After I used the dry cycle I found my dishes were not dry. I put in a service call and learned that my dishwasher doesn't have a venting system and even though I have a dry cycle it would not dry dishes completely. In order to make sure the dishes are dry you have to open the door and leave it for 30 minutes or so. I would like to know why this is not made public to the consumer because I would never purchase a dishwasher that could not do the basic such as clean and dry dishes. I really want to hear back from you all on this matter. I have been a loyal customer to you all in the past because I never had a problem with my products. I am so disappointed with this matter.

Not so great!
from Lancaster PA
Bought this a couple months ago to replace a Frigidaire that was awesome. Loved the old dishwasher. Used it everyday, never added rinse aid, and dishes were clean and dry. This one had all the features of the replaced unit so I was excited to find a comparable dishwasher. Sadly this one isn't so great. Since I purchased this it hasn't dried the dishes. I again just got done drying the WHOLE load of dishes. NOTHING was dry. Did not even dry the vertical plates, and the utensils are dripping wet, not to mention the cups - inside and out. And yes, it has rinse aid in it and it has never dried dishes. Does an o.k. job washing, but sometimes have to hand wash a few dishes after the load is done. The water doesn't heat and it does not remove all the grime, but it does run quietly. Surely miss my old Frigidaire!!

This dishwasher was already installed in the house when I bought it. It's a reasonable machine but developed a defect last month when the drain ceased to work properly. Frigidaire arranged for a service engineer to come out quickly, under warranty, who fixed the problem relatively simply. So I'd commend Frigidaire's customer service.

I've had this dishwasher for a few months now & love it! I love how it has multiple water sprayers which leaves even pots & pans clean! I thought the "delayed" start option was odd and thought I'd never use it but boy I was wrong! After dinner I put in all the dishes, set the delayed start option, which gives me a chance of still adding dishes before bed. I had a bad habit of forgetting to turn on the dishwasher begore bed since I used to wait till bedtime to start the washer. The delayed option is a life saver! I know my dished will be clean by morning!
