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.

Nice New Addition to the home

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Frigidaire 24" Built-In White Dishwasher:

This unit was bought to replace a very similar one that I received from a friend. He was remodeling his home and ended up not needing the previous one. That one very shortly after I installed it, stopped working. Had to make the decision to get a new one or not. We decided to go with this unit. It has been working very great. Don't like how it has the garden hose inlet but made it work. It's been running a lot lately and am pleased with the efficiency of this machine. It was stated that this was a louder model because it has a lot of plastic. As with many appliances you can hear them which I don't mind. It's not anymore loud than other units that I have heard. Bottom line. It works great.

quiet and does a great job for the price

By 

from youngstown, Oh

Comments about Frigidaire 24" Built-In White Dishwasher:

Easy install. Looks good, The installation instructions are not detailed so you really have to be prepared to read them and then start. It's so quiet we have to check and see if it's actually running! We've only had it a couple of weeks but everything is working well so far.

Comments about Frigidaire 24" Built-In White Dishwasher:

We had been putting off buying a new dishwasher for a long time. The old one just was no cleaning the dishes anymore. I am glad we picked this one. I cleans the dishes thoroughly.

Ok for now, but down the road...?

By 

from Brooklyn, NY, United States

Comments about Frigidaire 24" Built-In White Dishwasher:

I'm tentatively giving this dishwasher 4 stars. It's an extremely basic model, and so far everything is operating as it should. However, the construction seems very low quality--the plastic is real flimsy and the various parts just don't feel solid. Only time will tell, but I don't have confidence that this appliance will hold up very well in the long term.

Lots of room...especially in the top rack

By 

from Iowa, United States

Comments about Frigidaire 24" Built-In White Dishwasher:

This is a great machine for every day family use...the top rack has so much room for glasses, cups and bowls. I wish that it had a little more power to clean pans, though. I actually cook and bake a lot and find that it doesn't do well if anything is the slightest bit stuck on pans.
