    Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

    Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

    Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

    Good So Far

    Busybeebeb 7/31/2022

    I bought this appliance and installed it about 3 weeks ago. So far, it's performing well. The dishes are clean after the normal wash. The unit is also relatively quiet. I can hear it but it's not disturbing. I have to put on a heat dry for the dishes not to be completely dry.I have yet to try all the wash settings. But so far good and I hope it lasts. :-)

    Perfect dishwasher for condo

    Jumbles 7/20/2022

    Remodeled my condo, which had a 24" dishwasher, by going to an 18" dishwasher and a smaller sink base I was able to add a set of drawers next to my range! I was hesitant because I wanted a good quality dishwasher. I've done several loads and am very happy with how clean the dishes are and the tupperware is even dry.

    Relatively quiet, Can not see button options

    MarkDsen 7/15/2022

    It appears to be an adequate dishwasher. Even though it is one of the loudest rated 18" dishwashers (52dB), it is comfortably quiet. Our living room, dining room and kitchen are one large room. We start the dishwasher after dinner, and proceed to the living room to watch some tv. The only time we hear the machine is when it's draining. My main issue with the unit is the display bar. It is next to impossible to see the wording. I keep the manual handy, just to know what buttons are where.

    I™€™ve had the dishwasher a little over a month now and so far so good! For a smaller size dishwasher, it holds a good amount of dishes! Dishes always come out clean. Only complaint is it is a little loud, but other than that, no issues!!

    Hot Wash 6/5/2022

    Without the smaller size option I wouldn't be able to have a dishwasher. It is very quiet and has many wash settings. My only wish would be that the control panel was easier to read and the indicator lights are to little and to dim.

    Design Flaws

    Bentley Boy 5/22/2022

    This dishwasher cleans well but has design flaws. First, the dishwasher only offers one hole to attach it to the countertop. This hole makes the dishwasher sit too far forward. It would be nice if there were several hole options. Secondly, the front kick plate and the trim around the dishwasher is black. This is a white dishwasher, so it makes the gap stand out between the white dishwasher and white cabinets.

    There are so many things I love about this dishwasher it™€™s sleek and allows for kitchen cabinets; it™€™s very quiet and holds a lot of dishes. But most important is that it cleans so well. This was a great purchase I™€™ve had so many bad dishwashers in the past

    18 in dishwasher fits my home

    Happy Golfer 5/10/2022

    I have a winter home in FL and it is in a mobile home community. I missed having a dishwasher as the kitchen is very small. We were excited to find an 18 inch dishwasher. It cleans good and is quiet. I can fit everything we use during the day in it and run it nightly. We are very happy with this dishwasher. It was easy to install . The only thing we needed to purchase other than the install kit was a T to ahh to the water line. This was because we did not already have a dishwasher installed. I recommend this dish washer.

    I love my new little dishwasher in my tiny 1,000 sq ft home! I don™€™t rinse my dishes off before putting them in the dishwasher and they always come out very clean! It™€™s also an extremely quiet dishwasher,. It™€™s hard to know it™€™s running, it™€™s that quiet! I highly recommend this dishwasher!

    I appreciate the size and inside configuration of my new 18™€ Frigidaire dishwasher. It does an excellent job cleaning dishes, flatware, and glassware to a sparkling finish. I also appreciate that the finishing liquid can be loaded in a dispenser, which then operates automatically for a significant period before needing a refill. However, even when I remember to run the hot water prior to turning the dishwasher on, the dishes, flatware, and glasses are not completely dry at the end of washing cycle. With that exception, it is an outstanding product.

    Frigidaire dishwasher works well

    KellyB22 4/25/2022

    I had been wanting a new dishwasher for several years. My old one had so many issues. I am so happy I was finally able to buy a new one that works well and was reasonably priced. Frigidaire is a great brand, and I am very pleased with how quiet the dishwasher is and how well it works. I also like that it's ADA compliant!

    Worked twice, and now has a permanent i4 error message. The interior is blocked and has permanent moisture. Brought a plumber out to fix it, and all the plumbing to and from the machine is without error- it's just the machine. Not to mention - INCREDIBLY loud.

    Excellent 18" dishwasher

    Vgriego 3/3/2022

    This is the first dishwasher that we've owned, so we were kind of nervous. But after a lot of research we went for this 18" dishwasher because of the size and good reviews. We were not dissapointed. This appliance is perfect for our needs, good size for a family of 2, good performance, and relatively quiet for a dishwasher. I love that my dishes are always clean and spotless. I use cascade complete with dawn fresh scent and i love the lemon one to. I also use a generic rinse aid and is consistent every time. My favorites settings are energy saver and normal wash. I really enjoy using this appliance. Thank you, this is a game changer in our family. We can now have less time in the kitchen thanks to this dishwasher.

    Not as good as my old Frigidaire dishwasher

    MJ Wise 2/14/2022

    I wish I would have gone into a store to look at it first rather than purchasing it online. My old Frigidaire dishwasher finally gave out after having it for over ten years. The new one doesn't hold as many dishes as the old one. Rather than running the dishwasher once a week, I now have to twice a week. I'm a little disappointed that they changed the design.

    Be Aware - Buy the extended warranty

    Susan BG 2/11/2022

    Purchased in 11/2019. Error message came on 12/2021 and it would not work. (no, did not purchase extended warranty, have never had problems with appliances in under 5 years!!) Went to Frigidaire website for help and they sent repair service, spent $129 to be told that MAYBE, 75% sure, they could repair for another $350. Decided to go with another brand.

    Quietest Dishwasher Ever!

    Nancylee 1/27/2022

    We winter in AZ in a park model but can't live without a dishwasher, no matter how small the kitchen! We had this Frigidaire Spacesaver installed and it not only looks good with our other stainless steel appliances, it doesn't have a handle, so takes up less space, is well insulated so it doesn't heat up the countertop nor the kitchen and is THE QUIETEST DISHWASHER I HAVE EVER OWNED!! I have a 6-year-old Fridigaire dishwasher in my home up north that I thought was quiet, but it may get replaced if this machine represents the new technology. Thank you Frigidaire!

    Sets you up for failure

    SarahP 1/14/2022

    Absolutely NOTHING you need comes with this product. We have searched multiple home depots for 50 cent bits and pieces. Unbelievable to me that you could purchase an expensive product such as this dishwasher only for it to show up with nothing you need to get it started. It would be like ordering a table with no legs. The manufacturer clearly does not care about the product it puts out when they immediately set you up for failure. Don't even get me started on the directions... Seriously shocked and disappointed.

    18" SS Built-In Dishwasher

    Biehn 1/6/2022

    We are so happy with our Frigidaire dishwasher. When we redid the kitchen in our duplex in the fall of 2021, we needed to modernize and upgrade both the look and the workability of the space. Given all the windows, doors and other constraints, we had to find a solution. The 18" dishwasher is/was the perfect answer to a very difficult space and convenience problem. And it works perfectly. It is quiet, sleek looking, and provides enough dishwashing space to make clean up much easier and faster. We would recommend this dishwasher. We also purchased a Frigidaire refrigerator and are happy with the shelving space and the modern esthetic the SS finish brings to our 1910 kitchen.
