    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.

    Great small dishwasher

    noble women 4/12/2024

    For a small capacity dishwasher, it does a great job. Pretty quiet. Dishes come out sparkling clean. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a smaller dishwasher

    Totally Disappointed

    18 inch diishwasher 4/10/2024

    The quality of the baskets not present anymore. The baskets both started rusting and there is no stopping them. Missing tines on both now and replacement baskets are extremely overpriced. And they™€™re back ordered with no firm ship date. I won™€™t be buying Frigidaire or Electrolux again. I will tell everyone who asks about my experience. Less than 3 years old. It does clean well, just not durable.

    Wasn™€™t sure about my new dishwasher at first. Was wet inside after running cycle. Called in Frigidaire repair (fast response) and they went over the controls with me. Working good right now, no wet walls or door. Dishes clean, I am happy.

    Faulty pump

    jbechtel97 4/3/2024

    We've bought over 20 Frigidiare appliances in the last 2 years. We had a pump replaced in one of the dishwashers last year under warranty. We've now had what seems to be a pump that's stopped working in a second dishwasher. We know service calls are available after the first year but we'd rather not spend what will likely be half the price of a new dishwasher to replace this dishwasher. Needless to say, we'll likely not be purchasing Frigidaire appliances in the future.

    It washes well and is very quiet. I do, however, wish that the silverware basket was located up front instead of in the back. Other than that it is perfect.

    Small appliance with full size performance.

    Awsmpa 3/16/2024

    We had never had a small dishwasher before and we weren't expecting much but this little guy works really well and for the family of two is a perfect size. If there is one criticism, I would suggest designers place the silverware basket towards the front of the dishwasher as it is hard to fill at the back of the lower rack.

    Great machine, set-up was a little confusing though.

    rachelkrueger11 3/5/2024

    The product itself has been working fantastic, though I will say the set-up was a little confusing when it comes to the wiring. The instructions say to hook black to black, etc. However, the cable on the machine is all solid gray, no colors whatsoever. It took my husband a bit of Reddit searching to find out what was correct.

    18" Stainless Dishwasher

    mj24 3/3/2024

    We are so excited to have a new dishwasher that works in our parkmodel kitchen. It holds a lot of dishes, silverware and after several uses, we find it does a great job of cleaning the dishes. We put mostly plates, cups, glasses, bowls and silverware in it, but pans work too if there is room. I just prefer to accumulate the other items and wash the pots and pans as we use them. That way the dishwasher is fully loaded when I use it. It is very quiet and the dishes come out sparkling clean.

    I™€™d like to be kind

    Epiphany Jane 2/15/2024

    But the installation kit was missing when we got the house back from the contractor. He lost it, never installed it. So the dishwasher is not bolted in place. Guess if Frigidaire can or will send me another installation kit? NO! They don™€™t make it anymore. They don™€™t exist anymore. No one can help me over there. They can™€™t find the parts!!!!! The dishwasher was bought in 2021 but never used. Now we™€™re back in the house and want to use it but we can™€™t bolt it in place because they don™€™t make the installation kit for this model anymore! It™€™s not that old! Never been used! What am I supposed to do? My new contractor is going to have to jury rig a contraption to bolt it in place. Thanks a lot for no support Frigidaire.

    Appliance package for flip house

    MattieM 2/8/2024

    We ordered an appliance package for a house we flipped to include a dishwasher, gas range, and refrigerator. The price was a few hundred dollars less than our local retailer and got free shipping with my employer code. The appliance came within 1 week and arrived at the exact time we were told the day prior that they would. The delivery was smooth, even with our contractor accepting the delivery. I would recommend this company for your appliance needs due to cost and ease of the entire process.

    18 inch Dishwasher

    MrMikie 1/13/2024

    My wife and I recently purchased a home for our retirement. We liked the house so much that we didn™€™t realize it did not have a dishwasher. We didn™€™t want to lose a full sized cabinet and searched the web for alternatives which is when we discovered 18 inch dishwashers, Frigidaire were the only company that had one available. I have never owned a Frigidaire appliance so I was a little hesitant, but purchased it because of need.I am so glad I did, after I removed the small cabinet next to our sink, installing the Frigidaire was a breeze. Great instructions and easy to reach components. We ran the dishwasher last night for the first time and we were surprised at how quiet and efficient it was. Perfect size for a retired couple!

    I have never had a built in dishwasher only a portable. After many years, I needed to update a very small kitchen and was advised to purchase an 18 inch dishwasher. By doing this I was allotted more space, etc and added storage. I did my research then went to a local appliance store and purchased the Frigidaire dishwasher. It may be compact but it serves my purpose well. It is extremely quiet and does an excellent job of cleaning the dishes. I love the stainless steel interior. I would highly recommend this appliance to someone who has limited space along with Frigidaire's reputation.

    Already Disappointed

    Sad Return Customer 12/30/2023

    Fails to remove tea stains. Dairy leaves a film on glassware. Spoke to chatbot which suggested hand wash those items. Seriously!?! The stainless steel interior dries after the door is ajar for several hours. Nice to have additional wash options but the sanitize is the only new feature I can imagine using. Labels on buttons are tiny.I chose Frigidaire because of durability of prior dishwasher which did a great job for 20 years of weekly use. Innovations have taken a giant step backwards. Dunning for additional warranty years is reinforces that this product is DEFINITELY lower quality.

    Purchased the 18™€ Frigidaire dishwasher for my 1br condo remodel. Installation was simple and it cleans just as it should. Stainless steel tub and exterior give it a modern look while keeping the noise level at a minimum. Very good buy with Black Friday specials. Good product!

    Trying to manage the change

    Aheis1130 11/23/2023

    I never accept change well so there are a couple of things I™€™m having a problem with. 1. The drawers are lower which are not as easy on my back. 2. The buttons on the front are not easily read™€"faint and at a level that makes it difficult to read. 3. Maybe too many choices of how long and what each length will do. But the actual function of cleaning the dishes is just fine. And it is very quiet. Sometimes I forget it™€™s on.

    18" Dishwater

    Walkadog 10/27/2023

    I have installed quite a few dishwasher in my time but this by far was one of the hardest installs I have ever done. Maybe its the fact that it was a 18" and this is the first install I have done with one. Anyway it seems to work well as far as iI can tell. However I have a slow leak at the water connection because I cant get my 90 degree connection to tighten more because it hits the side of the machine. I know that would stop the leak if I could tighten a little more. So design on your water inlet could have been better. Have taken the dishwasher out 3 times to tighten that and put more teflon tape on it. It still slowly leaks and im hoping that it will finally quit with some mineral build up.
