    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.

    My little dishwasher

    JJan78 7/26/2022

    We recently did a kitchen refacing and since I never had a dishwasher due to space issue we decided to purchase the 18™€ one. It fits perfectly, cleans like a charm and I only lost a small cupboard. It™€™s perfect for my husband and I. Wish I™€™d gotten one sooner.

    Extra quiet and super efficient

    Mr_Jigglesworth 7/16/2022

    We just bought an old house which did not have a Dishwasher. After measurements, one side of our cabinets is 18" and the other side "without water" is 24".As we are just a husband and wife without kids, the 18" washer was perfect. As a matter of fact in our last home we had a full size washer, but took a long time to fill it. This little guy fits our needs better, uses less water, and is super quiet. My dogs appreciate it possibly more than I do.

    Apartment size Dishwasher

    Excellent machine for the price. We purchased from an appliance warehouse for less than retail value. I installed myself and instructions were competent. Machine is quiet for the most part. Certainly a great product for our situation. Dishes are cleaned well, with few watermarks.

    We got a lemon

    Sissy13 4/14/2022

    Our dishwasher was a lemon from the start. It left tons of water in the bottom after the first time running it. We tried it again the next morning and it started pouring water all over the floor! We tried pushing the cancel button and it did nothing?! We opened the door to stop it...it kept running!! AND dumping water on the floor! We had to shut it off by turning it off at the breaker. The place we bought it is getting us another one, but it will be another 2-3 weeks before we have a dishwasher. A total of 5 weeks with no dishwasher. I am really tired of doing dishes by hand.

    Holds a lot

    Dishwasher fan 3/29/2022

    This dishwasher holds a lot. Washes well. The plate tines are a bit close together, so they only work with flat plates. The door tries to close by itself when fully open, so I have to slide the bottom tray out to keep the door down while loading. I'm glad I replaced the old dishwasher.

    SmilinBob31 2/22/2022

    We were going to select another brand but it wasn't available for four months. Far too long to be without a dishwasher. Fridgiaire was ready in just a few weeks, The DW is very quiet and works quite well. The previous DW lasted 20 years, Hoping this will go as long.

    Prefer the one I bought in 2004

    LTC P 2/15/2022

    I don™€™t like this dishwasher as much as I did the Frigidaire I bought in 2004. It™€™s much quieter and does a good job but I do not like the trays.! The slots are too close together and some of the bigger dishes don™€™t fit. I removed the silverware container to make space for bigger items. The older trays were better suited to my dishes etc.! Also the dishes were coming out wet and had to be dried even on high heat/heat dry. Never happened with the other one. Adding rinse aid helped clear that up. I just wish the trays had wider slots!

    Excellent Dishwasher

    Cate38 1/31/2022

    In remodeling my kitchen, adding a dishwasher was a must. Due to the size of the kitchen, the only option was an 18" apt. sized dishwasher. This machine packs a powerful punch and works just as well as a standard sized dishwasher, with just as many cleaning options/functions.

    Little Dishwasher, BIG Performance!!

    Mrs Schnimpson 1/3/2022

    This little dishwasher is delivering all I could have asked for! I have very limited space, and I have had a different brand 18" dishwasher before that left me doing the dishes by hand afterwards. I decided to give it one more chance, so I opted for the Frigidaire. What great results! Cleans like a champ and runs quiet!! Very pleased with this purchase!

    Defective

    Michael NYC 10/6/2021

    After installation, I ran the rinse cycle to test it. It ran fine and completed the cycle. 15 minutes later, an i4 error message appeared on the digital readout. The plumber spent 5 hours the next day trying to find a leak or whatever caused the error message, to no avail. It doesn't work. To add insult to injury, Frigidaire's contractor; G&G Appliance repair, has thus far cancelled my appointment twice and was a no show/no call after that. When I tried to reschedule a 4th time, instead of honoring their missed appointment, they re-scheduled me for 7 days later stating they were "booked all week." What a mistake it was to buy this thing. My rank is zero stars. Good luck.

    This unit replaces my 17-year-old Frigidaire 18" DW. I loved it so. It was a birthday present from my husband. It finally gave out. It is no where near my birthday, but this unit is still like a gift. It is quite and efficient. Nice to modernize. I am still getting used to the door latch and removable silverware rack, but I've got to modernize too! Thanks. :)

    melbee72 4/20/2021

    While the top rack is oddly 'laid out', this DW fits a lot and I like it overall. I bought it 2 months ago, and so far so good! I mostly use the eco-wash setting, and it does a really good job - and I don't typically pre-rinse. Silly complaint, but I wish the utensil basket wasn't so far back - hard to get to when already loaded and you wanna add a last minute spoon ;) But overall, it's a good little addition to kitchen - easy to use and cute :)

    Great compact dishwasher for a tight space and small household

    Ryan625 4/13/2021

    After 8 years of hand washing I was ready to have a dishwasher but when I purchased my first home there was no space already. This compact dishwasher fit perfectly in a cabinet, after a little remodel. After removing the door of the existing cabinet, two shelves, and the kickplate, the install was easy. The instructions are straightforward and walk you through every step if you have an existing opening. I'm happy with the operation of the dishwasher as it's fairly quiet and easy to use. My only issue is in drying. Even with the heated-dry setting the dishes are not 100% ready to put away after a cycle. This is definitely not something to deter me from recommending this dishwasher to anyone in a 1-2 person household.

    Bought this about a month ago. Was a little nervous if this would be noisy or not... so quiet! LOVE! This may be an 18 incher but does such a great job. Actually holds quite a bit, especially if you load it the way they recommend. I am very happy with my purchase.

    The features

    JPorter 2/16/2021

    I bought this dishwasher about a month ago and installed myself. There wasn't a dishwasher in the kitchen before, and the instructions were very easy to understand for installation. There's not just one feature to start with very quiet, the different wash times are awesome. If it's not full just set it to 1 hr wash. If it's full run heavy wash, 5 total differant wash cycles. Its was worth the money no doubt.
