    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.

    Awesome compact dishwasher!

    dmardell 1/20/2024

    We are in a park model, so don't have much room. This 18" built-in dishwasher is perfect. Amazing how many dishes fit in it! The dishwasher cleans well and the dishes dry spot free. If you're on the fence about buying one.......do it!!!!

    18" Frigidaire Dishwasher

    AliceO46 1/6/2024

    Better than I hoped for space and it cleans so well.I got this model to save space in my small kitchen. It works well for me as I do 2-3 loads per week but also handled Christmas Day for 4. The racks are able to fit various size dishes and flatware.Dishes dry well with no spots.

    Compact 18" Model

    Compact User 12/10/2023

    The dishwasher works very well, and despite it's small size holds an amazing amount of dishes. Run time seems longer than a regular size, but this is not an issue. Also if the unit is not full of dirty dishes, there is no need to completely fill the soap dispenser, as the dishes although clean, will have a film of soap still attached. I'm using a name Brand soap, starts with a C. and the same brand of rinse aid. Very happy so far, I don't use it daily, but at least 4 times a week with no issues. Mostly it is me getting used to using it

    Jesslove 10/2/2023

    I live in a 12 unit, vintage, apartment building and our landlord bought us all one. It™€™s been 6 years and all of them are still going strong. Super small for apartment living. Quiet & efficient. I didn™€™t think I would ever need it living in a single unit but now I use it all the time.

    The dishwasher has performed well since we installed it. Compared to its predecessor, it is very quiet! It was fairly easy to install and the instructions, along with YouTube, were quite helpful.

    Frigidaire 18™€ Built-In Dishwasher

    mary964 8/23/2023

    This dishwasher is a perfect fit for our small kitchen. It is quiet and dishes are sparkling clean. The racks are positioned well for plates and glassware but not for larger items. The flatware container is positioned in the back of the bottom rack which has taken some getting used to. Overall I am satisfied with this dishwasher.

    Unfinished looking

    CBS123 7/25/2023

    Dishwasher seems to work, but it looks awful. It is white, but there was no white plate to cover the bottom, which is unfinished (screws showing) and black, and shows a bit of the tub besides. Ruins the look of the white kitchen. Racks are awkward.

    Frigidaire 18" dishwasher

    Sandy 52 6/26/2023

    I really like my new dishwasher. It's very quiet when running. The option selection buttons are clear and plentiful. I can get a LOT of dishes, glassware and utensils in the dishwasher and my glassware came out sparkling. I particularly liked the 'heated dry" option. Many dishwashers don't have this feature. I think it's important to decrease spotting. All in all, a great purchase. Thanks, Frigidaire!

    Frigidaire 18 ™€œ DW

    Small house owner 7 3/22/2023

    We haven™€™t been using it very long, but it seems to do a good job on cleaning rinsed dishes. I did not think muchof the ™€œegg crate™€ they provided as a base. It made it hard to level and the channels to the utility connection points did not allow for much flexibility.

    Frigidaire 18" Dishwasher

    John Whitbread 3/22/2023

    I am new to condo living and I am pleased with the dishwasher. I have stayed in places where the smaller dishwashers were very unfriendly but, this one is not. I am use to a regular sized dishwasher but this one is easier to load compared to other 18 inch washers. It really does an excellent job in cleaning the dishes. I was very impressed with this.

    The init I'm reviewing is my 2nd unit in 6mths. 1st unit quit working in 5 weeks. 2 repairmen in, discovered it was dented on top of tub under the insulation blanket. Returned it, bought this unit. Was delivered, straight out of box, no damage to box, but the dishwasher had a dent on back of tub & dent on door. I decided to keep it. My husband installed it & I've ran 2 loads. So far, so good! Keeping my fingers crossed ??

    The Frigidaire - 18" Built-In Dishwasher is compact for small apartment. No need to wait a week to accumulate enough dirty dishes to make it worthwhile to run. I can run it often and not worry about wasting the space in a bigger washer. And it cleans well and quiet. I just luv it for what I need.

    18™€ dishwasher

    Gem75659 12/27/2022

    I just recently replaced a 10 year old Frigidaire 18™€ Dishwasher with a new one. It runs much quieter than the old one, and the energy saver mode cleans the dishes very well and everything is dry when the cycle is complete. The set-up has changed a bit, but it holds a lot of dishes. The utensil holder has been improved to hold more cutlery. Would recommend this appliance.

    Good basics, high price

    McGilicuhdy 12/5/2022

    We needed less capacity since our children are all grown so we chose to put in the smaller, 18", dishwasher. We had no idea smaller would be more expensive than the full size dishwasher. The appearance is good and the basics work well. We get best results when we rinse all the dishes first and don't include pots and pans.

    For a compact dishwasher...

    BritnieRN 12/4/2022

    This little thing fits more than expected and washes well. It is certainly an upgrade from no dishwasher at all. Only draw back is that the regular wash cycle is over two hours long...not sure what's average, but that seems long. We usually just run overnight so it doesn't bother us too much.
