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.

Very Quiet

Stephen in Maine 10/2/2020

Although our household is only two, we wanted a small dishwasher in our new kitchen for occasional entertaining. This dishwasher works well for that purpose and accommodated cabinetry next to it that's more functional than a 24 inch dishwasher would have allowed. the wash cycle is longer than our old one, but it is VERY quiet and not annoying in any way. We are both satisfied and would recommend it to others.

ethelmae 8/27/2020

I only had room for an 18 inch dishwasher in my cabinet space. It fit perfectly. It is very quiet and cleans just like a bigger model. My dishes are dry when I take them out. I just love my it.

emn306 8/6/2020

I have only had my dishwasher about a week. It works great. Cleans and dries the dishes and is so quiet. I love it. My small kitchen wouldn't hold a full size one so I got this one instead. It works just like a larger one and really holds a lot.

Perfectly Sized

Nosalla 6/3/2020

I have had small dishwashers and this washer is perfect in many ways for the size and shape of our kitchen. It is small, flat profile, cleans very well, and is SILENT! The unit has such a quiet motor that a few times I didn't even know it was on when I was in an adjacent room.

Installation revision

dx2krudop 5/9/2020

Runs very quietly. Extended run time over Frigidaire replaced. Evidently this unit is supposed to have the door extend about one and one-half inches from cabinet front. We wanted the door to be flush with the cabinet front so we made the revision shown in the pictures.

3rd time is a charm!

AmyB090909 4/24/2020

Bought this in December of 2019, it never worked. Thankfully I bought the warranty plan and it was also under the manufacturer's warranty. Had to buy another one then wait to get reimbursed :(-terrible way to execute a warranty plan. When the second one arrived it was dented. Finally, when the 3rd one arrived, it worked. Works well, but spending 3 month ironing it all out was awful!

Maggie Mae 69 4/23/2020

This washer is everything I hoped it would be and more! It was installed into our park model that has a tiny kitchen. The washer fit perfectly and holds a lot of dishes. The dishes come out clean and spotless.

Does a great job for its size!

Fabster 4/18/2020

We did an upgrade from pretty old dishwasher and the difference definitively shows. Leaves dishes sparking clean and dried even without the heat option turned on. Only con is that it seems to use too much resources on the 1-hour + modes. Also, PRO TIP: Use half of a tablet. It's enough for this washer.

Small, but seems efficient...

Katrynova 4/6/2020

I have recently moved back into my condo 6 months after lightning hit. It takes a bit of time getting used to less space than I had with my standard sized one. However, it seems to be working well. I'm curious why there is a setting for 2.5 hour cycle [think that is right] that showed up at first usage. Needless to say, I found the 1 hr cycle quickly enough!

Sandra49 3/28/2020

Bought this over a month ago....LOVE IT! First I had purchased a DANBY dishwasher - DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!! Came dented, then heater element went out and features are difficult to understand (French Canadian). Returned it and bought my Frigidaire - washes perfect and is quiet. Highly recommend!!

Scotty 45 3/7/2020

For an 18' builtin dishwasher, there is plenty of room for a place setting for 12. The stainless steel interior keeps clean and the eating utensil rack is very spacious.

replacement for older Frigidaire

jdw1 3/2/2020

I bought this after the old one (2006 vintage) died just after Christmas. My only complaint in the buying process is that it cost more than the equivalent 24" models. How come the smaller one costs more??? The biggest problem is that it doesn't dry dishes well. After running the dishes are still damp and there is water on the door and sides of the dishwasher. I am using rinse aid and heated dry per the instructions.

Great little dishwasher

Lotoole 2/29/2020

I am very pleased with this dishwasher. It is quiet, reliable and items s come out sparkling clean. Even items that I thought had permanent stains, came out looking like new. It's a smaller model and it fits into my small country home perfectly. I've been running it every day since it was installed and never had any problem. I recommend this dishwasher to anyone wanting a reliable and space efficient product.

HappyDad33 1/30/2020

With a small kitchen, we needed something compact, quiet, and that could get the job done. This delivers on every setting! With a six member family, we are grateful for every dish we DON™€™T have to hand wash. Our 18™€ Frigidaire Dishwasher is our new best friend.

Great dishwasher

Albie 1/24/2020

The dishwasher finally arrived. I ordered it Dec 9 and it arrived Dec 16 because it is a "special order" due to being smaller. A self install is relatively easy, BUT it would have helped if I was told I needed an installation kit! More delay. A suggestion to the manufacturing process: Why don't you include the brass elbow required already installed since it is a required piece in order to connect to the water supply. I already had a braided water line because I was replacing my older one, and it was impossible to find just the brass elbow without buying a "kit" with a new water line.The process was not customer friendly, but the dishwasher is a great machine, quiet and easy to use and dishes come out sparkling.

2 units in 6 months both BAD

Darin1215 12/29/2019

I've had two units in 6 months both showed error codes within 2 wash cycles. wasted time with Frigidaire service contractors and still don't have a dishwasher that works! Old Frigidaire unit that this model replaced ran flawlessly for 10 years. Won't buy Frigidaire again.

Wes28 12/28/2019

I bought this a month ago, and overall I'm happy. Cleans well, relatively quiet, some nice options. However, I don't like the configuration of the upper rack, which has no easy way to secure wine glasses, etc.

I installed this dishwasher about a month ago, and we are pleased with it.You must add the "rinse-aid" to ensure the dishes dry thoroughly. Without it, lots of water left inside.Very quiet, well made. Control panel is hard to see, due to small size of options.
