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.

Exactly Right

VJ2021 11/12/2021

After researching available 18" dishwashers, I went with the Frigidare. So far, and it has only been about a month, it has met my expectations. The black model looks great; it cleans well; it fits the small space that I have. The GE it replaced was over 10 years old and no problems until this year; that is what I hope for with this Frigidare. BTW I believe the Frigidare cleans better than the previous dishwasher when it, too, was new. Rated 4 stars for now because we haven't used it long enough to give it 5 star rating.

Game Saver

rgrove86 10/3/2021

As our 20 year-old dishwasher died, we search franticly for a new dishwasher. We found the reviews very favorable for this model. The modern design fits our kitchen perfectly. Operation of the Frigidaire was intuitive. All controls were well marked. The storage for dishes, cups and utensils were more than adequate. It is very quite which was a very nice difference than our old dishwasher. We have other Frigidaire appliances and they never have failed us. Would recommend this everyone.

Great machine!

Wrath 9/23/2021

There™€™s only two people in the house so a big washing machine would never have been filled. This little guy is just perfect, and I love all the settings that are offered. Low energy, quick wash, delicate, etc. My dishes are perfectly clean and don™€™t require you to scrub them over the sink first.

Mini DV 8/1/2021

I bought this about 3 weeks ago, and it has been working wonderfully. despite it's compact size at 18", the space is more than enough for a small family of 3. The one touch buttons makes it easy to use. and it's not loud at all. We love this product!

well-built, compact dishwasher

dennis2 3/23/2021

We preferred this dishwasher because it was one of the few 18" models with a steam-dry option. The dishwasher provides a variety of settings, and has modern features like soil level detection, load detection, etc. It is not too loud and it cleans very well. It can fit a surprising number of dishes, and overall it looks and feels very well-built. It fits a surprising number of dishes for an 18" dishwasher, but do not expect to fit large pots in it. Sometimes, some of the dishes come out a bit wet even after the steam dry cycle, but this is definitely better than any condensation-dry option. Perhaps my water is hard and needs some rinsing agent. Good product overall.

Simple to run, washes and dries well.

HandyD 3/10/2021

We've only had this unit installed and running for a couple of weeks, but this has been long enough to see that works well- easy to load (adjustable height top rack is a great feature), holds a lot for an 18 inch unit, and washing/drying performance is very good. You do have to be mindful to not put items that have a small opening and a tall inside in the four corners of the top rack- these don't get enough wash water projected into them by the upper washer arm. We put bowls and other shallow items in the corners, and it does great with these. The door is a bit flimsy, but it shuts securely. Installation was very easy except for the water line hook-up. The T fitting tightened facing in a bad direction, making it very difficult to line up the water line-- there was interference with the plastic casing of the internals of the dishwasher.

Doesn't work. Lack of customer support.

WM20 12/26/2020

Bought this over a month ago. After install I ran a cycle just to make sure it ran and it stopped within 5 minutes. It won't even power up. Called for warranty repair and lengthy hold times. First time service was to come they cancelled and said they would come next week. The dishwasher rarely will even power on as I check it daily. The day before service was to come it turned on and would power up when the service guy was here so they say nothing is wrong with it. I run a rinse cycle later that day to confirm it will work then load up dishes and plan to wash. It runs a few minutes then quits and won't power up. I can't get thru to customer service and have called numerous times with hold times over an hour. At this point I want a new unit or just give me my money back and I'll shop elsewhere. Customer service lacking.

Happy dish washer 10/16/2020

Our old dishwasher died slowly and time of death was called July 16, 2020. We contacted a local appliance dealer to purchase a new one. We originally chose a competitor's product, but because of the COVID pandemic, the company's supply chain was disrupted. We decided to choose your product instead of waiting a month for the other product. I can't say the other company's product is worse or better, but I can say your product was reviewed more favorably. That said, thus far your product has been great. I like being able to set the water temperature, the unit is super quiet, and the dishes come out nice and clean. My only complaint after a couple of months is the layout of the upper rack, which is smaller and with a somewhat awkward configuration compared to our older unit. We're adjusting, however, and we're glad we chose your product. Overall, I'll give the unit a four because of the awkward upper rack. If not for that issue, I'd give your product a five-star rating.

Kc4444 9/21/2020

We never had a dishwasher before since our kitchen area is small. But the 18" was just the right size. We have only had it a month and has worked great. There are times when the noise is a little distracting, but we have learned to run it at night so we do not heard it at all.

Good Small Size Washer

CSeanSpi 9/8/2020

We bought this dishwasher recently and so far it has performed as expected. I would note that the prongs are designed and laid out in a tight configuration so you are somewhat limited in how to place dishes inside the washer. But I think this was done to try to accommodate more place settings (assuming they fit into the compact spacing).

ThisOneGuy 8/27/2020

Install was not the easiest, plus it was almost too short for the opening (standard size cabinets). Had the dishwasher for just over a month and it stopped working mid cycle. It™€™s been over two weeks and still waiting on the parts to fix it. At least it™€™s under warranty... this time. Frigidaire is/was a great brand, starting to wonder if that™€™s no longer the case.

Great Dishwasher for the Money

pzero24 8/4/2020

I have had my Fridgidaire dishwasher for a few weeks now, and I am very happy with it so far. From installation to usage, it hasn't given me any problems that I didn't cause myself. The cabinet is understandably smaller as it is a compact model.Using the dishwasher is very simple. I typically do not wash any pots or pans, so the 1-hour wash setting gets my dishes perfectly clean and takes much less time. I do find that most of the other settings are not really relevant to me personally, but it's good that they have those options for those that need them.My only issue with this dishwasher is the design of the dish rack. The pins are way too close together, which makes putting bowls into take much more space than is necessary. There was definitely more priority given to plates than to bowls in how it was set up, but my family uses a lot of bowls. I personally wished the rack had a removable insert that took away some of the pins.
