Leaking on first use

By condo

from Undisclosed

Comments about Frigidaire Built-In Dishwasher:

The drain pan gasket was not properly seated and the first time the unit was used water came pouring out. Was a quick fix from a frigidaire repairman, but disappointing that it was leaking on first use.


Exterior rust on "stainless" front panel

By SHoweth

from San Francisco

Comments about Frigidaire Built-In Dishwasher:

Buyer beware. The stainless steel front panel has rust spots in just over a year. The warrantee expires after 1 year, which doesn't matter anyways since the warrantee says it doesn't cover rust on the interior or exterior of the unit. I would like to add photos however that feature does not seem to be working. Hopefully it's not because of my low star rating.

Very decent little dishwasher

By Seattle Sarah

from Seattle, WA, United States

Comments about Frigidaire Built-In Dishwasher:

This is better than most of my previous full-size dishwashers but not all. To get well-timed dishes clean, I must run Normal wash. It holds more than I expected, when dishes are carefully loaded. I usually run the dishwasher at bedtime, and I don't use the dry cycle, usually, to save electricity. Propping the door open before work the next day leaves me clean, dry dishes when I return home. I wish it were a little more powerful AND a bit quieter. It's not bad, though. From my research, this is the best small dishwasher on the market.

Comments about Frigidaire Built-In Dishwasher:

Wanted small dishwasher for a park model. Added counter space onto kitchen/living room area also added additional insulation around inside of cabinet for dishwasher as it was close to TV in living room. Was really surprised how quiet this machine is. We can watch TV and use the dishwasher without any problems. My wife removed the top of the silverware holder so our silverware would go into it, very easy to remove. Took advice from some one else who suggested running the hot water before starting dishwasher. Had to remember to do this. We do have a little water which sits atop of our cups because we don't tip them on the top rack which would solve this. Can wash some pots and pans but found if they have anything burnt on them need to wash by hand. Please note: we use the normal wash cycle and have not tried the pot n pan cycle for washing which might do a better job on the pots and pans. One thing we did learn is when closing the door to watch where you place your fingers because it is easy to hit a button to start a cycle. We are not sorry for buying this machine. Would recommend it to anyone who has a small place.


Quiet and performs well

By Ron79

from Streetsboro, OH, United States

Comments about Frigidaire Built-In Dishwasher:

I got this dishwasher in April of 2016, so far no complaints at all. From the time I installed it, this thing runs like a champ. I got this because of the low amp draw, and did a lot of research on other dishwashers. This is a quiet dishwasher, has multiple wash cycles. For a quick hour or so wash, the energy saver wash cycles is great for not so dirty dishes. It has a hi-temp wash for the tough dishes to wash. Being an 18" it is smaller than a 24" obviously but it is perfect for my family. I would recommend this product, easy install as well.
