Reviews

18" Built-In Dishwasher is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 302.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoying my new dishwasher My kitchen is pretty small, and unless I went with a major remodel, I had to stick to an 18" dishwasher if I wanted to have one installed. I've been using this model for a few weeks, and really like it. It's surprisingly quiet--my plumber remarked that many dishwashers have only a spray-on layer of sound insulation, while the Frigidaire is wrapped with actual padded insulation. My dishes are clean, and the stainless steel interior always looks good. I need to juggle a bit if I wash a number of large bowls, but other than that I have not had an issue with loading. This dishwasher is probably too small for a family of three or more, but it's perfect for a singleton or a couple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and performs well 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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very decent little 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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet - Gets dishes clean ! Installation was simple; dropped right in where the old 18" unit was, with only a couple minor tweaks to the feet levelers - no carpentry required ! The Frigidaire is MUCH quieter than the "Brand K" unit it replaced. I kind of miss the old-school analog rotary timer dial at times - you can't tell what part of the cycle the machine's in; adding a dish mid-cycle is a crapshoot - might be before the main wash (great !), or in the middle of the final rinse (not so great...) It's very frugal with water, and the delay start is a nice feature if you're headed for the shower. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely quiet dishwasher for our motorhome We have had this dishwasher for 7 months and are amazed at how quiet it is. I sit next to it in our motorhome (which is why we bought the 18" size) and if we have a fan running, I don't hear it. We started having issues with glassware and silverware being cloudy a month ago. Even the inside walls became cloudy. We used a vinegar wash cycle to clean the walls. We tracked down the problem to the detergent pods (Cascade) we were using. We switched to FINISH detergent pods, use the High temp cycle and everything is coming out sparkling now. The installation looks very good in our motorhome (see photo) that we live in so the low noise level is very important to us. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice compact dishwasher We've only had this about a week but like it so far. We have an older house so we needed a compact dishwasher. There are just the two of us so we don't have a lot of dishes so it works out great for us. Bigger casserole dishes don't fit with other dishes in there but I don't wash my pots and pans in the dishwasher anyway. I thought I read complaints about no heated drying when we were looking but this does have it and it works fine. It also cleans well. I use either the light wash or the economy one. You also have the option to use the heated dry with the economy one. Overall I think this was a great purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cleans dishes, doesn't dry like I thought it would I installed this unit about 3 weeks ago, and it cleans well. I am pretty unsatisfied with the drying on this unit. I use rinse aid, hi-temp wash, and the heated dry, and the inside of the unit still has a good amount of water in the tub and a lot of condensation on the sides/ceiling. I'm not sure if this is normal, or if my expectations are out of whack, but I tend to leave the door open after the cycle for it dry out inside the dishwasher. The dishes, for the most part, are dry, so I think I may just be expecting more water to evaporate than what's reasonable ... but, man, it's pretty wet in there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Unit We moved here earlier this year and did a kitchen upgrade. We wanted a better dishwasher then the one we had in our last house. Due to space, we chose this 18" model. It is a nice unit, with a stainless steel inside and quality features. It is much more quiet than the last one too. The only drawback is the size. Not only is it narrower than a standard dishwasher, it is shorter as well. I had to turn adjustment screws almost all the way out to position it under the countertop. The silverware rack is a bit cumbersome to use, but works.
