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.

Super Quiet easy install

Jwittenberg 7/31/2020

We bought this a month ago to replace our old one of 30 years. This unit is so quiet and really cleans the dishes well. So nice to not hear the dishwasher running.The install was very easy with very straight forward directions

Nanci1230 7/28/2020

Purchased in Jan and had it installed. It stopped working in May. Got the part after eight weeks and over an hour on the phone. Part came and was installed. And it still isn™€™t working! Have repair person coming on Monday. Have owned it for seven months and it has worked for four months. Very disappointed.

sump leak within 3 months

Didn't even make it 3 months, and frigidaire warranty is unreliable. I've had to reduce rent for my tenants due to the run around through this warranty. Don't buy this, or frigidaire at all.

Decent dishwasher

TedTheDIYer 7/7/2020

Pros: stainless steel interior. Quieter than the old dishwasher. Washes dishes.Cons: The drain outlet is on the front which meant I had to replace the water line with a longer one (the old dishwasher drain outlet was on the bottom). The leveling feet are plastic not steel. The entire bottom of the dishwasher was covered with a plastic cover (probably a sound deadener) and would likely take longer to disassemble for repair. They also have the inlet hole for the wire strain relief into the electrical box so close to the dishwasher bottom that you have to install the wire in the relief, then clamp it down, then turn the relief backwards so the screw heads are facing the bottom before inserting it into the electrical box hole.Yeah I know people buy these things for the looks and ease of use but is it really necessary to shaft the service guy who is installing the thing with oddball placements? Some of us install our own appliances and we can see what you think you are hiding. Next time put the water inlet in the BACK. And the strain relief hole placement is just a dumb millennial designer who designed the dishwasher but has never held a screwdriver in their life!!! I suppose I should be thankful they got the strain relief hole the right size!!

Fits in a small space, does the trick!

Sarah22 7/6/2020

We bought this to fit within an 18" cabinet space, and it fits perfectly. I bought it because it was the only one at this price point that had a drying feature, whereas dishwashers of the same size at this price point from the other brands did not seem to have heat drying. The drying feature works rather well, but you will still find some water resting on top of the glasses, etc. I think this is rather normal, in my experience anyway, and we just leave the dishwasher open for a bit before unloading to let them air out.The instructions say that it needs at least 2" clearance from the wall, but ours is installed right against the wall (about 1/8" clearance) and it opens just fine.

Had nothing but issues with the unit.

JChesser26 6/1/2020

I™€™ve had to have it replaced once already, we purchased in January, then had issues with the draining, been waiting on parts for that since for a month and a half. When it was running it ran great. But it has been a nightmare. We™€™ve only been able to use it for 1 1/2 months out of the 5 months we™€™ve had it. It looks nice, when the thing works it works great, but it hasn™€™t been running for us long enough to actually give a fair review of how well it runs regularly bc since we™€™ve had it, its been broken longer than in service.

Looks nice and cleans great!

Kate R 5/30/2020

I bought this as an addition to a kitchen remodel. We moved into a fixer upper that didn't have a dishwasher. I didn't want to lose a bunch of cabinet space but I also needed a dishwasher! I was so pleased to find out they made them smaller than the standard so we only had to cut out one cabinet. The dishwasher holds a lot more than its size might suggest. It cleans incredibly well and fast. It is fairly quietly as well. The sleek stainless steel looks beautiful with my other stainless steel appliances. I am pleased with this purchase.

Do NOT Buy This Dishwasher

andymc 4/4/2020

I bought this 10 weeks ago and still don't have a fully-functioning dishwasher. First one leaked right away, so I got a service appointment. Tech couldn't fix it, tried to order a part. Parts were not available, so Frigidaire sent out a whole new DW. New DW leaks in the same spot. Got another service appointment, tech rigged it up with some tape and parts from a different DW. The leak is mostly gone, but now the bottom rack won't slide in and out without catching. (Tech also damaged the front panel in the process, so we had to have another appointment to repair that.) Now I'm waiting on a 4th service appointment, which I'm hoping will be the last hoop I have to jump through to get my money back and be rid of this piece of garbage.When it's not leaking, it does a terrible job of washing dishes. I've taken to using the heaviest cycle, and still end up re-washing a few dishes from each load.Through it all, I will say that Frigidaire's customer service team has been friendly and helpful (once you get past that awful automated system). Unfortunately, friendliness can't fix this lemon.

Never worked from the beginning

AngryLady 4/1/2020

A contractor installed this nice looking dishwasher in my updated kitchen, but it never worked. I figured out myself that a super flimsy piece on the side of the device called the ™€œduct assembly™€ part (part#5304519245) broke off during installation and is not available for replacement. It took many, many calls and many visits by the authorized agent to arrive at this conclusion, by which time the warranty was expired. Everyone was shrugging their shoulders, ™€œNothing we can do, sorry.™€ So no idea whether or not this is a good dishwasher or not since it has never once worked. Now I need a new one, any recommendations?? Will be steering clear of this brand for my next go around.

Works Great, couple of items to note if buying

emrecio 4/1/2020

Works as advertised. Warning, the only thing we had problems with was that the intake for hotwater and electricity is on the front. So you need to snake the cables from the back all the way to the front, and if you don't have enough slack (we didn't) it's going to be a headache to splice stuff together. Old one was fed from the back. Also another warning: the tube for the outlet to drain is NOT detachable from the back. You have to use the tube that is permanently affixed.

SzqH 3/29/2020

Excellent quality cleans fantastic. However the lower dish rack tongs are too close and if plates have a ledge won™€™t fit. So I need new plates with straight edges. Really any plate should fit, it did in my other 18™€ dishwasher. Other than It is very high quality and has sanitization cycles.

Over the years I have lamented that a dishwasher wouldn't fit into my small kitchen, that is until I saw the Frigidaire smaller-than-standard model in a friend's kitchen. I am now delighted that it fits perfectly into a corner of my counter space. I can also tell that it washes my china with great care. As I said above, I love it!

So So

dishwasher maven 2/29/2020

I bought this dishwasher about a month ago. I had to order it without seeing it in the store. I'm not crazy about what it looks like and I had another Frigidaire dishwasher that was the same size, but this one holds less. I do like that it has something that holds down light plastic on the top shelf that can get pushed up when water hits it and it cleans dishes pretty well.
