FFBD1821MB is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good choice if you need 18'' cleans dishes well. placement of silverware basket could be better or even a little smaller for needs. wish i had a 24'' cabinet i could remove as you can get a 24'' unit with the same features for a lot less money or higher end model for the same price. has given me over 3 years of daily use trouble free. relatively quiet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A sorry excuse for a dishwasher I had a Frigidaire 18" dishwasher for 13 years, it was a great machine. Which is why I bought another one. Boy, was I duped. The new one is Tiny inside, holds about 1/3 the dishes the old one did. Has poorly designed baskets, with big holes for glasses to fall thru if you put them in the bottom rack. Has a very long cycle compared to the old machine, and cleans about half as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built Very efficient. I rinse all dishes before placing them in dw to avoid larger food particles from recirculation. Dishwasher seems shorter than previous one we owned since I had to extend the bottom panel full length. Also side trim (plastic) is to short and doesn't conceal the sides well between door and counter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry Excuse for a Dishwasher Since my original review did not make it to the list of reviews I will try again. I had an 18 inch Frigidaire dishwasher for 13 years, It was a great machine. When it Died I went out searching for a replacement. I bought one of these. The baskets are much smaller, I can only get about a third of the dishes in compared to my older model. The wholes in the lower basket are so big that you cannot put glasses down there if the top is full. Also, what is with the run time. A normal wash cycle takes twice as long as my old machine and doesn't clean or dry a well. I guess this is what we have to live with however. Looked at about a dozen different makes, they all have the same baskets. I would say this machine is good to fill the hole in my kitchen cabinet until spring when I can fix my old one and put it back in. the new one will look great on the curb waiting for the trash man!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Neat. So.o.o quiet!!!! My Neice convinced me to buy one in 2004 during kitchen remodel. Both of ours were replaced within 3 months of one another; hers before T’giving. Same model again bought at different locations. First couple weeks use, I kept checking it to make sure it was working cuz I couldn’t hear it!!! Still learning most efficient stacking methods. I’m very satisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry excuse for a Dishwasher Just trying to correct a spelling error. In my review yesterday the word tube should be tub. This is my second attempt to write this, website locked up last time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs Improvement It would be nice if it cleaned the dishes better, with the new dishwashers you aren't supposed to have to rinse off the dishes. With this one I have to rinse even though I use the best pods available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smaller than my old frigidaire Bought online. Upon installation we found a cracked part on the motor. Was able to repair with marine expoxy but don’t know how long it will last. Buying a replacement part is impossible because none of the parts match the manual...poor design. Smaller than 12yr old frigidaire, a challenge to fit everything.Not quiet. It does , however , clean dishes and glassware beautifully. Would not have bought if I had seen it beforehand because it is seriously smaller than my old one. Utensils rack is a joke. I kept the old one from prior model. Not worth the money.
