Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what its supposed to Bought this dishwasher a few months back and it works exactly as it should. It was pretty easy to install myself as a replacement to an outdated one. Works well and is actually quite spacious and competent for its size. Much quieter than my old model that was likely 10-15 years older. Only gripe would be about availability and price. I was able to get $200 off at a local appliance retailer but still felt burned having to pay nearly double for this smaller dishwasher than I would have for a larger one with very similar look at features. Satisfied with purchase and would recommend however. Only ding is the pricing structure for smaller 18" dishwashers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silverware basket a real problem! I bought this 18 inch dishwasher in November 2017 and I am generally pleased with it. The dishes come out clean and spotless. However, the silverware basket is a real problem. The silverware needs to be placed in slotted spaces and whether or not your silverware fits in these slots depends entirely on the style of the silverware. Unfortunately, my silverware set does not and so I am desperately trying to find a different basket from any other dishwasher. If I cannot, I will need to buy an entirely new stainless steel silverware set in order to be able to use the basket that comes with this Frigidaire model and I think there must be several others who have or will have the same problem. I find this such a problem and extra expense that I cannot recommend this dishwasher until Frigidaire solves this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient little unit We’ve had it about a month, very quiet, lots of wash options and holds a variety of sized dishes and glasses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small size Big features Purchased this dishwasher a month ago to replace my old leaky dishwasher. Old one had one wash bar under the two racks and cleaned very well but this new one has a wash bar under each rack and makes a huge difference. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher We replaced our old dishwasher with this little beauty and are very happy with our selection. It cleans as expected but is much quieter than we thought it would be. Only a few weeks into it but so far very satisfied and recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little dishwasher My husband and I just built a studio apartment above the garage and this little dishwasher fits very nicely. We can fit all our day’s dishes in it and run it once a day. Every loaf has come out very clean. It is pretty quiet.
