Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good 18in. Dishwasher This dishwasher is a quality product at a reasonable price. Does not include the bells and whistles of a larger model, but if if there are space concerns, this is a cost effective solution of any kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Buy! We were looking for a compact dishwasher that combined features with values in a small package. The Frigidaire 18 inch looked good based on its feature list, customer reviews and reasonable price. I was especially pleased it has features often found on bigger and higher price dishwashers such as a stainless steel tub, dual sprayers and a strong heating element for drying. We’ve been very pleased with the results as our dishes have come out beautifully clean and sparkling. The noise level is also minimal. We are very pleased!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solved my kitchen dilemma I needed to switch from a 24-wide dishwasher to an 18-inch wind one to solve a problem with supporting the counter top. This one not only solved that problem, but it's beautiful and perfect for my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so great! I bought this for our newly remodeled kitchen. When I first installed it, it didn't work. I called customer service (which I found through the website, the one in the manual didn't work) and they arranged for a tech to come and take a look. He came, got it working and it seems to work well. Could be quieter but it's not bad, there are dishwashers that are much louder. In the other room I can barely hear it. Seems to clean well although the racks and utensil bin took a minute to figure out. Quite happy over all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet I do wish the silverware caddy was a little more flexible for my utensils.
