FFBD1821MW is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frigidare 18" dishwasher Sorry to say not a happy review. Have bought many Frigidaire products in the past and have also been over the moon with there performance. since day one the dishwasher leaked. We called Home Depot where we bought it and was told they would have a representative get back to me asap. Waited over three weeks to finally being told I needed to call Frigidaire. I did and was given the phone # of a service repairman. He came out and said it could not be fixed as they do not and could not get the part. I then called back Frigidaire. They said they would send the part right out to my home. Waited a week and I called. told it was delivered to the address where the dishwasher was. Not my home address as I had requested. Was told it would go out the next day to my home address. That was last Monday. It finally arrived today 8 days later. No, I have to contact repair people again and have it installed. Sorry, but I am upset at this point.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed We waited a long tome to be able to buy this dishwasher, finally saved and purchased. The installation was easy and it looks great, however when we tried it for the first time it leaked from the lower right hand corner of the door - not a small leak either! Invesigated and found no obvious problem, defect. We tried using it again, even more water poured out of the door the second try. The company we purchased from said they will send a repair company out - so sad for us that a new product needs repair. It has been days now and the repair company has not called back - after several attempts to contact them. Now here we sit and wait, an expensive purchase and defective. We regret buying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use! I am sooooo happy with my dishwasher! It’s very quite and small but still gets the work done. I didn’t have room for a large dishwasher so this was perfect for my kitchen! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works beautifully It's been a couple of weeks now and it really works beautifully! The dishes come out clean and spotless. We are using the recommended Cascade platinum pods and finishing liquid. My only thing is sometimes the dishes aren't completely dry when done, which could just be condensation. We absolutely love it!
