  • What is the difference between a stainless steel interior and a composite plastic interior?

    Plastic dishwasher interiors are durable, quiet, and offer optimal drying performance. They are also usually less expensive than stainless steel interiors. Typically these interiors are white, but many models offer a Granite Grey tone for a premium look and added stain protection.

    Stainless steel interiors offer the quietest wash, are durable, and provide the greatest resistance to stains. 

  • What is the difference between integrated controls and controls that are on the front of the dishwasher?

    There are two types of dishwasher control panels: integrated controls and front controls.

    • Integrated controls are located on the top lip of the door and are hidden when the door is closed. You simply choose your wash and dry settings using these controls, push start, and close the door. Any illuminated controls will dim and the dishwasher cycle will start.
    • Controls on the front of a dishwasher are visible when the door is closed. You can see them throughout the wash cycle.

  • What does Smudge-Proof™ mean?

    Frigidaire Smudge-Proof™ stainless steel features a proprietary protective coating that resists fingerprints and cleans easily. It’s one way our products help make kitchen maintenance virtually effortless.

  • How do I clean stainless steel?

    Cleaning your stainless steel depends on what type of steel your dishwasher is made of.

    • Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel does not require special cleaners. You can clean it using only a damp cloth.
    • All other Stainless Steel should be cleaned with our recommended cleaner, Ecosential by Smart Choice™ Stainless Steel Cleaner, or with Cerama Bryte® Stainless Steel Cleaner.

    When cleaning on any stainless steel appliance, we recommend that you avoid using harsh chemical cleaners containing vinegar or other acidic cleaning agents.

  • How can I ensure the best drying results?

    For the best drying results, try the following steps:

    • Select the Heat Dry option or the Sahara Dry option. When you run a high temperature or sanitizing wash cycle, it can give you the best drying performance
    • Use a rinse aid. Check to make sure the rinse aid dispenser is full. The dispenser window may show a dot to indicate its level, or it may function like a fuel gauge. If the dispenser is low, remove the cap and fill the reservoir.
    • For the best cleaning and drying performance, your incoming water temperature should be between 120 and 130 degrees. If you are uncertain if your water is the appropriate heat, check your water heater's temperature reading.
    • To help get the hottest water to your dishwasher, try letting water run in your sink until it’s hot. This "primes the pump" – it gets hotter water to your dishwasher faster. (Your dishwasher uses about 3-4 gallons per cycle, limiting the opportunity the water has to warm up if it doesn’t start off hot enough.)

    Some dishwasher models offer a Sanitize Rinse option, which delivers higher heat for maximum drying and ensures a 99.999% reduction of bacteria (as certified by the NSF).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean Gets dishes very clean, but draining is loud. Fits nicely

Rated 1 out of 5 by from failed in 2 months The dishwasher broke in 2 month, it took 2 and half more months and 3 trips for the authorized repairman to finally fix it! First trip, did nothing and left, after repeated calling, he said he could not remove the dishwasher from under the counter top. Why not tell us? We managed to remove the dishwasher and it took two weeks to get the repairman back to look at it again, he left without telling anybody what is wrong, after repeated phone calls, he said the pump was broken, and he ordered one, but ETD is indefinite! This is ridiculous! this is a rental property and we lose revenues during all this time! I have to call Frigidaire and complain to have them expedite the pump, another 2 weeks passed. It takes 2-1/2 month to fix this? The failed part is annoying enough, what it took to have it fixed is absolutely unacceptable! I own a lot of Frigidaire appliances. seriously thinking of switching brands now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overall! Bought it a month ago and very happy about it. Dishes are sparling after wash. Looks great in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought this to replace an old broken one. It’s very quiet when running and holds a lot for a small dish washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design I received this from my Son's for Christmas and was thrilled..It is so quiet I sometimes am not sure it is running and the dishes come out gleaming. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit for the modern space I bought to replace a 20 year old existing 18 inch. Nice modern update that fit perfectly into the existing space. Seems to be more efficient. Shipping was a month out

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine, especially for the price. I've had this dishwasher for about 2 months now and we have a family of 3, but host frequently (usually up to 6 in the house). The smaller width is great for saving space and I was surprised with how much it can hold as well as how well the inside is designed to hold various kitchen items. Certainly don't miss a full size dishwasher. It washes really well on both normal and heavy setting. The display is well organized and easy to use. My only gripe about this dishwasher is that it typically leaves everything still wet at the end of the cycle. Even with the heated dry on, I have to dry the dishes before putting them away. I haven't had this issue with other dishwashers in the past.
