Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Sets you up for failure

SarahP 1/14/2022

Absolutely NOTHING you need comes with this product. We have searched multiple home depots for 50 cent bits and pieces. Unbelievable to me that you could purchase an expensive product such as this dishwasher only for it to show up with nothing you need to get it started. It would be like ordering a table with no legs. The manufacturer clearly does not care about the product it puts out when they immediately set you up for failure. Don't even get me started on the directions... Seriously shocked and disappointed.

18" SS Built-In Dishwasher

Biehn 1/6/2022

We are so happy with our Frigidaire dishwasher. When we redid the kitchen in our duplex in the fall of 2021, we needed to modernize and upgrade both the look and the workability of the space. Given all the windows, doors and other constraints, we had to find a solution. The 18" dishwasher is/was the perfect answer to a very difficult space and convenience problem. And it works perfectly. It is quiet, sleek looking, and provides enough dishwashing space to make clean up much easier and faster. We would recommend this dishwasher. We also purchased a Frigidaire refrigerator and are happy with the shelving space and the modern esthetic the SS finish brings to our 1910 kitchen.

Cheaper and cheaper for a similar price

SmhDishwasher 1/3/2022

Our first Frigidaire 18 inch dishwasher was pretty solid. It ran for about 13 years before it died. We replaced it with the same, but the second one only lasted barely 5 years and did not succeed with two repair attempts before we replaced it. We actually planned for our third dishwasher not to be a Frigidaire, but some unfortunate circumstances with our retailer made it necessary to pick the easiest dishwasher to quickly install in our current spot in the kitchen, so we went with a third Frigidaire against our better judgment. Cheap, flimsy construction. A front control console with black on dark gray buttons in tiny letters that is nearly impossible to read. Interior racks much worse than either of the two models before it, and seemingly designed by someone that never uses any dishes in their life. The washing cycles are minimally adequate, so I guess we are stuck with it. The countdown timer is the only improved feature that I have noticed.

Great little dishwasher!!!

KathyR284 12/29/2021

I love this Frigidaire 18" dishwasher. It will handle a lot of dishes/pots/pan in a load and does a wonderful job getting everything clean. Takes a little learning process of placement, but it gets easier as you learn. You do need to use the rinse aid as it really does help dry the dishes better. I have found the one-hour clean cycle works for me, it does a fantastic job cleaning and drying without the dry cycle. And the big plus with thisdishwasher...it is very quiet!

New Model Seems Cheaper Than Old One

KayKay196 12/17/2021

I recently replaced my aging dishwasher and, frankly, I'm disappointed. The new one seems very "plastic" and has NO chance of getting to the 23 year mark that my old one did. And, don't get me started about how awful the bottom rack & silverware basket are, they are basically non-functional (i.e. no way to wash a cookie sheet) and dinner places "nest" on each other regardless of how I load them. Old unit had two detergent holders, one for pre-wash and another for the longer wash cycle, this one has only one very small cup. Overall, this unit is FAR less functional and seemingly durable than my unit that I got circa 1998....

frigidaire 18" dishwasher

Les Da 11/30/2021

Dishwasher is a total piece of junk. Professionally installed. Worked 3 days then quit. Got an error code that claimed the thing was leaking. No leak located. Unable to contact frigidaire service. Saying they were experiencing higher than normal service requests. Maybe they should have more techs available and not be so cheap!!! Now stuck with a non-functional device that's worthless. Will NEVER buy frigidaire junk again.

18" dishwasher

BestEffinMomEver 11/30/2021

Expensive. Needed a smaller dishwasher but didn't expect the spacing inside to also be smaller. A bit disappointed by that. Drying isn't great. But dishes do come out clean. Serves it's purpose but not my favorite

Dave 46 11/10/2021

We've had many years of great performance with this machine. It cleans so well, even with a full load on "light" wash, and it's quiet to run. We've had some leaking under the door recently, and if it must be replaced, we'd get the same product.

Do not buy!

AnneL 10/19/2021

I was excited to purchase a dishwasher (my first in my life!) and decided to do a FULL sweep of all the Frigidaire appliances when renovating my kitchen. I™€™m thrilled with my refrigerator, oven, and microwave - my dishwasher is a completely DIFFERENT story! Thank GOD I bought the repair contract BUT here™€™s the kicker, I™€™ve had repair technicians out MULTIPLE times (ALL for the same problem, it runs half way through a 60 minute cycle and then throws a i4 error message). None can figure it out. They are baffled and have tried everything. Meanwhile. I have a dishwasher that in the 2 1/2 years that I have owned it, had MAYBE (and I™€™m being GENEROUS) worked for 1 year. I™€™ll sit waiting for a service technician and then a storm will come, the electricity surges and magically MJ dishwasher resets. I go to my master fuse box and turn off all the power to my house (note: this is a hardwired unit) and it won™€™t work. I™€™m at my absolute WITS END.. to pay SOOOO much money for a smaller unit and not have it functional for 70% of its life is VERY disappointing. Please save your money! Again, I™€™m thrilled with the other 3 Frigidaire appliances u purchased at the same time - but this one (dishwasher) is a piece of junk!

Without the smaller size option I wouldn't be able to have a dishwasher. It is very quiet and has many wash settings. My only wish would be that the control panel was easier to read and the indicator lights are to little and to dim.

RJFS 8/12/2021

My husband and I have been using ours for about a month now and I™€™m really happy with it! We have a small city kitchen and I was worried that a compact dishwasher wouldn™€™t really get the job done. So far have been really impressed and I can fit a surprising amount in there, it isn™€™t very noisy, and I like the option to have a 1 hour power wash.

Gets dishes clean

Frigidaire hater 7/24/2021

Gets the dishes clean but that's it. The length on the vertical pieces that hold the bowls up on the top rack is way to short. You put a bowl in and just falls over. The basket that holds the the knives, forks and spoons is way way way too small. Therte is no way to tell the level on much rinse aide, jet dry is left in the machine. The displays are way too small. You have to select normal, heavy wash. quick wash etc. then press the options button or dishes will not dry. This is just a stupid option. Who wants wet dishes?????. Are you people that stupid. This is the most cheaply built appliance I have ever bought. This appliance should have an optional rating for negative stars. One star is way way way tooo high.

This unit came with our RV. It is the perfect size and cleans dishes well. Remember to scrape dishes but don't pre-wash so the detergent can do its job! A 9x13 dish with baked on cheese came out clean. Like the options - different cycle lengths, option for sanitary wash and heated dry.

We are very happy with this dishwasher. We need a small one due to the layout of our kitchen and this one works great, looks beautiful, and is very quiet while running. It would have been more convenient if the utensil basket was in the front rather than the back of the bottom rack so as to avoid having to pull the entire rack out when not placing anything else on the bottom rack.
