Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mrsclean Not rinsing well
I had this installed July 1, 2015 and the biggest problem I'm having is that some dishes don't seem to get well rinsed - especially wine glasses. Even with jet dry, I almost always find streaks on the wine glasses and have to rinse them over. I've noticed spots on other glassware, too and I wonder how well rinsed the dishes are but just don't show left over soap the way glasses do. I'm going to try running just the rinse only cycle after the wash cycle. Otherwise, I don't think it is especially quiet or especially noisy. I replaced the cutlery basket with a Whirlpool one I bought on Amazon since the one that came with this dishwasher had several compartments which were too big and allowed the silverware to flop all around. So... average with concern about the rinsing.

This is a very nice dishwasher, love the blade spray. Only gripe is that the inside is a gray plastic, would have been nice if it were stainless inside, but I imagine it would be more expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrazzledMama Good basic dishwasher!
I really like this dishwasher. It fits a lot (bottom section is very deep!). The top section has a few adjustable pieces so things stay in place. Top front controls look stylish and are easy to operate. It even tells you when the cycle is done. Dishes come out perfect! Previous reviews said this was the quietest machine they've ever heard. I didn't think so (at some points it sounds like the water is spraying on the inside of the door), but it certainly wasn't loud. I guess I just expected a lot from previous reviews. If you want a decent dishwasher that does the job without breaking the bank, this one is great!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LovetoCook Worked great for 14 months but...
The layout and the racks on this dishwasher are great. I love that it is mostly a plastic interior as I am allergic to stainless steal and did not want all that on my dishes. However, this is what is causing the problems. The plastic nibs and nobs that hold each part together are failing. They have become soft and no longer hold the unit together. The spray arm is unstable as it can no longer be held in place. In addition, the smooth interior that in the past has allowed bits to wash away now collects scum and requires cleaning after one or two uses. The dishwasher design is great, the materials - not so.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Texgirl Only used once. Works fine.
This is an updated version of the original installed in the house. It lasted 14 years so we decided to go with it again. I've only used it once but it works fine. Quiet but so was the old one. Interior is dark grey rather than white so it is taking used to opening it all the way to be able to see inside. Fold up small bowl thingy doesn't stay depending on what I put in there -- small bowl kept pitching sideways. I read in the manual that the cycle would take longer due to energy saving and it did: 2 hours for a normal wash. Not terribly efficient in cleaning up after a dinner party but I'll just have to plan ahead.

We've had this machine for 2 years. Our first disappointment was the price.....we picked a low-end machine because the higher-end one we had before didn't last long. It turned out that we had to by add-ons to install this dishwasher, so the price is not as low as we expected. The machine was quiet at first, now a bit noisier, but not a big deal. It NEVER dried my dishes.....they come out soaked and have to be dried before being put away. It doesn't get the dishes clean......you really have to scrub them before putting them in, which begs theisquestion.....why have a dishwasher? Our dinner-size plates do not fit upright on either level, else the spinner on the top won't spin, so we have to lean them to get them to fir on the bottom. The black model is attractive, which is about all I can say for it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JJBB Meh...not as good as my 25 year old dishwasher
I was looking forward To replacing my 25 year old budget dishwasher with this new budget dishwasher. The old one cleaned well, but the spray arms would get clogged with junk; I had to disassemble it every 3 months or so to get it working again.
This new Frigidaire does not clean as well as my old one! One area that is especially bad is the bottom corners. The upspray does not reach there. Even a freshly used cup of smoothie won't get rinsed out if it is in a bottom corner.
This Fridgidaire has a filter basket in the bottom of the tub that can be removed and cleaned. It is not that hard to do, but can be tricky. At least I don't have to get out tools to remove, and rinse it out in the sink.
As for the controls: you have to select the settings each time you use it. I use standard wash, air dry, but have to select it every time. I wish it just defaulted to the last used settings.
