Oh my, this thing is quiet! I almost didn't know it was running. It sounds like rain on a window, not dishes being washed.
Speaking of washing, it does wash really well. I've loaded this dishwasher up as full as it gets and on the normal time and the scour setting, dried leftover bits of food were no problems.
I have to use the hi-temp dry setting to get things really dry, and it works quite well.
This is a classy looking dishwasher with the controls on the top. It has a display on the front that estimates time based on how dirty the dishes are. I'm not sure how accurate it is, but it's nice to see a countdown.
Overall, it's got good features at a great price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by archaeologist Frigidaire Gallery 24 in. Top Control Dishwasher
Spent almost $500 for this dishwasher but I expected it to last more than 2 1/2 years. Then the circulation pump quit working ~ replacement pump price- $137.50 / circuit board timer - $78.40 for the parts then add a $75 service call for a technician to determine the problem, then add his labor and you could have nearly bought a new machine. An extended warranty purchase would be my recommendation if you are going buy from Frigidaire. Personally, I don't have $500 to shell out for a dishwasher every 3 years.

The dishwasher works great. Cleans dishes well and the price was right. Only problem was the discharge hose was not a tight fit on the outlet port of the garbage disposal. Needed a clamp to tighten this up, easy fix. Not sure if it was a problem with the outlet hose or the inlet port though.

This dishwasher meets most of our expectations. It cleans the dishes well, even when they are not rinsed thoroughly. It is not as quiet as we would have expected, and the dished never seem to be thoroughly dry even on the Sahara Dry setting.

Leaked within first month of use, was repaired and worked for about 1 year until out of warranty and proceeded to have serviced on 3 more occasions and began to leak again to the point we had put a small container under it so our floor wouldn't get ruined. Also had to contact Frigidaire because the inside racks were melting and they sent us new ones however would not help us with the leaking. Never again!

We have had this dishwasher for about a year and a half.
1) First problem is it truly doesn't clean well. We pretty much hand rinse every dish before putting into dishwasher or the food will still be on the dish after its completed washing. To be fair, this is how every dishwasher I've ever owned has performed (have to wash before washing).
2) Secondly, normal sized plates are too big for the dishwasher's spinning arm to freely spin. We learned that we have to flip the plates in the opposite direction (opposite of the product design) for the middle sprayer to work. Otherwise, it will just hang up on any tall object and nothing gets washed. The same holds true for the top sprayer. See pictures I'm attaching.
3) If you failed to properly load the dishwasher so that all the arms can spin freely, you will wake up with puddles on your kitchen floor. There is obviously a defect in the door that allows water to escape when improperly loaded. My 7 and 9 year old kids often have the chore of loading the dishwasher, so proper loading techniques often get overlooked. I'm ok with a little crust on a dish or two because they didn't rinse before washing, but the water leakage problem is too much. I'm going to put this one on Craigslist and buy another brand. I'd recommend you stick with a reviewer like me that has lived with this unit for 1.5 years. Don't get this. You'll be sorry.
NOTES: assuming the pictures I'm providing come through, notice how just a slightly too tall spatula stops the sprayer arm..even though careful attention was made to reverse the plates. One little slip-up and you're either scrubbing crustys or mopping your floor.

We purchased this dishwasher when we moved into our new home to match our fridge. From the outside It looks very nice and Fingerprint-proof is good. However, the inside is horribly designed. It does not dry the dishes well. It leaves a nasty smell in my dishes from not drying completely. Not to mention after owning it for 10 months the plastic has peeled off the bottom rack and has totally rusted out! The company does not stand behind the product as was will to give me a 10% discount for a new rack, when their product is defective! Please do NOT purchase and waste your money. In my previous home, I owned a Bosch and loved my dishwasher!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Drew Stylish but Questionable Quality
This dishwasher looks great in a modern kitchen, and it has the features you would expect for the price point; however, I've experienced some minor issues. The "stay put" door spring is poorly constructed (i.e. - plastic hook attaches nylon cord to spring) and the spring broke. The stainless steel is very thin and subject to damage around edges of the unit where the door closes. Finally, the dishwasher does not fully dry a large load, even on "Sahara" mode. On a positive note, the dishwasher cleans a full load very well -- even on economy and energy cycles. The dishwasher is very quiet. Also, I have not experienced the leaks that other owners mentioned, yet.
