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.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BradyBunch Terrible from day 1.
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.

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 machine cleans as well as as the least quality apartment grade machines. It does not dry your dishes. It uses a CPU cooling fan for a dryer and since you never hear it how much drying can it really be doing--NONE. Everything is always wet. I did like the basket arangements for loading. I replaces 2 computer boards $129.00 each and a digital button pannel (flimsy stainless sheet metal dents easily like a pop can) $140 and the cooling fan unitl $80 and a pump (design flaw) $120. These charges are materials only not labor. All parts are very expensive. After 3 Frigidaire DW that went kaput I won't buy another one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Warty Mostly a good product
I am a contractor that purchased this for a small remodel project. I have discussed it with my clients, and looked at it myself.
This Dishwasher is relatively nice for the price. It is fairly quiet, has many different settings, including various delays on washing times, etc. The client's main complaint seems to be with the drying of the dishes. The household water is very hot, and even with the hot water, and on the "Sahara" drying setting, the dishes do not seem to fully dry. The dishwasher was easy to install (and the home depot delivery service was friendly, professional and fast!)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by myhouse385 Company Does Not Stand Behind Product
My dishwasher is less than 1 year old. It floods intermittently and has damaged my new wood kitchen floor. I cannot run it unless I am home to babysit it. I was told by Frigidaire that before I could return the product I had to allow them to "repair it." When they could not repair it, I was told my 7 day window to return the product was over. So I am out the money for this machine and the money for my new floor. Please avoid this company this company at all costs.
