The dishwasher installer was absolutely the best. My home is over 50 years old and the new dishwasher would not fit exactly right in the opening, but the installer did a great job in making the proper adjustments so that the unit would fit properly. The unit itself is all that I expected and more. It cleans my dishes very well and is very quiet. I consulted with an online rep before I purchased it and she was very helpful in helping me make a decision that best suits my needs. I am very satisfied with the whole purchase process, from being to end.

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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sal1950 Quiet and cleans well
Seems well built for the low cost. I was impressed at how quietly it ran compared to my old dishwasher. Cleans dishes very well but drying leaves something to be desired. If anything has any concave area on the top, water will be left pooled there. But to honest it was the same with the unit it replaced.
Ask me again in 5 years and lets see how it holds up, cause in the end that's the most important thing, reliability.
Was a time you could buy a new appliance and expect many-many years of service, today it's a dice roll.

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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lucky Feature I like especially the quiet operation
Price is reasonable with up-level nylon racks, food disposal and the way the spray heads alternately run to allow for quiet running is great. Also the quick clean selection is just right for daily dishwashing light loads, 48 minutes in all.
