Detailed Frigidaire Dishwasher Review - FGHD2465NF

Our Frigidaire dishwasher review of model FGHD2465NF makes your work easier when searching for the perfect 24 in built-in dishwasher. We’ve done all the leg-work, scouring the internet and summarizing both the key features and customer feedback for this model, right here in one place!

Overall, most customer reviews we found were very positive regarding this model.  It does what it says in terms of installation, load capacity, and ease of use. By far, the most rave reviews focused on the super quiet running and extra clean result of each cycle (even the shorter ones). This dishwasher looks good and seems to perform well overall. 

And it was rated one of the top 5 dishwashers of 2013 by

However, there were a few common complaints.

One frequently cited the tendency of the door to leak, especially at the end of the rinse cycle.

Another noted the fact that if there were larger plates placed in front of the soap tab, it often would not open correctly during the wash.

And we found a handful of consumers who reported that items such as the motor, control panel, and the pump broke only months into use (most were still covered under warranty, though).

What does this mean for you?

This Frigidaire Gallery FGHD2465NF looks good, is reasonably priced, and has excellent washing, drying, and noise reduction capabilities. It’s a built-in, with easy installation, and can handle one heck of a big load of dishes. But, as with nearly anything, the news isn’t all good. You should expect at least one or two operating issues, but for all the positives that come with this model (Energy Star, large capacity, extra quiet, powerful wash and dry cycles, etc.), you should feel pretty good about buying this dishwasher.
