Doesn't work like it should
by: Katie A.

I'm extremely disappointed. It takes me a lot of time and effort just to get clean dishes out of this ridiculous dishwasher and I do not recommend you even consider buying one.

It has never really cleaned my dishes. It's nearly new. I have had it for 1.5 years and only use it part time at my cabin. Not daily use. I have to hand wash before loading the dishes and then rinse or rewash after the dishes are "clean". It's kind of funny -- but not really. Now the detergent doesn't even dispense. It just hardens in the dispenser and I have to chip it out.

The troubleshooting manual is interesting. Every issue it addresses blames either the detergent, the water or me. I need to understand that this dishwasher is a delicate high-maintenance princess that needs a lot of attention, effort and ideal conditions before she can be expected to work.

Automatic dishwashers aren't new technology. Frigidaire is not a start-up. So what's the big deal about making a dishwasher that cleans dishes and doesn't involve me at all? How hard can it be?

For comparison, I have an 18" Danby at my full time home. Have had it for about 6 years. I use it 3x as often as the Frigidaire and it is much older. But it works properly and reliably to clean my dishes. Every time. Not one problem, issue or need for any kind of special treatment or special conditions.

The Frigidaire looks nice -- stainless and so on. I have been asked about many times and many times I have replied, "It doesn't work. Don't get one."

So, my advice is "It doesn't work. Don't get one."

Love it!
by: Nina

I recently moved into a co-op and my apartment is not very big but it is comfortable for 2. My kitchen is tiny so there is not much room for anything which is why we have the 18" Frigidaire dishwasher.

I got tired of constantly doing the dishes, I'm very particular about cleaning and I like doing everything by hand. But I started using my dishwasher and I couldn't be happier, it's not huge so it doesn't take up a lot of space and it is very quick since it does not use much water.

The dishes always come out completely clean and completely dry. It does not require much soap and between the both of us I only have to run it once every two days.

I would definitely recommend this dishwasher to any couple or household of 2. It saves so much time and money and it is a huge space saver. It is very reliable. It has never once broke down on me.

The dishwasher I use at work is too big for the family it is in. It never gets completely full and they find themselves running it with just a few things in it. It is a stainless steel Bosch. Although it is very appealing to the eye it is not very practical because it also takes forever for one cycle to be done.

Also, there have been plenty times when I have unloaded the machine and there has been some food residue left on dishes and glasses. The energy and water that this huge machine wastes is pointless.
