Falsely Pictured
by: Anonymous

Kickplate looks nothing like the photo. It's a short strip with the DW works and the baseboard trim exposed. Plus, there are 2 vertical slots where the unfinished light gray plastic shows through. After 2 letters (1 Sears, 1 Frigidaire) 3 customer service contacts, I ended up with 2 more of the same kickplate and one too high to fit under THEIR DW. Sears response was to return the DW they installed.

DW works OK, except the bottom rack doesn't roll right. It catches on the door almost every time. My Kitchen Aid didn't. Also, short tines on rack make it difficult to load.

Better than hand washing. Not the best DW I had, and, we usually spend about the same. Like how the door looks. Is quieter than 7 yr old DW it replaced.
