Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Good little washer so far

KateCat 11/30/2023

I've only used it twice so not long enough to make much of a critique. So far it is running well and cleans good. It doesn't seem any louder than other dishwashers.

Trying to manage the change

Aheis1130 11/23/2023

I never accept change well so there are a couple of things I™€™m having a problem with. 1. The drawers are lower which are not as easy on my back. 2. The buttons on the front are not easily read™€"faint and at a level that makes it difficult to read. 3. Maybe too many choices of how long and what each length will do. But the actual function of cleaning the dishes is just fine. And it is very quiet. Sometimes I forget it™€™s on.

18" Built-In Dishwasher

LMND 11/15/2023

We deliberated whether or not to install a dishwasher for our kitchen remodel and am so happy we did. Spacing was tight and our designer recommended the Frigidaire 18" dishwasher which she has in her kitchen. It will definitely take care of our needs.

Crazy clean 11/8/2023

I never expected an 18 inch wide dishwasher to hold much but I cooked a full dinner for 6 and everything but 1 Cookie sheet fit into it. And it cleans my dishes an with the dsi being 52 I thought it would be noisy nope you can™€™t even hear it run. I love it very pleased. SDavis October 2023

18" Dishwater

Walkadog 10/27/2023

I have installed quite a few dishwasher in my time but this by far was one of the hardest installs I have ever done. Maybe its the fact that it was a 18" and this is the first install I have done with one. Anyway it seems to work well as far as iI can tell. However I have a slow leak at the water connection because I cant get my 90 degree connection to tighten more because it hits the side of the machine. I know that would stop the leak if I could tighten a little more. So design on your water inlet could have been better. Have taken the dishwasher out 3 times to tighten that and put more teflon tape on it. It still slowly leaks and im hoping that it will finally quit with some mineral build up.

Quietest dishwasher in the world

Qt70 9/12/2023

Quietest, most thorough dishwasher I've ever had. The best thing about it is that the dishes are incredibly clean after washing, which, of course is important. The final item is that the way the dishwasher is set up inside, placing off various types of dishes, bowls, works fine for our family.

Frigidaire 18" Dishwasher is great!!

Sarah3gl 8/19/2023

So far, so good. We went with the 18" dishwasher since there are only 3 of us. It's perfect for our household. We run it every 2-3 days and it holds plenty! It's quiet, the dishes come out spotless and almost dry even without using the "dry" function. Definitely saving water using this too!

Just what we needed

Sam Jenkins 8/11/2023

My wife and I bought the dishwasher for our antique mobile home. The home is from the 70s, but we have lovingly repaired, decorated, and updated it to be a sweet little place to escape the heat. The dishwasher works very well. It is quiet and adequate for the needs of two people. Frigidaire's technician fixed the appliance after Lowes' installers had problems.

NO WATER CODE

ittybittyhdg 7/23/2023

Well i'm on my second service call in less than 6 months for code showing not getting water. 1st service call was a switch which took 3 weeks for the service facility to get. Now it's showing the same code again and i can't get the code to clear as the service tech showed me how to do. Not happy with this constant issue.

Frigidaire 18" dishwasher

JoyFB 7/6/2023

Our new dishwasher is doing a great job of cleaning glasses, plates, silverware and greasy pots and pans and other oily/greasy dishes. We chose the stainless-steel front, and it fits in with our kitchen very well. Also, it's much quieter than our previous dishwasher.

Very nice dishwasher

Texas 77320 6/5/2023

I was concerned with a smaller footprint for my dishwasher worrying that it would not perform like a regular size dishwasher but boy was I wrong! This bad boy is very quiet with several options for cleaning, energy efficiency, sanitizing, and heated dry. The stainless steel tub is a plus too. It has a state of the art food removal feature as well. If you need a top notch smaller dishwasher, this Frigidaire is a great investment in my opinion. I™€™ve always been impressed with Fridgidaire because my wall over is 62 years old and still works like a charm. Thanks for yet another great product Fridgidaire!!! Five stars!!!

Overall decent but quality feels a bit light

FKZADAMS 5/15/2023

We were/are thrilled to have a built-in dishwasher in our new KZ Durango Gold camper. The dishwasher works well but I would have expected a more solid build of the product. The racks feel a bit flimsy and don't glide smoothly on the tracks. You almost have to be a bit aggressive with it to pull them out to load/unload. Again, thrilled to have it but would have appreciated/been willing to pay for a higher build quality.

The Dreaded i4 Error

AntiMoz 4/10/2023

We have owned this dishwasher for approximately 2.5 years with out issue. About 3 months ago the unit stopped working and showed what appears to be the very common i4 error. (Water flow or leak). We had a Frigidaire technician out to diagnose the problem. There was water in the base of the unit under the dishwasher. He dried out the unit, reset the code, leveled and reinstalled the unit. He advised us to not use the "normal" amount of prepackaged detergent as it creates too much suds for a small unit. We followed these directions and things were fine for about a month. Over the past week the error has reappeared twice. Reading this forum this appears to be a very common problem for which Frigidaire does not have a clear resolution for. We love this dishwasher when it is working but if we can't resolve this problem quickly it will lead us to replace this relatively expensive unit with another manufacturer's model before its expected lifetime

Cabinkitchen 4/6/2023

My wife and I live in a small cabin in the Sierra. Our kitchen is small too so years after remodeling our kitchen we decided to take a cabinet out and purchased this dishwasher to go in its place. Glad we did! Small but works great for us and it™€™s quite too! Our living room is right next to the kitchen so it™€™s nice having a quiet dishwasher too!

pleased with our FFBD1831US0A

Suki Boots 4/4/2023

I selected Frigidaire since a lot of their appliances are made in USA and it was the same brand as the refrigerator (made in Mexico) and stove we purchased. The label did not state where it was manufactured, but the microwve we got at the same time noted that the corporate office was in Charlotte, NC. It also was the only 18' Built-In Dishwasher Frigidaire currently produces. Does not have a smudge proof finish, but cleans nicely. It seems quiet enough considering it is a dishwasher. If you do not select the heat dry, the inside is very damp at the end of the cycle. I have yet to use the heat dry feature.It came packaged well and had no damage noted. We only had Lowes bring it in to the home. We unpackaged it and installed it ourselves. It should be noted that we are DIYers and have lots of various tools which made the installation smoother. But of course had issues with old plumbing like cutoff valves dripping afterwards which also had to be fixed.

Living alone, I didn't think I needed a dishwasher, but now I don't know how I got by without one. It's such a time saver, as well as using less water than hand washing my dishes. Even after waiting for two or three days to have enough in it to run it, the dishes come out beautifully clean.
