Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

I™€™d like to be kind

Epiphany Jane 2/15/2024

But the installation kit was missing when we got the house back from the contractor. He lost it, never installed it. So the dishwasher is not bolted in place. Guess if Frigidaire can or will send me another installation kit? NO! They don™€™t make it anymore. They don™€™t exist anymore. No one can help me over there. They can™€™t find the parts!!!!! The dishwasher was bought in 2021 but never used. Now we™€™re back in the house and want to use it but we can™€™t bolt it in place because they don™€™t make the installation kit for this model anymore! It™€™s not that old! Never been used! What am I supposed to do? My new contractor is going to have to jury rig a contraption to bolt it in place. Thanks a lot for no support Frigidaire.

Appliance package for flip house

MattieM 2/8/2024

We ordered an appliance package for a house we flipped to include a dishwasher, gas range, and refrigerator. The price was a few hundred dollars less than our local retailer and got free shipping with my employer code. The appliance came within 1 week and arrived at the exact time we were told the day prior that they would. The delivery was smooth, even with our contractor accepting the delivery. I would recommend this company for your appliance needs due to cost and ease of the entire process.

I downsized all my appliances due to the small space in my kitchen. This 18" diswasher takes up less space and cleans amazingly! For the first time, I am actually putting dishes in the diswasher without scrubbing them clean first! Extremely happy with my Frigidare 18" dishwasher!!!!

18 inch Dishwasher

MrMikie 1/13/2024

My wife and I recently purchased a home for our retirement. We liked the house so much that we didn™€™t realize it did not have a dishwasher. We didn™€™t want to lose a full sized cabinet and searched the web for alternatives which is when we discovered 18 inch dishwashers, Frigidaire were the only company that had one available. I have never owned a Frigidaire appliance so I was a little hesitant, but purchased it because of need.I am so glad I did, after I removed the small cabinet next to our sink, installing the Frigidaire was a breeze. Great instructions and easy to reach components. We ran the dishwasher last night for the first time and we were surprised at how quiet and efficient it was. Perfect size for a retired couple!

S105 1/3/2024

I have never had a built in dishwasher only a portable. After many years, I needed to update a very small kitchen and was advised to purchase an 18 inch dishwasher. By doing this I was allotted more space, etc and added storage. I did my research then went to a local appliance store and purchased the Frigidaire dishwasher. It may be compact but it serves my purpose well. It is extremely quiet and does an excellent job of cleaning the dishes. I love the stainless steel interior. I would highly recommend this appliance to someone who has limited space along with Frigidaire's reputation.

Already Disappointed

Sad Return Customer 12/30/2023

Fails to remove tea stains. Dairy leaves a film on glassware. Spoke to chatbot which suggested hand wash those items. Seriously!?! The stainless steel interior dries after the door is ajar for several hours. Nice to have additional wash options but the sanitize is the only new feature I can imagine using. Labels on buttons are tiny.I chose Frigidaire because of durability of prior dishwasher which did a great job for 20 years of weekly use. Innovations have taken a giant step backwards. Dunning for additional warranty years is reinforces that this product is DEFINITELY lower quality.

Purchased the 18™€ Frigidaire dishwasher for my 1br condo remodel. Installation was simple and it cleans just as it should. Stainless steel tub and exterior give it a modern look while keeping the noise level at a minimum. Very good buy with Black Friday specials. Good product!

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.

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!

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.

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.
