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 and 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.

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

Compact and Efficient

Submitted by Compact dishwasher - 1/26/2023

It runs great. Very quiet too! Great for apartments and condos ! Only complaint is that certain small appliances cost more than larger ones. Would recommend and will buy another one in the future if I buy another condo.

Noisy

Submitted by Ed Harris f - 1/15/2023

I like the control options. My only complaint is the when the unit pumps out the water it makes a lot of noise at the end of that cycle. The pump vibrates way to much!!

Frigidaire - 18" Built-In Dishwasher is just what I needed.

Submitted by twinpars - 1/3/2023

The Frigidaire - 18" Built-In Dishwasher is compact for small apartment. No need to wait a week to accumulate enough dirty dishes to make it worthwhile to run. I can run it often and not worry about wasting the space in a bigger washer. And it cleans well and quiet. I just luv it for what I need.

18™€ dishwasher

Submitted by Gem75659 - 12/27/2022

I just recently replaced a 10 year old Frigidaire 18™€ Dishwasher with a new one. It runs much quieter than the old one, and the energy saver mode cleans the dishes very well and everything is dry when the cycle is complete. The set-up has changed a bit, but it holds a lot of dishes. The utensil holder has been improved to hold more cutlery. Would recommend this appliance.

18™€ Dishwasher

Submitted by Gem75659 - 12/27/2022

I just replaced my 10 year old Frigidaire dishwasher with a new one and am very pleased with it. It is very quiet and the utensil basket allows more silverware to be placed in it than my previous one. The energy saver mode does a good job, so I use it a lot. It cleans and dries all the dishes very well. I would.buy this appliance again and would recommend it.

Good basics, high price

Submitted by McGilicuhdy - 12/5/2022

We needed less capacity since our children are all grown so we chose to put in the smaller, 18", dishwasher. We had no idea smaller would be more expensive than the full size dishwasher. The appearance is good and the basics work well. We get best results when we rinse all the dishes first and don't include pots and pans.

For a compact dishwasher...

Submitted by BritnieRN - 12/4/2022

This little thing fits more than expected and washes well. It is certainly an upgrade from no dishwasher at all. Only draw back is that the regular wash cycle is over two hours long...not sure what's average, but that seems long. We usually just run overnight so it doesn't bother us too much.

Submitted by JJ Kona - 9/12/2022

Unfortunately the choices for 18 inch dishwashers are limited. Fortunately the 18 inch Frigidaire is a great dishwasher. This unit is smartly designed and does an excellent job cleaning. As an appliance repair tech I was impressed with its overall quality. The dishes come out squeaky clean and dry.

My little dishwasher

Submitted by JJan78 - 7/26/2022

We recently did a kitchen refacing and since I never had a dishwasher due to space issue we decided to purchase the 18™€ one. It fits perfectly, cleans like a charm and I only lost a small cupboard. It™€™s perfect for my husband and I. Wish I™€™d gotten one sooner.

Extra quiet and super efficient

Submitted by Mr_Jigglesworth - 7/16/2022

We just bought an old house which did not have a Dishwasher. After measurements, one side of our cabinets is 18" and the other side "without water" is 24".As we are just a husband and wife without kids, the 18" washer was perfect. As a matter of fact in our last home we had a full size washer, but took a long time to fill it. This little guy fits our needs better, uses less water, and is super quiet. My dogs appreciate it possibly more than I do.

Apartment size Dishwasher

Submitted by htfrye - 7/6/2022

Excellent machine for the price. We purchased from an appliance warehouse for less than retail value. I installed myself and instructions were competent. Machine is quiet for the most part. Certainly a great product for our situation. Dishes are cleaned well, with few watermarks.

We got a lemon

Submitted by Sissy13 - 4/14/2022

Our dishwasher was a lemon from the start. It left tons of water in the bottom after the first time running it. We tried it again the next morning and it started pouring water all over the floor! We tried pushing the cancel button and it did nothing?! We opened the door to stop it...it kept running!! AND dumping water on the floor! We had to shut it off by turning it off at the breaker. The place we bought it is getting us another one, but it will be another 2-3 weeks before we have a dishwasher. A total of 5 weeks with no dishwasher. I am really tired of doing dishes by hand.

Holds a lot

Submitted by Dishwasher fan - 3/29/2022

This dishwasher holds a lot. Washes well. The plate tines are a bit close together, so they only work with flat plates. The door tries to close by itself when fully open, so I have to slide the bottom tray out to keep the door down while loading. I'm glad I replaced the old dishwasher.

Submitted by SmilinBob31 - 2/22/2022

We were going to select another brand but it wasn't available for four months. Far too long to be without a dishwasher. Fridgiaire was ready in just a few weeks, The DW is very quiet and works quite well. The previous DW lasted 20 years, Hoping this will go as long.

Prefer the one I bought in 2004

Submitted by LTC P - 2/15/2022

I don™€™t like this dishwasher as much as I did the Frigidaire I bought in 2004. It™€™s much quieter and does a good job but I do not like the trays.! The slots are too close together and some of the bigger dishes don™€™t fit. I removed the silverware container to make space for bigger items. The older trays were better suited to my dishes etc.! Also the dishes were coming out wet and had to be dried even on high heat/heat dry. Never happened with the other one. Adding rinse aid helped clear that up. I just wish the trays had wider slots!

Submitted by Cate38 - 1/31/2022

In remodeling my kitchen, adding a dishwasher was a must. Due to the size of the kitchen, the only option was an 18" apt. sized dishwasher. This machine packs a powerful punch and works just as well as a standard sized dishwasher, with just as many cleaning options/functions.

Little Dishwasher, BIG Performance!!

Submitted by Mrs Schnimpson - 1/3/2022

This little dishwasher is delivering all I could have asked for! I have very limited space, and I have had a different brand 18" dishwasher before that left me doing the dishes by hand afterwards. I decided to give it one more chance, so I opted for the Frigidaire. What great results! Cleans like a champ and runs quiet!! Very pleased with this purchase!
