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.

Happy owner

Hot Wash 10/6/2021

Without the smaller size option I wouldn't be able to have a dishwasher. It is very quiet and has many wash settings. My only wish would be that the control panel was easier to read and the indicator lights are to little and to dim.

Although not a deal breaker when we were shopping, we thoroughly appreciate having the dishwasher in our 5th wheel RV. It saves water in the long run rather than washing by hand!!

Powerful for a compact dishwasher

RJFS 8/12/2021

My husband and I have been using ours for about a month now and I™€™m really happy with it! We have a small city kitchen and I was worried that a compact dishwasher wouldn™€™t really get the job done. So far have been really impressed and I can fit a surprising amount in there, it isn™€™t very noisy, and I like the option to have a 1 hour power wash.

Gets dishes clean

Frigidaire hater 7/24/2021

Gets the dishes clean but that's it. The length on the vertical pieces that hold the bowls up on the top rack is way to short. You put a bowl in and just falls over. The basket that holds the the knives, forks and spoons is way way way too small. Therte is no way to tell the level on much rinse aide, jet dry is left in the machine. The displays are way too small. You have to select normal, heavy wash. quick wash etc. then press the options button or dishes will not dry. This is just a stupid option. Who wants wet dishes?????. Are you people that stupid. This is the most cheaply built appliance I have ever bought. This appliance should have an optional rating for negative stars. One star is way way way tooo high.

Texas RVer 7/3/2021

This unit came with our RV. It is the perfect size and cleans dishes well. Remember to scrape dishes but don't pre-wash so the detergent can do its job! A 9x13 dish with baked on cheese came out clean. Like the options - different cycle lengths, option for sanitary wash and heated dry.

The dishwasher came installed in our new K-Z Durango Gold 5th-wheel RV. I was skeptical about its performance since it was only 18" wide, but I was wrong! It has everything a full sized dishwasher has and functions perfectly. We are so glad to have it and use it every day.

SheilaMc 6/25/2021

We are very happy with this dishwasher. We need a small one due to the layout of our kitchen and this one works great, looks beautiful, and is very quiet while running. It would have been more convenient if the utensil basket was in the front rather than the back of the bottom rack so as to avoid having to pull the entire rack out when not placing anything else on the bottom rack.

Raine90 6/25/2021

My old Frigidaire dishwasher finally needed replacing after many years so I naturally looked to Frigidaire for a new one. This fit perfectly into the previous spot. It is quiet and efficiently cleans my dishes spotlessly. My only quibble is that the Rainesettings are a little hard to see, but I'm geeting used to thar. Excellent product.

Nice dishwasher that saves space.

Dk1706 4/5/2021

This 18" dishwasher is what was exactly needed to fit in a small kitchen. It was a choice between a small kitchen sink with a 24" dishwasher or a Larger sink with an 18" dishwasher. Decided on the latter. It saves space fits just right. Cleans well and especially enjoy the 1-hour wash to quickly clean and rinse the dishes to save time. As well as conserving water. Looks great, too.

Racks and flatware holder need redesign

HBRipley 2/8/2021

I bought this dishwasher in 2019 to fit in the space that was once occupied by a cabinet in my small kitchen. The dishwasher does a great job cleaning dishes and it does it quietly. The materials appear to be very durable and it has sufficient wash cycles. My biggest complaint is the design of the racks and the size and location of the flatware holder. I never expected this small dishwasher to hold as may dishes as a full size dishwasher, however, it seems that Frigidaire designed it with that in mind. The plate dividers are way too close together. My plates do not fit between them so they have to lay flat instead of standing on end. Three full size plates take up the whole bottom rack. The flatware holder is also way too large and is in the middle of the rack making it difficult to arrange larger items around it. If I were to redesign these items, I would double or triple the spacing between the plate dividers or make them removable so the customer can customize the size for their own needs. In addition, I would move the flatware holder to the edge of the rack and reduce its size by at least half. With these changes I would get more dishes washed in one load than I do now.
