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.

18™€ Frigidaire Dishwasher

Great little dishwasher. Holds a good deal of dishes and bowls. Much quieter than the previous Kenmore dishwasher I had.

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.

Perfect in so many ways! Fits well in a small farm house kitchen. Easy to plumb. Easy to hookup electrical. Great size for my wife and I. Can be serviced by the appliance store it was purchased from, this is not a big box throw away appliance.

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

Great little dishwasher

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.

LanieP 3/23/2023

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.

Love it, except for the missing part

S Ma 3/10/2023

After 24 years of washing dishes by hand we renovated out kitchen and added a dishwasher. I was elated to see the delivery truck arrive with my new best friend. She was installed, shiny and new she made good friends with the other appliances and new cupboards and countertop. One glitch, the delivery guy said the rince holder was broken but he would contact the manufacturer to get a new one free if charge since it arrived broken. That was more than a month ago. Still no rince holder so it works but doesn't dry all that well. Amazingly frustrating how long it has taken for one little piece. You are still manufacturing this dishwasher. I'm certain all the other dishwashers have it. Losing confidence in Frigidaire quickly. Considering what else I could do with that open space. Unhappy at best.

Dishwasher has been in use two weeks with excellent results. Dishes come out sparkling clean. There are several cycle options to choose from.

Perfect Dishwasher For Small Spaces

Teh118 2/16/2023

Purchased this dishwasher because we did not have the space in our kitchen for a full size unit. Cleans and dries very well. The sanitizing feature is great for when you have someone that is ill in your family and you want to make sure your dinnerware is sterilized. Also very quiet. Extremely happy with my purchase so far.

Wildrvrlover 2/5/2023

Overall, we like this dishwasher! It's very quiet. And, despite its compact size, it holds a full-size load of dishes. It washes well and we've found that we don't need a rinse aid. One downside is that all the cycles are long. The shortest is an hour! Also, the controls were a little intimidating to start with. Definitely keep the manual on hand!

Even though this is smaller than a regular dishwasher, this one fit my awkward sized cabinets with ease and no longer do I have to wash my dishes by hand every night. Dishes have stressed me out since having moved to a house two years ago from a small apt that had a full sized dishwasher. I also want to point out that the stainless steel is fingerprint proof as well.

Needed a small dishwasher

Nate111222 1/19/2023

Was updating my farm house kitchen which never had a dishwasher. Couldnt fit 24" anywhere so this frigidaire 18" seemed like a good option. It's function is good, washes well. Fit and finish feels cheap though, especially $650+. Not bad, just very lightweight and flexible. I would buy it again, just with slightly lower expectations.

Aksnyder 1/16/2023

We love our 18 inch dishwasher. It was the perfect size for our kitchen without major cabinet work. We popped out one cabinet and it slid right in! It is small compared to your typical dishwasher but we are a family of three so it works for us. We use it sometimes 2-3 times per day and are happy to do so because it uses less water than washing in the sink. Cleans great. Quiet. We recommend it.

Broken down in just 2 times of using it, still not working after 4 months and hours to deal with customer service.

nhcustomer 1/5/2023

My old Frigidaire has been working great for 18 years. Got this new Frigidaire because the old one is too old to fix. Got it on Aug, after 2 successful loads, it starts getting the .4 (not i4 just a dot) error ever since. Made 5 appointments with technician and still getting the error. Frigidaire refuses to give my a replacement. The technician came up and just reset the error code then call it for the day. They finally replaced some parts in last appointment, but didn't test the it out saying they don't have time. Soon enough, the error come right back at the first load after the fix. Now I can't even get through the customer service phone line to get another appointment to check on the broken dishwasher.
